|Do you notice the bowling lane wood? Such a neat idea!|
Last week Wednesday, I attended a 'za and beer tasting at Magellan's Bar in Waukesha. It was an absolutely PHE-nomenal experience worth every dollar. And at only $15, I felt like I was stealing! I asked a few friends to join me for the night, including #beerclub, but only Tiffany and Brandon were able to join me. We met some other friends of Tiffany's at the bar and they joined us at our awesome bowling alley table.
I have been a fan of Magellan's pizza ever since they opened up the M2 side of the bar and had regular seating for pizza. The crust is always cooked perfectly and although the 'za might take a little longer on busy nights, it is worth the wait. The bar is located on W. Main Street in downtown Waukesha and has a bar side and a dinner side. They also have live music on weekends, pool and shuffleboard.
The Crisp (5.4% ABV). It lives up to its name with its crisp finish and lightness on the hops.
While waiting for slice two, I took a few shots of the ambiance of the event. I love the Gibson artwork that helps promote Waukesha as a Guitar Town.
Bengali Tiger India Pale Ale (6.4% ABV). Although hoppy, it did have citrus hints and literally killed the spice of the pizza - a perfect pairing. I did take the rest of the salsa off and really enjoyed this slice.

Righteous Ale (6.3% ABV). It was malty, earthy with floral under tones.
Autumnation (6.7% ABV). I do see how this would be a perfect dessert beer, but I think it paired well with the pizza.
This night was WAAAAY more than I expected and I am so happy that I was able to attend. In all about 35 people attended this great event. I hope they plan some more in the future. I will definitely return on a regular night and hope to have the Philly Cheesesteak or Cilantro Basil pizza - my faves of the night. This definitely gives them a 'slice up' from me in my personal pizza challenge. Only a few more places to try - hahahaha - like 20 :)
