Pizza paradise above, beer heaven below, what more could you want? Birreria Paradiso is in the basement of the hugely popular Pizzeria Paradiso and the English-style hand pumps behind the bar serve up cask-conditioned ales that will soon produce heavenly visions in imbibers. The brews on offer include Britain’s Old Speckled Hen, Belgium’s Chimay Cinq Cents and a blood-colored Flemish beer named the Duchesse de Bourgogne. There are three- and four-taste flights ($9 and $11), so sensation seekers can sample a cross-section of Birreria’s extensive offerings—culled from a six-page menu.
