Come mix and mingle with GBA members and celebrate the long summer days at The Hotel Monaco. Help yourself to a spread of drinks and hors d’oeuvres, listen to stellar music, and take in the view of Downtown from the roof of The Hotel Monaco, all in the company of other GBA members. Eager to see more of the hotel? Behind-the-scenes tours will be available for those who want to see Pittsburgh’s newest boutique hotel, which retrofitted the 1903 James Reed building with a vibrant, modern interior. Throughout the evening, a select number of our Emerging Professionals will be recognized for their achievements in the field, and you’ll get the chance to speak with them in person about their innovative work in the built environment. This is one summer party you don’t want to miss.

Members Only: Behind the Scenes at the East End Brewing Co.

Join GBA for a grains-to-glass tour of the East End Brewing Company in Pittsburgh’s Larimer neighborhood!

Register Now



Last year, the East End Brewing Company celebrated ten years of distributing its local brews to bars and restaurants in Western PA. Now you get the chance to witness the carefully honed brewing process up close and personal, from start to finish. Earn some GBCI CEUs while your at it, and see for yourself how the East End Brewing Company runs a nearly zero-waste operation, saves energy by capturing heat from the exothermic fermentation process, and reduces water use by reclaiming hot and cold water used in the brewing process. Join your fellow GBA members on a guided tour of the facilities and hear the history of a small company that proudly calls Pittsburgh home. With a stellar lineup of new beers coming out in 2015, you may want to come thirsty!


  1. Understand how cooling tanks reclaim water used in the brewing process.
  2. Explain how a refrigeration system uses heat from the exothermic fermentation process to heat the production area.
  3. Understand how a recently overhauled electric system saves energy through three phase power.
  4. Explain how a diligent recycling and reuse policy for inbound packaging materials reduces landfill waste.
