Mindful Brewing Co. - Saturday, Sept 24 - Castle Shannon, PA

Pittsburgh, PA, - With the world-wide impact of the conflict in Ukraine, it is easy to forget the about the individuals who’s daily lives have been completely overturned.

Youth hockey players are among those whose lives have been changed and who get lost in the chaos and devastation … most likely forever.

The Esmark Stars AAA Hockey Program has built a proud tradition of providing International players, including Eastern European players, with the experience and immersion into the American culture and way-of-life ... so that they can share those experiences and ideals in their native countries… all while providing an opportunity to play hockey against the highest levels of competition.

This year the significance of that effort has even greater meaning, as these players may not have even had the opportunity to play in their own countries.

Topped with the hardship that these Eastern European families are currently experiencing, these players are in need of assistance with living and travel expenses while here in the United States. And as most know, elite level travel hockey “is not inexpensive."

With that in mind, the Mindful Brewing Company has stepped up to the plate and is hosting what promises to be a fun evening for a most beneficial cause.

This upcoming Saturday, Sept 25, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., Mindful Brewing will be hosting an evening of Music with rising Pittsburgh Music Star Trinity Wiseman at their Castle Shannon location, 3759 Library Road in Castle Shannon.

Born in Pittsburgh and living in Nashville, Trinity has been wowing audiences since she was 11 years old. Her uniquely beautiful voice and guitar skills shine through as she covers songs across the last seven decades. Trinity’s original tunes draw from influences like Maggie Rogers, Phoebe Bridgers and Kacey Musgraves. Trinity has been the receipient of various Pittsburgh awards, including: the WYEP Singer/Songwriter of the Year, William’s Sing Off for First Night and the Pittsburgh Acoustic Challenge.

The evening will also include a "Craft Beer Launch" of Mindful Brewing Company's newest wet hopped lager.
