Peter’s Blog, June 26th
There’s a whole lot more to this story, all of which will be revealed over the next few months but, and here’s the most exciting part, our plan is for The Bruery to unveil this new beer at The Great American Beer Festival in Denver at the end of September, and have Kelly and I make the pizzas in one of Joseph Pergolizzi’s ovens so that those in attendance can taste the beer and the pizza together. We’re still working on that part — lot’s of logistics to work out, so there’s no guarantee we can pull it all off — but we’ll be giving you updates over the next few months. I will say this though: the pizzas were awesome, we tasted fourteen of The Bruery’s amazing beers, we filmed some fun and exciting new cooking Instructionals using Tim’s oven, including an amazing 4-Minute Pan-Seared Rib Eye Steak, as well as a 4-Minute “Dirty Steak” cooked right in the coals, and even filmed two dough making Instructionals, including the new “Signature Challenge Pizza” dough. All of this will be coming your way sometime before the GABF (Great American Beer Festival).
Of course, we have a lot of other webisodes to show you first, between now and then, including footage we shot in San Francisco at world champion pizzaiolo Tony Gemignani’s new pizzeria in North Beach, and our trip with him to tomato country during harvest season, and lots more. And, of course, we still have more to share from The Cass House Inn over the next few weeks. So, as you know, we aren’t kidding when we say, as we often do in the Coming Attractions section, that there’s always something new here at Pizza Quest. We are so excited about the next few months that we hope you will help spread the word and tell your friends to join us here. We will soon be proudly announcing some wonderful new sponsors and sharing news of their artisanal ingredients, and plenty of new guest columns, recipes, pictorials, and, of course, videos.
We just passed an important milestone, our six month anniversary, and have reached many thousands of viewers. There may even be some television news in our future — you’ll know as soon as we know, but some things are brewing, er, baking — so stay tuned. Yes, there’s always something new here at Pizza Quest….
