Blue Dust Pumpkin Fest 3
Blue Dust, the Homestead bar known for its extensive beer selection, will host its third annual Pumpkin Fest on Saturday, October 11 from 2 to 10 p.m. underneath the Homestead Grays Bridge between 6th and 7th Avenues. Don’t worry, it’s not half as shady as it sounds.
The event will feature 20 different pumpkin beers available on draft, ranging from local offerings from East End and Church Brew Works to perennial favorites Southern Tier and Dogfish Head, all available at $6 apiece. For another $5, you’ll also be able to purchase a small pumpkin from which to drink each beer.
Four Seasons wins at GABF
The Great American Beef Festival took place last week, and the only western Pennsylvania brewery to medal was Latrobe’s Four Seasons, which won a silver medal in the oatmeal stout category for its Dark Side of the Pint. Eat/Drink congratulates Christian Simmons and the guys at Four Seasons while simultaneously reminding you that the reason Pittsburgh breweries didn’t dominate at GABF is because our brewers are too busy making awesome beer to care about awards. It’s a wonder Simmons and his crew even found the time to enter.
Kohinoor closed after fire
Kohinoor, the Indian-Pakistani restaurant in Monroeville, is closed after suffering a fire on Sunday. Just two weeks ago, owner and chef Tamil Selvan brought his tandoor to Bar Marco for one of the most wildly popular No Menu Mondays in the series’ history.
It is unclear when or if Kohinoor will reopen. In the meantime, a limited menu of his food is available at the S.V. Temple canteen, open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
