8 Brew-tastic Valentine's Day Festivities
Will You Beer Mine?
One of the craft breweries listed below declares “Beer Lovers are Better Lovers!”… but we’ll let you beer the judge of that. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and so many of the craft breweries we have featured in our monthly Craft Beer Club are celebrating in style! Some rebelling with “Anti-Valentine’s Day”, some pairing their brews with chocolate and special menus, while others will let you get married and/or renew your vows!
