We all know that valentine's day is coming up and when you think romantic drink you think of things like wine and champagne. You may even think of something like sparkling cider to pair with your dinner; however, the one thing that you do not think of is to have a romantic dinner with is beer.
One thing that a lot of people do with beer is to marinate some short ribs in beer. A good choice of beer to use is Guinness beer. If you choose to do this you need to watch out for the bitter beer taste and you can counteract that bitter taste by using sugar for a good balance of flavor.
A good choice of beer that you can use as a romantic drink with your meal, during the big day is a fruit cider beer. This beer if it has berries infused will give a good red to purple color which is perfect for the big day and the flavor pairs well with a number of items that you may be eating so it is a good choice. When you choose this beer you need to make sure that the fruit combination is well balanced or this beer will overpower a meal, if you are going out make sure that you ask for a sample.
Some good examples of this beer is Uncle John's Fruit Farm and West County Blueberry-Apple Cider. When you drink a cider beer some things to keep in mind are is that you will find the flavor will be similar to a white wine, but with a fuller taste; however, the body will be less than a regular beer that you are used too.
If you choose to have a full sparkling cider you will find it is very champagne like in nature. So this also may be a good choice. So try to remember this valentine's day if you are staying home and cooking that perfect meal or if you are going out try to include beer when you think romantic drinks this valentine's day.
