This looks like a fun way to spend an afternoon and support the Union Project and East End Brewing too.

This workshop includes selecting a handmade stein design, funky or classic, then glazing it with high fire glazes. After we fire it for you, come back to crack open the kiln and test out your seasonal creation with a beer on us! We are partnering with East End Brewery for this event!

A very arious grill, originally uploaded by IheartPGH.

This grill is hand crafted out of a prototype nuclear waste storage container on an old boat trailer.

When Bridget and Charlie are not bbqing on their intergalactic grill they are avid beer brewers.… Read the rest
