Cinderlands Beer Co. in Lawrenceville is one of 20 new breweries in the country in a competition to be voted the best in the land.

The brewery and restaurant landed on USA Today’s list of the top 20 new breweries in the country.

It was ranked No. 6 on the leaderboard around noon Wednesday.

People can vote for Cinderlands, which is described by USA Today as a brewer that “celebrates the self-made attitude of Pittsburgh in their brewery and scratch kitchen.”

On its website, Cinderlands says they “make beer and food that reflects the diversity of our community — both contemporary and familiar, high quality and inventive, serious and fun. We capture the evolving spirit of the IPA even as we hearken back to the lagers and ales that took the world by storm. And we invite you in to share in the warmth of that fervor.”

The brewery and restaurant opened in 2017 in Lawrenceville and produces a few types of beer, including their self-proclaimed “dad beer,” the Tracks Again pilsner.

People can vote once per day until March 25 and the winner will be announced by USA Today on April 5. Vote here.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
