The Black Abbey: Guy Fawkesblack abbey

Remember, Remember, The Black Abbey Guy Fawkes of November? This seasonal brew is a perfect pairing with your traditional bird. The English Brown Ale blends English malts and American hops to create slightly smoky well-rounded brown ale. With only 18 IBUs this subtle hoppy brown is sure to highlight the main course at any dinner table.

Hofbräu Dunkelhofbrau

Add some European flair to the dinner table with Hofbräu Dunkel. Dark beer existed in Bavaria long before light beer. In the states dunkles have become as American as apple pie! Hence, this is the perfect pairing to your Thanksgiving apple pie. Coincidence? I think not!

Sam Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stoutsam-smith

Beer, chocolate, and pie, Oh My! Sam Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout is a dry, roasty, malty beer that helps accentuate the flavors of pumpkin and pecan pie. The gently roasted organic chocolate malt and organic cocoa create a smooth and creamy finish. Perfect nightcap with friends and loved ones.

Boulder Beer Company: Shake Chocolate Porterboulderbeerco

If you don’t like the traditional pumpkin or apple pies for dessert try Boulder Shake Chocolate Porter. This beer presents a unique twist on the traditional robust American Porter. This dark black colored beer is rich with sweet aromatics and flavors of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Brewed with cacao nibs gives this beer a chocolate flavor that will satisfy any chocoholics’ sweet tooth.

New Heights: BATCH #1 Coffee IPAnewheights

Too stuffed for pie right after dinner? Enjoy coffee after a satisfying meal? Try New Heights BATCH #1 Coffee IPA. This Nashville Born brewery’s Rye IPA is one of my favorites. In collaboration with Crema, this beer is infused with coffee from Finca Las Delicias (El Salvador). Neighborhood-roasted beans display citrus, chocolate, and caramel which accentuate the hops to create a uniquely balanced IPA.. The tasting room is now open as of November 19, 2016, New Heights has a great selection of craft brews. With family in town stop by Saturday, November 26, from 12-10 and say hello to your new craft beer neighbors.
