Spicy foods need spicy beers—go for an India Pale Ale (IPA). We particularly like IPAs by Long Trail and Harpoon Brewery. If you’re not a hop-head, the malty sweetness of brown ales work well with the sweeter elements on the pizza: our favorite is Wolaver's. Or try Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale, a cross between the two styles.
Sweet and bitter elements on this pizza need a similarly balanced beer. A pale ale or amber ale fills the bill beautifully—we like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and New Belgium Brewing Company's Fat Tire Amber Ale.
Look for a brew without overpowering flavors, such as a lager or a less yeasty witbier, so the pizza’s fresh, subtle flavors can shine. Try Session Lager from Full Sail Brewery or Wolaver's Wit Bier.
Break out the stout—the rich, sweet flavors from the lamb and pomegranate molasses yearn for an equally rich, sweet beer. Our favorite: Shipyard BlueFin Stout.
A well-balanced beer like an Extra Special Bitter (ESB) works well with this multifaceted pizza. We particularly liked Redhook ESB, whose lovely nectarine-like aromas echoed the fruit on the pizza.
