Beer and Stove Top Stuffing Pairings

smallerstovetoppairings

We understand that planning your family's Thanksgiving feast involves a lot of coordination, compromise and countless comments from relatives who just happen to do it a little differently...and aren't afraid to grab, shove and show you how. 

There's no dish more debated than stuffing. Some people are traditionalists and prefer the good stuff hot out of the bird's ass. Cornbread? A select few say there's nothing wrong with that. And others say that stuffing without sausage or oysters is just wet bread.  

And regardless of the stuffing skeptics gathered around your table this Thanksgiving, we all can agree that there's nothing better suited to get you through your prep and feast than another beer for god's sake. That's why we gathered our expert panel of sensory analysts and sodium enthusiasts to do a little work for you.

Without further ado, we present to you our 2014 Guide to Pairing our Beers with Stove Top Stuffing

Chicken and Snake Dog IPA

Our tasting panel detected distinct onion notes in this stuffing classic, which were balanced by Snake Dog's notorious pine and subtle vegetal hop bitterness. 

Cornbread and Hefeweizen

The most delicate stuffing in the mix begged for the equally delicate, yet bold, banana and clove notes in our traditional German-style Hefeweizen. 

Pork and K-9 Winter Ale

Any part of the pig naturally lends itself to sweetness, and the rich brown fruit flavors of K-9 create a warming and hearty pairing. 

Savory Herbs and Easy IPA

The culinary wizards at Stove Top keep their exact blend of herbs a secret, but Easy's distinct lemongrass and pine hop notes created an herbaceous heaven in our mouths.

Turkey and Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout

No need to spend hours next to the smoker Uncle Tim built out of an old oil drum. Sipping on a roasty, toasty Pearl Necklace while shoveling in this stuffing will give you all of the smokey goodness you need.
