A Guide to Perfect Beer and Pizza Pairings

Caitlin Schneider

There’s probably nothing in the entire world better than a hot slice of fresh pizza—except maybe a cold beer to go along with it.

Chicago-based Home Run Inn teamed up with a group of Cicerone-certified experts from Bottleneck Restaurant Group to create the “Ultimate Pizza & Beer Pairing Guide.” It’s a thorough visual guide to the best in brews and pies, featuring 30 different duos, along with a handy explanation for each match.

From classic cheese with an American pale ale to BBQ chicken pizza with a Vienna lager, the winningness of these combinations really comes down to personal taste. However, with that said, we would happily eat and imbibe each and every one. (Though maybe not you, anchovy.)

If testing out alcohol and food pairings is your idea of a good time, you might also want to check out this wine and Girl Scout Cookie guide, this beer and ice cream guide, and this beer and everything guide.
