‘Brewing Up a Cure’ Benefits Cystic Fibrosis

The Members of The Three Rivers Underground Brewers (TRUB) will be hosting their Fifth Annual “Brewing Up A Cure” benefitting Cystic Fibrosis on Saturday, October 8, 2011 at the Pittsburgh Athletic Association (PAA) in Oakland from 7:00-10:00PM.

The night will be filled with drinks, food and entertainment, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Musical entertainment by Highway 13 and DJ John Doran
  • Appetizers and desserts by local area restaurants such as Subway, Jimmy Johns, Bob Evans, Sweethouse Bake Shop, Angelo’s Pizza Bloomfield, Monroeville Italian Club, Piper’s Pub, Beer Nutz and Bella Frutteto and plus many more
  • More than 50 samplings of craft beer available for tasting 

In addition to the night’s festivities, a special VIP session will be held in advance of the main event, from 6:00-7:00PM. The VIP session will feature special home-brewed beers and exclusive foods only offered during this hour.

Seven-year-old Sadie Terrick, daughter to TRUB member Shane Terrick, was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of 8 days old. As a result, this event has evolved into an annual event in an effort to raise funds and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis as the members share their love of craft beers and raise money for research.

Brewing Up A Cure has raised over $88,000 in the past four years, and has gained popularity as a marquee event in the City of Pittsburgh. The bar has been raised, and TRUB in partnership with Brewing Up A Cure has high hopes to raise a total of $100,000 at the end of this year’s event.

Tickets for the event are $35, with VIP tickets available for $45. For more information on TRUB, Brewing Up A Cure, or to buy tickets online, please visit the events website at:
