Meeting of the Malts Update

As noted earlier on these pages, we'll be hosting a new type of event for us at the Grand Hall in January -- a "Microbrew Summit" featuring some of the top brewers in Pennsylvania.  "Meeting of the Malts III" is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Brewers Association, and is set to take place on January 22 at our Grand Hall.  We've just gotten word that Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Food and Flavors editor Bob Batz, Jr. is going to moderate the highlight of the event -- a beer dinner with a panel made up of Chris Troegner of Troegs Brewing, Bill Covaleski of Victory Brewing, and Scott Smith of our Pittsburgh-based East End Brewing.  The panelists will discuss their roads to success, and their philosophy of beer making.  Beers will be paired with five courses of food selections from our own chefs, Pete Phillipy and Mike Henney.

There will also be pre and post dinner sessions with Bill (pre) and Chris (post).

Many thanks to Artie Tafoya of Appalachian Brewing for taking the lead in organizing this event, and in ensuring its success.

You'll want to purchase tickets soon as the event is already starting to fill up.  Tickets are $60 for dinner only, or $90 for all three events, and can be purchased by visiting here.
