I got to attend the annual Pennsylvania Malt Beverage Distributor's Association's meeting in Pittsburgh over the past weekend. Besides having training in alcohol laws and underage drinking prevention, they also have some fun things. I attended the Beer School seminar, which was to teach beer sellers how beer was made. The idea being, if you know how it is made, then you can better inform your customers. The class was run by a couple of home brewers and there were a couple of micro brewer's brewmasters there.
After, the seminar, there were numerous booths set-up with samples from quite a few breweries. Of course, the major breweries were there, but the Pennsylvania Room was the best. I got to sample beers from the following Pennsylvania mircobreweries:
The best thing about the microbreweries is that they usually post on their websites what ingredients are in each beer. This allows us homebrewers a chance to replicate the many fine beers that are being made. Check out some of the sites.
