Save room for dessert (beer). Try these beer and pie pairings when you polish off your Thanksgiving feast.

Jester King Le Petit Prince with Cherry Pie (Austin, Texas)

Jester King’s table beer, Le Petit Prince, will complement a cherry pie made from sweet or sour cherries, or just about any item on the Thanksgiving table for that matter. This delicate, highly attenuated ale is brewed with two-row malt, wheat, Czech Saaz hops, and farmhouse yeast. It has a bright, dry finish that makes it versatile, and extremely drinakable at only 2.8 percent ABV.

Commons Brewery Urban Farmhouse with Apple Pie (Portland, Oregon)

Mirror the funky earthiness of apples with a hops-forward farmhouse ale from Common Brewery in Portland, Oregon. This golden Belgian-style ale is another beer that would pair well with most foods at the Thanksgiving table—it’s a drinkable 5.3 percent ABV with a fresh floral nose and a refreshingly dry, hoppy finish.

Wicked Weed Brewing Black Angel with Boysenberry Pie (Asheville, North Carolina)
