Turkey, Mashed Taters, Stuffing & Beer
Penn Brewing, outta Pittsburgh, crafts some great brews. Penn Pilsner and Penn Dark are two that I recommend picking up for consumption. Neither is high in alcohol, so you can drink a sixer without getting sloppy and punching Uncle Milton in the face for questioning your choice of employment for the umpteenth time.
Penn Pilsner is a Vienna lager and is their flagship brand. It is smooth, mellow and full bodied, with delicate hop aroma. Goes well with any food group, including cold turkey sandwiches with cranberry sauce on a potato roll.
Penn Dark is considered a dunkel, and is extremely tasty and highly decorated (many awards). Munich and various roasted malts give it a very malty, rich flavor with a hint of burnt flavor. 100% imported Hallertau hops, with moderate bitterness and aroma.
