Thrillist is a leading men’s digital lifestyle brand, “providing all that’s new, unknown or under-appreciated in food, drink, entertainment, nightlife, gadgets, and gear in the U.S. and the U.K. Find the best spots to eat, drink and shop at some of the hippest stores across America. Explore the newest and best the Nation is hiding.”

As this is Thrillist’s second year naming America’s 33 best, two of the website’s editors compiled a list that includes the “greatest examples of our myriad regional styles, as well as the best overall pies in the country. So pull up a chair, put a napkin in your shirt, and enjoy this mozzarella, brick, Provel, and goat-covered slice of America’s 33 best pizzas.”

Here is how Thrillist describes Post Office Pies: “Wedged between a BBQ joint and an excellent new brewery (both spots’ owners are involved in the pie shop, too), Post Office Pies is part of a giant, calorie-laden reinvigoration of a long-desolate Birmingham nabe. Maybe if all city restorations were lucky enough to be filled with this good of beer and surrounded by such a porky smell of smoke, all of America would be wallowing in the wood-fired pizzas of a chef who trained at legendary Manhattan restaurants Per Se and Gramercy Tavern. But, for now, the rest of the country has to be jealous of Birmingham and its access to the Swine Pie — laden with thick slabs of pepperoni, savory sausage, and bacon, buried beneath cheese and topped with fresh basil — which pairs oh so well with Avondale Brewing Co’s Battlefield IPA.”
