My parents hosted Thanksgiving and my two brothers, Dean and Brian, and their families also attended. My brothers and parents love beer, so I was happy to receive a wonderful package of Budweiser Project 12 Special Edition beers to share.
I was also provided a slate board with chalk, tasting glasses, and linen coasters. I setup the tasting area at the end of the table and discussed the three different beer options with everyone and why they were named what they were.
My brother Dean is more of a traditional kind of guy and he enjoyed the flavor of the North Pacific Lager. My mom and dad love Bock beer, so they preferred the Beechwood Bock Batch 43229. I did get Dean to try the Vanilla Bourbon Cask and while he was skeptical of it at first, he really liked it and didn't think it tasted too much like vanilla.
My brother Brian enjoyed the lager as well and sister-in-law Ginny loved the Vanilla Bourbon Cask.
I tried a little of each flavor and enjoyed them all, but I think the Vanilla Bourbon Cask was my favorite. It went really well with my vegetarian Thanksgiving plate!
Thanks to Millennial Central for providing these products for my family's Thanksgiving gathering.
