Piece is basically a big barn with beer. This barn is often very crowded and noisy, so, sorry, can’t give high marks for ambiance. Service is also spotty. It’s clear that they are a volume business and have to leave some pleasantries at the door....which doesn’t really bother me. I think the pizza is ok, but most of my pals love it. Either way, we both agree banana peppers are mandatory. Prices are very reasonable for food, and there’s a great take-out special for a pie and a growler. Piece brews and guest beers are excellent, and priced reasonable. Camel Toe is one of the best IIPA’s you’ll ever put in your guts. Great place to go with a large group, but if it’s the weekend, expect to yell....and wait for a table.
2/19/16 - Came late one Friday, very crowded but able to get a seat at the bar. This place was highly recommended for the pizza and beers, a recommendation not only spot on, but even exceeding my high expectations. The two beers I had, The Bowie Beer and the award winning The Weight Beer, were excellent, as good as their respective namesakes. The pizza was very good, in terms of taste, texture and crust. Not sure why I never made it here before, though I definitely want to hit this again, both for the beer and pizza.
East coast style pizza and beer destination. Taplist includes both their own beers (expect a weizen, at least one IPA, goldenarm, and one dark) as well as a few beers from other breweries (including some locals). Generally also a seasonal collaboration or specialty which is what we go there for. Easy to get to from Wicker Park Blue Line (Damen/North/Milwaukee) stop. Go early to avoid the crowds and a wait.
Huge pizzas, a couple of excellent beers, tons of TVs with college football on and a very nice space. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Value was very good. Pizza was outstanding. Probably only 8 beers on tap but a bunch of guest taps as well from local breweries. Cool place.
