Best Lookin’ Tacos go to Strange Roots Experimental Ales

Best Lookin’ Tacos go to Strange Roots Experimental Ales

I recently took a trip to Millvale, one of my favorite Pittsburgh neighborhoods, for Taco Tuesday. With a new goal to downsize my apartment and save money on rent, Millvale and my current location of Mount Washington were the top picks on my list. Millvale is booming with breweries and restaurants, and a Baby Loves Tacos will be appearing there soon. And with the bike trail nearby, Millvale is my ultimate hobby oasis. During the TacoMania events, I tried some…

You haven’t blogged about PGH Taco Truck yet?

You haven’t blogged about PGH Taco Truck yet?

Yes. That was the question everyone was asking as I sat in the Leaning Cask Brewery with my pen, notebook, and a basket of tacos from PGH Taco Truck. Earlier in the day, I was over at Steve’s house in Springdale and Steve said “Oh, we missed PGH Taco Truck at Inner Groove yesterday.” I sadly looked to the floor. The first time I had tacos from PGH Taco Truck was at the Pittsburgh Taco festival two years ago and…

Independence Day Tacos at Mindful Brewing.

Independence Day Tacos at Mindful Brewing.

This year, I wanted to spend the Fourth of July up in Mount Washington. My neighbors and I have some prime real estate up there for the fireworks. Before I would settle up in the Mount for the afternoon, Steve and I took a quick lunch trip to Mindful Brewing. We knew we could not be out very long if we wanted to have a parking spot back in Mount Washington for the firework celebration. Good thing the Fourth of…

Voodoo tacos cast a spell on me.

Voodoo tacos cast a spell on me.

A few weeks ago, I had the unusual treat of a free Thursday afternoon so I took advantage of this by biking with my friend, Sean.  Typically, my Thursday nights are reserved for my Ultimate Frisbee league, but this week the league was on a temporary on hold between seasons.  With only one Thursday evening to spare before summer Frisbee commenced, Sean and I decided to make our way to Voodoo Brewery by bicycle. I introduced Sean to a wonderful…

More Pittsburgh Brewery Tacos at Draai Laag Brewing

Wild Beers by Design, What About Tacos? Over the past few months, Nate and I have made frequent visits to Draai Laag Brewing located at 501 East Ohio Street in Millvale, PA.  This brewery has a pub-style taproom that offers a rotating selection of sour or farmhouse ale beers. These beers may start as regular Belgian beers, but in French and Belgian styles they’re introduced to native and/or unique floras (aka yeasts) that greatly change the beers. In ‘normal’ brewing…

Big Bacon Tacos – Enjoying Pittsburgh Pork Belly Tacos at Insurrection AleWorks

Big Bacon Tacos – Enjoying Pittsburgh Pork Belly Tacos at Insurrection AleWorks

Work, Nap, Run, Taco Time On a Friday night after work, a nap and a mile run I built up an appetite for tacos. I knew Nate and I would be getting tacos for dinner, but it was a last minute decision to go to Insurrection AleWorks.  We had received word from a friend that they were having tacos on special this weekend.  Since they do not have tacos on their everyday menu (once every 2-3 weeks tacos will be…

Hitchhiking for Tacos in Pittsburgh

Hitchhiking for Tacos in Pittsburgh

I have now been to Hitchhiker Brewing Company more than most of my friends that live in the South Hills, and I do not even live close to there. I love this place! I discovered my favorite beer of all time here, Yeoman, a fresh hopped IPA brewed right here by Hitchhiker.  The fresh hops put into this American Pale Ale came from a hop farm near Slippery Rock and it really knocked my socks off! Hitchhiker Brewing is where I also…
