The long-awaited Pittsburgh episode of Anthony Bourdain's "Parts Unknown" airs at 9 p.m. In it, Bourdain traverses the city and even makes it out to Braddock, where he dines with John and Gisele Fetterman at the much-touted Superior Motors restaurant. We spoke with Fetterman about what his experience on the show was like, what they ate and what they talked about. (Spoiler Alert: President Trump may have come up.) We also talked to Fetterman about his Superior Motors-based hopes for Braddock. And, if you're feeling up to it, we compiled this epic drinking game which we can all play at home while watching tonight's episode. Bottoms up.
Look for something different from this soon-to-open Spring Hill brewery. While most craft breweries focus on hoppy IPAs and boozy stouts, Spring Hill Brewing leans on light and fruity Belgian-style beers. Plus, while most craft beer is significantly stronger than your standard macro-brewed lager, its brewer has spent years perfecting home brews that are distinctly low in alcohol, like a session beer. In this week's Four One Brew column, Chris Togneri explores how a record store owner and the former front man of Pittsburgh punk band Slices came together to create fruity beers with intentionally low alcohol levels.
