This Saturday, September 7th, is National Beer Lover’s Day, an annual celebration to enjoy the delicious beverage! One of the best food and drink combinations is pizza and beer, as the cheesy dough combined with the refreshing flavor of a cold beer is a match made in heaven! However, every pizza has one particular type of beer that it accompanies best. Continue reading for our guide of what beers to drink with your Box Hill pizza.
Pepperoni pizza is one of the most popular toppings in the U.S, as the meat adds the perfect amount of spice to any cheesy pie! The slight spice of pepperoni is paired best with a light malty beer like Stella Artois. The beer has some bitterness and a crisp finish, creating a delicious combination.
A meat lovers pizza is truly for those who love meat, as it is piled high will all of your favorite types of meat, from sausage to pepperoni. Since the pizza is so heavy on the meat, a tart beer with some spices is a great choice to help cut the fattiness. A Belgian Witbier, such as Hoegaarden, is an excellent pairing, as it is made with coriander and orange peel that will accentuate the sweetness and spiciness of the meat. Other Witbiers such as Blue Moon and Allagash White also pair well with the pizza.
Hawaiin pizza is by far the most polarizing type of pizza, as people have very strong opinions about the combination of pineapple and ham. At Box Hill, we don’t have Hawaiin pizza on the menu, but we have Pineapple pizza and Imported Ham pizza that you can customize to create the Hawaiin style. Whether you love it or hate it, the combination of tangy, sweet pineapple and salty ham makes an interesting flavor that works best with a hoppy IPA. A West Coast Style IPA like Blue Point Mosaic Session has fruity notes with a hint of bitterness that cuts the saltiness of the ham. This beer and pizza combo will have you feeling like you’re on a tropical vacation!
