City Plate - Pittsburgh

$50.00
Part of our ninth series of City Plates.  The theme of this collection is "American Craft Cities."  This collection celebrates a new generation of artists and creatives, the growing communities of DIYers, makers, and tinkerers that are collectively revitalizing their cities.  A renaissance is under way as these cities’ abandoned spaces are being re-occupied by art show pop-ups, art galleries, bicycle shops, coffee roasters, breweries, production houses for hand-crafted goods, and many other start-up businesses.

Historically the center of the American steel industry, Pittsburgh is now recognized for its booming brewing industry.  Craft beer is attracting a thriving new small business community, with dozens of breweries now operating in and around Pittsburgh.  The plate showcases breweries, Carnegie Mellon University, and other cultural points of interest.  CMU and its alumni are credited with inventing many things, including the study of computer science, robotics, and even emoticons.
