Tag: the good pie

logo1If you’re looking for the most authentic version of Neapolitan pizza in St. Louis, then you really need to visit The Good Pie. The blistered crust of these pizzas are cooked in a wood-burning oven that reaches over 900 degrees.  This is old school pizza, the original.

Some would argue (like me) that cask beer is old school as well.  Lighter carbonation, a little warmer, it’s the way beer way served for centuries before we had modern conveniences like CO2 draft systems and refrigeration.

Pairing these old school classics together, this Friday, June 28th, starting a 12PM, the Good Pie will be tapping a cask of the New Belgium 1554. They’ll be serving it until the cask runs out or The Good Pie closes.

I believe this is the first cask of 1554 available in St. Louis and you can get Neapolitan Pizza to go along with it! Sounds like a classic pairing.

If I had a nickel for each time an out of town visitor asked where to have some dinner with some great beer while visiting St. Louis, I’d probably have at least $9.45. But without a doubt the first answer out of my mouth is usually The Good Pie.

And why not? TGP usually offers up one of the best rotating beer selections in town the the pizzas are delicious. Now, what if you could experience a beer dinner at the Good Pie as well?  Now you can.

Next Monday, January 28th, 4 Hands Brewing Company will be hosting a beer dinner at TGP. The meal will feature four courses (and a dessert) paired up with five different 4 Hands beers.

This dinner is also notable in that you have a chance to try 4 Hands highly sought after Cuvee Ange. Dinner begins at 6:30PM and will set you back $60 per person. You can make reservations by calling 314-289-9391. Peek at the menu below:

First Course:
Pyrus (French Saison brewed with Pear, white pepper, and orange zest)
House-made mortadella, fresh bread

Second Course:
Cuvee Ange (Barrel aged Saison with raspberries and blackberries)
Roasted mushrooms, kale, and cheese (type of cheese TBD, most likely something funky)

Third:
Divided Sky Rye IPA
Margherita Pizza

Fourth:
Smoked Pigasus (Smoked rye maple porter)
Pizza with house-made pancetta, herb and egg

Dessert:
Chocolate Milk Stout Float with house-made chocolate gelato

 

There’s a lot of milestones when you open your own brewery.  Getting those first tanks, running those first test batches, tasting your first beer, and most importantly, selling that first beer.  The best part about owning a brewery is that each new milestone means you get to celebrate by drinking some beer!

Urban Chestnut Brewing Company was about to toast another accomplishment last week as they finally started distributing their beer around the area.  Their first account?  One of their biggest supporters and their neighbor, The Good Pie.

Not all parties need to be big, sometimes it’s just a few friends getting together and having a pint.  Here’s a few photos from last Thursday:

logo1Tomorrow is the first Friday of the month, so that must mean it’s time for another fantastic pairing of best place to get Neapolitan Pizza in the St. Louis area, The Good Pie, and a chance to enjoy some delicious cask beer from Schlafly.

This Friday, November 5th, starting a 5PM, a representative from the St. Louis Brewery will be tapping a cask of the Schlafly ESB dry-hopped with Simcoe & Amarillo hops. They’ll be serving it until the cask runs out or The Good Pie closes.

Sure, you can get cask beer at the Tap Room, but you can’t get Neapolitan Pizza to go along with it! Head on out there for some great pizza and beer.

logo1I try to not use STL Hops for non-beer related news, but this is an issue dear to my heart, so I’m sure everyone will understand.  One of my favorite (if not favorite) restaurants in St. Louis is The Good Pie.  It’s not unlikely to find me in there at least once a week.

Over the time I’ve been going, I’ve gotten to be friendly with everyone working there.  So I was absolutely floored when I heard the news that one of The Good Pie’s pizzaioli, Ryan Skyles, was the victim of a hit and run accident.  Luckily, Ryan is alive, but he’s pretty banged up.  Plus, his bike is trashed.

So today, to help raise some money for Ryan’s medical bills and for a new bike, The Good Pie, 33 Wine Bar, and Gioia’s Deli will be donating all proceeds to Ryan.  To make this a semi-beer related post, The Good Pie and 33 Wine bar have fantastic beer selections all of the time.  So, be sure to help do your part to help out Ryan.
