Thanksgiving Beer Pairing Recommendations

Our favorite food-centered holiday, Thanksgiving, is quickly approaching. You might already be brining. In a few days, the turkey will be ready to be carved (maybe a free-range one this year?), the stuffing will be stuffed... then unstuffed, and the gravy boat will sail off into the sunset. What better way to celebrate, than with a selection of fine beers?

Bill Sysak, Certified Cicerone and Beverage Supervisor for the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens, says that he will "simply cover the table with a selection of food-friendly beers: bières de gardes, Saisons, and winter warmers."

That may be some good advice, but which beers of the potentially hundreds available should you pick up?
