Old Chicago

Old Chicago is located in the Vista of Columbia, SC.
Since it is a taproom as well as a pizzeria, we stopped in to sample a flight of brews. We tried:
Nice and Bright Gose (Palmetto Brewing Company, South Carolina)
Mama's Little Yella Pilsner (Oskars Blues Brewery, Colorado)
Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout (Terrapin Beer Co., Georgia)
Watermelon Dragonfuit Burst (Wicked Weed Brewing, North Carolina). Yes this is a sparkling one!

My favorite was the milk stout. I am really developing a taste for those chocolately, coffee like brews.

The pilsner was not for us but we did really enjoy all the others.
I also ordered a Gluten Sensitive pizza with mushrooms and spinach. I tend to order gluten free when available since my tummy has trouble breaking down white breads. This was actually the best gluten free pizza I have had in a restaurant. Impressive and delicious!
Considering how crowded the restaurant was, it must see a lot of regulars. It is a great place to grab some beer and pizza, a perfect combo.

If you go, located at:
802 Gervais Street
Columbia, SC 29201

Sunday to Thursday 11am - 1am
Friday to Saturday 11am - 2am

  2. Beer and pizza - maybe that's even more American than apple pie.
