PW Pizza Sierra Nevada Beer Dinner

I don't really know much about Sierra Nevada brewery, but apparently they have a lot of IPAs as that seemed to be the theme of the evenings with three of them on the menu - out of four courses!

The Hop Bullet IPA was at least a little sweet since it was paired with the Curried Sweet Potato Soup, which had a little bit of a kick. Soup is definitely appropriate for winter, but I had to save room for PIZZA!

I was a little nervous with the first pizza as "Nopales" was the main "meat" on this "Bad Hombre". (I had an allergic reaction once to a cactus taco.) Luckily, everything was fine and I actually enjoyed the Otra Vez Gose.

The next pizza was so good that we forgot to take a picture! BBQ Pork Pizza with BBQ sauce. The meatier pizza also went well with the lighter-hopped beer - Hazy Little Thing IPA. Perfect for a summer day.

Another no-brainer pairing was an Orange Poppy Seed Cake (and Vanilla Ice Cream) with the Side Car Orange IPA. It wasn't that bad of an IPA (for me), but at this point, my mouth was toast.

Hopefully there will be more variety come next month's dinner...
