On Sunday (Jun 26), there will be a pizza and beer pairing at Gung Ho Pizza in Lido. Beers and being brought in especially are from Ballast Point Brewing, an American brewery founded in San Diego, California in 1996, making it the first microdistillery in the city since prohibition and going on to become San Diego's second largest brewer in 2015. At the tasting you will have the opportunity to try four beers alongside Gung Ho's pizza pairings for RMB 100, but make sure to get in touch with them and make a reservation (WeChat: wximbeer).

The beers will include Ballast's California Kölsch German-Style Pale Ale, which is brewed with aromatic German hops, American and Munich malts, making it a smooth and easy-to-drink option and will be paired with Gung Ho's hot ‘n’ spicy pizza.

Even Keel is a hoppy session IPA with 3.8 percent ABV. The full-flavored beer, featuring a silky malt backbone and aromas of herbs and citrus, will be paired with Italian sausage pizza and fried fish.

Grunion Pale Ale is an award-winning hoppy pale ale with 5.5 percent ABV, a strong hoppy aroma balanced with summer melon and herbal flavors and soft caramel malt sweetness. Gung Ho have opted to serve their spicy beef pizza and original flavored popcorn chicken alongside this beer.

And finally the Big Eye IPA, brewed with English hops, is particularly bold at 7 percent ABV, and since its creation has won 20 awards for the brewery. Expect this one to be paired with the carnivore's pizza and chicken wings.

One more piece of news from pizza giant Gung Ho is that their new Xihongmen store opens today, as we reported previously. To celebrate the opening, the team are offering buy-one-get-one-free pizzas until July 3.
