Pizza and Beer of Richmond (Hanover): Vegan Restaurant Review

After a long day of work for me on a Saturday, and with nothing to cook that made the omnivores in my life happy, we decided to venture out for dinner. My daughter had a craving for Mexican food, but I had another idea. I’d heard from vegan and non-vegan friends that PBR Richmond is awesome! And since they opened a second location in Hanover, we had to try. (I ran past the original Richmond location on my run the next day!)

PBR is a part of EAT restaurant partners in Richmond, who are also the culinary geniuses behind Boulevard Burger & Brew, another family favorite. 

PBR Hanover was packed that night! I think there was a large party on the patio, and this was the majority of the diners that night. It was only a 15-30 minute wait for the table, but we ended up eating at the bar. Service at the bar was speedy!

We each ordered a pizza. I got the Farmer’s Market, their version of a veggie pizza, which had tomato sauce, fresh tomatoes, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, and olives, topped with fresh arugula. I subbed vegan cheese, as you may have guessed. 

It was pretty tasty! I enjoyed the crust and the sauce especially. My pie was a bit delayed, however, as our server noticed that they put parmesan cheese on my pizza, even though it was specifically ordered vegan. I’m grateful that he caught the error!

For my vegan and/or gluten-free friends, note that PBR does not charge extra for making your pizza with vegan cheese or a gluten-free crust! Other restaurants routinely upcharge for these options. 

I liked that the location has garage doors, which were open that night, so we got to enjoy some fresh air with the comforts of indoor dining. 

I will go back to PBR. The pizza was tasty, the service was great, they have a good adult beverage selection, and they don’t charge extra to make your food vegan! I’m also really grateful that there is a location that’s in my county! 

Sometimes it’s just nice to go out and have a fantastic pizza and a beer, you know? 


If you live in the Richmond area, have you tried PBR? What did you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

As always, I hope you all are safe and healthy.
