Lewisburg Edition: Hill and Holler

HH5I have a hard time choosing between the coolest small towns in West Virginia. There's Davis/Thomas, Fayetteville, Shepherdstown, Elkins and Lewisburg. I really love each of them, so I was super happy to get the chance to head to one - Lewisburg - recently for some cider scouting.

HH1
Before cider, I stopped at Hill and Holler first for some lunch. Hill and Holler brings two loves together: pizza and bikes. Add in some live music, and you have a haven for every Appalachian hipster. Read: Me.

HH7Located on North Jefferson Street, it's right along the main drag in Lewisburg and is housed in this log cabin-esque building.

HH4
Inside, it's beautiful. Large windows allow in tons of light; there are a few loungey areas and TVs. Lots of wood accents and exposed beans and duct work. I'm a fan; it's quite lovely.

HH3This bike repair/rental shop-turned-restaurant features local ingredients on their "Neapolitan" pizzas. The dough proofs for three days before cooking in the wood-fired oven, which reaches up to 850 degrees and cooks the pizza within two minutes.

HH2I walked in and up to the counter to look over the menu. It wasn't busy, so I took a minute to figure out which pizza looked best. Once I saw The Forager, I couldn't get past it: pancetta, roasted garlic, wild mushrooms and fresh herbs. Mmm.

HH6This was very good. Very savory, very umami. I almost wish there was just a touch of something sweet to balance it out - maybe a balsamic or cranberry or something. But, it had a nice browned crust, bubbly cheese and delicious mushrooms and crunchy pancetta. What a perfect combo.

Such a cool place to grab a drink, grab a pie and rent a bike for a ride. Will definitely be back.
