Friends, let's raise a glass to the noble turkey, so odd-looking in life and yet so gosh darn tasty on our Thanksgiving table. More than likely, I will be toasting this year's bird with something dark and malty instead of dry and fruity. Beer has special affinity with the roasted, nutty, and deeply caramelized flavors of this holiday that I love. Want my two cents? Serve a few good beers with dinner alongside your reds and whites.
