Have You Tried Pairing Your Beer with Pizza?

 

After a long day of hitting the slopes, what do we all think of first? Beer. Next? Pizza. So what we’ve decided to do at the Olde Schoolhouse Café and Saloon, is to help you pair your beer with your pizza – in case you wanted that great craft beer touch with some of our delicious pizzas and you didn’t know where to start.

First up – Cheese:

Cheese pizza is simple – greasy, but simple. You’ll want to find a beer that helps you cut through the cheese but doesn’t take away from the flavor. An ESB/Pale Ale beer is the perfect compliment to this classic. It will add to the cheese flavor without taking away the fundamental cheese flavors. If you’re not a fan of Pale Ales, then you can try the hoppy flavors of amber ales to help you cut through the tomatoes and bread flavors.

Pepperoni:

Pepperoni pizza has spicy, smoky flavors all rolled up into one. The best bet for this kind of pizza? An IPA. India Pale Ales are strong and bitter helping your palate pull out all of these three elements of a pizza easily. The IPA also cuts through the heavy meats that are featured on a pepperoni pizza.

 

Hawaiian:

An island-inspired pizza, the Hawaiian mixes the sweetness of pineapple and the saltiness of Canadian bacon. There are mixed recommendations here – depending on what you’d like to taste. Typically, brown ales and lagers will help compliment sweetness and contrast saltiness with their malty, caramel undertones. However, if you’d like to keep the island theme going, then try pairing this pizza with blonde ales. Blonde ales have bitterness in their hops and can help anchor the two contrasting flavors very well.

 

Pairing your beer with pizza can be a great way to experience new and different ways to enjoy your favorite American food. At The Olde Schoolhouse Cafe and Saloon, we take our pizza and beer seriously. When the snow starts flying, our pies start cooking - so stop by and enjoy a nice cold pint of beer with one of our many delicious, handmade pizzas.
