In years past, that meant plopping a couple bottles of red and white wines on the table. But as my tastes have evolved from grapes to grains, I find myself gravitating toward beer. With scrubbing carbonation and a far-ranging palette of flavors and aromas, beer offers an array of pairing possibilities. Here are a few can't-fail combinations for Turkey Day.
