Lucky Hare Recommended Traditional Pairings for Thanksgiving Fare

LUCKY HARE BREWING RECOMMENDED PAIRINGS FOR TRADITIONAL THANKSGIVING FARE!

Turkey - Gotta start with the turkey because it is the star of the show, unless it ends up being dry... My go to for pairing with a properly seasoned and brined bird would be a pale ale. Ryes Up is a perfect beer to pair your Thanksgiving turkey with the spicy rye malt flavor and citrusy aromas complimenting the mild flavors of a delicious turkey

Mashed Potatoes - People would argue that this is the star of the show and I would be one of them. Buttery, rich, and usually debilitating from overconsumption, mashed potatoes and our new Vienna Lager make perfect sense. Something as dense as a plop of mashed potatoes needs the balance of a lager with a little body and some roasted biscuity flavor.

Stuffing - Even more people would argue this is the star, especially when making a Turducken. Stuffing comes in all shapes and sizes from you basic boxed StoveTop, to oyster, or cranberry. If going the cranberry route, Fruit Salad is the winner. The tart fruit forward flavors of the Fruited Kettle Sour enhance those tiny morsels of cranberry, cutting through the assumed ladle of gravy, herbs and spices. 

Dessert - Assuming it is pie, you want to fight fire with fire. You may also want to increase the speed in which your napping begins. I Am The Liquor can hang with any traditional Thanksgiving pie and work well with big spoonfuls of bread pudding covered in homemade caramel. The bold, smooth flavors of a barrel aged Russian Imperial Stout will never fail as the final pairing before imminent sleep sitting up in front of your family (most likely over Zoom this year).
