What Beer with that Pizza?
« on: January 28, 2006, 03:38:56 PM »
Ok I really don't drink acohol that much. So the old saying goes Beer and Pizza! Pizza and Ice Cold BEER!

So what does everyone drink when they eat pizza?

For me, I like sweet tea, or coke.
But occassionally I get the wife to fetch me a beer!  Ouch Just got wacked! didn't know she was
right be hind me!  :-D

For beer I'm a water'd down kind of guy, so I have to say michelobe lite.

My typical drink with pizza is Miller Lite.

But I also like Sam Adam's, Killian's, etc.  I would love a big old mug of Wench Water from Dragonmead Brewery here in the Detroit area.  Wow, now I'm thirsty!

Whenever I have Italian, especially pizza I enjoy a nice cold Cherry Coke. Sometimes a freshly made green ice tea with honey. If I'm making Thai food, I like to have a "Thai Ice Tea". This is simply sweetened ice tea with heavy cream added. It cuts some of the spiciness of the cuisine. It's a little too heavy to go with pizza. Generally, something that is acidic and sugary goes well with most pizza styles. Hot drinks such as tea tend not to go too well with pizza.

'just my personal preference... :)

Friday or Sat. night it's beer, but hey, everything goes well with a slice...

Pepsi, Coke, Dr.Pepper, Sprite, iced tea, etc etc etc.

Ice cold Coke, but sometimes Cherry Coke hits the spot.

Depends. 

I usually like hoppy pale ales or crisp pilseners with pizza.   Too often, I am at the mercy of the taps at the pizza restaurant where I'm eating.

There's a GREAT pizza restaurant in DC, Pizzeria Paradiso, that sells Belgian beers with pizza.  A good Chimay or Duvel goes great with pizza
Since joining this forum, I've begun using words like "autolyze" and have become anal about baker's percents.  My dough is forever changed.

I'd second the Belgium beer recommendation, some of the best in the world comes from this small country with over 350 breweries. If you have a Trader Joe's near you try the NY Belgium-style beer, Ommegang, that they stock. It's about half the price of Chimay and tastes great.

I also like any hoppy pale ale style beer (e.g., Sierra Nevada) or a pilsner with pizza. Lately I've been drinking a German pils called Warsteiner.  Of course, good pizza will compensate for bad beer -- well, maybe partially compensate!

No question...Black Hook.  Red Hook Brewery.  Seattle area.  And if you visit the brewery, snag a big bottle of Black Hook XX.
