A winning combination of wood-fired pizza and forward-thinking craft beers—an irresistible pairing that happens to be eminently transportable—made this Lehigh Valley Mall-adjacent Taproom branch of the Swiftwater-based company a premier destination for fans of both specialties. Their recently launched Pocono Winery now brings pinot grigio, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, moscato, and more to the spirited mix—by the bottle, glass, flight, and even mixed in cocktails (as are, more surprisingly, beers). Five flagship beers infused with local flavors, including signature Wally Wilson, are available for takeout, and growlers expand variety. Twenty taps, with 10-plus house brews (including seasonal favorites like stouts and porters that showcase brewer Jean-Luc Vitiello’s creativity) and the remainder regional-friendly IPAs, fill two sizes of classic and innovatively designed growlers, like the genie bottle with a silicone pop-top.

Pizza baked in the Italian-import oven reflects the style of Naples, birthplace of founder Silvio Vitiello, Sr.—traditionally eaten with a knife and fork. However, the menu’s broad assortment of standards, plus specials, now features the firmer fresh mozzarella that better accommodates an American pick-up approach to slices. Creamier imported ovaline mozzarella, offering an elegant mouthfeel, may still be ordered as an upgrade. Classic red-sauce pizzas with abundant topping choices are supplemented with white pizza variations, such as the Tuscany. A heady marriage of mozzarella, fresh basil and spinach, roasted red peppers, red onions, and grilled shrimp may easily revise your definition of pizza perfection.
