While I am sitting here bemoaning the end of summer – I have noticed that many others are taking the arrival of fall in stride because they are excited about 1 thing – all things pumpkin.  Apparently – yinz can’t wait for the pumpkin flavore to return to your lattes, muffins and of course beer.

For all of the pumpkin beer loving readers – here is an advanced notice of super pumpkin beer night at the Harris Grill. From their latest newsletter

Tuesday October 16th marks our 3rd annual Smashing Pumpkins punkin’ beer tap takeover.  As many pumpkin beers as we can get our hands on, and maybe even a pumpkin shot or two.  Also a Bacon Night! What’s not to love?

If you are new to Pittsburgh, or just didn’t know about this yet – every Tuesday is Bacon Night at the Harris Grill

.  So Tuesday, October 16 – they are doubling down – pumpkin beer and bacon.

If you are not serious about bacon, if you are a vegetarian, if you are vegan or you don’t eat meat – then you should probably stop reading right here.  The rest of this post is about bacon, lots of bacon.

This Saturday, September 17 – is the 2011 Bacon Bash.  Pittsburgh is home to one of the most established bacon bloggers in all of the land of bacon bloggers – Mr. Baconpants – he is serious about bacon.  I was honored to have the opportunity to sample some burgers with Mr. Baconpants and Bacon Knight earlier this summer (thanks to the folks at Chevy/GM northeast for organizing the bloggers burger event). I know very little about bacon and Mr. Baconpants helped bring me up to speed on the bacon basics.

Mr. Baconpants will be teaming up with the weekly bacon night hosts – The Harris Grill for a festival of bacon known as the Bacon Bash.  [IheartPGH Fun Fact – We <3 the Harris Grill – one of our first posts about bacon night at the Harris Grill led to our first mention in the Post-Gazette back in 2005, that was then they blogs were called web logs].

We thought this might be of interest to Pittsburgh beer lovers.  Here is another great event from the folks at the Harris Grill – not only do they bring you bacon every Tuesday night – but they also host free beer tastings.

Founders Brewing Company Beer Tasting

Thursday, March 25 @ Harris Grill

7:00 — 9:00 PM

Think of this as a mini beer dinner, less formal than a plated dinner and more at your own pace. And it’s free! We’re pairing special, complementary appetizers with samples of their stellar beer lineup, plus there will be a special “mystery draft” on the board.

We’ll have representatives of Founders on-hand to meet and greet, and participants will receive discounts on Founders beers for the duration of their stay. No reservations, no charge. Did we mention ‘free’? It’s free.
