Pickle beer? What will they think of next?

Primanti Bros. Restaurant and Bar has partnered with East End Brewing to create the city’s first pickle-flavored craft beer.

“Almost Famous” Pickle Beer is being unveiled Thursday morning at the Primanti Bros. location in Market Square.

The pickle beer is making its debut just in time for Picklesburgh, the Steel City’s free annual festival celebrating all things pickled. It’s happening this weekend along the Roberto Clemente Bridge to the riverside lanes of Fort Duquesne Boulevard between Stanwix and Seventh streets.

The beer is available at selected Primanti Bros. locations in the Pittsburgh area and at East End Brewing in Larimer, while supplies last.

At this point, it’s difficult to say exactly what the beer tastes like but it’s been described as “dillicious.”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
