I don’t know what has gotten into the minds of the fine folks at New Belgium Brewing. I’m a big fan of the bulk of their work – Voodoo Ranger has become a staple of my IPA rotation after trying it for the first time at a friend’s wedding. You can’t beat a good old fashioned Fat Tire. 1554 is a good ‘en. Accumulation is one of my favorite holiday beers. And, when I went to the tap room in Asheville, they had some sort of cayenne pumpkin beer that was off the charts. But, while their recent endeavor alongside Tombstone Pizza has piqued my curiosity, I don’t know that I can chart this course alongside them.

Tombstone Pizza and Voodoo Ranger are joining forces to take pizza and beer to the next level with I(Pizza)A. Inspired by Tombstone Pizza’s born-in-a-bar heritage, this limited release Pizza IPA is for the boldest of beer and pizza lovers.

This 7% ABV slice of heaven delivers the flavors of Tombstone’s crispy crust, tangy tomato sauce, and savory herbs and spices into an ice-cold beer. The finishing pepperoni kick of heat that will make you reach for another slice… or another pint.

If I could offer up some advice, ‘I Pizza A’ doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. There…I said it. I couldn’t help myself. Maybe that’s just the editor in me coming out, but maybe we could’ve workshopped that a little bit more.

I can appreciate striving for efficiency. It’s no secret that if you go to any brewery in America, you’re likely going to eat a pizza while you’re there. I’m not sure what it is, but breweries and pizza seem to go hand in hand. If you can eliminate that expense for your patrons, then you’re doing an admirable job. Why buy BOTH beer and pizza when you can just have a pizza beer?!?! I respect that. I’m just not sure how these flavors are going to combine.

Will I try this beer? Yes…assuming I can ever get my hands on it. It’s so distinct and unusual that I’ll probably have no choice but to film myself drinking it for the first time. But, am I necessarily looking forward to it? I don’t know that I can go that far, and I’m willing to go a lot of places.
