Pick Beer & Cider This Thanksgiving

We're just a couple weeks away from Thanksgiving and if I had to bet, I'd guess your mind is starting to turn to images of crispy Brussels sprouts, glistening brown turkey, and fluffy mountains of mashed potatoes. But as your mental shopping list starts to build, don't forget the booze. This most essential contributor to a convivial holiday table is too important to leave to Aunt Becky, who may or may not bring the cheapest bottle of wine from the 7-11 closest to your house. You'll want the good stuff, and there's nothing better than an elegant bottle of beer or cider for your dinner table.

Some recommendations:

Commons Petite Classique
Saisons are some of the food-friendliest beers around, and Petite Classique is no exception. This is a super dry, super refreshing take on the style with a gentle spiciness from an addition of pink peppercorns. It's lively and bright enough to avoid weighing you down amidst all that rich food, and has enough carbonation to leave your palate refreshed and ready for your next bite.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Logsdon Kili Wit
The soft and citrusy flavors of Logsdon's Kili Wit are the perfect partner to a plate of white meat turkey, punchy cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes. Its orangey, gently-spiced aromatics fit in neatly with the delicate turkey breast while softening the tart 'n' tannic bite of the cranberry sauce, all while offering a refreshing brightness to keep you going over a marathon display of gluttony.
Now available in 375ml and 750ml bottles and 1/6bbl kegs.

Renaissance Great Punkin
Medium bodied and gently sweet, this beer focuses on caramelized malts, roasted pumpkin flavor, and just the right amount of warming spices. It's toasty and drinkable stuff with upwards of 7% ABV to keep you warm as the temperature drops. Its deeply bready, caramelly malt character finds a perfect partner in dark meat turkey, pecan pie, nutty stuffing, and of course, roasted squash.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Dragon's Head Columbia Crabapple
Fall is apple season, and there's no more seasonally-appropriate a beverage than cider for your Thanksgiving celebrations. Dragon's Head's new Columbia Crabapple belongs on the table, with a zippy acidity and an elegant tannic structure to keep things balanced. It's just a touch off dry, which helps it work with the wide range of food on your table, from prime rib and green bean casserole to sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Frederiksdal Sur Lie
For the ideal post-meal sipper, look to Frederiksdal's Sur Lie. This is a rich, insanely delicious wine made entirely from Danish cherries, with a dense complexity, balanced sweetness, and bold tannin and acidity. It will be like nothing your guests have ever tasted before and everyone seems to love it.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

We've got a lovely selection of options to fill your glasses this season, from the classically rich, dark and dense, to the sour, barrel-aged, and hoppy. It's a far-reaching selection of festive, exceptionally-tasty beers you're sure to enjoy. Check 'em out!

Featured Holiday Beers:

Libertine Stocking Stuffer
Stocking Stuffer starts it's life as a rich stout made funky in the typical Libertine fashion. It's fermented with a mixed culture and aged in spirits barrels before being blended into the complex, satisfying beer that has made its way into bottles for you. A tart, layered, and delicious new tradition.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

La Cibeles Madrilen Ale
A warming amber barleywine built for drinking (well--sipping--it's 12% ABV) around the fireplace. Rich, dense and fruity with caramel, cherry, and citrusy aromatics and a smooth, velvety texture.
Now available in 30L KeyKegs.

Mikkeller Hoppy Lovin' Christmas Red Wine BA 2012
An intriguing vintage release! Brewed in 2012 with ginger and pine needles, a batch of Hoppy Lovin' Christmas was then aged in red wine barrels, where it took on a very gentle tartness and a vinous complexity. Very unusual and tasty!

Fresh Hop Seizoen and More from Logsdon!

There's no denying that "farmhouse ales" are everywhere these days. But what is a farmhouse ale if it's brewed in a business park by the freeway? That's certainly a question worth considering, but know this: when Logsdon Organic Farmhouse Ales calls their beers "farmhouse ales," it's not some kind of beery romantic fiction. Indeed, the red barn by the sprawling fields you see in the shadow of Mt. Hood painted on each Logsdon label is actually where their lovely beers are made.

These are authentic farmhouse beers, packed with rustic yeast character and made with skill from high quality organic ingredients. They represent everything you'd hope to get from a farmhouse ale, and they don't see a business park until they arrive at our warehouse door. We've just received a load of some of our favorites from Logsdon, including this year's much-anticipated release of Fresh Hop Seizoen. Check it out!
Now Available:
Fresh Hop Seizoen
Wet-hopped with several varieties of organic Oregon-grown hops, Fresh Hop Seizoen is a perfect fall refresher. It's bright, herbaceous, and zesty, with fresh citrus oil aromatics alongside a grassy earthiness and a complex fermentation profile.
99 on RateBeer!
Now available in 750ml bottles & 30L Dolium kegs (NO DEPOSIT).
Shilpi's F'Alt
A toasty, malty delight of an altbier with a slightly roasty edge, satisfying richness, and just enough hop bitterness to keep things balanced. Brand new and tasting delicious!
Now available in 30L Dolium kegs (NO DEPOSIT).
Szech 'n' Brett
Szech 'n' Brett is a Lime Ventures favorite--a Brettanomyces-fermented saison subtly-spiced with Szechuan peppercorn. Super complex and like nothing else out there.
96 on RateBeer!
Now available in 750ml bottles & 30L Dolium kegs (NO DEPOSIT).

It's Pumpkin Beer Season!

Smell that, folks? That's the smell of slowly rotting leaves, overly-spiced lattes, and the stale-beer-on-concrete aroma of last weekend's Oktoberfest parties. That's right, it's officially fall, and it's time to stock up on pumpkin beer. We've got several great options in stock, for the lover of the classic malt-and-spice-driven examples you're likely thinking of, and for those that are looking for something new.

We've got something here for everyone, so why not crack open a bottle or pour yourself a glass of one of these fine pumpkin beers and fill your nostrils with one of our favorite autumn scents?

Now Available:

Jolly Pumpkin Los Vivos y Los Muertos
Brewed exclusively for us lucky Californians, Los Vivos y Los Muertos is a 4.2% ABV sour ale brewed with pumpkin and lime. Get it?! It's a drinkable celebration of our partnership with America's first all-sour brewery, arriving just in time for Dia de Los Muertos. It's an ultra-refreshing beer, of course, perfect for those random hotter-than-summer West Coast fall days that we all know will rear their heads soon enough. Bright acidity, zesty aromatics, and so delicious.
Now available in 1/6 bbl kegs.

Jolly Pumpkin La Parcela
Also available from Jolly Pumpkin, La Parcela is a similarly delightful break from the caramelly spiced amber beers so associated with that big orange squash. It's dry and sour, noticeably focused on earthy and tart yeast character amidst bright citrus, cocoa, and (a touch of) spiced flavor.
99 on RateBeer!
Now available in 750ml bottles & 1/6 bbl kegs.

Renaissance Great Punkin
Medium bodied and gently sweet, this beer focuses on caramelized malts, roasted pumpkin flavor, and just the right amount of warming spices. It's toasty and drinkable stuff with upwards of 7% ABV to keep you warm as the temperature drops.
