“Hops and pizza, you can’t go wrong,” says Sharif Taleb, head brewer at Yonkers Brewing Co.

The folks at Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana in Yonkers thought so, too. That’s why the two are joining forces for a pizza and beer fest that runs through June 17.

“The Yonkers IPA and Shower Time Pale Ale’s bold citrus aromas and crisp refreshing bitterness will meld well with the rich, delicious cheesy pizza,” Taleb adds.

A two-topping small pizza with a pint is $13.99 and with a bottle, it’s $15.99. A two-topping large pizza with a pitcher is $29.99.

From 5:30 to 8 p.m. June 15, you can enjoy beer tastings and a beer talk at Pepe’s Yonkers locale and enter a contest to win a pizza party for six, a tour of the brewery and more.
