Let’s Get Grilling for Father’s Day

It’s time to celebrate the men who have made a positive impact on us by taking an active role in our lives. Give dad a break from his beloved grilling duties, and let chef Kevin Hermann’s grilling tips guide you through an impressive feast.

Tomahawk Steak Grilling Tips

Is it the beef? Is it the patty method? Is it the grill? How do they do it??? Here are a few simple steps that help at burger time, every time!

How to Grill Corn and Fresh Vegetables

No need to overcomplicate the process when it comes to farm stand corn and fresh veggies.

Food is set — but you can’t forget the booze! We recommended gifting Dad one (or more) of the following Pittsburgh beer and bourbon options.

Kingfly Blended Bourbon Whiskey

A warming bourbon with flavors of spice, oak, and sweet corn.

Sherry Cask Finished Rye Whiskey

This barrel-finished liquor from Wigle Whiskey features sweet berry notes with a spicy finish.

Peated Bourbon

Liberty Pole’s Peated Bourbon is like a campfire in a bottle: a palate of caramel, vanilla, and butterscotch flavors.

Cardshark Bourbon

For those who like a more traditional, rye-tasting liquor.

Rye Whiskey Copper Edition

Quantum Spirits recommends serving this spiced rye, featuring citrus, honeycomb, and caramel notes, on the rocks with a twist of orange.

Mindful Brewing

Located in Castle Shannon and Carnegie, Mindful Brewing makes a great spot for food and brews if firing up the grill for Father’s Day seems a bit too intimidating.

Leaning Cask Brewing

From their refreshing Strawberry Wiggle Butt with fresh basil and strawberry to the Imperial Ridgeback double IPA, this Eastern Pittsburgh brewery features a wide-ranging selection of beverages, perfect for the dad who craves variety.

Necromancer Brewing

For the sports-loving dad, grab a four-pack to-go of Necromancer’s Gold beer, a Pittsburgh Cream Ale, and their Black Pittsburgh Porter.

Inner Groove Brewing

Named after the hidden tracks, or “inner grooves” of vinyl records, this Verona-originated brewery is a center for hand-crafted brews and good tunes.
