It's time for our April club meeting! This time, we're headed to the MoreBeer Distribution Center in Ambridge, PA. If you've been brewing for very long, then you know that MoreBeer is an exccellent resource for just about any homebrew supply you might be looking for. We'll be heading out to their East Coast distribution center, holding our typical meeting, and touring the facility while we're there.

Ability to supply at least 3 kegs containing more than 3 gallons of beer each. If you've seen us at our beer fests we change beer every hour. You must be able to do so.
You must be able to make load in. Last year load in to the Clipper had to be completed by 4PM, this year may be different. This will be an even bigger event and load in rules may change but please keep this in mind. We don't have any confirmation of this but if you work it might be wise to call off or use a half day.
Commonwealth Press T Shirt Show:Thursday May 1st @ 6PM(Subject to change, maybe 7PM) at Commonwealth's Warehouse next to the Brimingham Bridge in the Southside. This is where local screen printers and artists show off their work and you pour beer for the attendees. This is a personal favorite event and is a good time, should wrap up around 10PM.

Ability to bring beer, doesn't matter if bottled or kegged, just bring a case worth to share.
Check back for here as events are still being finalized and more may crop up. Release the Firkins this year is being limited to competition winners to avoid confusion in the voting process for Best Firkin.

In a little over a month, we'll be celebrating the 3rd Annual Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week. In previous years, the club has participated in several different events over the course of the week. We've hosted brewing demos, participated in beer festivals, and promoted homebrewing in whatever other forums we can.
Last year, we were invited to more events than we have homebrew or members to support. In other words, there is plenty of room for additional participation. If you're interested in contributing a keg, now is the time to start brewing!
We'll send out more email later this month as specific opportunities start to appear. If you have any questions or are interested in particular events, feel free to respond to this message.
Don't let the "Serious" part of our name scare you off. If you have an interest in homebrewing come to one of our meetings and check it out. There is lots of good food and of course homebrewed beer. If you have any questions ask on the contact form.
