I could do some research and find the most lovey-dovey beers for the 14th, but that isn't my style. I make do with what I got, literally. I took some inventory of my beer stock to carefully select the top Valentine's Day beers of 2021. So in no particular order....here we go.
Real Love - Interboro Spirits & Ales
Interboro's Real Love screams Valentine's Day. It's can art is cutesy pink with hearts and a curly romantic font. It's 8% so perfect to drink when dealing with a loved one alllll day. I haven't opened it yet but Untappd says it's got apricot nectar flavor which somehow reminds me of Brittany and Santana's "sweet lady kisses" from Glee.
Attention Please! - Bearded Iris Brewing
Like most other girlfriends, I like/need attention. I don't see what's wrong with that. Nothing. There's nothing wrong with wanting attention and owning that. Attention Please! is a Valentine's Day beer because it's an expression I will use on V-Day and every day after.
Surf & Turf - Stillwater Artisanal and Evil Twin Brewing
Ever been to a price fix menu dinner? Valentine's Day is the KING of them. 2 hour max with entrees adding $30 over their normal price? No thank you. Lobster and steak are the typical ~romantic~ dinner. I much rather (and will be at) Boozy Brunch for the holiday.
NEW YORK IS A GREAT PLACE TO VISIT, BUT I WOULD NEVER WANT TO LIVE THERE. - Evil Twin Brewing
New York City indoor dining just opened? No dry runs, no weekend practice. And on the busiest dining day of the year? Then Cuomo decides it's a good time to extend restaurants by one hour extra? Evil Twin got it right in that I wouldn't want to be there.
Double Chocolate Stout - Rouge Ales
V-Day screams flowers and chocolate. I always get a lot of chocolate from my parents and this year, with a boyfriend, I'm getting double. It's a double chocolate holiday so Double Chocolate Stout is the PERFECT Valentine's brew.
Adios Pantalones - Rahr & Sons Brewing Company
Isn't it obvious why I picked this brew? It's pink, duh! I'm ending the list with Adios Pantalones because most of y'all will be ending your night saying the same thing ;).
