There is no denying that pizza and beer go together. The only thing that could make this beloved combo better is to expertly pair our St. James Taproom’s wood-fired pizza with a pint of our craft beer. With all the pizza and pint possibilities we offer, deciding what to order can be quite the challenge! That is why we consulted with Public House Brewing Company co-founder, Josh Stacy, to create a guide to help you pair the best brew with the perfect pie:
Margherita and Rod’s Cream Ale
Ingredients: Tomato Sauce, garlic oil, fresh mozzarella, basil
This pizza’s crisp, clean flavors call for a brighter beer like Rod’s that doesn’t overpower the fresh, subtle flavors of the mozzarella.
Three Cheese and Hide and Seek Hefeweizen or Provision Farmhouse Ale
Ingredients: Tomato Sauce, garlic oil, fresh mozzarella, parmesan, provolone
Both of these choice beers offer slightly citrusy hops that will help accentuate the aromatic cheeses.
Ozark Forest Mushroom and Frisco 1501 Amber Lager or Flynn’s Irish Red
Ingredients: Blend of locally grown and harvested mushrooms, garlic oil, parmesan, arugula
The toasty, caramel flavors in these brews add a taste of sweetness to this addictive, earthy pie.
Italian Meat Lovers and Elusive IPA
Ingredients: Pepperoni, ground beef and Italian sausage, tomato sauce, garlic oil, provolone
The smooth, refreshing hops in our Elusive perfectly balances the saltiness of these meats.
Pepperoni and Elusive IPA or Dry Fly IPA
Ingredients: Tomato sauce, pepperoni, provolone
The bright touch of hops in both of these drinkable IPA’s highlight the spice of the pepperoni.
Veggie and Rod’s Cream Ale or Dry Fly IPA
Ingredients: Tomato sauce, bell peppers, red onions, Kalamata olives, green onions, provolone
With both of these well balanced brews, the delicate taste of the fresh vegetables used to make this pizza are more flavorful.
Supreme and Soest Road Circa 1995 Belgian Style Dubbel
Ingredients: Tomato sauce, olives, red onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, pepperoni, Italian sausage, provolone
The maltiness of our Soest harmonizes well with the vast array of meats and vegetables on this customer favorite pizza.
