Hello! It is bright and early on Thursday morning here in American, and so allow me to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! With the holiday, I'm pushing the regularly-scheduled Thursday video review to Friday.
But don't worry. I won't leave you empty-handed on this Thanksgiving! Perhaps you are doing your final of about 17 runs to the grocery store, because you need extra potatoes or forgot to buy cinnamon for the pie, or dinner rolls, or a turkey or something. And just as you head for the register and pray the turkey in the oven hasn't exploded, you realize that you FORGOT TO BUY BEER!
Fear not, loyal readers! I have a couple of handy guides that will help you pair beer with the legendary Thanksgiving feast!
First off, Serious Eats engaged their on-staff Cicerone (certified beer expert) Mike Reis to break down several styles of beer and their Thanksgiving-appropriateness. He even matches up some of the beers with standard individual Thanksgiving dishes.
Earlier this week, the Denver Post sought a number of opinions, including those of Cicerones, brewery owners, and event planners, to find out the best beers for three categories: Pre-dinner sessioning, main course, and dessert.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Be safe and sound, and enjoy the day!
