Happy Thanksgiving! There is nothing better than pairing the perfect beer with your Thanksgiving meal.
Whether you’re hosting or going to family or friends, make sure you aren’t going empty-handed. Stop by the taproom or your local liquor store and grab a 6-pack of Wooden Cask beer.
Here are the perfect food and beer pairings with some of our beers:
Kentucky Farmhand, American Wheat
Food Pairing: Green Bean Casserole, Brussel Sprouts, Carrots, Sweet Potatoes
Light beers, specifically wheat beers pair very well with vegetable dishes with lots of flavors.
Girl Next Door, Blonde Ale
Food Pairing: Ham
If you have ham at your Thanksgiving dinner on top or instead of turkey, our Girl Next Door is a perfect pairing.
7th Street Runoff, Brown Ale/NewPorter, Porter
Food Pairing: Baked/Roasted Turkey
The browning that adds color and flavor to many types of processed food, including beer is similar to when a turkey carmelizes during roasting. So, pair your turkey with a 7th Street Runoff or a NewPorter.
The Scotsman, Scotch Ale
Food Pairing: Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy
A malt heavy beer like The Scotsman also pairs well with turkey and a side of mashed potatoes and gravy.
Winter Ale, American Strong Ale
Food Pairing: Mashed Potatoes, Cornbread
Since potatoes and cornbread are light on flavor, pair those two dishes with a full-flavor beer, like our Winter Ale.
Pacific Time, IPA/Citrannati, Double IPA
Food Pairing: Sweet Potato Casserole
A sweet potato casserole with its bold, sweet flavors will pair well with a hoppy IPA. The hops and bitterness of Pacific Time or Citrannati will enhance the flavors of the sweet potatoes and marshmallows.
Reformation, Scottish Stout
Food Pairing: Chocolate Pie
When eating dessert, you need to pair it well with a dessert beer. The hints of chocolate and cocoa will pair well with any kind of chocolate pie at the end of the night.
Corruption, Barrel-Aged Scottish Stout
Food Pairing: Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Pie
Again, when ending your night with dessert, you must end it with a dessert beer. Corruption’s notes of creamy mouthfeel and notes of chocolate and bourbon will pair well with the two most famous Thanksgiving pies.
