About Us

A strong commitment to quality, community, and innovation is what drives Dough Daddy Beer Co., and we’re excited to share this new adventure with you.

From the beginning, Caliente Pizza & Draft House has had a strong presence in Pittsburgh’s craft beer community, and the award-winning chain is taking its footprint to the next level with the launch of its brewing company, Dough Daddy Beer Company.

Since its founding in 2012, Caliente has hosted more craft beer events than any other bar in the city and done collaborations with at least 12 breweries throughout the state and around the country. Contract brewing was a natural next step for the chain, and an opportunity to dive even deeper into its passion for sharing unique, locally crafted food and drinks with the community.

Caliente owner and founder Nick Bogacz has always recognized the interplay between beer and pizza. “Early on, I realized that craft beer and pizza go so well together, not just from a dining perspective, but because of the similarities between the two worlds,” said Bogacz. “Brewers are highly skilled at their craft and are known for using unique, high-quality ingredients in their brewing. Often, this starts as a passion project for them out of their homes. A lot of pizzerias start the same way, cooking in their home kitchens, doing something they love, with the best ingredients possible.”
