Turkey Eggs with Craft Beer Cranberry Sauce – What to do with Thanksgiving Leftovers



As any good American knows, the day after Thanksgiving is the real holiday. Finally all of that pesky family time and thankfulness is out of the way and Black Friday is here. You’re probably just waking up or just arriving home from a morning of shopping, deals and hopefully minimal trampling. Either way, there’s a fridge full of leftovers that aren’t going to eat or artfully arrange themselves. Instead of just throwing everything on a plate and recreating last nights dinner, we decided to try something a little different this year and make “turkey eggs”. keep reading...

The Five Beers of Thanksgiving


It’s almost time for Thanksgiving. Get ready to sit around a table with family, give thanks for all the wonderful things in your life and eat and drink an absurd amount. Everyone knows what foods a traditional Thanksgiving feast consists of, but what would an all beer meal look like? Think Violet Beauregarde in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, only instead of her whole meal being in the form of bubble gum yours is more on the liquid side. And hopefully minus turning blue and having to be rolled away from the table, but we make no promises there. keep reading...

The Gobblette: Getting Creative with Thanksgiving Leftovers & Eggs


20131201-180109.jpgTurkey Day is over but your fridge is likely still filled with leftovers. Instead of making ourselves a Gobblenator, like we did last year, Kevin came up with a way to combine brunch and Thanksgiving this year. Without further adieu we present you the Gobblette, the most American omelet you ever did cook (and eat).

First off, heat up a plate of all the leftovers you want to eat in omelet form. We opted to go with stuffing, creamed spinach, corn soufflé, ham, turkey and cranberry sauce on the side. keep reading...

Sayonara Squash San aka Farewell to Pumpkin Beer


Days are shorter, most trees have shed their leaves and pumpkin beers are in their twilight for the year…

Well, that was quick! Fall really is flying by. This years pumpkins have been carved, turkeys have been cooked and leftovers have been consumed. Christmas lights, trees and decorations are starting to pop up everywhere. Though it is still November, it seems fall is behind us and winter is about ready swoop in and cover us in blankets of snow. With winter comes a whole new offering of seasonal brews, but it does sadly mean that it is time to close the door on pumpkin beers (for this year, anyway). Over the past couple of weeks bars and brewpubs have been tapping their final kegs of pumpkin ale, making way for the post-Thanksgiving season of darker, rich, warming, winter and holiday focused beers. keep reading...

Thanksgiving Leftovers: The Sandwich (Plus Beer Pairing)


Thanksgiving Leftovers

left·o·ver [left-oh-ver] adj. Remaining as an unused portion or amount. n. 1. A remnant or an unused portion. 2. leftovers Food remaining from a previous meal.

Leftovers are a huge part of the Thanksgiving tradition. For some people these delicious remnants are better than the actual Turkey-Day dinner itself. Let’s face it, the meal you slaved over is going to taste about 1 million (dollars) times better with your in-laws and relatives out of the house. Seriously, holidays are stressful so enjoy the fruits of your labor in peace. We won’t tell your aunt Edna.

This year we had several traditional items remaining and decided to combine them in a non-traditional way. We used several ingredients: stuffing, turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce to make a sandwich on bakery rye bread. This delicious monstrosity was dubbed, “the Gobble-nator”, and we try to use an ominous voice when mentioning it. Such a powerful sandwich commands both awe and respect. While we admit slapping eveything together to create a thanksgiving sandwich may not be totally rare these days, as this article from the Village Voice shows, it isn’t super common and is a great way to put extra to use. The ingredients used are limited only to what you have on hand or you think your guts can handle. So take a breath, get those leftovers out and build your own Gobble-nator! keep reading...
