Pizza and Beer

“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” – Benjamin Franklin

Our Vendors & Suppliers

From our hops vendors to our produce supplier to our sausage house and to our soda distributor, Pinthouse Pizza focuses on quality and sustainability. Where possible, we’ve worked to source locally and organic to support both the ecology and our friends and neighbors.

Check out some of our favorite vendors and partners. They are good people!

Eldon James Corporation Eldon James is the manufacturer of a 100% PVC-free draft system beverage line. Pinthouse Pizza is the first brewery / brewpub to be 100% PVC-free in our draft system, which insures that our house beers and guest brewery offerings taste as clean as possible. We suggest you conduct a scientific study – by drinking beer – to confirm these findings. It is your duty to science.
