      What better time of the year to remind ourselves of the joy a special bottle of wine can add to the dinner table surrounded by family and close friends. An occasion that focuses on the seasonal crops of the land that includes root vegetables and fruit that have just been harvested and will be prepared by millions throughout the United States to celebrate Thanksgiving.  
So it makes perfect sense to also celebrate another harvested fruit, the grape.  As wine pairing goes, Thanksgiving may be the most anxiety-induced meal of the year. It's fraught with high expectations, and the whole production has to be better than good, because the guests are putting your meal up against their own interpretation of tradition.  Make your dinner table unique by adding your own special touch by choosing just the right wines to make your menu really stand out.

Unknown-6“This is my hot dog, it’s here to stay… and for a reason”, proclaims brewer Brian Strumke, as he raises his can of Classique, the newest beer released by his four-year-old company, Stillwater Artisanal.  Strumke, a Baltimore native, describes Classique as “an ale that’s actually a deconstruction of a macro-lager”, created using the same recipe as Natty Boh. He is proud to admit that it’s the first of his beers his father was willing to drink, a mark of success at creating a brew for the masses.
