BRENTWOOD — The guys at Pinthouse Pizza teased Facebook fans today with details about the in-house beers at the new Burnet Road brewpub: "The Pinthouse Pizza brewing style is a hop-forward, American-fusion style that emphasizes the flavor and aroma of the beloved hop flower without the traditional bitterness associated with hoppy beers."
