Caliente Pizza & Draft House (Bloomfield)

Caliente Pizza and Draft House quietly entered the beer and dining scene in the Spring of 2013 and has quickly become one of the best craft beer destinations in the city. Don't be surprised, though, if you haven't heard of it. They don't need to do much advertising to draw a great crowd any given day of the week. So it was a very wise decision when they opened up a second bar in the basement just a couple months ago. For our visit, we've reserved the entire downstairs bar for our group so we'll have lots of space all to ourselves.

Oh, and make sure you come hungry so you can order one of their amazing pizzas. Seriously. I know pizza and theirs is among the best in town. Buffalo Chicken and Spinach & Feta gourmet pies are my two favorites!

Some details: Current Draft List | Breaking Brews Spotlight | Yelp

Craft Drafts are 1/2 off from 4:30-6:30 on weekdays, so you may want to show up a little early for your first pint at the main bar.


**UPDATE: This meetup is now capped at 40 people so we don't go over the capacity of the downstairs bar.**

    I hope everyone who attended last night had a good time! I want to apologize for the overcrowding downstairs. Caliente was expecting a different group of 20 people, who they were setting up upstairs. When that group arrived, they said they would be expecting about 30 more people throughout the evening, which caused them to spill downstairs. So, even though Caliente tried very hard to reserve most of the downstairs bar for us like I had asked, that other group kind of took it over on their own. Again, I'm sorry that the environment wasn't more conducive to the whole "meeting new people" thing that our members usually enjoy.

    This Beer Meetup should be a fantastic event -- but for those on the waiting list that might be looking for something else to do on Wednesday, there is another event at called 'Wine, Jazz, and Soul' CJ's (2911 Penn Avenue, about a mile from Bloomfield) which is posted on other Meeups such as http://www.meetup.com/Burgh-Adults/events/189142322/ and there will also be beer but certainly not as good of a selection as Caliente.

    Also, Caliente gourmet pizza will be featured at this Sunday's 'Dance Lesson, Wine Session ... and Pizza Too!' which is BYOwine at the Pittsburgh Dance Center in Bloomfield which also includes various Meetups such as http://www.meetup.com/Burgh-Adults/events/190425362/
