The Press Herald has published a round-up of Maine ciders, beers, wines and meads for pairing with your Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow.
Choosing a Maine-made beverage celebrates more than Thanksgiving. It shows just how far Maine has come in 30 years. In the late 1980s, Maine had just one winery that made fruit wine. The state had no other wineries, meaderies, no craft brewery scene, or distilleries of its own. Today there’s a wealth of options. So when you serve a Maine-made beverage with your turkey, you’re celebrating Maine along with the holiday.
At my holiday table I’ll be serving Armenian sparkling wine, pinot noir from Saint Innocent Winery in Oregon, German beer, some excellent Maine cider from Bent Bough, Tandem Coffee and Q Tonic. What beverages are you having with your Thanksgiving meal?
