Small nano brewery in a strip mall restaurant. Nothing exceptional in the li eup, but they did manage to put up a variety of styles. Food centers on the pizza and sandwiches. Overall vibe was combo corner pub/neighborhood restaurant.
A very unusual live stage, pizza joint with a craft brewery all rolled into one in a pretty hodge podge sort of manner. Service was decent but nothing special. Selection was 5 beers on tap all which were pretty bad except one which was sublime. Food is a bit greasy and prices are a bit high for what it is. I would say skip it, but the one beer we had was so good that is almost worth a stop on the change they have more fluky genius.
Pizza joint with a 1.5bbl nano. One extremely good beer out of six- the galaxy Pale. Others were just okay. Beers were served a little too cold. Nachos were not very good. Greasy and undercooked cheese in parts. Worth a stop if you are driving through just for the galaxy pale if its on.

10/26/2014 - Small brewpub in a little strip mall with ample parking. Strange bar area design with a zig zagging bar. Don’t know how many house beers they normally have on tap but unfortunately they only had one house beer available during my visit, apparently due to a festival they were having the next day. Bummer. A few guest beers available including stuff from Maryland’s Evolution. The one house beer I tried was average and could use some fine tuning. Tried the Sicilian pizza which was good. Friendly service. A bit pricey but I wouldn’t mind coming back next time I’m in the area, hopefully next time they’ll have more of their beers on.
12/2/2016 revisit around 1 PM on a Friday. Much more business than my previous visit two years ago, plenty of open bar seats. Very friendly bartender, just the one working the entire bar but he was fairly attentive. This time they had 8 of their own beers on tap, got a flight of 5 and sampled what I missed from a friend. You could probably get the remainder for however much single tasters cost. Their beers were all above average with a couple standouts, definitely much better than the one I had two years ago. Had the buffalo chicken eggrolls and a chipotle burger medium, probably should have gotten it medium rare. Nothing too special but both hit the spot for lunch. My friend loved his scrapple medium rare burger. Fair prices. Worth a stop if passing through Newark or Wilmington, nice stop paired with Iron Hill.
Ah, now this is a classic Mid-Atlantic pizza joint (and small music venue), if a bit roomier: comfy, dark, soap-sticky tables, and lots of hard-earned character; the big difference? The food was very good.
Oh, and they have beer on on a very small scale -- a quick look at the equipment in back and I’m surprised to learn they’re operating at 1.5bbl, seems like half-that. On the plus side to the size, every new batch can be different, as space frees up quickly, and they’ve taken to the spirit of innovation. Hits and misses among the flights, but all the beers had something slightly unusual about them and I admire the full-developed body and mouthfeel that seems to be standard -- no watery brewpub fare here.
Above all, friendly people and honestly, if I may be so bold, good people. I’ll be back.
Pietro’s is a great family pizza joint with good fresh ingrediants. Nice friendly staff. The beer can be hit or miss, and somitimes the quality is off. They do come up with some different styles and the taps are always changing because they are very small batch.
On the outside, this looks like any other pizza-joint-in-a-stripmall. On the inside, though, it’s a gem - a perfect marriage between traditional pizza joint and homebreweing kicked up a notch. They’ve been doing the pizza for 30+ year) and added the 1.5 barrel brewery when the owner’s son got into homebrewing. Above all, good people. In fact, this was the only douchebag-free experience I had in a two day trip to Jersey and Delaware. Barman Eric was really enthusiastic, and even the Exec Chef, Jonatahon came out of the kitchen to explain their progress in serving up top notch local, fresh food, beyond just the amazing pizza. Definitely the type of local place worth supporting.
A nice, unpretentious pizza joint with good beer. There were four house drafts and three guest drafts. We had just missed the Friday 5-gallon small batch beer, though at 1.5 barrels, you can argue that all batches are small. The menu is simple and the food quite good. We had the onion rings, and I would rank these near the top of the onion rings I have eaten. The Crabby Nappa pizza was good as well. Overall, a good establishment to hit after a hard day of shopping at State Line Liquors.

Stopped in for lunch today, was lost in DE.,,sooo. Clean joint. The brews were fair to middlin, nothing exceptional though their cream ale was fairly quaffable, surprisingly. Served on nitro. Other beers were decent also. The white pizza was damn good good! Facilities were clean. Plenty of parking. Played alot of good classic rock, hell when wqas the last time you heard Grand Funk while you were out to ANY meal? HUh? I enjoyed this place. Friendly service, somewhat beer knowledgeable and the prices weren,t bad either. Sorry Bricks not sure what was overpriced? I,ll be back!
