I stopped by with my family while passing through Charleston based on the BA review.

P&P is in a nice, comfortable area of the city. The interior is narrow and deep with good space but some congestion at the server station. It's somewhat modern but still relaxed and comfortable.

The tap list had a few WV beers and several others including SN Hoptimum. We went with a WV pale ale. It was fresh and tasty.

The menu has a great selection of pizzas. The combinations were very interesting and the pizzas themselves were pretty solid. The spinach salad was very good and the wings were decent.

The service is attentive and hard working though maybe not hard core into beer.

P&P was a great lunch stop for us. If in the area, I would certainly stop in again.

Cool place. Seven taps including a couple WVa locals and PBR. Thirty bottles or so, good variety of styles.

Had a great Italian hero. Pleasant service. Great stop.

A great place.

Vibe - always good, but always packed. It's worth the wait.

Quality - first class for the area. One of the best craft beer inspired pubs I've been to in the state of WV.

Service - my server was quite knowledgeable on craft beer. Maybe not so much in general of the best stuff in the world, but she knew the products available in state and what she sold. Can't ask for more than that.

Selection - okay so it's a bit down in grade but only due to what WV as a market has to offer. On the up side they do offer the best of the best that's available to them. Again, you couldn't ask for more.

food - top shelf pizzas. More combinations and signature creations than one could imagine. I know pizza, and this is the best pizza in charleston and possibly even the state. The food alone is worth it's price.

This place has it all. Best service, food, and beer selection in Charleston, WV. The staff are super-knowledgable with their brews, especially the bartenders.

I visited Pies and Pints a few times while working in the area. It is located downtown Charleston right around the corner from Black Sheep Burritos and Brews (Charleston Brewing Company). They had a small patio area on the sidewalk out front. Inside was a small bar with about eight stools. The restaurant area was small from what I saw on my bathroom visits. If the bar was full I would walk past and go to the aforementioned Black Sheep for a couple until the crowd cleared out.

I had three different bartenders on my visits. All were great. They were friendly and knowledgeable of the limited West Virginia craft beer scene. They had seven or so rotating craft handles with bottle and can selections. I primarily stick with drafts, so I forget the number of bottles and cans. I had some West Virginia beers, Great Lakes, Southern Tier, etc. It was a good selection for what the state allows and can get.

I ate at the place a couple of times. The first time was with my best gal. We got the Classic pizza. I liked it and my gal loved it. It is always a good thing when she likes eating at a place with good beer. The other time I tried the Pine and Swine, a pineapple and bacon pizza which was also good. They have a lot of specialty pizzas with interesting toppings.

For what Charleston has to offer as far as beer joints go this is at the top of the list. The staff was fantastic. They are as good as I have seen any place. They informed me that a Pies and Pints opened in Easton while I was there with forty tap handles. I am eager to check it out and see if it is as amicable.

Located right in downtown Charleston, the restaurant is pretty cramped, due to the weird long layout. The beer selection is very good by WV standards. They have a full bottle menu and always something nice on tap, including some locals. The pizza is awesome. I suggest the Cuban Pork or the Thai Pie. This place has a weird vibe compared to their original Fayetteville location, I guess it's the business district crowd. But if you want good beer and great pizza, this is the place to go in Charleston.

Fantastic food, great beer, but the cramped downtown Charleston setting is a real bummer for me

When you walk in the door, assuming you can even walk in the door, prepare to be created by a crush of people because of the way the bar is situated in relation to the door. Don't get me wrong, I really do love the place but it gets aggravating when every time I try to go it's at least a 45 minute wait to get a table.

I really can't recommend the place enough, just be ready (usually) to wait a bit for a table. The food & beer is completely worth it though.

One of the best places to get a craft beer in Charleston. Good rotating selection of draft and bottled microbrews, including multiple breweries from wv. They usually have a few great lakes, sierra nevada, bridge road brew works, and mountain state selections. The pizza is good, with a lot of unique options. The cuban pie and grape pie are two of my favorites. The pizza and beer is a little pricey for charleston, but not unreasonable.

I've been here a few times since the restaurant opened. The atmosphere is pretty cool, good music (thanks to pandora radio), however there isn't a whole lot of room in the bar area or seating in the restaurant. Quality is top notch, across the board, especially for the Charleston-Huntington area. The food is good and the beer selection is probably the best in this area. The pizza is great and fairly reasonable (price-wise). They have 8 tap handles that rotate fairly often, they'll typically have a Bridge Brew Works beer, a Rogue beer, a few other regionals, and PBR. Their bottle selection is fairly decent, probably 50 or so. Their staff is knowledgeable, hard-working, and extremely helpful. If you are in the Charleston area, this place is a must-see.
