Out and About: When Pigs Fly Pizzeria (@PigsFlyPizza)
Last night I visited When Pigs Fly Pizzeria in Kittery,ME. Yes, Kittery is still considered the Seacoast even though it isn’t in NH and being only 4 miles up the road it’s close enough for me!When Pigs Fly is known for their awesome bread but they recently opened a Pizzeria next store and I heard rumors of a crazy tap list. Naturally I had to check it out. Spoiler Alert: Best Tap Selection on the Seacoast.
To start, the inside has a nice rustic feel but even on a crazy hot day like it was, it wasn’t very hot inside. At 5:30 it was packed and we sat at the bar to wait for a table which took about 20 mins. This gave me a chance to scope the tap list out. Here is a cut out from Taplister of what you will find on tap here (click the photo to go to the Taplister page):
The prices are about $5-$6 per pint and they have a bottle list as well featuring local brews. I went after the Maine Peeper to see how she was on Draft. Sure enough it’s as great as ever. I followed that up with a (possibly overpriced) bottle of Rising Tide Ishmael Copper Ale. After the first sip I was perfectly fine paying the bottle price but was assured it is cheaper at stores. Two great Maine beers you need to try! I want to know their secret of how they got the variety they did on tap but I guess it’s easier to drink and let the bar manager worry about it. They also have WINE ON TAP. Never seen that before but it was cool to see Wine and Beer on the same draft line, together in perfect harmony :).
To the food. We ordered a bread sampler which was filling and probably not the best appetizer before Pizza. I can see myself and m’lady ordering th bread plate as we have a couple brews on a lazy day for sure. The bread plate has a selection of their breads of the day. We had Tomato Basil bread, Pepper/Garlic and a couple others I can’t remember, all served with oil and vinegar, mmm. The pizza we had was the Medjool Date pizza which had Soppessata, Fresh Mozarella, Mike’s Hot Honey, Pecorino Romano, Sea Salt and Evo. Great pie! Nice light crust and the honey was a nice touch (which is also sold by the bottle in the store nextdoor).
In conclusion this is a big win for Kittery and they won’t be gone anytime soon since they are right near the outlet mall which has a bazillion shoppers (mostly mean french people) a day. I see myself going their for a beer as I let Lisa do her outlet shopping. Check it out if your in town. For more information check out their website here (link)
