-Uno Beer Pairing-
Beer is as versatile as it is diverse, providing both complementary and contrasting experiences when paired with food.
Here are a few types of beers we serve, and suggestions from our menu that will help you to explore and enhance your enjoyment of the beer and food at Uno.
American Lager is a type of beer that is conditioned at low temperatures. They are pale and golden, with a crisp clean malt flavor, and mild hops taste. They pair well with light dishes like our Berry & Goat Cheese Salad or Roasted Eggplant, Spinach & Feta Flatbread.
Amber Lagers can be from golden to dark in color. They have a sweet malt and nutty aroma, and generally a less bitter flavor. These full body brews pair well with our Whole Hog Burger or Chicago Classic Deep Dish Pizza.
Pilsner is a type of pale lager. They generally have a light straw to golden color, with a lighter flavor than most other beer styles. Try a pilsner with a stronger flavor pizza such as the Little Italy Deep Dish Pizza, or our spicy Rattlesnake Pasta.
India Pale Ale
India Pale Ale (IPA) is a style of pale ale developed in England for export to India. The color can vary from a light golden to a reddish amber. They have bold flavors with a strong hoppy bitterness. They're a great complement to the sweet vegetables in the Farmer's Market Deep Dish.
- PIZZA & BEER... bff'S SINCE 1943 -
Nothing goes better with pizza than beer.
At Uno we are as passionate about beer as we are our pizza, and believe the more you know about beer, the more you can enjoy it.
The basic ingredients of beer are water; a starch source, such as malted barley, able to be converted to sugar then fermented; a brewer's yeast to produce the fermentation; and a flavoring such as hops. Beer is assessed by bitterness, by strength and by color. The perceived bitterness is measured by the International Bitterness Units scale (IBU). Hops is the sole major contributor to a beer's biterness. Beer ranges from less than 3% alcohol by volume (ABV) to around 14% ABV, though this strength can be increased to around 20%. Beer color is determined by the malt. The most common color is a pale amber produced from using pale malts. Dark beers are usually brewed from a pale malt or lager malt base with a small proportion of darker malt added to achieve the desired shade. Very dark beers, such as stout, use dark or patent malts that have been roasted longer.
