TRASH at Ohiopyle Beer and Gear (and other notes)

E-mail sent by Jack Smith, Friday, May 15th, 2015 @ 7:48am

Hey homebrwers!

TRASH has once again been invited to pour at the Beer and Gear festival in Ohiopyle State Park on Saturday, June 20th.  If you're a dues-paid member and you'd like to pour your homebrew at the TRASH booth, get in touch with us at  There are six pouring slots available.  You must bring two kegs of homebrew.  The festival is from 3:30 - 7:30 on Saturday, but the TRASH folks typically make a weekend of it, tent camping with the pro-brewers on (Friday and) Saturday night.  White water rafting is available on Sunday if that suits your fancy.

Meeting this Sunday
Don't forget we're meeting at Grist House this Sunday at 12:30.  Please get there on time, because we're starting the meeting right at 12:30 so we can wrap up before Grist House opens to the public at 2:00.  Come hear competition ringer and club VP Andy Weigel talk about brewing for competitions.  Bring homebrew to share.  As always, please show your support of these great places that host us by having a pint or two from the bar.  And come hungry & bring cash; Brassero Grill will be on site starting around 1:00.

Nemacolin Five-Alarm Mountain Madness Chili Cookoff
Saturday, June 13th, 2015 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM
We need just one more homebrewer with two full kegs each to round our our booth.  If you participate, in addition to getting to experience the chili festival you get a complimentary night's stay at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort at a later date of your choosing.  If you're interested, email us!

Sharp Edge Great European Beer Festival
Saturday, June 27th and Sunday, June 28th, 2015
- There are three sessions: Saturday 3-6pm, Saturday 7-10pm, Sunday 2-5pm.  We need two brewers with two full kegs each for each session, for a total of six brewers.
- Want to participate but don't have beer available?  Sharp Edge is also looking for 6-8 volunteers per session to pour commercial beer at the event.  They'd love to have TRASH members volunteer for this because of our knowledge and love for beer.
- If you pour beer at a session (your homebrew or commercial beer at one of the other tables), you will receive a ticket to attend one of the other session as a guest. (Due to demand, the free ticket cannot be used for the Saturday 3-6 session.  It must be used for either the Saturday 7-10 or the Sunday 2-5 session.)
- If you're interested, email us
 Let us know which session you want to pour at, and if you want to pour your own homebrew or if you want to volunteer to pour commercial beer.  Also let us know which session you want your free ticket for (cannot be session 1).
