Finally stopped in to When Pigs Fly Pizzaria. I only live a mile from this place and only been one other time, my first experiance was just just after it opened and I was less than impressed. But my wife and I tried again. Must say it was a better than before all around for the most part. Beer selection rotates, so diferent brews on tap and bottle all the time. But they keep a good selection of craft brews from around the country and world. Pizza was much better this time around than last. Of course we had to try the bread sampler, which I highly recommend because I am a huge fan of their breads! Staff was knowledgable and friendly. The only thing I can complain about was the atmosphere. It is way too loud in that place, I had to yell to my wife, who was right next to me, just to ask what she was getting. But overall decent place to stop if you are in the area and looking for something differant, in the line of pizza and beer that is.

The family and I stopped in here for lunch on the way home from Portland last weekend. There's the bread store where you will spend to much money on bread you just sampled next door. The pretzels are great and Chocolate bread is a real thing and you'll love it. Then there is this small brick oven pizzeria/sandwich shop/pub with a great tap list where you will spend too much money but you'll be smiling about it. So a tap list 20 or so deep and half pours and flights are available if you can't decide. Lots of Maine beer as well as regional and some well thought out national beers. The food is fantastic! I had an incredible pastrami on rye. Our table shared an order of fries with ketchup, sriracha, and horseradish dipping sauces. also great Two of us got pizza and one got buffalo chicken tenders. I sample all and loved what I tasted. My one beef with this place: We were here on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn't horribly busy, several empty tables. We were seated at a table that was waited on by the bartenders rather than a waiter or waitress. When the bar got busy with drink orders we got somewhat ignored. My glass was empty they didn't notice, we wanted to pay the check same thing. The food was superb atmosphere good tap list great I would go back in a heartbeat just give me waitstaff.

We love this place - it is a must-stop every time we head North for the bakery and a nice lunch with a good beer.

An industrial chic vibe to the place, yet somehow it feels "homey". Very comfortable, reasonably spacious. The patio-like indoor area is usually a bit more quiet. It can be loud and raucous in the main area around the kitchen, but it's a "good" noisy if that makes sense.

In general, the food has been excellent. We usually get an appetizer or two with the ungodly sounding sopressata, Medjool date, and hot honey pizza - yeah, well it is an awesome pie. The flavor that coal-fired over gives a pizza and the chew on the crust it develops is just fantastic. The only thing I can't recommend is anything to do with calamari - we had two plates of it that were BAD (soggy, fishy). The waitress handled it very nicely and we were happy with the eventual outcome, but it literally left a bad tastes in our mouths. While pizza is the big deal, we've had excellent sandwiches and small plates as well. Service has always been top shelf, and they do know the beer menu as well as the food menu.

The beer selection is nicely varied and interesting, but is never the same twice in our experience. I usually don't drink when we're on the road, but I always feel like this place calls for a beer. Rarely will I revert to me default iced tea. But we do the restaurant followed by the bakery for their amazing bread, ample samples, so I don't worry about hopping right back into the vehicle.

It isn't the least expensive place to eat, but the bread is a bargain. In our minds, it's worth the cost overall.

I'll admit, I was shocked at the quality and quantity of great beer on tap. No, it's not the most or best I've ever seen but you could plop this place down into a sizable city with lots of good beer options and it would still stand among the best. Amazingly, it's located sort of in the middle of nowhere. Food too was great and the service was prompt.

Standard stop for me and my family on our annual trips to Maine. Nice family atmospher great temperature for dining with inside and outside dinning. 20+ tap list full if local and abroad beers that will satisfy most pallets. Great wood fried pizza with a wonderful bread shop next door. Hostess was a bit of a bitch but the server was super friendly. Very good place deserving of a visit.

A real nice surprise, beer-wise in a tourist-centered area of Maine. The tap list hosts about 20 offerings, all of which are of decent quality. I went with a Stone 10th Anniversary Ruination and an Evil Twin Yang...nice choices not just for the area. Service was timely and somewhat knowledgeable about beer. Food was a bit more upscale than a typical pub or pizzeria...very solid.

This place has some great pizza and a decent selection of taps for the area. Beer selection includes a lot of well know craft breweries, as well as some less know local beers. They offer a beer sampler at a pretty decent price. At one point I think the sold beer by the growler but I haven't seen the growlers for sale in a while.
