We’ve been asked to participate in the Cooper-Siegel Community Library’s How to Fest on September 10. There looking for someone (or several someones) to come and give a roughly 20-minute talk on homebrewing. This would be a great opportunity to share your enthusiasm and expertise with the community, and no demos required. Please see the invite below and contact Kelley Beeson directly if interested.
The Cooper-Siegel Community Library is planning it's very first How To Festival on Sunday September 10th from 1-5 PM. Haven't heard of a How To Festival? It's an hours-long learning extravaganza where the library becomes a giant classroom filled with multiple stations of volunteers teaching 20-minute sessions on topics such as:
oHow to Make a Fidget Spinner
oHow to Do Your Makeup Like a Pro
oHow to Have an Amazing Pittsburgh Staycation
oHow to Groom Your Dog
We want to fill the library with ALL kinds of learning opportunities! Anything, really; from the very small, fun and frivolous, to the major and more complicated. We're looking for hobbyists, enthusiasts, experts, practitioners and teachers who would love to share their passion, hobby or talent with others! Would you be willing to join us as a volunteer and contribute your expertise in homebrewing? We'd love to have a session on a specific element regarding homebrewing, like choosing materials, finding support and community and resources, educating your palate, anything! You would be a great addition to our learning lineup! Our planning committee is hoping this inaugural festival is pretty spectacular as we want to make this an annual library event!
Please let me know if you're able to participate as soon as possible so that we can make sure the day is a big success! Looking forward to hearing from you!

Quick announcement: East End will be tapping the first keg of Rich Romanko's Munich Helles on Tuesday, June 20 at 5 pm at the brewery on Julius st. Rich earned this pro-am with East End by winning the Turtle Creek award at the TRASH XXVII competition. Come on out, raise a pint or two and then take a growler home!
Meeting Reminder: Our June meeting is coming up at Chris Meta's house. Please RSVP for yourself and any guests either to the meeting invite on groupspaces or on Facebook (or both). Chris puts out an awesome spread, but he needs to know how many mouths to feed. Oh, and this meeting is family-friendly.

There's a pouring opportunity coming up on September 8 with the Leechburg Volunteer Fire Company's Freedom Fest. The Brew Fest potion of the event is Friday night September 8 from 6-9 pm. They are requesting 15 gallons per brewer (it's geared more towards probrew than homebrew), but they would accept less. There is an application attached.
