Thanksgiving and Beer

Many customers have been asking for recommendations for pairing beer and Thanksgiving dinner. Here are my picks and beers I'll be drinking on Thursday.

Traditional Pairing #1: Avec Les Bons Voeux - Brasserie Dupont - Saison
I look forward to this release every fall.

Traditional Pairing #2: 3 Monts Grande Reserve - Brasserie De Saint-Sylvestre - Biere de Garde
A great palate cleanser.

Traditional Pairing "Local Beer" - Red Barn - Lost Abbey - Saison
 A nice saison brewed right here in San Diego.

Pairing for a wine drinker: La Choulette Framboise- Brasserie La Choulette - Fruit Beer
This is my favorite framboise and will hold up to the sweeter portions on your plate.

Not So Traditional Pairing - Supplication - Russian River - Wild Ale
I usually recommend pinot noir to pair with turkey. Supplication is aged in pinot noir barrels so I'm hoping the subtle flavors of the pinot have the same effect. The fact that I love sours and can drink them all night helps also.

Dessert Pairing #1: 4 Calling Birds - The Bruery - Belgian Strong Ale
Goes great with holiday cookies since it tastes like one itself.

Dessert Pairing #2: Treat - Midnight Sun - Pumpkin Ale
Can't wait to have this with Julian Pumpkin Pie.

Enjoy the holiday and be safe,
