Molly’s Thanksgiving Beer Recommendations:

Almanac’s Dogpatch Grand Cru
air jordan shoe release dates
A bold, robust sour aged in red wine barrels for over a year with a blend Zinfandel, Syrah, Tannat, Petite Sirah, and Tempranillo grapes to create an intricately vinous, tannic, and exceptionally original brew. This elegant beer brings tannic red wine notes with tart, sour yeast components. Perfect with cranberry sauce.

Almanac’s Farmers Reserve Grand Cru

Almanac’s Farmers Reserve was brewed as an ode to delicate and aromatic white wines. California-grown Muscat Blanc grapes were added to an imperial version of their sour blonde ale then aged in white wine barrels for over a year. Try this for a celebratory toast or a before dinner treat.

Firestone Walkers Velvet Merlin

Velvet Merlin oatmeal stout is the perfect beer to go with your Thanksgiving dessert. Rich chocolate and roasted coffee notes will complement the end of a delicious meal!

Broc Cellars Love Red 2014

A light bodied red blend of Carignan, Valdigui, and Syrah this loveable red is perfect for the Thanksgiving dinner table. With notes of bright red fruits, wild flowers, and hints of earth and dried herbs this is sure to become a new favorite for the Thanksgiving dinner table. vc

Robert Sinskey Pinot Gris 2012

With aromas and flavors of melon, ginger-spiced pear, almond and apple blossom this vibrant wine is a worthy dinner companion. Weighty on the mid-palate it is more than capable of holding its own amongst all the flavors a thanksgiving meal has to offer.

Elio’s Thanksgiving Wine Recommendations:

Nusserhof Lagrien Riserva 2009
nike 95 air max
I love this producer and the job that he does with Lagrein, an indigenous grape varietal from Alto Adige. Elegance, light tannins, a gentle spiciness and fresh acidity makes a perfect match for a turkey dinner and the works. Earthy stuffing with mushrooms and chestnuts, cranberry sauce and gravy will heavenly sing with this wine!

San Fereolo, Coste di Riavolo, Langhe Bianco, 2011
This white wine comes from Piedmont. A blend of two varietals not very usual for this region, Riesling and Gewürztraminer, makes for a wine with kaleidoscopic aromatic nuances and a rich fruit palette. Apricot, lychee and passion fruits mixed with mineral notes making this wine an excellent companion for pumpkin dishes from soups to pies, as well as with crab (sorry no Dungeness this year!) and lobster biscuits.
