Fireworks rocks! Fantastic pizza. Great service. Awesome beer selection. If I had one complaint it would be that the place is always packed. Always. This is because the food is so good and the beer selection is fabulous. Love this place. The bartenders are well trained and always willing to answer beer questions.

Fireworks is owned by the same folks who own the next door fine dining restaurant Tuscarora Mill and the same dedication to quality is evident here. Fireworks is basically an upscale pizza joint, but what makes it special is the beer selection.

There are 12 taps that rotate regularly. The bartender and beer guru Jessie manages to get an amazing array of kegs from near and far. The bottle selection is probably the best in Loudoun County (even though that's not saying much). They always have a nice selection of 750ml/22oz bottles across the spectrum from American IPA's, Imperial Stouts, Barleywines, Belgian Saisons and more. The smaller bottles and cans come from all over the US, Britain, Belgium and Germany. There are probably over 60 different bottles available at any time, and new selections come in on a weekly basis.

The service at Fireworks is outstanding - prompt and friendly. I almost always sit at the bar, and the bartenders have a unique quality here: they actually know about the beer they serve. BeerAdvocate members may not need basic advice, but it's fun to watch the bartenders turn hardcore Bud Light drinkers on to American craft beer. (There are no BMC beers at Fireworks, although Pabst Blue Ribbon is available).

The only downside from the perspective of someone who likes to spend a couple of hours sampling great beers and having a great time with my rowdy friends is that Fireworks is most definitely a family establishment. As in families with very young children sitting at tables next to the bar, and they frequently make a lot of noise. So I find that I have to constantly regulate my speech while tuning out the rug rats.

If you find yourself in Leesburg or anywhere in the vicinity of central Loudoun County, I highly recommend that you check out Fireworks Pizza.

If this was to be listed more of a beer bar and less of a gourmet, wood fired, pizza, this place would rank highly among beer bars in the country.
12 Taps rotating with local VA,DC,MD,DE brews and some of CA,CO,MI,ME's finest craft brews. The Bottle selection is Loudoun Counties finest in a bar.
The Knoweldge of the Management and staff is exceptional when it comes to the variety of beers and wines and how they compare to the various entree's.
If visiting the area, you need to stop through and enjoy a "Smokey Blue" pizza with a Green Flash double IPA, Ballast Point Scuplin IPA or any other of their current selections

I went to Fireworks Pizza while on a business trip to Leesburg based on reviews here on BA.
They have a nice long bar and small-ish dining area. Apparently they have recently added 4 more taps, totalling 12 I think?
They has Firestone Walker 15 on tap! It was amazing by the way...along with DFH Noble Rot, Ommegang Seduction, Tripel Karmeliet, FSW Union Jack, Lagunitas, and a handful of local Virginia brews. They also have an extensive bottle menu. Really fantastic selection!
The bartender was super nice and loved to talk beer.
The pizza was really good. Very fast and delicious. Prices were just above reasonable. The pizza was kind of pricy...$12 for a 10" pie seems high. The beer was reasonable though. $5 for local and up to $10 for a full pour of FSW 15.
Overall, I would certainly visit again if I ever find myself back in Leesburg.

Fireworks pizza is located in the historic district in the building that used to be a freight depot. Snuggled up against what used to be an old mill which houses another iconic Leesburg eatery, Tuscarora Mill. I admit I was disappointed once I walked in since it's sister business in Arlington, VA was at least five times bigger with a much larger beer selection...

Let's start with the bar - they have one of the most fun beer selections in our area - if you are the type of person who can let go of their PBR, RR, Bud! Saw they had HopSlam not too long before I arrived but was out unfortunately. I was compensated by Green Flash IPA on tap which was great. Usually 8 taps with something new all the time and much of it maps to the change in seasons. There are bottles galore ranging from American craft beer to a fun selection from Europe and around the Globe. Fireworks also has wine, but no spirits - but with the beer selection, who needs 'em??!!

On to the food....the menu is really well rounded from lite bites, salads, and antipasto to sandwiches, pasta, calzones and polenta dishes. Of course the superstar of this place is the wood-fired pizza. The great part of the crust isn't just the texture, flavor and aroma its that they do these free-form, no generic cookie cutter pizzas come outta these ovens!
