Pittsburgh’s Fresh Fest Beer Fest Celebrates Black Brewers and Drinkers

From 9 to 11 August, the second annual Fresh Fest Beer Fest will honor black brewers and drinkers. Hosting 28 black-owned breweries, 45 collaborative beers, six musical acts (Nappy Roots included) and 20 food vendors, the fest—taking place at Nova Place in Pittsburgh—is set to celebrate diversity and incredible beer. Brooklyn Brewery’s Garrett Oliver and Uncle Nearest’s Fawn Weaver will be in attendance and the festival’s founder, Mike Potter of Black Brew Culture, will be popping into panels featuring numerous black brewery owners—Celeste Beatty of Harlem Brewing Company, Kevin Blodger of Union Craft Brewing and many more included.
