Erie, PA (June 16, 2017) — Erie Brewing Company and John’s Wildwood Pizzeria proudly announce Pub & Pie, a new brewpub destination opening at 6008 Knowledge Parkway, Erie, PA 16510. Pub & Pie will feature Erie Brewing Co. beers along with a newly expanded menu from John’s Wildwood Pizzeria in a uniquely designed brewpub atmosphere.

In June 2016, Erie Brewing Co. announced its relocation to a newly constructed 20,000-square-foot building in Harborcreek that houses the company's brewery, where it produces more than 6,500 barrels of craft beer annually for distribution throughout the East Coast. Visitors can take a self-guided tour of the state-of-the-art brewing process down a glass-walled corridor behind the Main Bar.

The new building is also the home to a long-awaited second location of John's Wildwood Pizzeria. The pizzeria has its own sit-down dining area and take-out service with all the homemade, hand-crafted menu items made popular in their original Edinboro location.

The new venue delivers the simple, but perfect idea of “craft beer meets craft pizza” with their concept brewpub “Pub & Pie” which features custom tasting tables, ample seating and booths, a central fireplace gathering area, an entire second floor with its own bar and private party rooms, and a porch facing Lake Erie in the distance and patios on both the ground and second floors.

“We’re excited to bring this collaboration to life in Erie,” said Rob Lowther, Erie Brewing Co.’s Owner and General Manager. “It’s a perfect match made in Erie for craft beer and pizza lovers, and we appeal to anyone looking for a unique brewery and dining experience.”

John’s Wildwood Pizzeria has been a fan favorite restaurant in Edinboro, PA since its opening in 1979.

“We’ve been looking for the right opportunity to open another location for a long time.” said John Bellucci, Owner, John’s Wildwood Pizzeria. “We’ve gotten countless requests from our Erie customers over the years. This opportunity to pair with Erie Brewing Co. was the perfect chance to give our customers a new location option alongside the best craft beer in the region in a fantastic new setting.”
