CATEGORIES: Beer   Feature  

A grocery-store sixer simply won’t do for this Hallmark holiday; show the love with these romantically beery gifts.

STUCK ON YOU: Personalize Erin Condren’s heart-shaped labels ($25 for 23) and stick ‘em on a bottle of your very own homebrew.

MADE WITH LOVE: Nothing beats a sweet treat you make yourself: Try Sprinkle Bakes blogger Heather Baird’s delectable ale and pretzel soft caramels.

BATH FOR TWO: Your V-day gameplan: You, your significant other, flutes of saison and a bubbly tub. Lather up with The Beer Soap Co.’s round bars of beer-infused soaps, crafted with everything from Abita Pecan Harvest Ale to Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout; cut to the chase with Sex Panther soap ($5.50), made with Brazil’s Xingu schwarzbier.

LOVE NOTES: Etsy artisan RobertoSand laser-engraves birch beer carriers with any message imaginable; think of something saucy, then fill the box with your Valentine’s four favorite brews.

JUST DESSERTS: Feed each other Vosges’ Madagascar vanilla bean and caramel marshmallows, and share a snifter of Samuel Smith’s Imperial Stout; they come beautifully boxed in the chocolatier’s mouthwatering set ($50).

BEER BOX: Skip roses and give your beer-drinkin’ sweetie hop flowers instead: FromYouFlowers.com offers the limited-edition Samuel Adams Hoppy Valentine’s Day basket ($55), which in addition to gorgeous green hops includes two pint glasses, a bottle opener keychain, organic dark chocolate, artisanal salami, smoked gouda cheese and a mixed-nut assortment, all for pairing with a favorite brew.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
