Thanksgiving Beer Pairings

Thanksgiving Beer Pairings

Below you'll find the beers we're pairing with each of our Thanksgiving meal courses.

Note: We chose these particular beers for two reasons—first, they're relatively widely available throughout the country. Second, they're solid examples of their style.

That said, if you can sub in a beer from a local brewery, do it!

Our Rockaway collab, Needle in a Hopstack: The Perfectly Findable Beer

Update: here's a list of the places that will be tapping Needle In A Hop Stack

When they started BeerMenus back in 2008, our co-founders Will and Eric had a simple goal: they wanted to be able to find their favorite beers whenever they wanted. But while the goal is simple, the execution is not—there are so many places selling so many beers. Getting every beer seller to keep an updated list is, simply, impossible.

In the context of Will and Eric's goal, the take home is straightforward: no matter how hard we work to make updating on BeerMenus easy, no matter how engrained real-time beer updates become in our maturing market, not every beer seller will update their beer list. No beer can be perfectly findable.

Enter Needle in a Hopstack, a beer we brewed with Rockaway Brewing Company. Because it will only show up at places who update their BeerMenus list in real time, it's the world's first-ever perfectly findable beer.


Here's how it came together.

2016 Roundup Part 4: Most Popular Beers

Grimm Lambo Door

Here it is, our fourth and final piece of the BeerMenus 2016 Roundup series.

We think we saved the best for last. Below are the most popular beers of 2016, broken out by where in the US the beer was brewed: East, Midwest, or West.


Full disclosure: we love a lot of these beers. But our palates didn't make any decisions in regards to the list. We determined the rankings by looking at unique BeerMenus page views for each beer.

While we weren't too surprised by most beers on the list, there were a couple that left us flabbergasted. There was one big ol' Stunner in particular.

Congrats to all breweries on the list, and thanks for making these awesome beers part of 2016.
