Turkey Day Pairing Decision

Yep, after all the reseach and tasting and discussions, et al.... this is what I chose to complement our Thanksgiving Dinner turkey, prepared by the Bingner family in Spartanburg:

Anderson Valley Winter Solstice seasonal ale.  Paired nicely, the caramel and spice flavors added to the malty mouthfeel  (Pale Two-Row, Crystal, and Munich malts were used), moderate use of hops kept the sweetness down and led to a creamy, lingering finish. It even tasted good with the pumpkin pie! I'll remember this for next year.
