The best pizza and beer pairings to indulge on this weekend (25 Photos)
If you had to pick two things you couldn’t live without, pizza and beer would probably be pretty big contenders, am I right? They’re great separate, they’re better together, and they’re the best when they match up with each other like two peas in a pod. Make the most of your indulgent experience with these pairings, cultivated by
Home Run Inn Pizza in Chicago.
Sausage and peppers and lager
The caramel notes pair well with the sausage but the beer’s still clean enough to let the veggies shine.
Pepperoni and American brown ale
The spicy notes of the pepperoni go nicely with a malty beer, especially one with a light caramel sweetness.
Thai chicken and pilsner
The clean crisp flavor will give a nice floral hop finish.
Seafood and Berliner weiss
The super tart acidity and heavy lemon accents of the beer put a nice finish on the seafood.
BBQ chicken and Vienna lager
The toasty malts and mild hop notes blend well with the spiciness of the chicken and BBQ sauce.
Meat lovers and dark smoked beer
The various meats get a more authentic smoky backbone with the dark smoked beer.
Everything pizza and maibock
It’s clean and low on hops, but it’s also got its own strength to stand up next to all the toppings.
Original margherita and unfiltered lager
The crisp, clean flavors call for an unfiltered lager to complement the charred crust and let its sweet sauce stand out.
Vegetarian and summer köslch
This kind of beer plays well with the delicate veggies.
Five cheese and witbier
The high carbonation will cut through the extra creaminess.
Anchovy and citrusy pale ale
Something refreshing is needed after the intense bites of the anchovies. The citrusy pale ale is the perfect touch.
Bacon cheeseburger and wheat beer
It’s got citrus and a spicy kick, but it’s still light enough for the bacon cheeseburger pizza.
Pesto chicken and trappist dubbed ale
The dense apricot aromatics will cut through the chicken and the dry finish of the basil and pesto.
Classic cheese and American pale ale
American pale ales have just enough bitterness to cut through the cheese.
Mushroom and English ale
The meaty and earthy flavors of the mushroom needs the earthy hop profiles as well as the sweetness to brighten up the taste.
Bacon tomato ranch and golden blonde ale
Pair this pizza with the golden blonde ale for a hint of local honey, bready malts and citrus hop flavors.
Chicken alfredo and farmhouse ale
The juicy fruit nose and dry hopping will cleanse your palate while also drying the chicken, portabello and spinach.
Chicago supreme deep dish and American strong ale
The hops will elevate the pepperoni and green peppers and the malt will stand up to the sauce and cheese.
Hawaiian and golden ale
A light bodied golden ale with its citrus hop accentuates the Canadian bacon and pineapple.
Buffalo chicken and American IPA
The mild fruit blend pairs well with the buffalo sauce.
