With thanksgiving a few days away, I got to thinking about what type of meal to prepare. Then I got to thinking about if I had a nice beer to have with that dinner, what would it be? Personally, I never usually drink at special holiday meals with the family but now that I think about it, a nicely paired brew would hit the spot. Sooo....for those of you having a brew with the thanksgiving meal or a nice brew for an after dinner treat, what is it going to be?

If I was going to choose something simple I’d probably stick with a nice maduro brown. A nice cider like J.K. Solstice wouldn’t be bad either...

I’ll probably go with something like a Prima Pils with dinner; wanna stay light and refreshing with all the food I’ll be consuming, and not have anything big weigh me down. Then either an imperial stout or barleywine, probably barreled, once I am done eating. I don’t have a sweet tooth, and prefer to drink my desserts.

My wife has added a IPA to here brine the last few years with great results. I usually keep with that a stick to a solid IPA. 2 years ago Stone, last year Southern Tier IPA, This year is SN Celebration.

I have a bottle of allagash tripel that has been in the cellar that I’m going to try with dinner. BCBS or BA autumn maple after dinner.

I will be doing mostly homebrew (A few different sours, etc), and maybe some firestone walker parabola to finish off the day

Home brewed pumpkin beer or a nice saison. I like the cider idea also.

Turkey pairs best with Belgian Triple.

Belgian Red to start. Apple Ale with dinner. Treat or Bruery Autumn Maple to finish it out. Might mix in a Cranbic at some point. AKA, mostly Wisconsin beer.

Left Hand Nitro stout. The Nitro + food is divine.

I’ll probably be drinking Sofie with dinner, then whatever I feel like afterwards. I usually get pretty buzzed (not quick) on Thanksgiving. My personal favorite hiliday.

Every Thanksgiving I take a look at the 3L bottles I have and think I should attempt to drink one. I did it once with the Corsendonk Brown. I still have the Augustijn to try and work through. It seems like a daunting task.
