First, a wheat ale would pair well with olive oil, herbs, feta and veggies. Our second choice is a Scotch ale that pairs nicely with the spinach and feta. Or we could try a Koslch which allows all those veggies to be the stars they are meant to be!
But by taking the flavours and pizza style into account there are some tasty choices. One is a citrusy pale ale as a refreshing contrast to the smoked oysters. Or we could try an American strong ale which stands up to all the cheese and sauce in the deep dish pizza.
Shrimp Scampi Deep Dish Pizza
For a seafood pizza like a Shrimp Scampi Deep Dish Pizza, a Berliner Weiss is the number one choice. It’s tart acidity and citrus profile pairs well with the shrimp and cheese. And thanks to its fruity nose and dry hopping a farmhouse ale pairs with the spinach and shrimp.

See the full list of pizza and beer pairing. I’m looking forward to trying an Italian Meatball pizza with an IPA as that’s my favourite beer. And the Hawaiian combined with a golden ale is another on my list.
