Topper's Pizza Collingwood and Side Launch Brewery are combining their passions by holding a Pizza and Beer Pairing Challenge just in time for Valentine's Day. On February 11th, a panel of guest judges will help Topper's Pizza Collingwood find the perfect match between a selection of their pizzas alongside a variety of Side Launch beers.
Event takes place Thursday February 11th, Topper's Pizza, 499 First Street Collingwood, from2:00 pm- 3:30pm.
Side Launch Brewery will guide judges through the nuances of the beers, and the intricate flavors that can be rediscovered when biting into the slice of pizza. "There's always been a little bit of romance between pizza and beer," says Chuck Galea, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Side Launch Brewery. "It all begins with sharing the story of the beer."
As an example, he says the citrusy notes in a pale ale helps cut spice of a dish, and a Bavarian wheat beer can refresh the palate and prepare your body for more food.
"We are very excited for this event," says Karen Trottola, Marketing Director for Topper's Pizza Canada. "We loved the idea of combining pizza with beer plus we get to partner with an amazing local brewery."
Side Launch Brewery will use their culinary knowledge and beer expertise to shortlist the selection to two pizzas per beer. The judges will then vote on the best pairing. Finding the perfect match has never been so tasty! The winning selections will be announced on Valentine's Day through Topper's social media channels.
