It's not too late, you know.

You can still head to any store and make Thanksgiving 2018 one you and your friends will never forget as you're invited to please read on for the best beers to pair with every side dish, every course, every phase, every stage of your Thanksgiving meal.

It begins when guests arrive, the suggested beer of choice is Curieux from Allgash, a bourbon barrel-aged Belgian Tripel.

Next, during some NFL action or games of your own around the camp, you'll need a bevvy that goes down smooth. The recommended choice here is Pilsner Urquell. It is one of the best beers out there. The light, amber beer has a clean taste that goes down almost too easily.

For the first Thanksgiving feast course, Upslope’s Spruce Tip IPA is just the beer to drink here. According to the experts at, the beer here needs to be both bold and light as it's an indication of things to come later. They take this quite seriously don't they?

For the big "reveal" phase of the Thanksgiving meal, it is suggested to polish off a light and subtle-yet-powerful beer that goes with a wide array of flavors and textures. This is where Saison Dupont comes in. The Belgian masterpiece is "versatile and freakin’ delicious."

At this point it's a good idea to drink some water. In fact it's probably best to alternate a glass of water for every beer consumed, but that's your call.
