Pizza and Pitchers of Beer
Living in Santa Monica, we usually go to Wildflour when we want a fresh pie and a pitcher of beer in a pizzeria type environment.
I know there's better pizza in the area, but for me, taking it home and having bottled beer or even a pint when our kegerator is behaving isn't the same, and Wildflour's pizza is definitely enjoyable.
What pizza and beer places have you enjoyed in the L.A. or Westside area?
I'd like to venture beyond Wildflour but can't think of any other places that offer good pizza and draft beer.
Though I wouldn't recommend it for watching a game or anything, Pitfire Pizza in downtown LA does me right. They've got Red Hook and a couple of other beers on tap, a few more bottled and some pretty darn good pizza.
When I lived in La Mirada, we used to go to the Lamppost Pizza on La Mirada Blvd, but it's since changed hands and become some other pizza place. Haven't been there yet, but we used to hit Lamppost because we always had coupons.
There is an older place in Lakewood called Me-N-Ed's really good, not to filling crust. Best pizza is prob the pepperoni and jalapeno! Decent selection of Beers, they have Michelob Amber Bock on tap goes great with a lot of different pizzas!
It's funny ... or not so funny ... but we used to hit Shakey's for the beer and pitcher thing.
Now, both the Shakey's on Santa Monica and the Shakey's on Washington are both closed down.
Shakey's never had great pizza, but they did have draft beer.
And -- oddly enough -- I could stomach their chicken and potatoes. Keg beer must make food taste better.
A lot of the recs in this thread are not for places in Santa Monica or on the Westside.
Earth, Wind and Flour might have draft beer, though I wouldn't recommend the food. IT's up on Wilshire.
Man, you've asked a great question: Is there a good pizza joint with draft beer in the city of Santa Monica?
"Is there a good pizza joint with draft beer in the city of Santa Monica?"
A better question is ARE there any good pizza and draft beer joints in LOS ANGELES? I would drive a good deal to get a good pie and pitcher. In the OLD days there was Straw Hat, Shakey's, Numero Uno and all sorts of Mom & Pop joints. What happened?
