Help East End Get Pittsburgh Beer in the White House for the Super Bowl
Hey There GOOD BEER Fans, this is by no means the full-blown GOOD BEER News, but there’s something important in the works here, and I think you should know about it:
It seems that during a recent visit to Wisconsin, The White House placed a beer order from fellow Craft Brewer, Hinterland Brewing Company in Wisconsin, so that they could have some Green Bay beer on hand for the Superbowl. Simple enough, but maybe you can already see that this act by itself, is not exactly a “beer-partisan” move. Since Friday of last week, we’re working to help correct that. And here’s where YOU come in…
HELP US GET SOME PITTSBURGH BEER TO THE WHITE HOUSE!
What can you do? Well, if you’re a FaceBook user you can climb on board the movement by going to http://www.facebook.com/EastEndtoDC and hitting the LIKE button. (We’re approaching the 1,000 Fan mark already!) Then, share this with your circle of friends on Facebook, and help us grow the presence there! And while you’re on that Facebook page, be sure to check out the links to some of the local press we’ve gotten, and give a listen to my KDKA Radio interview from Friday of last week. That’s all on the Facebook Page.
If you’re a Twitter user, you can help spread the word there by Tweeting with the hashtag #EastEndtoDC. Or follow our progress on our Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/EastEndBrewing. That’s where this whole thing got started late last week, and where most of the updates are posted.
If neither of these websites are your thing and you “don’t do social networking”, don’t worry, no problem. You can still help. Share this with your circle of friends, and send it along to your favorite news reporter for your favorite press outlet. Any help getting the word out is still a huge help!
My hope is that someone knows somebody who thinks this story is worthy of some National press, which should get the RIGHT people’s attention…and hopefully later this week, I’ll be honored to load up some Black N Gold Beer to head out on the most important delivery run of this brewery’s life. Thanks for all of your help and support with making this happen for us, and for Pittsburgh!

It is such a shame that East End Brewing would fake the pictures of President Obama. The photos are taken at our brew pub, also in PA, at the Bethlehem Brew Works – the other Steel town.

What a shame.

Good Cause and all, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the White House already has plenty of PA beers and figures that’s good enough. Many of them are available in our area.
