OTTO + Maine Brew Bus Team Up for Pizza Delivery and Beer Education

On one of the recent (and rare) blue-sky days this spring, we teamed up with The Maine Brew Bus to deliver pizza to the hard-working employees of seven local breweries and to educate our awesome employees on the Maine beer that we serve. We had a super fun day serving up some pizza love and getting our beer education on!

Our first stop was in Freeport to check out Maine Beer Company before heading back south to Portland’s East End neighborhood to hit up Oxbow. We hopped a quick ride on the bus down to East Bayside to partake in the beers of Rising Tide and Lone Pine, then finding our way over to Bissell Brothers at Thompson’s Point, before ending the day in Riverside at Allagash and Foundation.

Check out the day’s happenings in our short video…

Thanks, Maine! OTTO voted Best Pizza for 7th consecutive year

We are beyond thrilled to learn that OTTO has been named Best Pizza and Best Delivery Food in the Portland Phoenix Best of 2017 Awards4ac6a9421404dcf4878f120423d03756_L

Although it’s been nearly eight years since we opened our first (tiny) slice shop on Congress Street in downtown Portland, it continues to be such an honor to be recognized by those who have made our growth possible.  A huge thanks to those who voted for us — not only for your vote, but for your loyalty over the years.

This marks the 18th award OTTO has received via the Phoenix’s annual Best Of poll, including seven consecutive Best Pizza awards, four Best Late-Night Restaurant awards, and four Best Delivery Food awards.  In a town with no shortage of delicious pizza, and with one of the best food scenes in America, we feel especially honored.

We look forward to continuing to serve the wonderful folks of Maine. We are so incredibly fortunate to live, work, and make pizza in one of the greatest towns on the planet.

Thank you, Maine!

Jack’s Abby Marathon Monday Tap Takeover

Every year on Patriots’ Day, approximately 30,000 runners and half a million spectators appear en masse along the 26.2 mile Boston Marathon route from Hopkinton to Copley Square in Boston.

By the time participants arrive at Mile 24, they have conquered Heartbreak Hill and are realizing how close they really are to that blue and yellow finish line.

Mile 24 is also home to our Coolidge Corner location and mere steps away from the marathon route on Beacon Street. The all-day party that takes over Boston and its suburbs always seems to find its way through our doors in Coolidge. Hundreds of spectators come in on Marathon Monday to fill up on pizza and beer before & after cheering on their favorite marathon runners. This year, we teamed up with Jack’s Abby Craft Lagers for an all-day tap takeover with 6 of their beers on tap and the pizza ovens full ’round the clock.

Check out this year’s Marathon Monday!

Marathon Monday Jack’s Abby Tap Takeover

On Monday, April 17th, we’re teaming up with our friends from Jack’s Abby Brewing Craft Brewing for a Marathon Monday Tap Takeover!

Join us at our Coolidge Corner location in Brookline, MA for a day of marathon cheers and lots of beers. We’ll be handing out tons of swag and pouring some of Jack’s Abby’s best brews throughout the day. Come join the fun as we carb-load our way through race day from 11AM to 11PM.

There’s something for everyone in this delicious draft lineup:

As an added bonus to the festivities, all marathon runners presenting their race bib will receive 10% off their tab!

Cheers to all Boston Marathon runners and supporters!

Oscar Tango Tango Oscar: Rising Tide and OTTO’s Spring Collaboration Brew Is Back!

On the heels of Autohelm, the highly regarded winter collaboration, OTTO and Rising Tide Brewing Company are bringing back their spring collaboration, Oscar Tango Tango Oscar, a crisp, snappy, and sessionable pale ale brewed with rice.OscarTango_Poster_V1_50perc

Now available in Maine, diners at all OTTO locations will be able to pair their pie with Oscar Tango Tango Oscar. By mid-April, OTTO diners at our Coolidge Corner, Comm Ave, and Arlington locations in Massachusetts will be able to do the same.

This limited special collaboration will be available exclusively at OTTO and the Rising Tide tasting room.

The brewing process kicked off in early March, with OTTO team members on site to learn how the beer is made. While the Autohelm collaboration was brewed to provide a hearty, hoppy dose of comfort during the harsh New England winter, Oscar Tango Tango Oscar’s citrusy snap goes perfect on our sunny patios while sharing one of OTTO’s spring pies — eggplant, ricotta and basil, or roasted chicken, caramelized pears and fontina.

Oscar Tango Tango Oscar’s profile is sure to provoke an onset of Spring Fever.

Check out brew day behind-the-scenes here!

Aroma: tangerine, orange peel, grapefruit, rose
Taste: tangerine, grapefruit, cereal, crisp with a snappy bitterness
Malts: 2-row, flaked rice, carapils
Hops: amarillo, mandarina, cascade
Yeast: house american ale
Specifics: 4.4% abv, 1.044 o.g., 4 srm, 25 ibu

Cheers!
