Our Story

Pinthouse Pizza was founded by six guys who share a passion for craft beer and good food. We love Austin, and we are excited to help contribute to the energy and originality that make Austin a vibrant community. Our goal is to serve award-winning beer and hand-crafted pizza in a warm and casual setting. For details on our vendors and suppliers, trade organizations, and memberships, check out the info below…

Pizza and Beer

“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” – Benjamin Franklin

Our Vendors & Suppliers

From our hops vendors to our produce supplier to our sausage house and to our soda distributor, Pinthouse Pizza focuses on quality and sustainability. Where possible, we’ve worked to source locally and organic to support both the ecology and our friends and neighbors.

Check out some of our favorite vendors and partners. They are good people!

Maine Root Organically sweetened sodas.  www.maineroot.com

Smart Flour Locally crafted gluten free pizza dough www.smartflourfoods.com

Smokey Denmark Premium quality smoked meats.  www.smokeydenmark.com

Texas Peafowl Farm 100% of the spent grain from our brewing process is re-purposed as peacock food. The peacocks would rather have a beer.  www.texaspeafowlfarm.com

Eldon James Corporation Eldon James is the manufacturer of a 100% PVC-free draft system beverage line. Pinthouse Pizza is the first brewery / brewpub to be 100% PVC-free in our draft system, which insures that our house beers and guest brewery offerings taste as clean as possible. We suggest you conduct a scientific study – by drinking beer – to confirm these findings. It is your duty to science.

Our Hops & Brewing Supply Partners

Thanks to all of our friends and partners in the brewing supply industry. We love your cones!

Indie Hops “Oregon grown aroma hops.” Smell the cone!  indiehops.com

Brewer’s Supply Group “Specialty malts & premium hops.” BSG, not to be confused with nerd shorthand for Battlestar Gallactica, the reboot of which confused the hell out of us.  brewerssupplygroup.com

Hop Union “Premium quality hops and uncompromising service.” Uncompromising service sounds like they are giving out extras at a massage parlor, but Hop Union is awesome!  www.hopunion.com

SS Steiner “Serving brewers for over six generations!” That is a lot of beards!  www.hopsteiner.com

Loeffler Chemicals We are clean freaks; Loeffler is enabling our OCD. Thanks guys!  www.loefflerchemical.com
