Last night sickpuppy and myself were invited to check out Beer School at the Cabaret in Theater Square. We haven’t made a big announcement yet so consider this your early heads up… we’re hosting the September session! Since we are hosting it was only fitting that we attend the session before us so we can have an idea what is going on.
First off, I can’t believe I have not attended one of these before. Then again with everything that has been going on this past year, free time isn’t exactly bountiful. The evening was incredible. For your $35 ticket you sample 4 beers, get an education on beer and also listen to a speaker. This session was Beer, Baseball and Brats with Robert Dvorchak from the Post Gazette and Tony the Beer Guy from Vecenie Distributing.
While reviewing our 4 beers (Bell’s Oberon, Erie Brewing Derailed Ale, Mama’s Little Yella Pils and Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA) Bob kept us entertained with stories covering the decades of service to the local Pittsburgh sports scene. The food for the evening was bratwurst on a pretzel roll with a vinegar tater salad. INCREDIBLE!
When the night was over we spent some time in the Backstage Bar which is located just outside the theater entrance. Decent craft beer selection but we were introduced to a Penn Dark with a shot of Starbucks liquor. Oh yeah, delicious is putting it lightly.
Check out Beer School if you get a chance and remember to support the local arts.
Had to keep this short as all of Pittsburgh is being flooded by an act of God.
