Steelers Announce that Mac & Cheese will Replace Fries on Primanti Brothers Sandwiches at Heinz Field

With the merger of Heinz and Kraft comes a little change to a Pittsburgh favorite.  Starting in the fall, all Primanti Brother’s Sandwiches sold at Heinz Field will be topped with Kraft Mac & Cheese instead of the traditional french fries.

Say hello to the  Pri-Mac-ti Brothers Sandwich… bread, meat, cheese coleslaw and mac & cheese make up the new sandwich that will be server at all Steelers home games this fall.

Pri-Mac-Ti Brother Sandwich

Kraft Mac & Cheese will replace french fries on the Primanti Brothers sandwiches at Heinz Field


While fans have been assured that the stadium will continue to be named Heinz Field, some subtle changes will be made to the menu this fall that reflect the recently announced merger of Heinz and Kraft foods.  “We feel that the Pri-Mac-ti Brothers sandwich is a great way to begin to combine Kraft foods with the Pittsburgh market,” said a Heinz Field spokesperson.

The new Pri-Mac-ti Sandwich has its own hashtag – #macNat 

Heinz field is asking fans to share their thoughts on the new sandwhich with the #macNat.

What do you think about the new Pri-Mac-Ti sandwich?

Pittsburgh sports fans (and food lovers)? How do you feel about the new food merger? Would you try one of these sandwiches? What other ways would you combine Kraft foods with Pittsburgh favorites? How about a mac & cheese pierogi? (We hope that one won’t replace Jalapeño Hannah in the pierogi race at PNC park.)

Watch the Steeler Game in the Shadow of a Steel Mill

Brew Gentleman Braddock Steeler GameI often try to think of the MOST Pittsburgh place one can watch the Steeler game, that doesn’t involved going to the game.  Well I don’t think it gets more Pittsburgh than this – now you can watch the game next to a steel mill.

The Brew Gentleman is a new brewery that opened this year in Braddock, just down the road from the Edgar Thomson Steelworks, which is a steel mill that is still that opened in 1872 and is still in operation today.

The brewery was founded by two wonderful fellows who I had the good fortune of meeting at this foodie, networking event a few years back.

Matt and Asa came to Pittsburgh to attend Carnegie Mellon and have stayed in town to open a brewery.  I just opened their latest email blast and The Brew Gentleman will be showing the Steeler game this Sunday, September 28, 2014 – the game is at 1pm and they will open at noon.

The Brew Gentleman’s brewery is a beautiful space with a spacious tasting room.  Head down for the Steeler game or stop by for a beer during their regular hours – Wednesday-Saturday 4-10pm.

Food will be available from Caroline’s Chili – which is a new food vendor in town and new to twitter (be sure to follow @CarolinesChili).
