“"The Fridge" a worthwhile stop and revisit”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

The inspiring and well organized selection of bottled beer can be mixed and matched for 6 pack varieties to go or enjoyed in house. The bottles are priced well. The interesting and ever changing drafts are at higher price points but extremely enjoyable and encourage repeated sampling. "Flights" are available as well.

The pizzas are delicious and made based on available fresh ingredients. There are several appealing non-pizza items as well.

The staff is warm, friendly, and competent. A clean place - very relaxed atmosphere - good for dates or hanging out with friends. The popularity can be reflected in the number of people and parking spaces but for a good reason. It there were more room or more parking it probably wouldn't have the same charm. Just fine the way it is.

An occasionally burning wood stove depending on the number of people adds even more charm.

A choice destination and "neighborhood gem"

“Great atmosphere, food and beer!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

The artisan style pizza is wonderful and the incredible selection of beers is amazing. The friendly atmosphere is a plus. If you want to have a good time with friends in a casual place this is it.

“Amazing beer selection”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

We stopped in on a Friday, around 6 and it was pretty busy. The seating arrangements can be a bit chaotic, grab what you can. There's no sort of list so it can be hard to tell who's content to stand and eat versus who is trying to get a table. It was nice outside so after a wait we grabbed two seats at the outdoor area. The pizza selections are seasonal and unique. You have to either order what is there and on the cold side or wait until a new pizza comes out, they run out of popular selections often. We ended up staying for a long time since our beer selections were excellent. Great place to run up a pretty large tab on pizza and beer. Couldn't do it every Friday but think we will return each season to taste the fresh selections of both beer and pizza. Would be a good place to bring out of town guests for a casual night out.

“Craft Beer & Pizza”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Great place lunch or for a casual Friday night with friends. The pizza menu changes daily based on whatever fresh ingredients they get from local farmers. They range from traditional Margaretta to wildly creative pies.

INSANE beer selection! The owner is a beer genius and has ridiculous connections with breweries/vendors across the nation. Hard to find, rare shipments come in just about every week.

The only downside is that the place is tiny and gets PACKED with people, especially on the weekends. Like sardines in a can. Not anyone's fault...but definitely something you should be prepared for. Iron Hill is always down the street as an ok plan B.
