Beer and Food Pix: Beer and Pizza

So I decided to start doing a piece where I talk about pairing beer with food. After giving it a lot of thought I realized people really don't want to read they just want to see it. That and my usage of the English language is close to caveman grunts compared to other beer blogs out there so it would be easier for me to explain it visually. So I came up with a cool little thing I'm calling Beer & Food Pix(Awesome name huh? I really put a lot of thought into it!) in which I take a picture of the food I'm eating and the beer I paired it with. Pretty simple.

Ok, for my first installment of Beer & Food Pix I picked a real easy one. Beer and Pizza. Nothing goes better with pizza than a great beer. This is a standard pepperoni pizza from Rocky's Pizzaria in New Orleans paired with an Abita Amber. Enough said, right? Yeah, yeah I know, you guys want to see fancy food paired with fancy beer. Hold on to your lederhosen I'll get there!

What are those? Chips or corn flakes? And that's a beer I have yet to try.

Oh man, I LOVE LOVE LOVE pizza and beer. My friend does a food-themed Columbus podcast and invited me on as his guest a few times (as the beverage guru). One time we talked about pairing pizza with both beer and wine.

For the most part, I don't think you can wrongly pair a style of beer with any type of pizza.

HOWEVER, I did make mention the the ingredients should often dictate, or at least suggest, what styles of beer & wine should compliment it best.

Cannot wait to see more pictures!!! GREAT IDEA!
