Munching on some Thanksgiving leftovers?

Munching on some Thanksgiving leftovers? 

Yes, me too.  But we also make some leftovers into other things.  I feel the Bubba montage about shrimp from Forrest Gump coming on.

Forrest Gump


I remember years past my Grandma would serve Turkey, gravy and waffles.   And later on, Turkey sandwiches, turkey salad, an entire thanksgiving meal casserole, hot turkey sandwiches, etc.  We made turkey chowder with the leftovers this year.  But let’s not forget leftover stuffing, I mean if there is such a thing.  I recently tried stuffing waffles. I am way to impatient and need to buy a stronger waffle maker!

Allusion Brewing Company – Baker Street Brown Ale

If you are nibbling on the typical roast turkey dinner your go to is going to be an Belgian Dubbel  or Amber/brown ale. Our go to is Baker Street Brown Ale by Allusion Brewing Company (see above picture). (See Amy’s article: We Can’t Always Be a Glutton Right? – Perfect Portions and Allusion Brewing Company). A full bodied beer like the BSB pairs perfectly with the traditional stuffing and gravy.

The other beer we paired it with was Mad Elf by Troeg’s.  Tis the season!  This happens to be the hostess’s favorite beer so we didn’t even think to show up without a case of Mad Elf for her.  This is a Belgium but a strong dark ale. Mad Elf is another way I feel is a great way to kick off the holiday season. (Grandma SueAnn does love her Mad Elf.)

And as for the leftover pie, I am lucky enough to be nibbling on a pumpkin cheese cake.  I paired it with a Veneration of the Dead from Evergrain.  VotD comes in with a 14.2% ABV to knock you on your butt and keep you humble.  VotD is described on Untapped as “For our 7th Anniversary, a rich and luxurious Imperial Stout aged extensively in apple brandy and bourbon barrels and then conditioned on toasted hazelnuts, cocoa nibs, whole vanilla beans and a touch of maple syrup.”  The light and airy pumpkin cheesecake pairs perfectly with this rich and bold stout.  I really wish I wasn’t out of VotD and same with the Brown Street ale.  Both of these will need restocked in our fridge!

Ben’s note: Thanksgiving this year a very low key get together, but a wonderful day for all. It was Scarlet’s second Thanksgiving, as she just turned 1 on November 11th. I enjoyed several Troegs Independent Brewing beers throughout the course of the day – Mad Elf, Troegenator, and Blizzard of Hops. As well as a nightcap of the Veneration of the Dead. We had gotten this as a crowler from West Connection Beer Vault in Hummelstown / Hershey a few months ago, and it’s still held up well. Grandma SueAnn hosted us, and it was Amy, myself, Scarlet, as well as my parents, and then friends of Amy and SueAnn’s – Deb and Shawn. We had turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, baked corn, stuffing, gravy, and more that I’m forgetting this late at night after a few beers. Scarlet very much enjoyed her second Thanksgiving.

Amy has been very busy wrapping up her walk season, and taking care of the end of the walk season work events for her job, as well as doing so much more, that this is the first she’s really gotten a chance to do her weekly column. Sometimes life (especially life with a one year old) gets to be a bit hectic and gets in the way of writing unfortunately, as we certainly were hoping to get time for her to write this past Sunday and a few other days as well, but unfortunately it didn’t work out. But she was able to find time tonight, while Scarlet slept, and I was in a turkey / beer induced coma watching the boring San Fran – Seattle game.

Cheers All!

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
