Party booze consumption calculator here. I think it overestimates a bit, but YMMV. Are your crowd tee-teetotalers, lushes, somewhat in between? The link I provided mentions a rough rule of thumb of 1 drink per drinking guest per hour, for shorter duration parties.
It’s tough on Turkey-Day to find wines that complement the food, given all of the different kinds of dishes. I find that sparkling wines make it easier, plus they add a festive note to the gathering. Some people will go only American, given the U.S.-centric nature of the holiday. This excludes Beaujolais, which I think is one of the more fun, easy to drink, inexpensive wines going, which is unfortunate.
As for specific rec’s, beer tastes are individual. I’d just recommend against super hoppy, or otherwise ‘distinctive’ styles unless you know your guests like that sort of thing. For instance, I love Rauchbier, but I wouldn’t inflict it on anyone else without alternatives for them. I can personally attest that Bud drinkers may not like Sam Adams, and will express their dislike publicly. (I need a better group of relatives, what can I say?)
Gruet makes tasty, U.S., sparkling wine for not much money ~15/btl IIRC. Lower alcohol wines, lower body and tannin wines —like Beaujolais—are going to probably play better with the different dishes than a 16% alcohol Zin. But if your group loves the latest from, e.g., Turley, who am I to say they’re wrong for drinking it with turkey? I’ve liked some of the Carneros pinot noirs, like from Saintsbury (their Garnet line), or Acacia, for their strawberry/cherry and tea flavors, elegant perfume, and mild levels of extract. Plus, they weren’t stupid expensive, the last I checked.
The last time we did thanksgiving, I think we had a sparkler, some beer (2-3 cases should more than suffice), some pinot noir, and a sauvignon blanc. Maybe have two bottles of the sparkler, one regular, one rose?
Usually what I recommend here is to ask the employee who works in the beverages department or liquor store what they recommend and what their thoughts are.
EDIT: When I said Beaujolais, I didn’t mean Nouveau. Nouveau is nice, and as grape-juicey as wine gets, but regular Beaujolais is a bit more versatile with food, IMHO. But hey, buy a bottle of each and compare/contrast.
