Garrett Oliver discussing one of the samples (photo courtesy of Jim Witmer)Oliver ran through his brewing background, relating how his time in London left him craving real beer once he was back in the states. So, in 1989, he started brewing for the Manhattan Brewing Company. A few years later, he jumped over to Brooklyn Brewery, where he is now the brewmaster and VP.

NOV. 10 WINE TASTING AT THERAPY CAFE TO BENEFIT YOUNG WRITERS AT STIVERS FOR THE ARTS
Dayton, Ohio − The seedling Foundation, a nonprofit organization established to benefit Stivers School for the Arts, will sponsor a wine tasting from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 10, at Therapy Cafe, 452 E. Third St. in downtown Dayton.
Tickets are $20 at the door and in advance and include four tastes of wine, hors d’oeuvres and music. In addition, 50 percent of the ticket cost is tax-deductible. Advance tickets are available at Therapy Cafe or by contacting Stivers’ creative writing department director Kristen Wicker at 937-542-7425 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
All proceeds benefit Stivers School for the Arts’ creative writing department and will be used for such expenses as classroom technology, publishing costs of the school’s newspaper, workshop fees for visiting writers and field trip transportation.
“This event is a wonderful opportunity for people to support Stivers young writers while enjoying a relaxed evening and terrific wine and food,” Wicker said. “Our students really appreciate the variety of writing experiences the department is able to offer, which are funded in part through events such as this one.”
More than 200 seventh- through twelfth-grade students are enrolled in Stivers’ creative writing department. In addition to writing such genres as fiction, nonfiction and poetry, students also learn such skills as lyric writing and book making. Currently, several students are participating in National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, in which they’re writing at least 1,800 words a day to complete a novel by the end of November. Creative writing students also write and publish Stivers’ newspaper, Tiger Times; national literary magazine, Our Time is Now; and yearbook.
