Get Ready For the Best(ish) In Olympic Competition
One of the most fun events of the year is almost upon us! The 3rd Annual Brewers Olympics is set to go down Sunday, April 30th starting at 2:00pm at Grist House Craft Brewery in Millvale. Once again, the Brewers Olympics will serve as the send off to Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week as it has since 2015. This year’s event will be co-MC’ed by yours truly and the one and only Malcolm Frazer.
The Brewers Olympics pits brewers and representatives from 16 local breweries in four different feats of strength, agility, and mental acumen…fueled very strongly by little sleep and plenty of beer. Olympics past have seen brewers flex their muscles in keg rolls, sixtel carries, grain bag untying races, blind taste tests, dunk tank trivia, and more.
