    Just randomly grabbed Mayflowers Thanksgiving Ale at my local Co-op. Nice hybrid of America Strong Ale and English Old ale. I mean, it's traditional!

    No room in the refrigerator for growlers. No exotics here: Montauk Driftwood Ale, O'Hara's Irish Stout, Perlenbacher Pilsener, Founder's Porter, Harpoon IPA. Our guests might bring some surprises, though.

    Just me and some wine drinkers. Perhaps an opportunity to be an advocate and break out some Robert saison?

    All Bavarian lineup for me:

    • Ayinger Jahrhundert
    • Augustiner Edelstoff
    • Weihenstephaner Helles
    I'd go heavier but I've got a Sippin' Santa excursion at the local tiki bar Friday night so I need to not kill myself.

    Off to a good start- work finished up a few hours early so a bunch of us hit a local bar, which had Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout on draft. First time having that one and holy smokes was it good. BA lists it as 10%abv but it certainly hides that well.

    The folks at our get together are mostly light beer drinkers but do like Oktoberfest beers and some German beers. Our beer line up includes:

    Straub Light
    Labatt's Blue Light
    Hofbrau Oktoberfestbier - a 5-liter minikeg
    Spaten Oktoberfest Ur-Marzen
    Ayinger Oktoberfest-Marzen
    Augustinerbrau-Munchen Edelstoff
    Troeg's Oktoberfest
    Sam Adams Octoberfest
    Sam Adams Pumpkin Ale (not sure if I got this name correct)

    We also have some premixed spiked eggnog on hand. And some Wild Turkey 101 (for Turkey Day, of course!)

    Not sure what I will drink later in the evening. Maye some Dogfishead Punkin Ale. :slight_smile:
    Although Wild Turkey or better yet Rare Breed might be an option then. Or A Midwinter Night's Dram.

    I would line up to get on the guest list for this. O'Hara's and Founder's Porter would be a great way to top off the day.

    Not much of a turkey fan, so it's an enormous cut of dry aged prime rib for Thanksgiving.
    Perfectly paired with Founder's Porter. [​IMG]

    Thanksgiving not so much, will pull out a few nice belgians/saisons and pretty much take it easy. Friday will be a shit show, Magnum of Atrial Rubicite, and whatever else my kids pull out of my beer fridge/shelf.

    Yes I had a Dorothy with Easter Ham dinner a few years ago and it was perfect pairing. Actually I mistaken, it’s an HF Arthur I had stashed in my cellar that I’m chilling now for Thanksgiving today. Like splitting hairs in quality though, I can’t complain.

    Yeah the scotch barrel variant is tricky to find because it was only sold in the 2017 box set and not a lot of people break it up for trading / selling. But it was good! Time has really mellowed the Scotch influence which was a bummer, because like you I love scotch barrel beers too. Peat was mild, relatively oakey, and a lot of raisin / dark fruit.

    If you love Scotch beers then check out “Room a Thousand Years Wide - 2004 Speyside Scotch” from Orpheus brewing. Shouldn’t be too hard to track down and amazing Scotch BA beer. Cheers!

    Not sure what that refers to. My Turkey is juicy as the latest Hazy. Never dry and always full of flavor.

    It's a Calusa Thanksgiving line up this year. Just cracked a Totemic Table Saison. Staying low abv I'll move on to their Fridge Beer for games and finish the night with their The Remnants Imperial Brown Ale. Maybe throw in a Stormrage.

    Hmm, next time I am at the supermarket I will have to look for the "My Turkey" brand. Maybe it is next to Butterball!?! :thinking_face:

    Of course how you cook it matters too:


    More reason to drink lots of beer for Thanksgiving! :beer:

    Being chief cook and beer buyer for todays event I bought a 15 pack of Founders Solid Gold for the Busch Light drinkers and I will split a bottle of Poterie from The Bruery with my bro-in-law and maybe a Budweiser Bourbon County Stout from last year, plus whatevers in the beer fridge. Enjoy what's in yer glass and on yer plate!
