GBGCBW Has Two Bookend Events You Don’t Want to Miss

Greensburg Craft Beer Week is scheduled to come your way Friday, September 21st thru Saturday, September 29th and will look to build on the success of last year’s inaugural festivities. 2017 saw the debut of craft beer celebration to the east of Pittsburgh, with several bars, breweries, restaurants, and businesses throughout the region joining forces to showcase the strength craft beer has played on their corner of the world. Events including firkin bashes, beer + yoga, samplings, beer dinners, and more comprised a calendar of over 30 events and 2018 promises to take on a similar complexion.

Two big happenings have hit the schedule and will serve as GBGCBW’s signature events. The first is Home Brew & Chill – an event featuring a home brew competition and beer tasting at All Saints Brewing Company that will give you an opportunity to sample beers from home brewers and professional brewers alike. All of the Greensburg Craft Beer Week collaboration beers will be flowing as well and you’ll have a say in the choosing of the best home brew in the house! All this paired with food trucks, live music, a photo booth, and GBGCBW swag for you to grab.

This is a ticketed event and sales will begin in the near future. Follow the event on Facebook for all the details.

To close out GBGCBW, the brewers are going to get sloppy. Even more so than usual…

It’s the first-ever Brewers Double Dare! This callback to the popular 90s TV game show will feature participating breweries going head-to-head answering beer-centric questions, competing in messy physical challenges, and tackling a difficult obstacle course to determine the champion.

More information about this event will be coming soon. Follow on Facebook so you don’t miss a thing.

“We’re really excited to host two signature events this year,” said Jessica Hickey, Founder and Event Director for Greensburg Craft Beer Week. “One of our goals was to add at least one more after the success we had for the week last year. We had a lot of inquiries about having an event highlighting home brewers and we are also working with our friends from Moxie Events for Brewers Double Dare. There are a lot of great events in the works during the week and we’ve been reaching out to more breweries, bars, restaurants, and businesses in the area to encourage them to participate in some way.”

Greensburg Craft Beer Week is a Downtown Greensburg Project production. To learn more about these events, how you can become a part of GBGCBW, or connect with Jessica with general inquiries, click here.
