Our Story

Pinthouse 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

Our Vendors & Suppliers

From our hops vendors to our produce supplier to our sausage house and to our soda distributor, Pinthouse 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!

Eldon James Corporation Eldon James is the manufacturer of a 100% PVC-free draft system beverage line. Pinthouse 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.
