Pizza and Beer

Vancouver Craft Beer week is coming up starting May 31.  Have you considered attending any event?  The event website is at this link.

But if you can’t wait, because pizza is awesome to enjoy with friends and family, and a craft beer (or wine) is an excellent pairing, why not visit Nicli Antica Pizzeria?   Check out their press release below.


(Vancouver, BC) Beer and pizza – it’s become a classic Canadian combination. Whether it’s an after game celebration, before class quick bite, or dinner out with friends; beer and pizza is everyone’s ‘go to’ casual meal. It’s become so ubiquitous that most of us take it for granted. Not at Nicli Antica Pizzeria where they continue the century old tradition of creating Neapolitan-style pizzas the proper way – with love, by hand, using the only the best seasonal ingredients.

Coming up are three Craft Beer and Pizza Pairing Dinners that may just have you appreciating beer and pizza with a whole new respect. “We are very excited to be partnering with three of BC’s top artisan breweries,” says Nicli owner Bill McCaig. “Like a wine-pairing dinner, it’s a great way to showcase the flavour profiles in the beer and how they complement our pizzas. For these initial dinners we are so pleased to be working with Parallel 49 (May 13), Driftwood (May 20) and Howe Sound (May 27). They demonstrate the same care and attention to beer-making that we do with our pizzas. We think this may be a Vancouver first and if they’re well received, we’ll do more.”

The dinners start at 8:30 p.m. and each includes courses of four different pizzas plus dessert paired with beer from the featured brewery. A representative of the brewery will be in attendance to talk about the pairings and the beers. The very reasonable price of $45 per person, per dinner includes the meal, the pairings, tax and gratuity. Tickets must be purchased in advance and can be obtained on Event Brite.

Mark these on your calendar and join Nicli Antica Pizzeria for three special dinners pairing local craft beers and Nicli’s artisan pizza:
• Monday, May 13 – Parallel 49 Brewery
• Monday, May 20 – Driftwood Brewing
• Monday, May 27 – Howe Sound Brewing
