Have a Great "Sierra Nevada / Stella Artois / Random Aging Barleywines" Kind of Thanksgiving!
Rarely does Stella Artois grace my fridge since I don't much like it. But it's Mom's favorite beer, and there's a six-pack of it waiting for her. I'm using a bottle of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale for the Garlic and Pale Ale Whipped Potatoes, a recipe I got out of the excellent Craft Beer Cook Book I recently reviewed. A few bottles of barley wine are aging away in my "cellar", and it seems like this will be perfect time to open at least a couple of them. Of course, this Thanksgiving will be about family, not beer, but beer helps facilitate this in it's own unique way.
So I'm going to sign out for a few days, but not before wishing you all the best this Thanksgiving. May you all have an enjoyable holiday however you plan to give thanks.
