Awards & Media

At Pinthouse Pizza, our goal is to serve award-winning beer and hand-crafted pizza in a warm and casual setting. And, we’ve been working hard since 2012 to brew great beer and bake some tasty pies!

We’d like to toot our own horn a little bit – OK a lot – by giving you a chance to check out some of the awards and accolades we’ve received since opening in October of 2012. If you want to try one of our award winning beers, keep an eye on our Tap Schedule for upcoming beer releases! Or, take a look at our Live Tap Feed for a real time capture of our current beer menu boards.

“There is an ancient Celtic axiom that says ‘Good people drink good beer.’ Which is true, then as now.” – Hunter S. Thompson
