The Books
  • Books and Brews originally opened as a used bookstore and coffee shop in Hurricane, West Virginia.
  • The second location opened as a full-service restaurant in Charleston, West Virginia, with books lining the shelves that seamlessly blend into our dining area.
  • Books are purchased from estate sales or donated by customers and are sold for about 80% off retail value, making books under 1% of our sales.
  • Our menu pays homage to our love for books with literary themed items, like our rueben sandwich, the “Catcher in the Rye”, and our margherita pizza, “The Great Gatsby”.
  • Books and Brews donates books or holds book drives to benefit local schools.
The Brews
  • We offer a variety of beer, both domestic and craft, from local and worldwide breweries.
  • We have a rotation of 12 beers on tap in addition to bottles and cans.
  • We also offer cider, sangria, and wine by the can.
  • West Virginia breweries include: Big Timber, Bridge Brew Works, FreeFolk, Greenbrier Valley, HighGround, Short Story, Stumptown Ales, Weathered Ground, Bad Shepherd Brewing

Best Dish and Awards

Our take on a dish that originated in West Virginia, pepperoni rolls, are not only a house favorite, but the city’s favorite. Our Pepperoni Rolls won the People’s Choice Favorite Dish in Charleston in 2019. This mouthwatering dish also received recognition in Taste of the South Magazine and won People’s Choice Pepperoni Roll at the Charleston Rolls on the River event. Books and Brews won the Rookie of the Year award at the 2019 Charleston Main Streets Urbanite Awards.
