Mitten Brewing Co.’s New Pizza Restaurant Opens in Rockford This Week
Looking for a new spot to grab a slice? The founders of The Mitten Brewing Co. are opening their new pizza restaurant in Rockford this week.
Over the summer we told you about Mitten Brewing Co.'s plans to bring their artisan pizzas to Cannon Township. Mitten Pizza Co. is now open for carryout at 6051 Belding Rd NE in Rockford.
The owners shared on Facebook that after a "very busy" friends and family soft opening last week, this week is their public soft opening.
Mitten Pizza Co.'s hours this week are:
The new eatery is serving appetizers like cheesy bread and "The Big Show" which is a 12-inch oven baked hot pretzel, served with three sauces.
Specialty pizza offerings include "The Westerdog", with chili bean sauce, all-beef franks and toppings; and "Hog Heaven" with chipotle BBQ sauce and smoked pulled pork. You can check out the full menu here.
It sounds like Mitten Pizza Co. has been super busy so far and they're looking to hire more people. If you're interested in working at Mitten Pizza Co., you can apply here.
Founders Chris Andrus and Max Trierweiler opened the original The Mitten Brewing Co. at 527 Leonard St. in Grand Rapids in 2012.
Since then, they've expanded to include locations in Saugatuck and Northport. A baseball-themed microbrewery and pizzeria that focuses on community involvement and charitable giving, last year Mitten Brewing Co. teamed up with Trail Point brewing to launch "Things We Don't Say IPA", with proceeds from the new beer helping to fund no-cost mental health services for all Mitten employees.
