Tastier turkeys: New Hampshire farmers feeds beer to turkeys, says they taste better

New Hampshire -

A New Hampshire farmer has been feeding his farm raised turkeys beer since 1993.

For Joe Morette, it all started on a hot July day when he and his workers were tossing a few back after a long, hard day and a turkey knocked over a can and started drinking.  Morette says his turkeys will drink almost anything, but ever since that day the beverage of choice has been a nice lager.  Morette says it enhances the flavor, making them fatter and juicier.

Scientifically, it is unclear whether or not the beer actually makes the birds better.  Until he receives a complaint from a customer he's going to keep filling the trough with the glorious golden beverage.

This year Morette is raising about 50 Thanksgiving turkeys.
