You’ve definitely got your choices laid out for you at Valentine’s Day, and, if you’re not an amateur at this romantic stuff, you know what you’ve got to do:
Breakfast in bed.
Hire a flying baby to shoot arrows at your loved one.
Enchant a rose to drop petals until your true love proclaims his or her love to you or you must forever remain a Beast.
You know. The usual.
Or, you could just make it easy on everyone and not run the risk of your family and friends remaining furniture for the rest of their lives and come to Beer Mine, our 2019 Valentine’s bash, on Saturday, February 16th, starting at noon!
“No one really needs a day to remember their loved ones,” says Events Coordinator Randi Friel, “but it’s pretty sweet that we have one, anyway. Even if you don’t have a valentine, this day is all about the people and things you love. Like beer!
“Dateless? We have beer. Dating? We have beer. Married? We have more beer. Get out of the house and stop watching Lifetime and waiting for the perfect person. Bring your significant other in to enjoy a beer and get your faces drawn.”
Don’t miss out on getting your caricature done with your bae. From 2-5pm, we’ll have a caricaturist on hand, FREE! (Just make sure you tip her!)
We’ll have all kinds of fun and games. Valentine’s Day chocolates galore! And, of course, 2019’s special Valentine’s Day-inspired glass! Graphic Design Alchemist Courtney Rosenberg really went all out this year.
And beer! We wouldn’t be CMBC without beer!
For That Cranberry Good Good, we took our beloved cranberry shandy, The Bog, and kicked it up a notch — to 8%! It’s all the cranberry goodness you love, but with an ABV that won’t leave you hanging. Limit three cases per-person.
As for Beer Name Ale, with the TTB shutdown, Beer Name is the only name we could give this beer. At 13% ABV and dry-hopped at 10 pounds-per-barrel with Cashmere and Azacca, Beer Name is a monster of an IPA. Fermented at 95° thanks to an amazingly unique Kveik yeast, you can expect notes of over-ripened mangoes and exotic fruits, with lime and lemon zest hints in the background balanced by a supple body. Ultimately, Beer Name is Eminently Drinkable.
And don’t forget to check out our Beer Engine. Cask beer is always good for a celebration, and for Beer Mine, we’ll have a cask of Honey Porter with freeze-dried strawberries and cocoa nibs. Yum!
So hit up your bae and swing down for some beers. See you then!
