Let Us Give Thanks….for (and with) Beer

We applaud the philosophy behind this article.
That being said, we take umbrage with their suggestions.

Hence, let us offer our own recommendations for the Rooseveltan feast. Read the article, then return here for our idea of a corrective.

Aperitif Beers.
Orval Trappiste. The ultimate aperitif. Serve it in Champagne flutes and wow your wine-snob friends.
Option B: Unibroue Ephemere. The bubbly-cum-apple will make your culinary heart go pitter-patter.

Hors d’oeuvres Beers.
Fuller’s ESB. The original ESB, with characteristic English subtlety and understatement.
Option B: Trumer Pils. Did someone say smoked salmon?

The Main Course.
Trois Monts Bière de Garde. Any Bière de Garde will do, but this one’s our personal favorite. And we do hope you’re considering a heritage-breed turkey this year.
Option B: An artisanal cider1, such as Dupont. Here at St. Cecilia, we make our own, but hear us loud a clear: we are NOT talking about Hornsby’s or Cider Jack!

Dessert.
Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. Dessert in a glass. Try it with apple pie a la mode.
Option B: Dogfish Head Punkin Ale. One of the few truly great pumpkin beers currently on the market.

Notes.
1. Yes, the authors of this blog are perfectly aware that cider is not, strictly speaking, beer. Sue us.
