How to Pair Beer With Pizza October 9, 2019

Shelby, La Crosse County
How to Pair Beer With Pizza, Shelby, Wisconsin

It’s hard to imagine pizza without a pint of ice-cold beer to wash it down. When paired correctly, the food and drink bring out the flavors in one another, making for a delicious and satisfying meal. Below is a helpful guide on which styles of beer to order with different types of pies.

4 Delectable Pizza & Beer Pairings

1. Pepperoni & Brown Ale

Pepperoni has a wonderful spiciness that contrasts well with the caramel notes of American brown ale. The cheese topping will only taste creamier and more luxurious with the malty texture of brown ale. As an alternative, try a crisp European lager with pepperoni pizza.

pizza2. Vegetarian & Kolsch

If you prefer peppers, onions, olives, and mushrooms on top, you’ll want a beer that won’t overpower the delicate flavors of the veggies. Summer Kolsch has a lightness and brightness that harmonizes with vegetarian pies and allows their garden-fresh flavors to shine.

3. Hawaiian & Golden Ale

Hawaiian pizzas feature Canadian bacon and pineapple, so you’ll want a beer that brings out these tasty toppings. Golden ales have a hoppy yet citrusy character that is light enough to showcase the sweetness and saltiness of the toppings.

4. Cheese & Wheat Beer

This classic style typically includes a combination of mozzarella, Asiago, Parmesan, Romano, and aged cheddar cheeses. Wheat beer helps to balance some of the creaminess with its subtle spiciness. If you want something a bit different, American pale ale makes this doughy dish more interesting by adding a hint of bitterness.
