Default Pizza and Beer

I'm sitting here on an ugly Sunday night, enjoying my traditional 'Sunday Night Pizza and Beer.'

I'm enjoying both a Hawaiian Style Pizza, and Pepperoni and Bacon, with a nice glass of O'Fallons 5 Day IPA.

There are few things in this world better than Pizza and Beer. What style of beer do you typically find to be the best to pair with pizza?

Well, styles of pizza vary almost as much a beer. You have spicy pizza, fruity pizza, meaty pizza, veggie, garlicky, white sauce, red sauce, cheesy, ect.
Hmmmm...I would say most IPAs go good with pizza

For me it is a nice malty lager.

I put together a lager a couple years ago that turned out bready and yeasty just like pizza crust, it was awesome. It's on my list to brew again when I get started with my lagers next month.

I hit up Piece yesterday and threw down a white pizza with anchovies paired with their Kolsch. Pretty darn good combo.

I am personally partial to a nice Chicago deep dish paired with a nice mild. The roasty, bready flavor of the beer pairs with the crust while the lightness of the mild cut the heaviness of the pizza.

I had that very thing tonight. We had a 5 meat pizza and I had one bottle of Full Sail Wassail and followed that up with a bottle of New Belgium Trippel.

I'd pretty much say IPA to most food, especially chicken dishes, not quite sure why. Had some Lagunitas Imperial Red with sausage pizza tonight.
