I will look into T.R.U.B - could be a fun group. I know when I do 5k's I often bring my homebrew in a keg and share some with fellow runners.

It's easier just to homebrew. You can be up and running with $70 in equipment and brew great beer for about $8 a case.

I totally want to check out this place in Cleaveland. I'm a culinary student who's planning on opening up a gastropub so I wonder how many people are actually interesting in this sort of thing. It'd be an interesting business model to scope out.

I've been thinking about getting involved in something like this for a while now. What part of Pittsburgh do you live in? And would you be interested in getting together sometime to discuss?

[Edit: prob should've just sent this as a PM]

Hough's Bar & Restaurant, Greenfield
I heard they started a BYO, but don't see any sign of it on their website, nor did I see any sign of it at their actual bar when I was there a couple of weeks ago. Does anyone have any more info on this?

I'm in TRUB and its a great bunch of guys. I'm out in Greensburg so I don't get to every meeting but I do try to get to the big brews when we make a 100 gallon batch.

won't do that again?.

What a great idea! I'm going to check it out!

I made homemade beer once, from a kit. I bought a new green plastic garbage can, cleaned it thoroughly, and followed the directions. The beer wasn't very good, and it was green. Why it was green, I don't know?.

What? I'd love to see the price breakdowns on this.
Obviously I'm screwing myself somehow. I was doing extract brewing for a while, and was spending around $20-25/case. I'm moving into all-grain now, and expect the cost/case to be dropping as a result (though I'd be surprised if I only ended up only spending 1/3 of what I've been spending), but the equipment I bought for it was like $250. I'm sure I could've gone cheaper, but it seems like it would be tough to get even just a decent brew kettle for $70.
