Date Night Ideas for the Craft Beer-Loving Couple

craft beer date nights

Need a better idea for Valentines Day (or any date night) than your typical dinner and a movie? We’ve put together some date night ideas for the craft beer-loving couple. Here are just a few of our favorite date night ideas, all centered around craft beer. Because what could be better than indulging in your passion for craft beer with the one you love?

Tour the Local Craft Brewery: With so many small, local breweries popping up all over the country, chances are you have at least one or two good breweries near you that you haven’t tried yet (or ones that you keep coming back to). In fact, the average American lives within 10 miles of a brewery. Many of these breweries offer beer tours, perfect for tastings and an education on the brewing process.

Bar Hopping/ Beer tasting: Many local bars offer smaller, eight-ounce sizes (or “half pours”) , perfect for sampling different beers. Hop around a few neighborhood spots, and try out different beer types and varieties. Get adventurous with your picks, even base your tastings around food pairings at different restaurants and bars.

Special Beer Events: Love a good craft beer festival or beer tasting event? Good, because you have lots of options! Beer festivals are happening all over the world (click here for a calendar and detailed list of locations), and there’s always (seriously, always) a local tasting event, i.e. Brews & Bites, Burgers & Brews, Craft Beer & Croquet (that one sounds interesting), just to name a few. Check your town’s local calendar of events for more information.

Make Your Own Craft Beer: Our personal favorite (forgive the bias). Feel like staying in? That makes for a perfect “Beer Tasting & Brewing Night” at home. Stop by the store and pick up a variety of beer styles and brands – all the makings for a private beer tasting and get busy brewing. This of course, leads to a follow up beer tasting night once your home brew is ready!
