Drew and Leah Watson worked in fine-dining spots across the country, but when they decided they wanted to run their own place that would take the simple combination of pizza and beer and raise it to something exceptional, they moved to Denver. They found a sliver of a spot amid all the restaurants popping up in the Berkeley neighborhood. The Watsons filled half the space with a bar that boasts a colorful array of tap handles pouring 22 varieties of craft beer, including the specially made Hops and pIe P.A. from Strange Brewing Company, which also goes into the pizza dough. The beer list keeps the bar seats full of microbrew geeks, chatting with the bartenders about the technical aspects of brewing. But the tables stuffed into the rest of the space are usually full, too, taken by a diverse group of neighbors, families and fans who are just as enthusiastic about the pizzas, made on a unique malt-infused crust and topped with everything from anchovies to fig jam. The pie list is supplemented with a handful of appetizers, one of which is a not-to-be-missed macaroni and cheese.
