PITTSBURGH (Oct. 4, 2021) — For the past nine years, Caliente Pizza & Draft House has prided itself on being among the best spots to find hard-to-source craft beers in the Pittsburgh region. Next on tap? A brew that’s decidedly close to home.
Hazy Dough Dazy (5.3% abv), Caliente’s first self-brewed beer, will be on tap October 15 at all five current locations, and beer aficionados will find it at the regional restaurant’s two new locations when they open their doors. The house brew is a New England IPA brewed with two-row barley, oats and Vienna and wheat malts, bright floral, soft citrus and grapefruit tones, with notes of lychee and tropical fruit in every sip.
“This has been a long time coming,” said Nick Bogacz, Caliente’s owner and founder. “We’ve always been passionate about serving great, hard-to-source craft beers, and now we can share a beer that we’ve brewed ourselves with help from experts and friends in the industry.”
The beer is being released just as Caliente opens its sixth and seventh locations in Sewickley and Crafton in the coming weeks. Customers will get to try the authentic flavors of their beer, while also getting acclimated to Caliente’s new stores. Grand opening information on the new stores, as well as other significant developments, is coming soon.
“We’ve got a lot of big things coming in the next few months, including our 10-year anniversary in 2022,” Bogacz said, “The release of Hazy Dough Dazy is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the new businesses and new relationships with residents in the Sewickley and Crafton areas.”
Caliente invites customers to pair the beer with their award-winning pizza options, including the Mee Maw, which was named Best Pizza in America in 2019. Head Regional Chef Eric von Hansen also brought home accolades this summer with a win for best Non-Traditional Pizza, Northeast Region, at the International Pizza Expo for his Tony Montana pizza, a bison-topped pie. It will be available on a limited basis in the near future.
In addition, for the duration of football season, Caliente is teaming with former Steelers star Santonio Holmes on the MVP Pizza, with a dollar of each sale going to the Super Bowl MVP’s III and Long Foundation.

PITTSBURGH (June 14, 2021) — The title holders of Best Pizza in America has announced its plans to open two new stores in Sewickley and Crafton. The new locations will be Caliente’s sixth and seventh locations, adding to its current list of neighborhoods including Bloomfield, Mt. Lebanon, Hampton, Aspinwall, and as of 2019, Monroeville.
The new Caliente locations will take over the former Sharp Edge restaurants in Sewickley (510 Beaver Street Rear) and Crafton (288 W. Steuben Street).
Caliente’s owner, Nick Bogacz, has always been an admirer of Sharp Edges’ owner, Jeff Walewski. In a recent interview with Pittsburgh Business Times, Bogacz, said, “we’ll keep the tradition going that Jeff started of bringing and curating great beers from around the world.”
Each Caliente location features a unique beer selection that rotates monthly. Paired with savory food creations from Caliente’s regional chef, Eric Von Hansen and creator of the Best Pizza in America, Sewickley and Crafton communities will soon learn why Caliente is known for its craft beers and gourmet pizzas.
Caliente’s signature gourmet pizzas include the 2019 Best Pizza in America “Mee-Maw,” the Detroit “Red Top” pizza and the Quack Attack, otherwise known as the #1 pan pizza in the world. In March, Caliente released a new menu which includes three chicken sandwiches, new wing sauces and a gourmet vegan pizza.
Nick and Angie Bogacz, the Pittsburgh-native couple who founded Caliente in 2012, have rapidly expanded the restaurant chain throughout the Greater Pittsburgh region since its inception, winning multiple international awards along the way.
“In 2019, we announced our plans to open a new location in Green Tree, but the pandemic had other plans for us,” said Bogacz. “We were honored to work with Jeff Walewski on taking over the Sharp Edge locations, both of which offer optimal kitchen spaces and tap systems so that we can offer our full menu and more than 24 beers on tap at each location.”
The opening date has not been finalized yet, but Caliente is hiring for all positions. Interested applicants can apply by sending their resume to firstname.lastname@example.org or online at the website here: https://pizzadrafthouse.com/apply-to-caliente-pizza-draft-house/
