Ultimate 6er | A Beer For Each Family Member This Thanksgiving

November 25, 2020 |

With a deep love for family and friends and food, Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday (until someone brings up politics). It also means that afterwards, I can blast All I Want for Christmas Is You as much as I want and no one can say anything.

PorchDrinking’s Thanksgiving Beer Pairings

November 19, 2019 |

Thanksgiving is nearly upon us. Or—as your aunt insists on calling it—Turkey Day. Of course, this day involves a lot more to eat than just a large bird and therein lies the challenge when it comes to Thanksgiving beer pairings. Which beers are flexible enough to work well with the cornucopia of flavors and textures we enjoy on this holiday?

Many guides to pairing with Thanksgiving dinner suggest course-by-course pairings with one beer matched with one particular dish. No one actually eats like that though. We pile our plates with as much food as we can fit and then dive in. Rather than match beers with dishes, I’ve outlined a beer pairing list that divides the day into stages and offers suggestions for each phase.

Ultimate 6er | A Can of Thanksgiving

November 16, 2017 |

I can hear my mom on Thanksgiving Day yelling, “EJ, get in here! It’s time to eat!” But times have changed since then, so I better not hear that nickname today. For any future yellings, please refer to me as Eric.

So let’s imagine for a second that instead of a Thanksgiving turkey on a silver platter, there was a can of beer. But what would that beer be? And say for instance instead of a green bean casserole, you guessed it, another can of beer? What beer would take its place? This is the Ultimate 6er for Thanksgiving, just in case your food happens to be all beer.

It’s also that time of the year when hordes of people will make the pilgrimage out to shop on Black Friday. Instead of fighting through thousands of people to get that 4k TV or Bourbon County beer that you gotta have, shop online, opt for an adventure outside, or even better check out one of the many Black Friday beer events going on around the Denver metro area. My good friend Cory has put together a sick list of all the happenings around Denver as well as be sure to check out the calendar of other events going on this week including the grand opening of Green Mountain Beer Company.

Ultimate 6er | Beers to Pair with Your Thanksgiving Meal

November 21, 2016 |

Holiday season is underway and it’s almost time to gather with family and friends to overindulge in the largest meal most of us will eat all year. Hours upon hours are dedicated to cooking an assortment of dishes. Each dish has been tried and tested for years, coming together into a well-thought-out, complex meal. Some recipes have been passed down from generation to generation, and some recipes were probably Googled the day before in an effort to find a new tasty dish to wow the family.

Cooking with Beer | Cran-bozen Sauce

December 11, 2014 |

I’m well aware that it is 2 weeks past Thanksgiving and I’m just now posting a cranberry sauce recipe. Up on the east coast, our holiday turned into quite the event when all the power went out. Not only did we have to prepare for 30 people coming over to our feast, I needed to find out how to post this recipe. Unfortunately, no electricity means no wifi so I saved this cranberry dream until now. I’m confident everyone at your Christmas party is going to love it.

Faking Adulthood | Preparing for Thanksgiving as a 20 Something

November 24, 2014 |

Thanksgiving is my second favorite holiday, ranking only slightly behind America Day (July 4). What makes these two holidays so great? Well they share several key elements that distinguish them from the rest of the pack; the general acceptance of consuming massive levels of food, celebrating the founding of this great country/continent (I like to think of Thanksgiving as the O.G. America Day), and beer… lots of beer. And what Thanksgiving lacks in fireworks, it makes up in turkey, pie and football. However, the combination of family, friends, and gluttony can always yield potentially volatile results, so I thought I’d help you navigate the somewhat treacherous aspects of this time honored holiday with five tips for preparing for Thanksgiving as a 20 something.
