Morgantown Brewing Company (MBC)

Downtown Morgantown

RSVP

MBC has new ownership and many new beers and lots of good food. Plus, on Tuesdays they have a buy-one-get-one-free for their drafts.

We may try to do a 3 or 5 minute fun “PowerPointless” lightning talk on something cool that you do or know about. Consider doing one! Also, this night coincides with the first day of the GIS Foundations Course held down the road at the WV GIS Tech Center. It would be good to meet and encourage some of our Newbees (even if you may be a Newbee).

Please let me know if you are interested or coming via our Facebook event page so we can have a sense of numbers of folks who will or may be at the pub.

Invite a colleague. Come on down!
