Out and About

A big thanks to Colby for snapping these great shots the other night. Nice to see so many friendly faces out and about, enjoying time together.

Sharing is fun!

Beautiful baby sister even got in the action! This cutie knows how to bridge for your truck, no worries! Car seat works great!

The view is better from up here, guys!

How adorable are these two?

Show Me Your Favorite PBTS Pics!

As some of you may know, the female half of the PBTS team (me) is still living in Indiana while our kids finish the school year. The male half of the team sometimes, ahem, forgets to take pictures of all the fun going on at the restaurant. So I am enlisting your help, dear blog friends.

I need pictures of good times at PBTS-- birthdays, family celebrations, your cute kids doing what they do when they eat and play at PBTS. You can email the pics and a short description of the occasion at

These can be old pictures or new pictures. If you do send them to me, they most likely will be posted on the blog or FB (first names only, of course.)

Thanks so much! I appreciate your help. Even after I relocate in Florida, your photos of special moments at our restaurant will always be welcome! I am looking forward to the end of June when I can see all of your faces in person!

Happy Tuesday! (It is rainy and 36 degrees here today, so that sunny Fla. weather is calling my name!)

Hello Everyone! Just wanted to say thank you to everyone for making our first week at Pizza by the Sea so enjoyable! We would like to thank Bryan and Stacy for making the transition go so smoothly and for being super to work with during this process. Also, we would like to thank our employees! We absolutely have the best crew around, and we so much appreciate them and the hard work that they do. Finally, we would like thank all of our customers! It has been a busy week for us, meeting locals and also visitors to the area, so thank you for being patient with us! We can't wait to get to know you better!

Welcome our new owners!

A Note from The Pritchett Family...

Hello Friends,

We hope you know by now how very much we appreciate you. When we opened Pizza by the Sea almost four years ago, you helped us build a business of which we are extremely proud. We have won awards and even had celebrities visit us, but our overwhelming accomplishment has been the friendships we've made with all of you. The kindness and support you've shown us will forever be in our hearts.

It is time to turn over our business to one of the nicest families we know. The Beer family is relocating to our area from Indiana and has been vacationing here for years. They've also been huge fans of Pizza by the Sea! We are excited for you to meet them, and they were kind enough to tell us a little about their family so you can get to know them {see below}.

Please give Jason, Kristi, Alex and Caroline Beer a warm welcome to our area and Pizza by the Sea. You'll still see our faces around the pizza place for a while so we can ensure a smooth transition occurs. We also look forward to seeing you around town and at our new business, Duckies Shop of Fun.

Last but not least, thank you to our faithful and hard-working employees, without whom Pizza by the Sea would not have the "heart" of the place we've all come to know and love. They helped us build our business from scratch and we're proud to say some of them have worked with us since the beginning. These speical folks have become family to us and we will miss them terribly, but look forward to seeing all they'll accomplish with the Beer Family. Thanks also to everyone who has been a part of Pizza by the Sea from photographers to contractors and especially our littlest fans who have helped us become a place where kids can be kids.

With sincere appreciation for everything,

The Pritchett Family

We are excited to introduce The Beer Family...

{In Kristi's words} Jason and I both grew up in Indiana, met at Purdue University, married, then moved to Dallas, Texas where Jason pursued a graduate degree at SMU and I was an English teacher at Highland Park Middle School. After living in Texas for six years and the birth of our first child, Alex, we decided to move back to Indiana to be closer to family. Jason started his own business, investing in and managing various small businesses and real estate, while I was primarily a stay-at-home mom to Alex and our daughter, Caroline, and school and church volunteer. After living for almost a decade in the beautiful lakes area of northern Indiana, it still was our dream to own a business near the beach in which we both could use our talents. After praying and talking about it for many months, we decided to take the plunge!

We have been visiting the 30A area for many years as tourists, and we thought it would be a wonderful place to raise our family and own a business together. We are so excited to be the new owners of Pizza by the Sea and will strive to carry on Bryan and Stacy's tradition of providing customers with great pizza, superb customer service, and a fun, family-friendly atmosphere.

The Beer family looks forward to meeting your family and becoming a part of the SoWal community! Here are a few fun facts so you can get to know us better:
  • Jason: loves golfing, slow cruises around the lake in the boat, 80's music, and traveling (We applied to be on “The Amazing Race” but didn't get chosen.)
  • Kristi: loves writing, blogging, reading, cooking (I'm Italian!), taking walks, and watching Survivor
  • Alex: our energetic 9 year old boy who loves doing anything outdoors, especially golfing and sailing, doing science experiments, and playing anything electronic. He also loves playing jazz tunes on the keyboard.
  • Caroline: our spunky 6 year old daughter who loves dancing, singing, the colors orange and pink, golfing with her dad, and stuffed animals
