5 beers perfect for Valentine's Day

While Valentine’s Day necessitates Champagne and flowers for some people, we posit that a bouquet of beers can be just as romantic. Mix up your date night routine with one of these sweet, sudsy treats.

Side Project Brewing Framboise du Fermier
Popping the top on this elegant, ruby red 750-milliliter bottle from Side Project certainly feels like a Valentine’s Day-worthy romantic gesture. Creamy, sweet and tart, this wine barrel-fermented saison is aged with raspberries, giving it big, fruity flavor.

Heavy Riff Brewing Co. Love Gun
If chocolate doesn’t necessarily pull the trigger of your love gun, this creamy vanilla bomb from Heavy Riff may be more your style. Every sip of this crisp, medium-bodied cream ale is bookended with a sweet vanilla aroma.

Oskar Blues Brewery Death By Coconut
If, like us, you scan your boxes of chocolate Terminator-style for the rare and sacred chocolate-coconut cream, this is the beer for you. Bittersweet chocolate and raw coconut give this Irish-style porter a rich flavor that drinks light and smooth.

O’Fallon Brewery Guilty Pleasure Porter
This velvety porter brewed in collaboration with St. Louis’ own Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Co. has all the charm and flavor of a chocolate-covered strawberry.

Off Color Brewing DinoS’mores
This bold Imperial stout from Chicago is a s’mores lover’s dream. Cozy up by the fire, and, instead of toasting your dessert, crack the top on a can of this deceptively mild, 9.5%-ABV nightcap.
