Beers Pinthouse Lamar
About Our Beer
We like hops here at Pinthouse Pizza... some may say we are a bit obssesed with them, but we also like balance and drinkability and, we work tirelessly to create innovative beers of all styles that showcase the highest quality ingredients that we source for them. Whether it is our award-winning Nomura DIPA (2017 Alpha King 3rd place), Fully Adrift Double IPA (2014 Alpha King Runner Up and 2015 L.A. International Beer Competition Silver Medal), our delectably bold Bearded Seal Dry Irish Stout (2017 GABF Gold Medal), elusive Jaguar Shark Barrel Aged Stout (2015 L.A. International Beer Competition Gold Medal, 2014 GABF Bronze Medal, 2014 L.A. International Beer Competition Bronze Medal) or our next Pilot IPA offering, we brew every beer to be delicious, drinkable and to pair well with 6 more!

Strange But Not Strangers Double SMaSH IPA – 6.9% ABV

Island Kitty PKIPA - 6.5% ABV
We first brewed Island Kitty IPA, a Painkiller-inspired Northeastern IPA last year in honor of Ryan “The Island Cat” Van Biene’s (a PHP owner) Birthday. A little background, a Painkiller, is a rum cocktail that originated at the Soggy Dollar Bar in the British Virgin Islands. This beer is brewed with Amarillo, Simcoe, Ekuanot, and Huell Melon hops, along with pineapple, blood orange, coconut, and nutmeg. The result is a truly tropical IPA, with a full body, some underlying hop character, and it basks in the notes of juicy pineapple, tropical fruit, coconut, and nutmeg! If you need a vacation in a glass, head over right meow, the Island Kitty will not disappoint!
Tap Date: July 21, 11:00 am

Brewed with some of our favorite new hop varieties from our favorite hop farmers - Citra, Simcoe, Chinook, Ekuanot, Azacca, and Galaxy.

The Jellyfish is a hazy new school IPA focusing on the juicy hop flavor and aroma while keeping the bitterness balanced and refreshing.
“You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.” – Frank Zappa
