After four decades in business, we created our very own Burlesque Lager and Burlesque IPA to perfectly complement our gourmet pizzas, pastas and calzones!

When asked how Minsky’s got its name, owner Gregg Johnson stated, “It was a two beer marketing idea.”

In 1976, Johnson was sitting in a small-town bar in Iowa when the bar manager suggested the name, “Minsky’s,” after a burlesque in New York City. And thus, Minsky’s Pizza was born.

Minsky’s Burlesque Lager is hand crafted under contract at Weston Brewery by Flying Monkey. Minsky’s approached Robert Eilert at Flying Monkey in search of a brewer for a quality light-bodied American lager that would complement Minsky’s high quality gourmet pizzas. We’re happy to say the collaboration was a success – the beer is great, and it’s extra great with your favorite Minsky’s Pizza.

You can now order the Burlesuqe Lager as part of our Alcohol Delivery service from our Missouri locations!

Get a “leg up” on the crowd and visit your local Minsky’s Pizza to taste the crisp new lager! After all, what is Minsky’s Pizza without a tasty beverage? Come and taste why it’s a favorite tonight!

The lager will is available in cans and the IPA is available on tap at all locations except Lee’s Summit, and is already rolling at several of our metro locations and in Lawrence. Ask your server or bartender for details.
