That’s not to say that we don’t cater to those without kids, though. Don’t take a blog page introduction’s word for it, keep scrolling and find out what’s going on at Parry’s.

We’ve put a lot of thought into developing events for the community to enjoy and we hope that you appreciate it. We are new-ish to the area, but we’d like to open our doors to you for NY style pizza, calzones, wings, craft beer and fun. Lots of fun. This blog should keep you on track in discovering more about our pizzeria.

If you’d like to get a bit deeper into what we’re doing beyond this blog on the craft beer side of things, get signed up for the Ale Yeah Club. This club is for those of you over 21 and have an affinity for amazing craft beer and craft beer events.

Every year, we have several events that you should get on your calendar. Don’t get us wrong, these are craft beer events and some of them are absolutely family-friendly enough to bring the kids along to enjoy with the rest of the adults in the party. The Big Ass Tap Takeover with Avery Brewing Co. is always a hit with families. Our Ugly Sweaters and Barrel Aged Beer event is another annual event the brings out the beer geekery in droves donned in some really, really ugly sweaters. If you haven’t heard of our Liberate Fests, get on this. Whenever you see a blog post about our Liberate Yourself from Crappy Beer Fests, know that there will be a grandiose selection of rare beers tapped for these events.

Stay tuned and subscribe to our blog for the most up-to-date happenings at Parry’s. Those that do will certainly find that we’re more than just a pizza shop.

We’ll see you soon! #AleYeah

Parry’s Pizza would like to announce the launch of the newly-devised loyalty program, “Empire City”.

Your loyalty to our restaurants should be rewarded. You spend lunches and dinners here and the libations, of course, you drink those here, too.

We are proud to introduce to you “Empire City”!  A simple and easy loyalty program to acknowledge your visits and reward your decision to frequent our establishment on a regular basis!  The more often you visit, the bigger the reward!  And the coolest part is “Empire City” has a very simple for you to unlock all of the greatness that awaits you!

Also worth mentioning: Empire City has several levels of “status” and with each level you rise comes shinier objects as rewards. After accumulating a nice chunk of points in Empire City, you will be elevated to a new level with special perks and after doubling that in a year, you earn “Top Tier Status”! Once you’ve obtained your “status” you can never lose it. Ever! No matter what, you will always have your “status”.

New happy hour specials

New Happy Hour Specials at Parry’s Pizza

New Happy Hour Specials

A change has been made to our happy hour that we think you are going to love!

Happy hour is special to lots of our customers for various reasons. Most of those reasons revolve around discounted libations and food that can be had at not quite the end of the day, but close to it. We like nothing more than making sure our customers are happy about our happy hour and we believe that we have curated a very handsome happy hour offering.

Like most places, our happy hour lasts longer than just a single hour. Why wouldn’t it? People’s schedules differ vastly from one another and to just have one hour would be an injustice. Our happy hour runs Monday (ughhh, Monday) through Friday from 3pm to 6pm. If you’re not a drinker, grab a few bites of food to tide you over into the dinner hours. If you ARE a drinker, you should expect some good drinks on the cheap. We’ve done just that.

Our Real Dill® Bloody Marys have gained quite the loyal following at our stores and if it’s important to you that you support Colorado-born companies, this is your drink. Real Dill® is from right here in Colorado and if you haven’t had one of our Bloody Marys made with their tasty mix, you’re just not livin’.

You can now enjoy these Bloody Marys during our happy hour for only $4.99 each. To round out the list we’ve added signature Margaritas for $3.99 and all well drinks and house wine will be priced at $3.99 each.

Our Parry’s signature beers, brewed here in Denver by Epic Brewing Co.,  also make an appearance on this list. Get our Parry’s IPA, Crushin’ It Cream Ale and Landon’s Blood Orange Wanna Walk Wheat all for just $3 each for a full pour.

Maybe dinner will be late tonight. No big woop. Our happy hour drinks are served right aside some specially priced food deals:

9” CHEESE PIZZA – toppings additional 5.99

LIBERTY WINGS  – golden brown breaded boneless chicken wings smothered in your choice of any sauce from below
Homemade Zesty Mild, Medium, Hot, Extra Hot, BBQ (regular or hot), Garlic (regular or hot), Teriyaki (regular or hot) 10 pcs  4.99

MADISON SQUARE BITES – breaded macaroni and cheese served with white ketchup 4.99

POLO GROUNDS PARM BITES – our famous pizza dough, made fresh daily, rounded, fried, then tossed in a parmesan and spice mixture and served with homemade marinara for dipping  4.99

“BODEGAS’ BEST” CRISPY BEANS  – breaded, deep fried and golden brown green beans served with white ketchup 4.99

CHAP’S CHIPS – natural cut potato chips tossed in our blend of secret spices served with a side of bbq 2.99

Stop in and check out our new happy hour specials. We’re pretty proud of this lineup and we think you’ll be enjoying this for weeks to come.

Big Ass Tap Takeover with Avery Brewing Co.

Big Ass Tap Takeover with Avery Brewing Co.

Big Ass Tap Takeover with Avery Brewing Co.

Every year (for the past five years) we’ve thrown a huge party with Avery Brewing Company and we’ve called it the “Big Ass Tap Takeover”. It is called this for good reason and if you’ve ever been to one of these parties, you know why it’s called this. There’s a LOT of Avery beer at this party and fun in tow.

This year is no different as it pertains to the size and scope of the party. It’s our 6th annual Big Ass Tap Takeover Saturday, April 29th and it goes on from 11AM until we decide to break up the party.
Avery Brewing representatives will be hanging out at most of our locations to talk shop (beer) with those in attendance and in need of company. Don’t miss out on this perspective of the party.

Our higher volume stores (Highlands Ranch and Northglenn) will have upwards of 40+ different Avery beers, all of which will be on tap. And, as was the case in years past, there will be some great bottles to be had floating around at different times of the day. We typically set different release times for each of these bottles as we find doing this helps some of our guests make certain they can get their little mitts on one.

Don’t be fooled,either: Just because you had a light breakfast and a couple of slices of your friend’s pizza (while you knocked back 15% abv beers from Avery), that won’t be enough carbohydrates to soak up all of that alcohol. We tell people every year to eat enough to sustain yourself for the duration of the event because the entire event is worth being alert and somewhat sober for.

Just as in years past, Avery Brewing is sweetening the deal for all of the hardcore beer snobs in attendance. The first table to kill a keg at each participating location will get a very special prize from the brewery. If you like money and beer don’t lose sight of being at Parry’s and drinking some stupendous craft-brewed beer on this day. All you can do is win!

Throughout the day, we’ll be raffling off some Parry’s Pizza and Avery Brewing swag. It’s pretty simple to win: buy an Avery beer, get a ticket, listen for your number to be called and once it is, you WIN! The grand raffle prize at the end of the night is a super-duper awesome VIP brewery tour at Avery Brewing up in Boulder!

Look for more information in our Ale Yeah Club emails as to tap lists.
