PW Pizza Bell's Beer Dinner

My regular photographer was not available for October's PW Pizza dinner, but luckily a friend who really enjoys Ales was available to help me enjoy the Bell's beer dinner.

Menu
I had only tasted a few of their beers before so it was a good chance to taste a variety of flavors as well as one special release.

My favorite beer was the first one, the Brown Ale, as usual, because it was the lightest and least hoppiest.

Grilled Pork Crostini with Wild Mushroom, Scallions, Peppercorn Aioli
The first pizza of the night included shrimp but the spicy sauce on top was a bit overwhelming for the Amber Ale.

Smoked Paprika Shrimp Pizza with Feta Cheese, Green Pepper,
Red Onion, Corn, Cilantro and a Cajun Remoulade
The butternut squash pizza was definitely my favorite since it was covered with caramelized onion on my favorite honey wheat crust.

Butternut Squash Pizza with Herb Ricotta, Caramelized Onion,
Garden Greens and a Portabella Cream Sauce
The dessert course was really intense with whipped gargonzola on top of a raspberry sauce. You could taste chunks of cheese in each bite. An intense pairing overall!

Sweet Whipped Gorgonzola with Raspberry Mint Coulis, Toasted Walnuts
