E-mail sent by Sean Kinnas, Thursday, April 20th, 2017 @ 6:33pm


There is a pouring opportunity at a fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters on June 10.  Please see the email from TRASH member Correy Dandoy below.  Please contact her at if you are interested in participating.  It sounds like a good time, and it's for a good cause.



Correy's email...

Hi Sean,

I wanted to reach out to the club about an opportunity for members to pour their beers at a fundraiser event this summer. Justin and I are both very involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters and sit on the Washington County Advisory Board. We are planning our first big summer fundraiser, a BBQ sauce competition, "Big BBQ Boss," for June 10 at the Community Pavilion in downtown Washington, PA.

The event will feature approximately 10 local BBQ-ers that will be judged by official judges as well as the general attendees, as well as entertainment and additional vendors. We are hoping to have a few homebrewers wiling to donate their beer and pour for the event. The event goes from noon until 4pm.

The cost of admission to this event will support BBBS in Washington and Greene Counties.

Let me know if we can share this information with the club. Anyone interested in participating can contact me directly (

Thank you for your help!

Beer and Gear at Wilderness Voyageurs in Ohiopyle on June 17.

We've been invited back to the annual Beer and Gear event at Wilderness Voyageurs in Ohiopyle on June 17

Club Member John Rozborksi has been going for some time, and always has a blast. 

Please see his note below.  If you want to coordinate with John, let me know and I'll get you his contact info.


Hello Sean, Chris, et al:
writing to confirm that TRASH is again invited to the annual Beer and Gear event at Wilderness Voyageurs in Ohiopyle on June 17. Here is a link:

I have always loved this event. truly fun.  They typically allow up to 6 people to come into the event for TRASH.  They do offer a pass for WW rafting anytime in the season, which is a pretty awesome perk for pouring beer.  They also print pint glasses that include every brewery and TRASH's name, which is a neat memento. 
Many of the pro-brewers camp up the hill, and BBQ, play music, drink special private cellar beers both Friday and Saturday night. TRASH members are free to also camp there. It is primitive camping. 
At the moment, I am intending to go, with at least one companion.

Would you please post and announce a "pouring opportunity" to the club so everyone knows and can also have fun? as usual, 1 keg per slot - up to 6 slots. 
Thank you!
