Pairing Beers with Thanksgiving Dinner by Beer Specialist Bill Catron


Thanksgiving and Beer

It's been documented in voyage journals that the Mayflower abandoned its voyage and landed in Plymouth due to running out of beer. That one of the first establishments constructed within the Pilgrim colony was a brewery, and that most of its passengers were also separatist farmers, poorly educated and without social or political standing. Given these facts, do you honestly think that they drank wine at the very first Thanksgiving in 1621? Hell no! They drank beer!  For more information on Thanksgiving and Beer, go to Celebrating with BEER this Holiday Season by: Alström Bros
