Jigsy’s Old Forge Pizza in Enola is brewing up a big addition.
The pizza shop, known for its Old Forge style pizza and one of seven stops on the Pennlive Pizza Party tour, will begin brewing beer at its restaurant at 225 N. Enola Road in East Pennsboro Twp.
Owners Migsy and Robin Ardoline have acquired a brewing license and are in the process of building a small brewery in the restaurant’s basement. It should be completed before Thanksgiving.
Jigsy’s will brew small batches of craft beer – about 15 gallons per batch – which will be sold on draft and in growlers. There is also the potential for other bars and restaurants to carry the beers, Migsy Ardoline said.
In addition, diners will be able to sip wine with their pizza. A brewing license permits restaurants to serve Pennsylvania wines, something the Ardolines are excited to carry.
