Thankfulness to the Maximus

A single-serving Thanksgiving doesn’t have to skimp on flavor. If you’re just cooking for one or two, try incorporating these creative variations and modern takes on traditional favorites. Just because you’re having a small meal doesn’t mean you can’t have big beers (and big flavors). Maximize your beer pairings alongside these scaled-down dishes for a flavorful full-send.

Lagunitas Maximus Colossal IPA

Pair it with:

  • Roast butternut squash
  • Cranberry orange relish
  • Sauteed spinach with lemon honey dressing
