Not only is this delicious, but it's good for you too!

When we were wondering what to serve with this delicious chicken, we asked Heather Burns, our very own expert in all things beer and proprietor at St. Gambrinus Beer Shoppe in Brooklyn, NY. Heather said we should try Zombie Dust by the 3 Floyds Brewery. She said that it is refreshing and made with all Citra hops that have a citrus-like characteristic.  Zombie Dust has a nicely balanced bitterness. Heather says it is a great beer to enjoy on it's own or versatile enough to pair with lots of different foods. She especially loves a hoppy beer with spicy food!

It's time for Thanksgiving, delicious turkey, your favorite pie, football and beer!

When it comes to beer, there’s no one better to talk to than our very own Heather Burns. Not only is she responsible for keeping The Zweben Team on course, Heather is and expert on all things beer. Heather and her husband Ray Darmstadt are the proprietors at the St. Gambrinus Beer Shoppe on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, NY.  Here are Heather's thoughts on the holiday and beer.

I look forward to that huge, comforting, sweet and savory Thanksgiving meal every year.  For me, a lot of what makes holidays so much fun with my family is our mutual appreciation of good drinks and good laughs.  We drink more wine than beer in my family, but I've never really thought wine tasted particularly good with Thanksgiving foods. 

The less acidic quality of beer is better suited to pairing with turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, sweets like cranberry sauce, and all of the fixings!  Plus, it's fun getting my parents in their 70s and 80s to taste different beers.  While Mom has decided she likes IPAs since they smell like flowers, my step-Dad is still digging in his heels over English ales.

If you would like to do something different this year and pair your Thanksgiving meal with beer instead of wine, I've got some great suggestions. 

Allagash Saison

If you know you prefer a lighter (colored) beer, this is a really terrific choice.  Allagash is one of my favorite breweries.  It's an established brewery in Maine and the Saison is their classic, farmhouse-style ale.  It's easy drinking, lightly bitter with a bit of spice.  This would go well with a variety of foods and is just a lovely beer for daily drinking!

Greenport Harbor Black Duck Porter

If you are a Guinness drinker and would like to have something darker to pair with your meal, this Long Island brewery's porter is a perfect choice.  This is a delicious, rich beer with hints of roasted coffee, with a nice dry finish. It can easily pair with both the Thanksgiving meal and all of the holiday pies too!

I like to mix up my pie apples. While a combination of Honey Crisp and McIntosh apples makes me, any combination of apples that you love to eat will be equally delicious.

You'll need dough for a two-crust pie. I like to make my own but, if making pastry seems too scary, you can use store bought dough.

Now for the good stuff. This pie filling is easy and delicious. There's a reason they say it's as easy as pie!

Enjoy after dinner, for a late night snack, or have a slice for breakfast!

When it comes to a late night snack, we asked our resident beer expert and proprietor at St. Gambrinus Beer Shoppe, Heather Burns, what she would serve with our rockin' apple pie. Heather says we should pair our pie with an Allagash Curieux.  Allagash is one of the most respected, established craft breweries in the US, founded in 1995 and is located in Portland, ME.  This is a Tripel aged for 7 weeks in bourbon barrels and then blended with a fresh portion of Tripel. It’s smooth and slightly boozy with notes of coconut and vanilla.  Perfect to pair with apple pie a la mode!
