Two Guys Pizza is moving!

TWO GUYS PIZZA 

will have a new location!

316 - 11 street south - Lethbridge, Alberta

POSSIBLE OPENING DATE: January, 2013

After many years of wondering how to expand or improve our business, I am excited to announce that we will be moving into a new building!

BIGGER
BETTER
FASTER
... and WITH BEER!

That's right - the new building will have the addition of dine-in seating! It will also feature an overhead door with some patio seating! 
We will also improve our efficiencies with delivery and take-out orders with a much bigger kitchen, and all new equipment!

FOR PEOPLE WITH GOOD TASTE!

-fine pizza and food
-Canadian Craft beer
-an ever-changing wine list

What is "craft" beer?

That's a hard question these days, but here are a few guidelines for the beers we may carry - 

-Craft beer is that which is brewed with a goal of "aesthetic character."
-Craft breweries are "small, independent, and / or traditional"
-A microbrewery is a brewery which produces a limited amount of beer.  
-Not the "big boys" of the Beer Industry!  



How are renovations going?

This building has been around since before 1930! It has housed a coal company, Lethbridge Motors Ltd (I think??), Trimble Tire, Ultraviolet Eyewear, and Action Conditioning. This renovation is the biggest it has seen ever! We have completely started from scratch, while trying to maintain some of its historic facade.
