FatCat's Turkey Day Rundown!

The dinner plans are set and the family is prepped for culinary battle.  Now for the drink plans!  Thanksgiving makes for a perfect time to share some malty goodness with your friends and family.  Whether your intended drinking buddies are seasoned craft brew pros or rookies, there is something out there for everyone.

Estrella Damm Inedit - For beginners and fancy pants

This will make a great brew to introduce to craft brew rookies or for those families who may not view craft brew as "classy".  The elegance of the bottle design should get you past the initial "not classy" stigma and get some beer in peoples glasses.  The Estrella Damm Inedit is not only a pretty package, it is a stellar tasting craft brew.  It is light enough for the palates of the non-initiated but complex enough to be intriguing for anyone.  This will make a great accompaniment to your holiday dinner. 

Bell's Third Coast Old Ale - Big Sweet and Complex

This brew would be great as a either a pre-dinner appetizer or post dinner dessert.  The complexity of the malt character is phenomenal and is practically a dish on its own.  Awesome!

Firestone Walker Double Jack - If hops are more your speed

This Imperial IPA is not just bitterness it is wonderful hop character.  The deep grapefruit notes are complemented beautifully by the malt character.  This brew would make a great pre-dinner treat or as a sidekick to the turkey.

Avery The Czar - Wrap Up the Festivities With This Beauty

The Czar is a big bad imperial stout ready to be your grand finale of Thanksgiving.  The big roast and complex maltiness is an absolute treat. 

May you all have a happy Thanksgiving.
