Beer 101

Move over Beaujolais Nouveau.

There are some great beer options for Turkey Day for the non-wine lovers out there!

  • Gose Style Beer – (A sour/tart, fermented, wheat-based style) is great to start off with and great for drinking with food. There are excellent local and flavored options, and they generally have a lower alcohol content (around 4-5%).
  • Belgian Beer – A great choice would be Allagash Curieux, a bold tripel aged in bourbon barrels for 7 weeks. It has great notes of vanilla, coconut and of course, bourbon! A good beer for towards the end of dinner.
  • IPAs (India Pale Ale) – A very popular, more bitter style of beer, due to the addition of more hops, also works great. There are literally hundreds of local and foreign options in this category; stop in and we’ll be happy to give you personalized recommendations!
