5 Beers for Thanksgiving Day

5 Beers for Thanksgiving Day | November 21, 2017

Morning : Allagash White
Effervescent, lightly tart and spicy, Allagash makes a quintessential Belgian-style wheat ale that will certainly brighten up your morning of food prep. Brewed with a proprietary blend of coriander and orange peel, White is rooted in the Belgian tradition of complexity through simplicity. If Beermosas are your thing, start with one of the best Belgian White Ales on the market.
Midday : Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale
Nary a Thanksgiving holiday goes by without Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale showing up to the party. This award-winning American IPA is packed with pine and citrus notes that ring our bell every year. One of the few hop forward holiday ales, Celebration has been brewed since 1981 and is regarded as one of the very first American-style IPAs. Now we’re thirsty.
Dinner : Ommegang Hennepin
Most people have a favorite beverage for their dinner table at Thanksgiving…ours being a wonderfully put together Saison from Brewery Ommegang; Hennepin. This beer hits all the right spots in turkey town by offering a myriad of subtleties to complement and contrast your whole meal. See how well it works with your cheese plate and you’ll find the same joy in pairing it with turkey and stuffing. Pass the potatoes, please.
Dessert : Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout
Pie is key. It’s the ultimate reason to wake up from your post dinner nap. What to drink with it? We find that a smooth and creamy sweet stout pairs perfectly with pumpkin pie and does equally well with pecan. Oat Stouts happen to also be a perfect base for an adult “Beer Float” with chocolate ice cream and almonds!
Nightcap : Lagunitas Brown Shugga
If pie isn’t your bag, a delicious American Strong Ale just might be. Dank bitterness, citrus aromas and slick booze hover above layers of caramel malt sweetness and super drinkability. Be careful with this one folks, Shugga will sew you to your recliner. Grab a blanket and snuggle in. Today was a good day.

Goes great with wings!

Buffalo Bleu Beer: A story. | 4.1.2017


It was happy hour at Consumer’s Beverages. A bunch of us were sitting around enjoying wings and beers, and then it happened… After dunking his wing into an over-flowing cup of bleu cheese and watching it drip slowly from the wing into his lap, Consumer’s Beverages’ Director of Innovation Brad Menza had an epiphany. “I wish I could drink this! We’re going to revolutionize the cheesebeer industry!”

We all stared at each other in disbelief. A beer had been born.

Thus began a journey. From the heights of Mt. Everest to the depths of the Mariana Trench, we scoured the world in search of the finest aged bleu cheese. Aged, matured, spores a plenty….the more the better. We came back to Buffalo and brewed it to make the perfect experience of Buffalo in a glass. The end product is nothing short of pure magic. We’re proud to present to you… Buffalo Bleu Cheese Beer!

Buffalo Bleu Cheese Beer is a creamy, chunky, bacteria-filled beverage with hints of gorgonzola and roquefort.

It comes in at 7.16% ABV and pairs perfectly with pizza, wings, or your occasional Triscuit.

Buffalo Bleu Cheese Beer will be available in 6pks and 12pks. It will not be available in kegs as we find the chunks get stuck rather easily. Having a backyard barbeque or tailgate? Grab a case of Buffalo Bleu Beer Light. Just as good with half the calories!

Look for our Imperial Barrel Aged Buffalo Bleu Cheese Beer coming out next April 1st, 2018!

*If you have gotten this far and haven’t rushed to your local Consumer’s yet to be utterly disappointed, we would like to wish you a Happy April Fool’s. We hope you enjoyed this as much as we did making it.
