GrowlerFest at the Brew House Association Beer growlers, jugs, and other containers used for storing or serving beer.
GrowlerFest connects artists to the craft beer movement by showcasing the ties between local food, craft beer, and ceramics. It’s goal is to create a “cross current” link between the craft brewery movement and the vitality of handmade pottery.

GrowlerFest connects artists to the craft beer movement by showcasing the ties between local food, craft beer, and ceramics. It’s goal is to create a “cross current” link between the craft brewery movement and the vitality of handmade pottery. Through the intersection of collaboration and individual aesthetic, we hope to spark investment in handmade objects among a group of people who share a common interest. The enjoyment of food and drink can be greatly enriched by the experience of using the beautiful work artists so thoughtfully produce.
The exhibition will be comprised of two components, one being juried growlers from artists who answer an open call for entry, and another being growlers made by an invited list of artists. We will pair these two components in order to create a multi-faceted exhibition which fosters a particular aesthetic while sparking interest in the growler as a form. Events will feature beer tastings and local food sampling and will be free and open to the public during the NCECA Conference in Pittsburgh, PA March 13-17, 2018. The public is invited to an exhibition and social gatherings centering on the beer growler.
1. Must be a growler or vessel pertaining to beer
GrowlerFest is partnering with the Brew House Association (BHA), which provides a wide range collaborative spaces, programs, and people in order to encourage the pursuit of artistic excellence. The BHA has emerged as a place where code writers mix with sculptors, artists evolve into entrepreneurs, and citizens from Pittsburgh’s South Side, Hilltop, and Mon Valley come to be creative. A former brewery located near Pittsburgh’s cultural district, it presents the perfect location for an exhibition centering on its historical purpose and contemporary identity.
