Fans of the holy union of beer and pizza are soon going to have one more option: ALTO Pizza Kitchen + Bar celebrates the grand opening of its brick and mortar the same day it launches a food kiosk in Braxton Brewing Company's Covington taproom. (ALTO officially opened its restaurant doors on June 26.)
ALTO is the first tenant in Covington’s $19 million Duveneck Square development, bringing pizza, pasta, sandwiches and more than 30 wines and craft beer and cocktails to the downtown area.
Doubling down on its grand opening, it will celebrate at both the restaurant (43 W. Seventh St.) and its Braxton kiosk (27 W. Seventh St.) starting at 11 a.m. July 7. The first 100 guests to purchase a pie at ALTO itself on Saturday will get one free pizza per week for an entire year.
“Since opening the brewery’s doors three years ago we’ve consistently heard one thing — we wish you had food,” said Jake Rouse, Braxton Brewing Company's co-founder and CEO, in a press release. “We’re thrilled to announce a partnership with ALTO that brings incredibly flavorful pizza, pasta and sandwiches to our customers in downtown Covington.”
The brewery's kiosk menu will feature ALTO's complete lineup of food, which currently boasts items like brisket pasta (penne, brisket, barbecue sauce, caramelized onions, smoked gouda and mozzarella), a charcuterie pizza (pepperoni, salami and mortadella on a tomato sauce pizza with multiple cheeses), a roasted portabello mushroom sandwich and extras like cannoli and Charleston crab dip. Order and complete your transaction at the brewery kiosk, and then ALTO will prepare and deliver it to you.
Good news for dog owners: The brewery will remain dog friendly (some destinations have to kick out the dogs if they welcome in food) and is open to other food options as well.
