I just scheduled another meetup. This time, we're doing something a little different: a deli.What
: Carson Street DeliWhen
: Tuesday, November 16,[masked]:00 PMhttp://www.meetup.com/pittsburgh-beer/calendar/15320561/
I don't know how many of you have noticed, but there's a new beer destination in the South Side (yes, another one). In contrast to the long list of bars, this one is actually a deli--one with 200+ different bottle options.
details: Pittsburgh Magazine / Urbanspoon
Sometime last year, Pittsburgh Magazine reported
that the place had been purchased by Mike Murphy, a seasoned home-brewer and craft beer enthusiast. That sparked my interest. I've made my way out a couple of times since and have very quickly become a fan. For the most part, the deli aspect of CSD has stayed the same: quality sandwiches and free WiFi. The biggest change is really the beer, which CSD pulls off quite nicely. In addition to the bottles, they offer 4 (good) draft options, which really isn't all that bad for a deli.
The deli offers beer tastings ever week (Wednesday 7-9pm), but they're going to do a special tasting for the beer meetup on Tuesday, 12/14. Depending on how many people sign up, they might even close off the whole place for all but our event. We'll have to see what happens.
