The classic pairing of beer and pizza has just gotten even better. Brewed for Buddy’s Pizza by Birmingham-based Griffin Claw Brewing, Buddy Brew is now on tap at all restaurant locations.
As Buddy’s Pizza celebrates its 70th year, the birthplace of Detroit-style square pizza is proud to add this craft beer to its menu, offering fans 21 and older a glass of a made-in-Michigan beer found at Buddy’s.

Buddy Brew is an American Pale Wheat Ale brewed with coriander and grapefruit peel, which perfectly complements Buddy’s legendary Detroit-style square pizzas. With a bright golden yellow color reminiscent of freshly baked pizza dough, the beer charms taste buds with a smooth, subtle sweetness to balance the richness of Buddy’s classic pizza flavors.

Buddy Brew flavors come together to create a very drinkable craft beer.

“We are thrilled with the world-class Brewmaster Dan Rogers at Griffin Claw, who helped us create a tasty, Michigan-made craft beer that is a perfect fit for Buddy’s,” said Wes Pikula, Buddy’s Pizza vice president of operations. “Now we can raise a glass of Buddy Brew as we celebrate Buddy’s 70th anniversary year.”
