Thanksgiving BYOB: Turkey and Beer Pairings
Around here, Fall blusters in with buckets of rain; it shakes the trees and shellacks the streets yellow, red, and brown. It’s the time of year when we dust off our “hunker down and cozy up” skills, as we gather our Portland community and head indoors, growlers full of something to keep the damp chill at bay.
It’s also that time when calendars begin to flood with holiday plans, parties, and if you’re lucky, a hootenanny or two. Whether with family, friends, friends who are family, newfound pals or old, it’s the season to toast with joy and gratitude, appreciating good times with the people that bring out the best in us.
As you ponder what to bring with your appetizer or side dish, consider a snazzy twist on the BYO. Instead of the stand-by bottle of wine or six pack, buy a PGC growler and fill it with whatever the occasion calls for, from mulled wine to hot cider to your favorite winter ale.
Ready to revolutionize the BYO, but looking for a creative clue or two about what to fill your PGC growler with this holiday season?
We’ve surveyed friends, employees and our Instagram followers asking them to recommend a few of their favorite pairings that will seal your title as this year's Beverage Virtuoso.
Let's not forget the Cider!
However you're celebrating the holiday, we wish you a good one as we give thanks for good friends, family, you, our outstanding customers, and amazing craft beer.
