Cheers to Beer and Pizza


Archaeologists are split on whether humankind first used to grain to make bread and then used the leftover to make fermented beverages, or if we first figured out how to make beer and then used the leftovers to make flatbreads. Whatever the case might have been millennia ago, we should be thankful that beer and pizza have been handed down to us a part of the human legacy, and that we can continue to celebrate variations on that fortuitous pairing now that Salud is serving pizza!

In plans that have been in the works since early this year, the Salud Beer Shop has added a wood burning oven right in the shop, putting out 10-inch wood-fired pizzas that fit right in with the high-craft, low-pretention aesthetics that Jason Glunt has been cultivating since the shop opened in 2012.

Pizza creations include the classic Margherita (red sauce, mozzarella, and basil drizzle), but as you know Salud is a place for classic hip-hop; so you and your Tenderoni (red sauce, mozzarella, and peperoni) might prefer to go upstairs to the Cerveceria to get down on Elevators (white sauce, gorgonzola, fennel, onion, and balsamic reduction). One taste of the perfectly singed house-made, hand-tossed dough will have you Claimin True (red sauce, mozzarella, prosciutto, arugula, and lemon vinaigrette), that this is a pizza worthy of the Return of the G (olive oil, mozzarella, zucchini, mushrooms, garlic, and honey).

The new menu also includes a selection of inventive salads, and there will be charcuterie boards and some smaller snack-sized plates to try soon. Lactose-free, vegan cheese is available on any of the pizzas, as well. Jason says that once the kitchen is fully running, he plans to offer weekly specialty pizzas and salads, and that Tuesdays will be dedicated to calzones and pasta dishes.

The pizzas can be ordered to eat in at the bar in either Salud Beer Shop (downstairs) or Salud Cerveceria (upstairs). That should help you figure out which of the always changing selection of beers on tap (or the myriad bottles and cans, wines, or coffees) will best compliment your pizza.
