|Inside The Pizza and Taproom|
Opened just last month and owned by Matt Moore and Chancie Adams (who also own the Martin City Brewing Company Pub), the Pizza and Taproom sits on 135th St. between the pub and the new brewery - with an open-air patio on the side for warm-weather months.

The menu is definitely more upscale than regular bar food. Besides speciality pizzas in various sizes, appetizers, sandwiches, salads, and build-your-own pizza options are available.
