The grocery stores will be packed this weekend with families preparing for the Thanksgiving holiday. This year, let’s make the dinner table a little more interesting by adding a Great Lakes Brewing Company Variety 12 Pack to the Thanksgiving Day menu! What better way to entertain your guests than complementing your meal with a beer tasting?
Dortmunder Gold Lager, Burning River Pale Ale and Eliot Ness Amber Lager make excellent complements to turkey, stuffing, cranberries and corn bread. Set up some extra glasses (class up the meal with snifter glasses!) with a 4 oz. sample of each beer for your guests to savor as they enjoy the meal you spent so much time preparing.
For my favorite part, dessert, pair with a Commodore Perry India Pale Ale or an Edmund Fitzgerald Porter. Both beers pair really well with chocolate and sweet desserts.
At GLBC, we know every family has a special tradition they follow when preparing the big meal. Whether it’s turkey or pasta, there’s a GLBC brew that can complement any Thanksgiving meal.
GLBC's Variety 12 Pack, found at your local retailer, includes the following beers except Commodore Perry IPA, so pick up a 6-pack of the IPA to round out the tasting:
Dortmunder Gold Lager: Salads, fish and chicken
Eliot Ness Amber Lager: Smoked and barbecued meats, spicy/Cajun dishes and hearty breads
Burning River Pale Ale: Smoky red meats and aromatic cheeses like Stilton and blue
Commodore Perry India Pale Ale: Spicy ethnic dishes, buffalo wings and bold, sweet desserts
Edmund Fitzgerald Porter: Barbecued ribs, steaks, oysters and chocolate
We hope you will add GLBC beers to your shopping list - I will be adding it to mine! As we gather with family and friends this Thanksgiving and give thanks, GLBC would like to thank all of our dedicated and loyal fans for their love and support this upcoming holiday season.
