Rosa Parks became a Civil Rights pioneer in Montgomery by courageously taking a stand and not giving up her seat which sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum and Library is a tribute to that memorable movement.

The Shoppes at EastChase Announces Pies & Pints
Craft pizza and beer restaurant opens first Montgomery location

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (June 24, 2016) – The Shoppes at EastChase today announced that Pies & Pints, a craft pizza and beer restaurant, is set to open its first Montgomery location near Zoës Kitchen at The Shoppes later this year.

Pies & Pints is a Columbus, Ohio-based concept offering artisan pizza, sandwiches, and salads along with more than 30 craft beers on tap. In addition to offering traditional, gluten-free and build-your-own pies, the restaurant features more exotic combinations, such as grape and Gorgonzola, chicken Gouda and Sriracha shrimp. All pies are hand-stretched and baked directly on a stone hearth with scratch-made tomato sauce and fresh herbs.

"We are excited to continue our growth and push southward into Alabama,” said Rob Lindeman, Pies & Pints owner. “Montgomery and Eastchase are a perfect fit for Pies & Pints - Craft Pizza and Beer.  The city is vibrant and the center creates a draw and destination for our high-quality, high-flavor concept featuring a menu of made from scratch items." 

“We are thrilled to bring Pies & Pints, another market-exclusive restaurant, to The Shoppes at EastChase,” said Jeff Branch, general manager of The Shoppes at EastChase. “The combination of artisanal food and craft beer is perfect for the capital city and will be a fantastic addition to the current restaurant mix at The Shoppes.”

This will be the second location in Alabama with the first in Birmingham, which opens this summer. Pies & Pints currently has nine locations in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky.

“Pies & Pints will be an excellent spot to unwind after a tough work day and enjoy the best selection in craft brews and happy hour on the east side,” said Suzanna Wasserman, marketing manager of The Shoppes at EastChase.
