Full Pint Brewing Rolls Out ‘Pittsburgh Dad’-Inspired Beer
Finally, something to ease the pain of neurotically watching the Stillers.
Fans of Curt Wootton’s wildly popular Pittsburgh Dad character know that he normally cheers 3-2-1 ... Win! while watching any sort of sporting event. The hop mavens at Full Pint Brewing Co. bottled up that spirit, literally.
The “3-2-1 Win!” beer, a light and golden ale (or koölsch), is incredibly approachable, says head brewer and co-owner Jake Kristophel. It’s bright, fizzy and yellow — something Pittsburgh Dad would drink.
True to Pittsburgh Dad’s essence, the beer bottle’s label reads like a conversation between Dad and one of his kids: “Is it craft beer?” “No, if yinz want crafts, go down to the church fair with your gram!”
Bottom line: Find this brew, available on tap and in cases, at your favorite local watering hole or carry-out spot. You’ll need a pint or bottle for tomorrow’s preseason Steelers game.
#NailedIt: ‘Price Is Right’ auditions attract hundreds
Hundreds lined up to try out for the "Price Is Right" at Meadows Racetrack and Casino yesterday, and you'd expect things to get a little crazy. But how crazy?
One guy just screamed into the camera for his 30-second audition. "I nailed it," he said when he was done. One woman just described herself as a "redneck country girl," and another man brought a stuffed animal.
Few said they were good at guessing prices, the premise of the game.
