Craft Beer Showdown Podcast Session 23 – ShuBrew

Craft beer is all about small, local breweries producing some amazing beer. With a sense of inclusion surrounding just about every craft brewer, it’s this sense of belonging that brings everyone together for Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week.

With this idea in mind, I went out to ShuBrew in Zelienople, PA to talk to co-owner Zach Shumaker about craft beer, how he got ShuBrew off the ground, and what keeps it going.

Small batches, great beer, and an awesome brewpub, ShuBrew is what craft beer is all about. Check out Session 23 of the Craft Beer Showdown Podcast to hear my interview with Zach and learn all about ShuBrew.

Day 4 of Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week is in the books, and a better Monday couldn’t have been had. From the release of Hitchhiker Brewing’s first beer to the Pens winning their series, it was a great day in Pittsburgh.

Check out my post on my experiences in day 4 of Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week 2014 and see what a Hitchhiker, The Penguins, Four Seasons, and a local tap takeover all have in common. (Hint, it’s craft beer)

We’re just about halfway through the week and things are starting to get really interesting, so check out my post and let me know in the comments how your Day 4 went.

Saturday was not a big day for me sadly, as I had my last long run before the marathon on Sunday the 4th and of course the I had to watch the Penguins win!

Check out my review of Days 2 and 3 of Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week 2014. How was your Saturday and Sunday? Tell me your favorite events you hit over the weekend in the comments below.
