I know it's still a few hours early, but the wife has already started the pie, and the turkey is defrosting, so it's close enough. I'm not quite sure what will go best with tomorrows meal, so I will be rotating through the following:

Light Cream Ale
Tony's favorite porter
Nut Brown Ale
Lake Erie IPA (aged on French oak)

What are you having with your turkey????

I have a bunch of bottled American Pale Ale and my Belgian-Style Oktoberfest (don't ask) on tap. Also have a smattering of store-bought seasonals, Sierra Nevada Celebration, Sam Adams variety pack, Sam Smith's Winter Welcome etc...

I'm actually going camping in Yosemite tomorrow with the Gfriend, but will celebrate Turkeyday on Saturday with my "somewhere between a strong ale and India Pale" Ale and Vienna lager on tap.

Cheers and happy thanksgiving!

On tap right now, Homegrown IPA (with JD oak chips), Bo pils, St. chucks, T-58 amber, brown, weizenbock. Alternates that get hit 14% dopplebock, 3.5 bitter, 60 and 80 shilling, Skots Traquair.
I like the brown or porter with the turkey, the db for after desert (awesome sourcream apple pie with milk) and the 60 or 3.5 bitter just for sipping while we watch football or play pool.

I thank everyone, for what I've learned here the last few years and for the entertaining banter.

A dry stout ala Guinness. Must have a glass early this morning before we travel...Turkey is being served at a home where alcohol is not on the approved list, alas.

Goin' to Mom's house for lunch. I'll guarantee no beer will be served there!!

However, later this afternoon when I get home to watch the Dolphins wallop the Lions and hopefully the Bucs clobber the Cowboys, and maybe the Chiefs beat the Broncs, the choices at the taps are:

ESB
Blonde
Dunkelweizen
. . and available in the cooler if needed:
American wheat
Coffee Carmel Stout

On Saturday brewing 10 gallons of honey brown and 10 of B3's "Fire in the Hole"

I'm sipping on my Hoptimus Prime IPA right now as I start dinner and watch the Lions. Also on tap is a Best Bitter and Apple-Pie Cider. I can also feel a Bigfoot or two coming on this evening.

I woke up on Thanksgiving morning in Venezuela.

I was supposed to be on my way to my parent's house by 4:30 p.m., but Comair couldn't get all of the passengers and all of their bags on their P.O.S. regional jet because it would have been overweight, so they left 7 passengers' bags behind, including - of course - my wife's.

Thanksgiving dinner consisted of chicken fingers in an airport restaurant while waiting for the bag to arrive on a REAL Delta airplane instead of the Barbie jet we flew on, which was merely masquerading as a Delta airplane. Sam Adams Boston Lager was my best (really, my only) choice, but I was too pissed to even drink that. (/rant)

Tonight, safely at my folks' and with all our bags in hand, it's an eclectic mix of Dogfish Head and Edenton (NC) Brewing Company beers, as well as the Three Philosophers that I'm enjoying as I type this.

at the inlaws drinking a Yeti stout, to be followed by a Thomas Hardy night cap.

I wish I'd had time to bottle some beers before coming. At home I've got 14 kegs in cold storage; my favorite right now is a mild ale which is very drinkable.

Graham,
sorry, but what do you expect for flying delta?
my wife travelled for 2 years and the family joke was when she was flying home delta, I could go ahead and make other plans for the evening..

in 2001 I flew 100,000 miles plus on Delta

in 2002 I flew less than 5,000 miles on Delta

I got a call from a VP asking me why I flew so little in 2002.

I said "Have you flown your airline lately"?

She said "point taken"

They never called again.

What a terrible airline.

I am drinking a 6 year old Super Scottish Ale OG: 1.144

Good stuff

Happy Thanksgiving to all those in what I believe to be the greatest country in the world despite the current administration

I'm sorry you guys have had bad experiences. I'm a commuter, so I fly in the back quite a lot. Delta mainline is doing much better these days.

Delta Connection, on the other hand, continues to suck, to the point where the company has created a new oversight department to try to force them to improve their admittedly abysmal performance.

The problem is, when you buy a ticket, you have no way of knowing that you stand a good chance of flying on a Connection carrier instead of a mainline aircraft. Your ticket says "Delta," you get on a jet that is painted to look like a Delta aircraft, yet it is operated by someone else.

There is a large chasm in terms of quality and performance between mainline Delta and Delta Connection, and there are a lot of reasons for it, but that's far enough off-topic so that's all I'm going to say about it.

Graham,

It is the same on US Scareways. When I get a non commuter plane everything runs smoothly. when I get certain flavors of US Scareways Express it is a crap shoot as to whether or not I will get home on time or at all on the day I am flying.

It only appears to be getting worse. Every airline seems to be losing its way. Customer service is almost non existent at this point.

This year like most years in the past I will pass 100,000 flown miles for the year (Hey... It pays the bills). I get "status" for that but the "status" is not really good for much any more.

Ahh heck... At least I do not have to fly on the Monday morning after Thanksgiving this year with all the Amateurs so I guess that I should not complain.

Did I mention that I have my all Cluster Hopped Oatzen Pale Ale on tap?

I do and it is very good in my opinion.

I also have been sampling some of my very aged beers the last couple of days. I do not get to those kegs much but I am glad that I have done some tasting the last couple days.

"Did I mention that I have my all Cluster Hopped Oatzen Pale Ale on tap?"

Scott - What did you decide for an oat grain bill for that Oatzen? If I recall, there was some discussion on the board about types, and amount of oats.

Thanksgiving is over - Tonight "IPA" and Steak!

Delta has a hub in Cincy and pretty much does not allow competition. I read that we have the second highest fares in the country. Locals mostly go to Dayton, Lexington, Louisville or Indy for flights which are easily half Cincy's even though some of those flights pass through Cincy. The Mayor was trying to organize a bus service to Dayton.

OTOH there are some really neat direct flights overseas.

That Cincy/Covington (Sp?) airport is on my personal "do Not Fly" list... What a terrible place to fly through.

Makes the Old Detroit Terminal look like a well oiled machine.

My personal experience with CVG is that it functions just fine. It is the cost that is the problem. Delta chases off just about all the competition. If Delta goes belly up or is bought out, things ought to get better but there may not be as many nice fights.

I've gotta agree with Skot about CVG. About the only thing that makes it bearable is Bluegrass Brewing in the commuter terminal.

Black Rye
Fuller's ESB clone
Vienna (this one is so good that it rarely gets consumed, which is strange when you think about it)
