PW Pizza Breckenridge Brewery

I've actually BEEN to the Breckenridge Brewery!! One of my few cool claims to fame is that I stopped there for dinner one night after skiing. (I will probably never say those words again.)

It was strange to start off with an IPA, but it does make sense to pair it with goat cheese. And the Hop Peak IPA actually was drinkable...not hoppy at all.

Macaroni & Cheese Pizza was brilliant and was the best pizza of the night for sure. It stood up to the heavier and fuller bodied Christmas Ale.

Yes, that's mashed potatoes on top there! We had the usual "turkey" pizza, this time called "Pilgrim Pizza", and I actually enjoyed it a lot although I'm not sure the flavor combination went well for anyone else. Definitely not as good as in year's past since there was a lot less "sauce" involved. The Agave Wheat was the star for this course as the beer was so easy to drink.

The Vanilla Porter is their most famous beer and a perfect dessert pairing although it overwhelmed the pumpkin pie a little bit. (I figured we weren't going to have a chocolate dessert, but I bet that would have gone even better with the porter.)
