Ah, Thanksgiving. A time for family traditions, over-indulgence, and if you’re like us, there’s always plenty of beer.
Last year, we led you through a pairing guide for your Thanksgiving dinner. That list still holds true, and we recommend each of those offerings again. But this year we decided to take your Thanksgiving dishes to a new level: We’re adding beer into them. Here are six beer-friendly Thanksgiving recipes that will satisfy any guest at your table this November.

Thanks to everyone who came out to our (sold out) All Stouts Day tasting with Bell’s Brewery last week! Beers were drank, cheeses were eaten, and knowledge was learned. A list of the pairings can be found below and you can find each of these beers using our Beer Finder. The cheeses were purchased at the Lakeview Whole Foods and should be available depending on seasonality. A big thank you to our lovely hosts, Bitter Pops, and Josh from Underground Meats for providing snacks.
With the spirit of Halloween stirring in the air, the team at Lakeshore Beverage put together a list of 5 beers to try before you die. The list features trusted stalwarts, Bell’s Two Hearted and Duvel, along with a few whales like Founders KBS, Goose Island Bourbon County Stout Coffee, and Gueuze Tilquin Oude Quetsche. If you come across one of these delightful treats in your beer travels, be sure to give them a try.

As the Cubs fight to regain control of the NLCS, Budweiser is bringing in some special beer for the fans at Wrigley Field. Brewed at their original St. Louis brewery, Cubs fans will be able to enjoy “Brewery Fresh” Budweiser at Game 3 of the NLCS. The beer was kegged and shipped on Monday, then delivered to Wrigley on Tuesday morning by our operations team.
The beer will be available at the Budweiser Bleacher Bar where one of Anheuser-Busch’s brewmasters will be on hand so fans can truly “taste Budweiser like a brewmaster”. Watch the video below to go behind-the-scenes of delivering the beer to Wrigley Field.
