There is no better way to cover more ground on a pizza and pint exploration, than to hop on your bike and cruise through the city. This is the Pizza and Pints Bike Tour! Our inspiration comes from some New Haven originals; the first pedaled bicycle was invented here in New Haven in 1866 and we were also known for our grand breweries. We then add in New Haven’s own style of pizza, called apizza (pronounced “ah-beetz”). Considered by many to be the best pizza in the world, these Italian tomato pies are known for its unbelievably savory combination of thin crispy, crunchy crust; simple fresh sauce; and locally made mozarella cheese.
We will begin our freewheeling tour at Devil’s Gear Bike Shop where those without bikes and helmets may rent their own. The pizza and pints tour will take us to Wooster Square for the famous Frank Pepe’s Pizzeria Napoletana, cross city lines to West Haven for Zuppardi’s Apizza, then back over to Downtown at Bar with more pie and their home brewed ales, across town to Westville for Ernie’s Pizzeria and we end up at East Rock for Modern Apizza.
