Summer is winding down, but Pittsburgh’s business community isn’t! There are a variety of new businesses in the area to visit this August.
Necromancer Brewing— 2257 Babcock Blvd, Ross Township
Necromancer Brewing, opened March 1st, is brining back forgotten beer styles to the ‘Burgh. This eclectic brewing company has can pours on site as well as 4 packs to go. The current beer selection varies from A Hop With No Name, a hazy IPA with experimental hop, to All In, a rye imperial stout. There are plans to open a 9,000-square-foot taproom, restaurant and production facility by 2022.
Necromancer Brewing is open Friday 4 p.m.-10 p.m., Saturday 12 p.m.-10 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m.-4 p.m. Check out their website at necromancer.beer .
Spring Street Studios— 100 E Spring Street, Zelienople
Spring Street Studios, opened at the end of May, is a woman owned and operated store offering glass products, as well as a variety of glass-making classes. The handmade glass for sale is from over 30 different artists from the glass-making community. Classes include glass fusing, casting, and stained glass making.
Spring Street Studios is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Thursday 11 a.m.-8 p.m. You can visit their website at www.thespringstreetstudios.com.
40 North Restaurant and Bar— 40 W North Avenue, North Side
40 North Restaurant and Bar opened earlier this summer to much excitement. The new restaurant located in Alphabet City in the North Side is headed by Bethany Zozula, who previously worked as executive chef of the now-closed Whitfield. The menu is more vegetable forward than the Whitfield, but there are options for meat lovers as well. A few notable items are the Khachapuri (Grilled Georgian cheese bread), spelt tabbouleh, and a braised lamb wrap.
40 North Restaurant and Bar is open Tuesday-Thursday 5 p.m.-9 p.m. and Friday-Saturday 5 p.m.-10 p.m. You can check out more of their menu and make a reservation on their website: 40northpgh.com.
