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.

We've been contacted by the Carnegie Science Center. They're looking for a person (or persons) to give demo and talk about the home brewing experience, or something along those lines. Please see the email below for details. If interested, please send me a note.
The Carnegie Science Center is hosting its annual "21+ Science of Beer Night" on July 28, 2017. We would love for Trash Home Brewers to join us this year!
This event is part of our monthly 21+ Night series, when we open our doors after hours for adults to enjoy the Science Center with no kids. Join local breweries, craft beer enthusiasts, and science lovers for a fun filled night that includes live music, cash bars, and beer science. Every year we invite local breweries to offer samples, sell beer and get in on all the science of beer fun. We would love if you could participate this year. Below I have provided some basic information about participating in the event. What we would need from you: Demonstrate the home brewing process and talk about the home brewing experience. We could also work together to create a science related demonstration or have you speak on our Science Stage. What we would provide: TRASH Home Brewers included in our marketing (Social Media, Press Release, etc) Free Admission DATE: Friday, July 28, 2017 TIME: 6:00 - 10:00 pm *Set up can begin at 5:00 pm when the building closes to the public LOCATION: Carnegie Science Center *Breweries will placed among our exhibits and can load/unload from our loading dock and use the freight elevator to access the appropriate floor.
