Thanksgiving, or as my husband, poodle and I have dubbed it, "Drunksgiving", is just the best, right? You can eat and drink all day long, and if you don't take that afternoon turkey nap, you're not doing it right! Not to mention taking the day to be thankful for that food, drink, that nap, and FAMILY.
What's for dessert!? Well, whether you have an actual dessert or not, nothing beats finishing the meal with an Imperial Stout. Specifically, New Heights Navel Gazer. A big, rich stout clocking in at 9.4% abv, this bad boy is not for the faint of heart. It's bursting with mouth filling flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, and licorice that would pair nicely with any chocolate based dessert or just an after dinner cigar. One of my favorite local beers! And if you can find the coconut variant....jump on it. This beer is great to drink now or age. But I suggest living in the now. ;)
That's all folks!
Lots of great beers to pair with the bird this year, it's hard to narrow it down to just 5! I hope you will let me know what you're drinking.
