History of The Taming of the Brew

How it all began

The Taming of the Brew was the melding of a love of good beer and community philanthropy.

Begun by Michelle and Dave Kessler in 2002, the event was at the forefront of a burgeoning micro-brew industry. With a few good friends, they conceived of the event, contacted regional microbreweries and restaurants, and put on a party! They designated Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble as the non-profit recipient of the proceeds of the event.

In 2008, they handed the reins over to a new committee and to BTE. With great community support for the beloved event, it has grown and continued!

The Committee

Cynthia Schultz, Mike Jones, Monica Johnson, Frances Smith, Elizabeth Dowd, Daniel Roth, Jon White-Spunner, Laura Baker, and Andrea Bishop
