Driving from NYC to Charlottesville, Virginia, the wife and I stopped at Al's/Pizza Boy for a brew and some pizza.

Located squarely in the middle of nowhere, this is an industrial-looking joint with brew tanks on view and the works. Inside the place looks like a high-school cafeteria, and the ordering system is annoying (one beer at a time, no tastings, no service).

But you know what, the pizza is delicious and the beer selection is stunning. 102 taps, including rarities like Creme Brulee, Founders Imp Stout, Palo Santo and Weyer Heresy on nitro, DuClaw Hell on Wood (bourbon barleywine), Liquid Hero Imp Stout, Full Pint Rye Rebelation plus a ton of Pizza Boy beers. I loved the Galaxy IPA, and also the Azazel (Imp Stout with chilies).

This is my kind of tap list: lots of variety, a ton of bourbon-aged stuff, big beers...

Draughts are priced between three and seven dollars, and they also sell growlers (only for takeout).

Service is minimal, and they do not accept tips. Take it for what it is and enjoy it. I look forward to experiencing Al's/Pizza again.
