About this Event

Very Local, Very Fresh: Meeting The People Where They’re At is a panel discussion and tasting event focused on access, education, and opportunities in the beer community, presented by Very Local Pittsburgh & Fresh Fest Beer Fest (the first black brew festival in America).

We're hoping to eliminate some financial (and even geographic) barriers associated with conventional beer festivals with this mini-beer event, where we will be discussing opportunities for breaking into the craft beer industry. How do we improve diversity and inclusion in the beer community? By increasing the number of African-American, female, and LGBTQ+ folks who are owners, brewers, beer reps, and even just beer enthusiasts. Craft beer is for everyone and representation matters. Plus, come meet one of the owners of Harris Family Brewery, the first black-owned craft brewery in Pennsylvania.

Don't know much about craft beer? We will be talking about that and doing some tasting, too. All levels of beer enthusiasts welcome.

Panelists:

Ali Wyrostek of Rhinegeist Brewery

Brandalynn Armstrong of Zeroday Brewing

Tim White of Harris Family Brewery

Christine Hallenbeck Union Craft Brewing

Mike Potter of Black Brew Culture / Fresh Fest

Tom Poet of Hop Farm Brewing

Panel moderated by Briana L. White, Breelicious Bites & the New Pittsburgh Courier
