Beer and pizza. Was there ever a food and beverage pairing more meant to be together? Fans of this delicious combination will be pleased to hear that Friday 9 October is International Beer and Pizza day so there’s even more of a reason to indulge. We’ve selected some of the best places to satisfy your beer and pizza cravings in Parramatta.
For happy hours
Most would agree that there’s nothing like a good happy hour, particularly when it comes to beer and pizza. At ALEX&Co you can enjoy an extended happy hour session with refreshing $5 schooners and delicious $10 pizza from 3-5pm Monday to Saturday and 2-5pm on Sunday. They’ve got crowd-pleaser beer classics on tap including Furphy, Hahn Super Dry and James Squire 150 lashes. Their ALEX&Co twist on the traditional Hawaiian pizza with double smoked bacon, chilli paste, and pineapple is great for fans of the famous meat and fruit pizza topping combo. Otherwise you might be tempted by their range of eclectic, quality pizza toppings including the BBQ wagyu brisket, pork and fennel salami and shitake truffle mushrooms. With the Mediterranean décor and riverside views, it’s a great space to sit back, sip your beer and relax with a belly full of pizza.

For classic hotel charm with a contemporary twist
The Winston was one of the first local venues to tap into the craft beer market and its extensive range of craft beers on tap make it a fine contender for an afternoon (and into the evening) session. For American style craft beers try the Old Mate Pale Ale by Moon Dog Craft Brewery or the Feral Brewing Company’s Biggie Juice, otherwise the Budgy Smuggler Pale Ale by Nomad Brewing Co. is an Australian must-try brew. You can choose from its range of bars, from the charming classic hotel style bar and dining room inside, to the sun-soaked terrace and pavilions surrounded by lush gardens for those who prefer an alfresco experience. Their gourmet pizza menu is switched around regularly so as you work your way through the craft beers you can mix up your pizza choices too. You’ll also get to enjoy live music while you digest your pizza and sip your beer every Friday night from 9.30pm.
