As its name implies, Pies & Pints’ menu is centered on specialty pizza and craft beer. Consumers can stop in for weekly happy hours and special events, such as local brewery takeovers. Each location includes a white elephant mural based on the one that was found while building the original location. As the chain is expanding outside of its home state of West Virginia, it has maintained a large following there: It’s the state’s most recommended restaurant on Facebook, according to USA Today.
