Might have to travel north and taste some of this fine brew.

Beer and pizza are tastes that, for many of us, just seem to go together. But, beer that tastes like pizza?

As CBS station in Chicago, WBBM-TV’s Vince Gerasole reports, a suburban brewer has put a new twist on tap.
Something’s brewing in a garage in St. Charles, Ill. Tom Seefurth is mixing up a concoction he'll eventually pour out as beer – pizza beer.

“It's pizza and beer in a bottle,” Seefurth, a self-proclaimed beer nut, says.

There are actually real pieces of pizza stirred into the mix.
The kettles and tubes of Seefurth’s tiniest of breweries all come together beside the hundreds of beer cans in his collection.

“This is a reflection of my entire life history,” he says.

Too many garden tomatoes cooked up the idea for pizza beer last year. Seeforth and his wife create a tomato garlic puree and bake up the pizza -- in the back yard they pick their own oregano for flavoring.
And back in the brewery Seefurth even grinds his own wheat to get the process started. He'll add other spices, but keeps the recipe a secret.

“The only people who know the recipe are me and my cat, Jethro,” he says.

Seefurth says the flavors of pizza and beer are a natural pairing, and the hobbyist hopes to take drink coast to coast.
You can try some 'Mama Mia' beer for yourself in the next few weeks. It is being sold at Walter Payton's Roundhouse in Aurora.

hmm, I'm not sure about this one... in principle it sounds great but I think in reality I'd like to keep my beer and pizza separate. Perhaps I'm wrong but I reckon this beer would leave you feeling hungry and very unsatisfied. Real beer and pizza FTW

I don't like the sound of 'real pieces stirred in'. I don't think 'beer with bits' would go down to well - but then it does work for Club Orange! But I don't fancy swallowing lumps of morazella with my beer.

He's right though, pizza and beer are a natural pairing but not all in the one bottle!

I would assume they have all the pieces taken out before it's served, don't want it looking like the end of a rough night
