Cushnoc

Pizza in Augusta

Pizzas and craft beers make a winning combination at this handsomely designed new space on Water St. Wood-fired pizzas come topped with delicious ingredients such as IPA carmelized onions, shaved brussels sprouts or crispy pancetta. The 10 beers on draft (six from Cushnoc's own microbrewery) offer some nice variety, from the refreshing (Water Street Wit) to the full-bodied (All Souls).

A copper-covered bar, Edison light bulbs and exposed ductwork create an atmosphere that's pure industrial chic, though tables in the back also have views over the river.
