Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza Hosts Craft Beer Tasting Dinner Wednesday With Magic Hat and Pyramid Breweries

What's a well-done pizza mean to you? A bit of char at the bottom? Melty, bubbling cheese with a fine film of smoked-in flavor across the top? A nice crunch when you bite into it?

At Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza, it means cooking pies in a specialty, 800-degree anthracite coal burning ovens known to be the "cleanest" of coals, burning smoke free with extremely high heat to create a unique taste and perfect pies. It's become a sort of slogan for Anthony's -- pizza "well-done" -- whose family of restaurants has quickly expanded from Florida across New England in states like Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York.

To celebrate, Anthony's Fort Lauderdale -- the first location -- will be hosting a special beer pairing dinner, the first of its kind.
