Washing Down The Best Pizza In Bloomington
A complete meal is not complete without the perfect complementary beverage to wash it down! At Bucceto’s, we and our owner Paul Heilbrunn strive to create only the best pizza in Bloomington, and we serve up the best brews to wash it down. Pizza and beer is a classic pairing, and if you’ve never tasted what the perfect beer can do to the best pizza in Bloomington, we have some suggestions we can’t wait for you to try:
- Classic cheese pizza and Upland Wheat Ale – Basic is a good place to start, and many think that a plain classic cheese pizza can be paired with any brew. While this is true to an extent, you can really risk overshadowing the delicate flavors of the pizza if you choose a beer that is too bold or robust. If you’re just starting out with pairing our best pizza in Bloomington with beer, we suggest starting simple with our classic cheese and an Upland Wheat Ale. The Upland Wheat Ale is flavorful enough to really get the complement of the beer, but you’ll still have all the fresh flavors of our best pizza in Bloomington shining first.
- Pepperoni and Upland Dragonfly IPA – After starting with the classic cheese pizza, it’s time to move up a little bit with our best pizza in Bloomington and step into our pepperoni pie. Pepperoni pizza is the classic choice for a topped pizza, and you’ll get a whole different pairing experience than you would with the cheese. Pepperoni is a bit greasy, a bit spicy, and a bit salty, so you’ll want a brew that accents all of these flavors while not losing sight of the cheese. Upland Dragonfly IPA has a more aggressive hoppy flavor that brings out the spice of the pepperoni beautifully, while the higher alcohol content will cut right through the grease for a clean finish.
- Sweet Lil Razorback and Guinness – You’ve gone basic, you’ve stepped up, and now it’s time to try more complex pairings. Our Smiling Teeth pizzas can be paired beautifully with a vast array of brews thanks to their own complex flavor profiles, but one we really love is pairing the Sweet Lil Razorback with a Guinness Stout. Guinness incorporates 4 out of the 5 tastes senses, it’s a little sweet, a little sour, a little savory, and a touch bitter, but what it’s missing is a salt note. The Sweet Lil Razorback features salty and smoky tastes of bacon, pepperoni, and sausage, creating a perfectly balanced experience.
