We're over giving flowers for Valentine’s Day. Instead, we prefer to gift our loved ones something they’ll actually like: beer. But in the spirit of compromise, we’re willing to meet the flower lovers halfway with these seven flower-flavored beers.
Stochasticity Project Hibiscusicity
A release from Stone Brewing’s experimental, science-centric Stochasticity Project, this Belgian-style ale gets its pink hue and tart, almost berry-like flavors from dried hibiscus.Magic Hat Pistil A bouquet of dandelions would be unimpressive as a Valentine’s Day offering, but the flowering weeds shine in this seasonal spring ale from Magic Hat. Brewers use the greens to give the beer a grassy bitterness.
Elysian Brewing Avatar Jasmine IPA
The Seattle-based brewery adds ultra-fragrant jasmine flowers twice during brewing for extra flavor and aromatics. While the hoppiness of a classic IPA comes through, the floral flavors prevail for an almost tea-like drink.
