Everyone loves pizza and everyone loves beer! Now that you’re a grown-up put some twists on an old theme and not only will you have great time with out over stressing yourself or your bank account but so will your guests. Did someone say pizza party !!!
1— Asks guests to bring their favorite small batch or regional beer. Micro-brewing and craft beers have become plentiful these days and their taste and quality far out weigh the Anheuser Busch’s of the world. There are countless blogs dedicated to the art of brewing and you may even be lucky enough to get a guest who makes his own. A few of my favorites are; Downtown Brown, Captain Lawrence, & Magic Hat.
2— Utilize more than just your oven by taking it to the grill too with a pizza stone. This way you can test more than one flour as well as keep turning out the pizzas. And of course make sure you’ve made all your dough or bought all your crusts before hand.
3— Now that you have the cooler iced down with some craft beers get the bar ready by making it full of toppings so that your guests get a chance to make it just the way they like it! Of course crumble your favorite sausages and add some cheeses from the local shop but why not also grill up some veggies while you are at and dare to go where no man has gone peanut butter and bacon?

4— For décor think brown paper bagging it! You can buy craft paper and set the table using some pens. Leave them out for the guests to have some fun with each other and that left over craft paper is perfect for the kids next party or craft night. This look is simple and leaves clean up super easy cause you just throw it away. Best part is your don’t even need paper plates if you double it up. Here is great idea for a setting from Improvised Life!
5— Now that you’ve had a few beers and have stuffed your face with pizza how do you work in a dessert that is just as fun? Well a BEER FLOAT of course. Here are 6 great ideas but why not test a few flavors like salted carmel, butter pecan, and chocolate with the beers your guests have brought.
