A wide selection of gourmet pizzas and comforting pasta awaits you at the The Main Street Pizza Company. The menu also features a long list of appetizers including fried green tomatoes, hot wings, and king crisps as well as salad options like Greek and quinoa power salad.

Currently on tap are flavorful beers such as the Vaudevillian Tart Cherry Cider, Belgian Quad, Raspberry Mocha Stout, and Kick of Coriander. The brewery features seasonal specials, too, so the beer list changes often.
