Pete’s Pizza & Tap House


Looking to get out of town for a quick day trip? Even though it’s September, we’re all still looking for ways to beat the Sacramento heat, so take a day trip up to the Sierra foothills to Grass Valley, one of the area’s most famous Gold Rush towns.

While you’re there, check out Pete’s Pizza & Tap House for some handmade, stone-baked pizzas and a great local brew collection, featuring ol’ Republic Brewery, Loomis Basin, Knee Deep and more. Their motto –“That’s how we roll!” – is very fitting for their eclectic and fresh ingredient menu, friendly and down-to-earth staff, and casual and welcoming environment.

From wings and subs to calzones and pizza by the pie or slice, there’s something on the menu for everyone. We tried the Yuba (Oh, Yeah!), with garlic and olive oil, bacon, pepperoni, pineapple, and jalapeño-topped cheddar cheese. (When I say “we” I mean I only had a bite; as you know, jalapeños scare me!). My favorite was the summer Peach Pizza special, topped with mozzarella cheese, thinly-sliced and locally-grown peaches, bacon, bleu cheese crumbles, fresh arugula, and balsamic reduction.

While you’re there, be sure to say Hi to owners Aaron and Lorri. If they’re in, they will most likely be pouring beers or helping in the kitchen but will welcome the shout out. And ask what their favorites are, because they’ll make some recommendations and guide you to what’s good and fresh that day. Enjoy!
