10/4/2010 visit: food is still good, prices during the day are nice 4 bucks a pint, they are still in the process of expanding the dinning room. Love the quarters only junkbox, lol.
had CCb brown, Red brick (Atlanta brewing) porter, DF sai'tea
all in 14 oz shaker pints, except for DFH was in sniffer. decent beer at a good price, pizza was good, tad chewy, but fresh.
Aug 2010 first visit:
A: its strip mall pizza joint with beer, wow original not. Still its got nice booths, not much else going on.
Q/S: well they had over 20 taps of the same stuff every place in town seems to have except for kickbacks. While I think its great we have BCB, their beers are just not the great IMHO
So decent selection nothing better than any Euro street in town.
Beers I had were ok. Mostly they had pa/IPA stuff sadly. Midnight oil was the best. Since the BEST bar in town has 84 taps well its all downhill from there, and heck its the new standard.
Service: was ok, nothing great average in most respects, don't know much about beer.
F: its a pizza, fresh and hot, and few other things
Notes: its new and maybe it will get better with time, they fill growlers and will brew on site one day, but its not here yet.
Well me and the wife, well mainly me wanted to visit the new places. I really should not be reviewing these places on one visit, but seeing as its new, and the fact I will not go back again, I might as well review it. orange park distance is the main reason I would NOT go back, if you love it and are nearby great, traffic sucks in that area.
I try to be fair and honest and I want to be able to look someone in the eye and say yea its a great/fair/bad place.
as with any place or beer go try it, If you love it great.
I will NOT overrate a place just because it is in my town I live in, I feel that does a disservice to visitors.
I bet this place will get better, their web lacks updating and info.

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.
