Imbibe thinks so, too; here's their list of Thanksgiving-friendly beers. What are yours?

That's about the extent I can comment, the rest of the beers I would recomend are local (Canada, BC more specifically) but just for the record.....
Howe Sounds winter ale
Pacific Western Natureland Fest Bier
Central City Red Racer Pumpkin Ale
Hermanator by Vancouver Island Brewery
Phillips Chocolate Porter
Good luck with the pairings!

ETA... What is your Thanksgiving menu? Maybe we can pair beers with each course or dish.

After a shopping trip to the best beer place around, I tried my first candidate today: Bellhaven Scottish Ale. It grew on me, the malty, bready aromas and flavors giving way to a slight smokiness -- less smoke than I expected, in fact. I think I'd like a little more carbonation and/or alcohol, but it's a contender for sure.

So, we'll be having the Bellhaven Ale, Sierra Nevada Tumbler and NH Harvest, and the Rogue Smoke Ale, which was recommended by a salesperson and gets nice reviews over at BeerAdvocate. Will report back, perhaps with a tear in my eye about that St. F.

I also have a handful of The Bruery's Autumn Maple - which is brewed with sweet potatoes, cinnamon, nutmeg, and raisins. That will probably go along with the dinner.

I had some Dogfish Head Raison De'Etre, and the raisins you mentioned reminded me, I bet this one would go great with the big turkey dinner. It's a complex raisiny molassesy sort of flavor, not too sweet, and a bit of spice, but it's not at all heavy.
