Thanksgiving is already here and we could not be more excited! It’s one of our favourite holidays of the year because let’s face it, we have a lot to be thankful for… Our loving family, great friends, and of course our favourite golden beverage #Beer.
No matter how you plan to celebrate this wonderful weekend, you have tons of beer options available to pair with all that delicious food you will be eating. Here are some great options to consider when heading over to your local Beer Store. Happy Thanksgiving!
Anderson Craft Ales – Amber Ale
Anderson Craft Ales’ Amber is an enticing combination of caramel, toffee, biscuit, bread and malt notes, perfectly balanced with a touch of North American hop character.
Broadhead Brewing Co. – Grindstone Amber Ale
Broadhead’s Grindstone Amber is a super tasty, rich-coloured amber ale that is hell-bent on hitting the spot. It has just the right balance of caramel malts and finished with a sweet sharpness,. It’s a refreshing medium body ale.
Mill St. Brewery – Vanilla Porter
Mill St. Brewery’s Vanilla Porter is a great cold weather beer. The vanilla extract used is cold pressed from vanilla orchid bean pods giving it over 250 individual flavor notes resulting in a attractive depth of flavor.
Muskoka Brewery – Harvest Ale
Muskoka Brewery’s Harvest Ale marks the end of the growing season and the process of gathering mature crops from the fields. This year, Muskoka Brewery worked with local farmers across Ontario to brew a true reflection of Ontario’s harvest in their beer. Prepare to taste malt forward, soft biscuit flavours that transform into notes of mango, grapefruit, and stone-fruit.
Beaus All Natural Brewing Co. – Fall Mix Pack
Beaus All Natural Brewing Co., has a Fall Mix Pack that includes their crisp and refreshing Lug Tread Lagered Ale, along with three other interesting and tasty brews we think you’ll enjoy too: like their Maple Rush Porter, Dortmunder, and their CDN Pale Ale.
The Maple Rush has a heady mixture of black malt and espresso notes that are softened by sweet maple wood impressions, while their Dortmunder offers floral, herbal and malty notes with a flavour balanced grainy cereal sweetness offset by firm hop bitterness. The CDN Pale Ale is a medium-bodied beer with a silky mouthfeel, moderate bitterness and big fruit flavours.
It’s a fun variety to sample or share with friends, all in one handy-dandy box!
