Happy Thanksgiving

I hope you all are enjoying your turkey day. A Thanksgiving for us includes finding the right themed beer for the occasion. There aren't a whole lot of beers available in Albuquerque that seem to fit the bill, though. You could have a beer from Jolly Pumpkin Brewing, all Belgian style ales. Or maybe an actual pumpkin beer from Buffalo Bill's, Sea Dog or Shipyard. Other than that, I can't think of locally available beers for this holiday. I can't even think of anything that doesn't have the word pumpkin involved in it. Too bad we don't get Dogfishhead Indian Brown Ale here, or anything from Mayflower Brewing. Even a Crazy Horse Malt Liquor would be suitable today, if we could get it. You may have get a little more interpretive with beer names- like how about drinking Stone's Double Bastard in honor of your brother-in-law's annoying twins who are making a commotion at the kids' table?

We will be having Pilgrim's Dole from New Holland Brewing, which we bought in South Carolina back in August. We were going to age this one longer but the name is making us drink it now...I'm sure we will be thankful!
