As part of this semester of Post-Gazette University, or PGU, workshops, I will be helping to teach one on beer.
It's called "Beer: It's a 'Burgh Thing" and runs from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 2, at the Fort Pitt Museum at Point State Park. A staffer there will speak on the history of beer in Pittsburgh, and Lawrenceville's Roundabout Brewery will supply a tasting. Cost is $40.
To register for this or other courses, visit post-gazette.com/pgu or call 412-263-1302.
Meanwhile, Craft Beer School is back at The Cabaret at Theater Square, Downtown. At 6:15 and 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, learn with Bob McCafferty, owner of North Country Brewing in Butler County; includes presentation, beer tastings, light appetizers and door prizes (trustarts.org and 412-456-6666).
