I was staying at a hotel about three miles away so I wanted to give this place a shot. I was really hoping to bring some beer home in a growler, but they were sold out of the 32oz growlers. This was the third place today that was sold out of the 32oz! Tip for brewpub owners: Keep more 32oz grolwers on hand. Not everyone wants to buy 128 ozs of beer!
The place was nondescript and lacked any real atmosphere. There was a tv with college gymnastics playing and some music, but nothing else really. The place was mostly empty until about 6 when everyone started showing up.
The bartender was nice. She was kind of busy taking care of the whole damn place, though. They should have had someone else come in for some help, but I was at the bar so I was taken care of.
The selection was pretty impressive. I was a little confused about which ones of their beers they had. The place is named Brewers but none of the beers on the list are from "Brewers". I guess the brewery is called Pinglehead. Pretty confusing. They only had two Pinglehead beers, one was a porter of 13% alcohol and the other was a brown ale. One extreme to the other.
They had some other local stuff like Bold City and Intuition, Aardwold and Cigar City and other run of the mill stuff like Terrapin, DFH and Weyerbacher.
I liked the place overall and would go back. I was able to bring my own growler in to have filled which was nice, but they should have their own.

This is the best pizza/brewery combination I have been to yet. The staff was very nice and their in-house selection of beers was great. If you are there and enjoy "reds" try their Imperial Red, it has a great taste and you can throw a few back. The first time I was there they had the Ms. Lovin which was phenomenal, it had a great peanut butter taste and was nice and thick.

I've never been here when it was busy, so unlike the person who said service was bad when it was busy, all I can say is that it's been fine while I was there.
Here's my nutshell review:
Very good beer selection -- their own and plenty of others. Big-screen, scrolling beer menu is a nice touch.
Food -- very reasonably priced.
Atmosphere is poor. It's clean, etc. and I hate to say it, but I think their business would double if they got some better furniture and something besides white paint on the walls. It all seems very strip-mallish.
I can't help but think that the confusion of having the place called "Brewer's Pizza" while the brewing part is call "Pinglehead Brewing" hurts their business as well.
This is a hidden gem as far as I'm concerned. Wish we had a place in St Augustine as good.
