There’s no better meal than pizza and beer. That’s just a fact of life like gravity or Lindsay Lohan’s insobriety. Apparently, a couple in Illinois loved the combination so much they decided to brew a beer that tastes like pizza.
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. Keg it or bottle it.
I’m having a hard time imaging that pizza beer, in any way, tastes any good. Then again, I’d be prepared to stand corrected. [via coolmaterial]
