    I love session beers. Of course, being from Michigan I have to support Atwater brewery out of the ones you have chosen here.

    • Hi Jon, Thanksgiving Day, foot ball and a good beer are the perfect combination. I do get that about Michigan. I’m more of a wine drinker, but I do love a good beer, as Patrick recommends, every now and then.

    I’m not much of a beer drinker but some of these sound cool. I kinda agree that beer and football on Thanksgiving is a great pairing. Me, I’m more for the champagne choice. 🙂

    • Hi Julie, I actually like both at different times. Sparkling wine for dinner and beer for football… LOL.

    • It is amazing how many choices we now have. Something for everyone.

  • Beer, football and Thanksgiving always go togher on Americian tv shows but I have often wondered if it was really like that so this post has answered that question

    • TV is actually right this time. Thanks for commenting

    • I agree with Patrick. Our “Turkey Day” is great fun. 🙂

    Susan, great guest post. I will admit that our family is not really football fans but I love the pairings. Great job Patrick.

    • I’m not so much either, but my Husband is. So the beer pairings work well for both of us for different reason. 😀

  • Sounds like anyone wanting to enjoy the football and have a great beer should follow Patrick’s suggestions. In my country beer has always been associated with football as well.

    • Hi Susan, I would agree on both counts. I think beer and football are synonymous in most all countries. 🙂

  • It’s quite a science! Amazing to see how many different kinds of brews are available. I wasn’t aware that there’s beer with low ABV…Nice information. Great post! Besides, who wants to risk filling up on fluids when there’s soooo much more to partake in.

    • Hi Shirla, It really is, isn’t it? I do love the variety. I, like you, was not aware of a low ABV beer either. 🙂

  • Interesting, I hadn’t heard of the “sessions” beers movement, but it makes sense because the goal of drinking beer isn’t always to get blitzed :). I’ve actually had Saint Arnolds a few times, they’re slowly trying to get into the New Orleans market… it’s good stuff.

    • Hey There Dan, I hadn’t either, but that’s no surprise. I’m not much of a sports fan… LOL. I prefer wine over beer but I have to say, these do sound pretty darn good. 🙂

    Nice, however, beer aint my thing, but I love the way pair the beer with the teams! Patrick is really talented, I must say

    • Hi Tope, I hear you. I do like a good beer every now and then, but I do prefer a good wine if given the choice. 🙂

  • What a fun idea! Great post for beer enthusiasts. I enjoyed the commentary about the local breweries “paired” with the football teams in town. Unfortunately, some fans are a little too enthusiastic about their beers. I don’t know about football teams, but many pro baseball and basketball teams stop the sale of beer at some point in the game. Maybe the concessions should sell more of the low-alcohol beer that Patrick recommends.

    • Hi Jeannette, I agree with you. Patrick did such a nice job with this post.

      The sports fans can get out of hand at times and I can see why they would shut off the sale of alcohol at a certain point. I think your idea is a good one. Who knows, that may be in the future. 🙂

    • The tricky thing is even too much of a little thing can be too much.

  • Wow… I love the way you did this post! 🙂

    • Hi Cheryl, I did too. He is always so creative with these. 🙂
