Roundabout Brewery now serving pints

Roundabout, the Lawrenceville microbrewery from Steve and Dyana Sloan, is now selling beer by the pint out of its facility at 4901 Butler Street. In celebration of its new brewpub status, Roundabout has added two new beers to its tap list: a fresh batch of Pacific Ring IPA, made with domestic Cascade and New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops, giving it a fruity and sweet mouth feel with a dry and bitter finish, and a keg of dry stout made with brettanomyces fermentation which it will sell only by the glass.

Roundabout opened last summer and became an instant local favorite for its innovative variety of styles and near-flawless execution.

Casa Rasta coming to East Liberty

Casa Rasta, the popular, Caribbean-style Beechview taco spot, will open a second location at 130 S. Highland Avenue in East Liberty next month.

While the new location won’t have a liquor license at the outset, ownership is in the process of applying for one. The space has been vacant since Ethiopian eatery Abay closed last summer.
