I came here with my sister after it was recommended by someone on Facebook. We were staying in nearby Carriage Hills Resort and after walking Barrie's main bar lined main street looking for somewhere to go on a cold August night and finding the scene less than lively we decided to drive the few km and head to Barnstormer Brewing and Pizzeria. It's in a small strip mall with a nice front. First thing we noticed is that the parking lot was packed which is always a good sign. We liked the atmosphere and took the only available table at the back. They had a live muscian playing covers of great songs so for us sitting at a back table that was less noisy was ok. We ordered one of their home brews (forget the name but it was the blonde one top of the menu). I really liked it and would order it again; surprisingly good for me and I usually order Mill St. Organic, Stella, Blue Moon. We split the mixed greens salad with cranberries, pumpkin seeds and goat cheese. Nothing fancy but very tasty and hit the spot... so far so good. We are both huge pizza lovers and couldn't wait to for it. We split a custom pizza with roasted red peppers, black olives, red onions and I forget what else :) . It was 15" and absolutely delicious; the dough was so soft and gooey and had some extra flavouring which I attribute to the possibility of them adding beer into the batter. We have both eaten at some of the trendy pizza places in Toronto like Terroni and Queen Margheretta and think their dough is superior. I am still thinking of it and will try and make it back this weekend when I am in the area again - and possibly bring home a souvenir glass or brew.
