Brews for the bird

Hometown hops abound for every part of your Thanksgiving festivities.

Food and Drink Features

Matt Carney
All my extended family lives out of state, so we usually meet at my grandparents’ house in Missouri for the holidays. So close to Kansas City, Mo., Boulevard brews are aplenty, as are St. Louis’s Schlafly (they have a September- October-only pumpkin ale that literally tastes like you’re drinking a spiced pumpkin pie still glowing from the oven), but this year I’ll bring a handful of my favorite Okie beers to share with the cousins, aunts and uncles.

Lean and green

If moderation is your maxim, you might be a flexitarian.

Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
The word “flexitarian” probably first appeared in Dawn Jackson Blatner’s 2008 book, The Flexitarian Diet. The idea was simple: Substitute a few meals each week with vegetarian-only entrées. Among the happy side effects Blatner listed were improved heart health, weight loss and a healthier planet.
