Pittsburgh Stop #1 - Giordano Brothers, San Francisco, CA

On Thursday afternoon – we had time to work on our individual projects.  I headed over to the Mission district to check out Giordano Brothers.  This place was recommended several times as THE Steelers bar in San Francisco.

From the outside – this place looks like a neighborhood bar in Anytown, USA…


Inside, its is very clear this place is all Pittsburgh…


And yes, this is a Pittsburgh style sandwich.  Duncan is the roommate of Tim Livingston, who writes for IheartPGH. He kindly agreed to join me on this mission of finding Pittsburgh people.


Our server, Ryan, was wearing a Pittsburgh t-shirt and hat and happened to be from Western, PA.  I handed him one of the IheartPGH stickers I brought along for the trip.  The stickers were printed by Pittsburgh print shop Commonwealth Press and Ryan happened to be wearing a Commonwealth Press t-shirt.  Ryan is also working on opening a sauerkraut and pickle company, Sivertsen Pickle Company. (You can buy this t-shirt from CommonWealth Press here).


The owner of Giordano Brothers, Adam DeMezza, is from Greensburg and has been in San Francisco for almost a decade.  I was assured the place is packed on game day – and yes they do serve Iron City beer.
