Your Food

It’s all about the sides. Make sure your Thanksgiving table has substantial side dishes so all of your guests will have something delicious to eat, no matter their dietary needs. We have gathered suggestions for vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free and gluten-free dishes that will appeal to almost everyone. Also, On Tap writer Rick Bonino takes a look at how the new liquor stores are catering to beer lovers, updates us on new local breweries and takes a look at the winter brews that are hitting shelves.
