In recipes for soups, stews, marinades and batters, you can replace some or all of the water, broth, wine and other cooking liquid with beer. You can even add beer to a cake or bread batter. Beer adds character, an earthy, rich flavor and depth, and that certain something that you just can’t put your finger on.

The Big Meal is a great opportunity to break out of your wine-buying routine and take a look at tasty and affordable pairings. Luckily, traditional roast turkey welcomes a broad palette of wine styles and flavors, with one rule of thumb: avoid big, meaty tannic wines, like Cabernets or Chiantis. (They can overpower, so save them for a charcuterie plate or slow sipping by the fire). Instead, for Reds, seek out unabashed juiciness, pronounced fruit and a soft round finish. With Whites, you want well-balanced acidity and flavors ranging from crisp and dry to delicately sweet to floral.
