Pittsburgh has become a brewery town and it’s pretty hard to go wrong picking one. But Cinderlands Warehouse in the Strip District has quickly gone to the top of our list. Housed in what was once an all-you-can-eat spaghetti place popular with elementary school field trips, this two-story brewery/restaurant has games, a roof deck, and a large menu. It’s a bit all over the place - pierogies next to pimento cheese next to beer-can chicken - but full of actually good food that we’d come here for even if they didn’t serve fantastic craft beers.
