CU Beer Weekend Nov 20

It's the week of Thanksgiving. I hope you have your beer planned for Thursday. Garrett Oliver, of Brooklyn Brewery, and the author of The Brewmaster's Table, recommends a Biere de Garde for turkeyday. Two Brothers Domaine DuPage, is probably the localest version of a Biere de Garde that you'll find (it's also quite good).
