Stanton Hops Celebration!

image4The Stanton Heights Neighborhood Association Invites you to celebrate with us, contribute to your community, and taste our Stanton Hops!

On Sunday September 18th from 2:00 – 7:00 pm, Roundabout Brewery (4901 Butler Street) will be releasing a limited edition of a beer that has been “wet hopped” using the hop flowers grown at our Stanton Heights rain garden.
The rain garden was initially funded through a “Love Your Block” grant program – a partnership between the City of Pittsburgh and People’s Gas to revitalize Pittsburgh- block by block. We selected the block at the intersection of Stanton & McCandless to weed, plant a rain garden, paint the stair railing, and grow hops to cover the deteriorating retaining wall. Following our work this spring, we have received two additional awards to continue work on the site!
A portion of sales from this keg will go back to our neighborhood to cover some of our expenses and fund future projects like this. We hope that this will be the first of many harvest seasons that will allow us to share in the fruits of our labor with everyone!
Please join us for what promises to be an excellent party – in addition to the beverages, there will be food and music!  There is no admission cost and friends and family are welcome.  See you on September 18th!
