Nothing goes better together than good ol' beer and pizza! Every Thursday we serve up huge Sicilian slices ($3.50 each, 2/$6) from Sillari's Pizza in Malden alongside a limited cask beer release.
Cask ale is a traditional British style of serving beer; beer is drawn out of the keg by hand and served at a slightly different carbonation level and temperature than normal draft beer to bring out new flavors and aromas.
This week, we're pouring:
Beer Name: Wasted Life (Dry Hopped w/Exp. Stonefruit)
Style: India Pale Ale
There's not much new to say about IPAs since there are five thousand or so other commercial examples out there, but it is a style that's a personal favorite of ours - we tend to prefer hops with the big, fruity, juicy flavors that are all the rage with the young'uns these days. But since this is our mainstay year-round IPA (don't worry, hopheads, we'll have plenty more variations on the style once we're rolling) we've tried to balance that out a bit (for everyday drinkin' we tend to prefer something that doesn't necessarily smell like a fruit salad with perfume on it) with some malty goodness and a dab or two of some slightly-more-nuanced hop varieties (don't get me wrong, we're all about intense flavor. But you wouldn't want an all-syrup Squishee every day, would you?). Needless to say, this is one you'll miss in between pours.
As an extra special treat, we dry hopped this bad boy with a totally new-to-us experimental hop variety - Stonefruit!
