WVSAE Members – Our Membership Drive, hosted by Holiday Inn and Suites Charleston West on June 12, was an opportunity to learn about all the growing Craft Brewing Industry in West Virginia. Our guest speaker was Sam Moazy, Master Brewer of Big Timber Brewing in Elkins. Sam explained how recent changes in laws in the past 10 years have allowed craft brewing to explode in West Virginia, from four breweries to 37! You DONT have to go to Europe to get great tasting, exciting beer: it’s HERE in West Virginia. Aside from Big Timber IPAs and Stout beers, we had Devil Anse from Greenbrier Valley Brewing and Stumptown Ale from the Stumptown Brewing in Davis, WV. You MISSED…a great time.

Thanks again to Holiday Inn and Suites Charleston West, who, aside from their world-class hospitality, served-up fantastic culinary delights that made the craft beers that much better.

See you NEXT time on August 2 and 3 at Stonewall Resort. You DONT wanna miss that event!
