Pittsburgh on a Plate
The way to a beer lover’s heart is mapped out on notNeutral’s plate, which highlights Pittsburgh breweries (and other points of interest) across the city.

This may just be the perfect plate to load up with a Primanti Bros. sandwich, pierogies and a slew of other Pittsburgh food favorites.
The Pittsburgh plate ($50) from notNeutral — part of its American Craft Cities Collection — is adorned with an intricate map of Pittsburgh that celebrates the city’s dozens of craft breweries.
In addition to notable beer houses, the plate highlights Carnegie Mellon University, the Sen. John Heinz History Center and Herr’s Island (home to Pittsburgh Magazine), along with other cultural points of interest, including the Pittsburgh Opera and Andy Warhol Museum.
Key buildings on the 12-inch diameter porcelain plate are represented with persimmon icons, while rivers and public spaces are shown in blue and green. Each plate comes with a printed key detailing the portion of the city represented on the plate.
The item would look equally great as just a decorative item, but if you do choose to use it at parties, or for an everyday dinner, clean up is easy: The plate is dishwasher and microwave safe. Use the extra time to sit back and relax, perhaps by enjoying a beverage from a brewery mapped out on your new plate.
