Caliente Pizza & Draft House Expands Into Aspinwall
When I launched Breaking Brews back in February 2014, one of the first articles that put this site on the map was a list of nine bars in Pittsburgh I felt were making exceptional strides with their tap rotations, food programs, ambiance, and more. One of those nine locales was Caliente Pizza & Draft House and, at that point, it was all based on feedback and buzz I had received from friends and online connections. I didn’t venture inside their spot in Bloomfield personally until a few weeks after that article went viral and, I was happy to discover, the hype was real. Great beer selection combined with some of the best pizza I had ever sunk my teeth into. Their spot on that initial list was well-deserved.
Fast-forward almost four years and, as Breaking Brews is about to turn four years old, Caliente is on the brink of opening their fourth location in Aspinwall. With three successful establishments operating in Hampton Township, Mount Lebanon, and the aforementioned Bloomfield, Caliente’s decorated and internationally-recognized pizza and stellar, well-curated lineup of craft beer will be setting up shop in a brand new neighborhood – continuing to build their empire and bring high-quality pizza, wings, and beer options to a fresh, thirsty consumer base.
“We are humbled and honored to bring our ever-growing brand of international championship pizza and world class beer to Aspinwall and Fox Chapel,” said Nick Bogacz, Founder and Owner of Caliente Pizza & Draft House.
Caliente is known for featuring exceptional beer on a consistent basis. Taps at all their locations can be found pouring beers hard-to-find in other parts of town. In addition, their pizza has received worldwide recognition at the 2016 and 2017 International Pizza Expo, bringing home the accolades of #1 Pan Pizza in the World in 2016. More recently this past December, they were named in Pizza Today’s Top 100 Independent Pizzerias.
They focus on consistency across all their locations and have established one of the strongest pizza brands in the Pittsburgh region. Regardless of which establishment you visit, you’re guaranteed to enjoy the same top-shelf pizza and diverse beer selection.
Their newest destination is located at 225 Commercial Avenue, Aspinwall PA, 15215. They plan to be open within the next week, so stay close to Breaking Brews and Caliente’s Facebook and Twitter pages for breaking developments.
Below are some photos from the ‘Bar Rescue-esque’ renovation that’s taken place over the last couple weeks at the soon-to-open Caliente Aspinwall. Enjoy!
