Pizza Beer: Slices and Suds, Together at Last!
When it comes to strange foods and drinks, I’m easily intrigued (have you tried our peanut butter cheeseburger yet?!). But here’s one that might be a little too bizarre for me: Pizza Beer. Granted, beer and pizza are both wonderful creations that I enjoy on a regular basis, but a beer that tastess like pizza…?
My first reaction to seeing this was that some mysterious cocktail of chemical pizza flavorings must be added to this brew, but I was wrong. In fact, a real Margarita pizza is one of the ingredients. Here’s some details about the brewing process from Mamma Mia Pizza Beer’s website:
“The Margarita pizza is put into the mash & steeped like a tea bag. A whole wheat crust made with water, flour & yeast is topped with tomato, oregano, basil & garlic. The essence of the pizza spices is washed off with hot water and filtered into a brewpot, where it is boiled for a long, long time. During the process, we add hops & spices in a cheesecloth type bag & filter the cooled liquid into a fermentation vessel. (big glass 6 gallon water jug). After a week or two, the beer is good to go.”
