TODAY IS BEER AND PIZZA DAY
It would be hard to find something that makes a day as glorious as finishing it off with that perfect combination of beer and pizza. The foamy head on top of a glass of amber-colored joy seems to be tailor-made to go with the rich and cheesy texture of that favorite of treats, pizza.
It is a little wonder that these two go together so well, with the salty savory buttery crust of the pizza that is reminiscent of that other favorite bar treat, the pretzel.
Beer and Pizza Day reminds everyone to take a moment to indulge in this delightful combo, and remember the good things in life!
