March 7 – Craft Beer Movie and Sampling with Spoonwood Brewing Company

Help us celebrate Pittsburgh’s vibrant craft brew scene with a movie and beer sampling with some of our local partners.

Current Venture Outdoors Members are invited to attend a free screening of the craft beer film Blood, Sweat & Beer on Tuesday, March 7 at The Hollywood Theater in Dormont.

Blood, Sweat & Beer is a feature documentary about the explosive growth of the craft beer industry and the dramatic journeys of two start-up breweries, including Braddock’s Brew Gentlemen. The documentary is open to all ages and will begin at 7:30pm. Each membership household attending will also receive vouchers for free pocorn or soda.

Members 21 and over are also invited to attend a Members Only pre-show beer sampling with Spoonwood Brewing Company from 6 – 7pm. (Please note: space is limited for the beer sampling due to available lobby space. Tickets for the movie only will still be available once the sampling/movie tickets fill up.)
