Support “Brewing a Community”

The Brewing a Community documentary will focus on the ever-expanding craft brewing industry in Pennsylvania and its positive effects on local community, economic development and social change. We will explore the link between the introduction of a craft brewery to a community and its impact on the people and businesses of that community.

We will be producing a documentary to air as a pledge program on WPSU as well as other Pennsylvania PBS stations.

Contact Jessica today at BrewWPSU@psu.edu to support the project.
