For most, Thanksgiving is a heady mix of relaxation and stress with uptime and downtime, socializing and food prep, a big parade, televised sports, and marathon food consumption followed by a tryptophan-induced food coma. Thankfully, there’s a perfect beer for every phase of this yearly test of gastrointestinal fortitude.

Morning—AleSmith Speedway Stout

Nothing starts the day quite like a bit of “hair of the dog,” and since you’re not working today, we’ll assume you began celebrating on Wednesday night. Speedway Stout is the perfect blend of hangover cure, pick-me-up, and social lubricant—a shot of locally roasted coffee coupled with sweet roasted malt that swirls into creamy chocolate goodness like a grown-up iced mocha latte. If your family frowns upon drinking beer for breakfast, pour it into a Starbucks cup and they’ll be none the wiser.

Alternative coffee stouts: Dieu Du Ciel! Péché Mortel, Stone Coffee Milk Stout, Founders Breakfast Stout, Copper Kettle Snowed In

Midday—Wicked Weed Pernicious
