By Clara Jaide on Feb. 02, 2022
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Although, traditionally people associate Valentine’s Day with a bottle of wine or champagne, we’re trying to switch it up a little bit this year. Beer can be romantic, too! Unless beer makes you gassy, of course, then maybe you’ll wanna stick to the wine to be safe from ruining the mood.
We’ve picked out the most romantic beers for you and your special someone to drink on Valentine’s Day.
The Most Romantic Beers to Drink on Valentine’s Day
Imagine showing up to your Valentine’s Day date and saying “I brought you a big bottle of Sexual Chocolate”, and before your date can say a word, slowly raise a bottle of this imperial stout without breaking eye contact. Your date may be confused at first, but after tasting what this beer has to offer, they will love you even more. For extra effect, wink after every time you say ‘Sexual Chocolate’.
Okay, this one isn’t actually a beer, it’s a cider– but it’s carbonated and close enough. Thornbury Village’s Craft Cranberry Cider might be a win if you’re a beer drinker but your partner is not– but willing to try something different. This cider provides the sweet fruity notes that you might get from wine, but in a much better way.
This beer is for those who are flying solo this Valentine’s Day. Or for those who are throwing an “I Hate Valentine’s Day” party with all your single friends. Or if you and your boo just really like bitter beers, this is for you too. Pairs perfectly with an entire box of chocolates and I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing by Aerosmith on repeat.
This rich and smooth stout is for the person who wants to show how deep and pure their love is but just can’t find the right words. Notes of molasses, figs, coffee, and chocolate will make you feel warm and comfortable… 12% ABV will also help. Let this imperial stout do the talking for you.
This wheat beer is perfect for those couples who are taking it easy this V-day. Whether you’re watching Netflix or eating Chinese take-out, this brew will add the perfect amount of love and romance to your night.
Here’s another beer for anyone spending Valentine’s Day alone. Wrap up in your favourite blanket and put on your favourite show. This beer is the only date you’ll ever need. Ok, maybe not.. but it should do for tonight.
