Thanksgiving Pairing Guide

November 17, 2017 | Leave a Comment

Family invites - sent. Fried turkey from Wild Wing - ordered. Side dishes - uhh..

Each of our fried turkey orders comes with an extra side of marinade. You can be wild and drench it on top of your turkey, or you can use it to make some savory sides! Check out some delicious suggestions below.

Stuffing: A turkey's best friend and a Thanksgiving Day classic that's served in almost every household. How boring. Make it a wild side and incorporate your extra Italian marinade in there! It'll give your stuffing some extra spice that'll make your guests say, 'Mamma Mia!' as they're reaching for a second helping.

Other sauce suggestions: Medium, Ragin' Cajun, Flying Fajita

Potatoes: You say potato, I say yum! Cut your potatoes into tiny wedges, lay them over a baking sheet, drizzle your extra Ranchilada marinade on top, and bake! It'll give your potatoes a delicious ranch flavor with a subtle hint of spice.

Other sauce suggestions: Garlic! Garlic! Garlic!, Lemon Pepper, Red Hot & Bleu

Veggies: You can cook your veggies any way you like, or you can do it the Wild Wing way and put them on skewers! We recommend mushrooms, onions, zucchini, grape tomatoes, eggplant and asparagus. Let them soak in your extra Fajita sauce for at least an hour, grill them up, and enjoy! Your vegetables will have a tex mex flavor even your pickiest guest will love.

Other sauce suggestions: Italian, Garlic! Garlic! Garlic!, Lemon Pepper, Ginger

We paired your favorite wild sides, but now it's time to get into the good stuff. Take a look at a few of our beer suggestions for your feast!

Sierra Nevada Celebration IPA is one of our go-to's this Thanksgiving. It falls on the hoppier side of things, but it always proves to be versatile, perfectly paired with turkey and all the fixings!

Another favorite pick is Samuel Adams Winter Lager. It's a spiced wheat bock brewed with ginger, cinnamon, and orange peel and is well served at any Thanksgiving feast.

One last great beer to pair is New Belgium Ranger. It's a bright, crisp beer that's light and refreshing!

We hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving day the wild way! Let us know which turkey pairings are your favorites or share your own side suggestions below!
