Beer Instead of Wine

Cellars Wine & Spirits recommends beer pairings.
Beer selections that pair well with your turkey dinner.

When you think of a Thanksgiving meal, you might think of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy accented with a pinot noir. However, if you want to change up your meal, try pairing your feast with beer. We talked to Cellars Wine & Spirits of Plymouth for recommendations to make your meal delicious and unique.

“The best kind of beer would be one that offsets that dinner dryness,” says store manager Brian Clark. “There are lots of types to choose from, but I would recommend a wheat beer or even one of our sour beers.”

For a wheat, Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat is a good choice. “The light citrus along with a hint of banana is quite refreshing,” Clark says.

Clark also recommends Rodenbach from Belgium, which is one of the most awarded sours available. “Not being a big fan of sours, I do enjoy this one. Its bright fruit and welcomed tartness would complement the usual dryness of turkey and the saltiness of ham,” he says.
