The North Side of Pittsburgh is slowly becoming one of my favorite haunts when it comes to beer crawls. First there’s Allegheny City Brewing, with their adorable outdoor tables and variety of choices. 412 Brewing, now under new ownership, is kicking out some amazing classic brews that go down oh-so-easy. Then, you’ve got the new kid on the block, Four Points Brewing, which is bringing it with their killer IPAs and dangerously tasty fruited sours. And now, an old favorite is finally reopening their doors!
That’s right, friends! War Streets Brewery, located in Bier’s Pub on the North Side, is opening their doors to thirsty patrons again starting Thursday, June 3rd. This area of the ‘Burgh is officially locked and loaded when it comes to tasty brews.
One of the coolest things about the War Streets Brewery and Bier’s Pub combo is the art inside. They have the coolest, yinzer-centric art that will make you feel like you’re right in the middle of all things PGH. And then there’s the food! Oh man, the menu looks absolutely amazing. Packed with elevated pub food, you can chow down on a PGH Dog (sauerkraut, raw onions and truffle mustard) or My Morning Burger (loaded with applewood smoked bacon, home fries and of course, a dippy egg). They’ve got a brunch menu for weekends that is stacked with the classics. You can’t go wrong!
And then there’s the brews. War Streets creates beers that celebrate the streets nearby and a various amount of styles. Tuck into a Resaca Pl. Red Ale, a 5.7% beer that is smooth, dark, and clean. I love reds, so I hope this one is on tap upon their return!
I love a good pale as well, and Palo Alto St Pale Ale, a 6.5%er that is equally hoppy and light. Hopped with Eukanot, Cascade, Amarillo and Citra hops, expect lovely tropical flavors and aromas perfect for summer!
I can’t wait to see what War Streets has on tap and available for their opening day! Head down to the North Side ASAP next week and be sure to grab a pint (and maybe a meal, too!) at War Streets!
