Rye IPA homebrew, Great Fermentations' recipe.
My host requested "something hoppy" so we'e got a bottle of Three Floyds Dreadnaught, and a bottle of Two Brothers Heavier Handed IPA - but we're also bringing Avery 15 (ale brewed with spices, herbs, and figs) , Avery 16 (a saison), and then the random bombers I didn't get to at Tailgate for Nothing - 3Fs/Dogfish Popskull, Hebrew 13, Boulevard Smokestack Two Jokers, and maybe some Lost Abbey stuff.For HBG Thanksgiving, I've finally found a bottle of Bruery Autumn Maples (Belgian Brown with yams, molasses, maple syrup and spices) and we'll also be bringing more of the random.This year it's not as much about pairing as getting rid of beer.
Ha I typed Maples instead of Maple.

growlers of homebrew india brown, american red, and pale ale.my family isn't really that big on beer, so it's mainly for me. i tend to go through a fair bit of beer during family functions, for some reason...
I'm starting the day with a Hazed and Infused, moving to wine with dinner at the family's house.
Sun King Double Chocolate Stout!
Mayflower thanksgiving ale, my yeti ris clone homebrew comes out later
New Glarus Raspberry Tart. Big, big hit with the family.
sun king: tulip wit, cream ale, big esb and two batches of homebrewed cider
A growler of nut brown ale from Oaken Barrel.--Jamey & Libbie
Goose Island Sofie with dinner, and a growler of Sun King's XX Chocolate Stout for dessert.
With dinner my wife and I split a 22oz Goose Island Sophie. It was spectacular. Leading up we had Founders Harvest, Left Hand Milk Stout, Gumballhead, and Dark Horse Oatmeal Stout.
The household tradition is to have a big afternoon meal at Vietnam Kitchen, a restaurant in Louisville. Great Vietnamese food, but not too much of a beer list, so I've waited until returning home to tear into a growler of NABC Solidarity, our seasonally released Baltic Porter.
Just finished a growler of Teddy Bear Kisses with some help. Got some strange looks from the family. After finishing this glass I am going to have my first Sierra Nevada Celebration of the year. Happy Holidays!!!
Just like Jim, I rocked a NG Raspberry Tart during dinner. Also similar results with the family as well.Since I'm thankful for New Glarus being so awesome, I popped an Old English Porter and a Cran-bic. I'm thinking of having a night cap with an '06 BCS or an Imperial Stout Trooper.
Had some Sierra Nevada Celebration, Bell's Christmas Ale and Moerlein 5th and Vine. All went very well with dinner!
I enjoyed some Sprecher Winter Brew with my turkey!
Little late but I was rockin' a Mikkeller Simcoe Single Hop. It was really great. I want to try others because I think it is a series.
