The wife and I eat here at least once a month or more. Most recent visit was last week (2/10/2011).
A: First, it's located in a strip mall which isn't the easiest to navigate to. Inside, the decor screams college pizza joint on a low budget. They have expanded their dining room and it's about as fancy as the original. Typical TV's, small tables and nice jukebox with a 15 seater bar. They have recently recieved their federal brewers license, so expect to see some brewing equipment and more beer variety soon.
Q: Quality is pretty good on the beers for a pizza joint. Depending on the style, you'll get your beer in a sniffer or a pint glass. Growlers are also available for $10.00 per glass bottle (or bring your own to recycle) and then various prices for the type of beer served.
S: Service is pretty average. The issue is that the servers are limited and though extremely nice and knowledgeable about the beers they serve, the kitchen is painfully slow. Moreso if the restaurant is busy. If you have time to kill, it's great to just hang out and enjoy a beer there but not if you're in a rush.
Sel: If requested, they'll present you with a list of what's on tap that day. You'll find about 20 beers at any given time. I've had Erie Brewing's Golden Fleece in pints and Weyerbacher's Blithering Idiot Barleywine in a sniffer on recent visits. Every beer you'll find on the list is a craft beer and they carry a good choice of local brewery stuff from bold city and the like.
F: There's not much variety on the menu. Pizza and dipping sticks are just about it for food. The `za is pretty good though. I do like their sauce, and the crust is chewy and soft. It reminds me of Buffalo, NY pizza.

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.
