This had quite a different atmosphere than the Pies & Pints in Fayetteville that I visited the day before. Much more of a restaurant, the only purpose the tiny bar up front served was as a waiting room for the folks waiting for tables to open up. Few were drinking, yet there wasn’t a seat to be had (10 PM or so on a Saturday night). handful of taps, far fewer and less crafty than Fayetteville, although there were a couple from Bridge on the bottle list. You could easily skip this place and not feel cheated out of anything on your pub crawl of Charleston.

Nice selection of pizzas that were pretty good (light, flavorful crust). The beer list when we went was a bit disappointing: 2-3 local kolsch or IPA and then some national standards. I’d go back but mainly for pizza.

This is in the heart of downtown Charleston. Parking is on the street. Their pizza combinations are good, my favorite is the Cuban pie. Atmosphere is modern, but slightly cramped. The bar is as soon as you walk in and and has limited seating (five or so seats), more or less there for people waiting for a table for a meal. I wouldn’t go out of my way necessarily, but if you are driving by around lunch or dinner stop by. They currently update their website often to what they have on tap (couple times a week). Usually nice selection of locals taps available, pretty good rotation on those taps, but limited number of taps. They now have half pints, a really nice option. They do the best job in town of a restaurant offering available bottles. They have the sampler option, but rarely have enough local taps to offer it, so weird.

Not overly impressed. Seemed to be an afterthought as a customer. Food selectionwas descent. Prices were fair. Beer selection was a little better than your average bar, but not much. Probably would go for blacksheep if back in town.

Nice location on a tree-lined street in downtown Charleston. Bar up front with a large seating area in the back. 3 of the 7 taps featured local WV beer from CBC and Bridge Brew Works. The barman was really friendly and eager to chat about beer. The food was so-so. Their pies are apparently pretty awesome, so I probably did the kitchen a disservice by ordering a sandwich. Overall, a recommended pit stop.

A very good choice for pizza and brews.
Beer selection is very good, with a solid selection of local and state brews.
We had a couple pizzas which were very tasty and filling. Nicely topped with fresh veggies, lotsa cheese and lighter on the sauce.
Went early for dinner and they were busy. Our waiter was prompt and efficient. Drinks and food arrived in a timely manner.
Will definitely be back next time.

Trying out a new place rating system with this one. PROS: Clean, modern interior, plenty of seating, solid bottle menu with good variety of styles, WV beer on tap (Bridge Brew Works), FAST turnaround from order placement to food arrival, Delicious pizza (great variety, great flavors), beer was solidly priced. CONS: Waiter did not know what a half pint was, only had two of the four BBW beers listed on website, bottled beers were varied but almost all were typical (not a creative selection), food was a little pricey (though very tasty, a minor quibble). OVERALL+NOTES: Definitely a destination for the area and the state (which still has a developing scene). Not an out-of-way destination; I wouldn’t divert my trip to drive here, unless it was my only chance at WV beer. If you are new to the area, there is a parking garage one street over (Summers St., I believe) with very reasonable rates; you can see this garage from the entrance of Pies and Pints if you look straight ahead.

Around the corner from Charleston Brewing. This place feels small with a small bar right inside the front door. Fewer taps than the Fayetteville location, but still a good selection of Bridge Brew and more interesting options for the rest of the tap beers. Bottle selection and the inaccuracy of the draft/bottle lists were the same as in Fayetteville. Bartender was very friendly and decently helpful. I found street parking nearby, and their are garages around. I did not try the food at this location.

This was a surprisingly great find while traveling. The food is really quite good - I was very happy; the pizza was dynamite. The beer selection wasn’t all that great on tap, but they did have a few local selections (and being as this is WV, I was excited about that). They had a much larger selection of bottles, which I was particularly happy with. If I’m ever in WV again, I’d happily stop back by here.

I had a great time here. Stopped in on a Tuesday night and took a seat at the bar. Wasn’t very busy but my understanding is it gets pretty crazy on the weekends. Bartender was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and very generous with free samples. As for food, I only had a Greek salad (which was excellent), so I can’t comment on the pizza except that it looked great. Decor is nice and the place is much bigger than it looks when you first walk in. Only 7 taps, but a nice variety including a couple of local selections. Bottle list is competent. Prices more than reasonable. If you visit Charleston, go here! If you live in Charleston, support this place! I want to come back here when I have business in Charleston again.
