PCBN Connect is now live and available for Apple and Android smartphones and tablets. This app will serve as your connection to the Pittsburgh craft beer scene. You can use it to discover events happening at various locales across the city, as well as get deals from your favorite hotspots, connect to PCBN’s Blog, social media networks, and podcast, and much more. The mission is to emphasize the craft beer renaissance we are currently a part of and to shine the spotlight on all the great places featuring craft beer in Pittsburgh 24/7/365.
I am pleased to present Caliente Pizza & Draft House as our PCBN Connect Sponsor for the month of March. The Caliente name has become synonymous with delectable pizza and incredible craft beer selection. Their pizza has won awards, most recently “Best Pizza Bloomfield,” and their incredible dedication to giving you some of the best craft beer options in town has firmly put them on the map. Caliente now has two locations, the original in Bloomfield and the newest in Hampton Township.
It was roughly one year ago that I discovered Caliente via word-of-mouth and Twitter. And although I hadn’t ventured through their doors personally, I received enough positive feedback from friends and social media connections to know I had to check them out immediately. It wasn’t more than a couple weeks later that I made my first visit to Caliente and immediately saw what all the hype was about. I instantly fell in love with this place and knew I was in the middle of something special.
When it comes to craft beer, a diverse selection is key. Caliente has just that and then some. Both on tap and in their coolers, they carry rare beers you simply don’t come across in many other places in Pittsburgh. Owners Nick and Angie Bogacz have made some incredible connections in the beer world that has led to several unique offerings for you and I to enjoy.
And, as I mentioned before, the pizza is out of this world. The combination of solid craft beer and a delicious slice of pie quite possibly ranks towards the top of life’s greatest pleasures. When Nick first got started, his mission was to make great pizza. Mission accomplished. In addition to the accolades of “Best Pizza Bloomfield,” Caliente’s pizza also ranked 3rd among all pizza establishments in Pittsburgh…a list spanning over 2,000 locations!
One of the biggest draws to Caliente are the events held every week. It’s not uncommon to see these guys tap a rare beer that’s nearly impossible to find elsewhere in the city…almost weekly! But if the unique stash is being saved for a later date, you can guarantee you’ll find something amongst their 24 taps and extensive beer coolers that will bring a smile to your face.
Don’t feel like leaving the house? That’s cool, Caliente has you covered. Check this out…
