It seems like every restaurant in Los Angeles is offering a special menu this Valentine's Day, and they usually include champagne, wine, or a special cocktail menu selected to maximize the romance of the meal. But why settle for wine or booze on St. Valentine's Day when you really want to share a special brew with your lover? Here are a few options for craft-beer-centered celebrations around town -- and a few bottle suggestions if you'd rather spend the evening in the comfort of your home.
Coming a day early, on Wednesday, is the MySourValentinedinner at Hollywood beer destination Blue Palms Brewhouse and featuring AveryBrewingCo. The dinner's four courses are each paired with one of the rare and sought-after sour beers from the Colorado brewery. Tickets are $65 per person, and the dinner begins at 7:00 p.m.
On the 14th there are several options for romantic dinners that spotlight craft beer:
-- The Pub at Golden Road Brewing is opening the doors of Chloe's -- their usually member-only events space -- for a Valentine's dinner featuring a (vegan friendly) three-course menu, a souvenir glass, and a growler to take home with you. There will be live music, and the brewery is tapping the last keg of Valentin -- a blood orange saison that was brewed last year with Hangar 24 Brewery.
