    What beers do you guys think are great Valentines Day Beers, and what do you like about them for sharing with your boyfriend/girlfriend on this special day?

    My girlfriend hates beer so I will probably end up drinking an entire six pack of whatever to myself and scream at her until I cry and blackout in her arms...Just like every Valentines Day!:(

    I always cook for V-Day. We usually have wine but my wife specifically requested beer. We are going to start off with a BCBS and something lighter during dinner, maybe a Belgian blond, and then knock out dessert with some homebrew lambic to cut the sweetness.

    What do you guys think of something like 3 Monts, or Deus? Something people not as "beer geek chic" might find a little more champagne-like?

    I might have to crack open Bitter Valentine. I had the opportunity to try it the other day and was very impressed.

    I planned on opening a Yards Chocolate Love Stout on Vday but I have to bartend that night. So we opened it last night for The Walking Dead. For anyone in the Philly area, it's one to check out! $9/750ml, too.
