Taking the classic beer and pizza combo to a new level this summer, Manhattan’s Torch & Crown Brewing Company is setting up a sudsy summertime pop-up at Montauk’s own Dive Bar Pizza.

“Living in the city my entire adult life, I’ve spent a lot of time in Montauk each summer. This Memorial Day weekend, I’m thrilled to announce that Torch & Crown is setting up shop in one of my favorite spots in the area, Dive Bar Pizza,” says co-founder John Dantzler.

Dantzler and his co-founder, Joe Correia, opened Torch & Crown in SoHo in 2020, making it the only working brewery in production in Manhattan currently. The two trail-blazers are setting up a sort of beer garden at the beloved pie purveyor, with a Torch & Crown trailer serving a rotating selection of their craft beer.

“We are excited for our fifth summer on the stretch, particularly with the addition of the beer garden,” said Dive Bar Pizza co-owner Ben Selby in a statement. This opening weekend beer selections include New England-style IPA Almost Famous and hazy IPA Rainbows Everywhere, crushable summer ale Share House, Tenement pilsner and Italian-style pilsner Strada, and dry-hopped American lager Stoop Beer, all on tap.

They’ll also have plenty of cans of their fruited sour, Verve, to sate your summer thirst, too. (Spoiler alert: Don’t be surprised if you see a T&C and Dive Bar Pizza collaboration later on in the summer.)

Grab a slice and a pour starting this Saturday, May 27, at Dive Bar Pizza, 2095 Montauk Hwy., 631-668-8378.
