How it all Started...


 

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