A Slice of Win at Waldo Pizza

Waldo Pizza has some new stuff on tap recently. Unfortunately, their website is out of date and my memory is pretty poor, so I'm going to do my best to recall what they had available... 
  • Bell's Hopslam
  • Bear Republic Racer 5
  • Avery IPA
  • HofBrau Hefeweizen
  • New Belgium 2 Below
  • Boulevard Irish Ale
  • Schlafly Coffee Stout
  • Lindeman's Raspberry Lambic
  • Peroni
  • Beamish
There are about twice as many beers on tap there but my memory fails me (shocking, I know). Regardless, the selection right now is fantastic. They're just waiting for the 2 Below to blow out and will replace it with a keg of Sierra Nevada's Bigfoot (2009 is its 25th anniversary!). We asked about Torpedo, but alas - none in sight. YET.

I had a Racer 5, John had the Avery IPA, and we split a pint of the coffee stout. I thought the coffee stout was pretty tasty. It definitely has a rich up-front coffee aroma and taste, with a nice bitter chocolate aftertaste that lingers for a few seconds. The head was tan, creamy, and lingering. Mouthfeel was just about right - not too light but not velvety or creamy. This is a good coffee stout and if you like the style, it's worth getting a pint. It was served just a bit colder than I'd have preferred, but that's easy to fix. 

The bartenders are always friendly and talkative, and they all know their beer. Tonight's experience was no different. We had a nice evening there, and I recommend checking out the current selection and supporting your Best Little Place for Pizza.


  1. Wow, I had planned on making a trip just for the Hopslam, but Racer 5 on tap has made this a priority.

    Thanks for the heads up!

  2. Barley's seems to have had Racer 5 and Hop Rod Rye on tap constantly since they came to KS.

  3. I'm enjoying a 2009 Bigfoot right now, my first of the year. I suspect it will by nappy time real soon.
