The American Craft Beer Valentine’s Day Picks

Where I come from, Valentine's Day is lovingly referred to as Pink Beer Day. And although I fully support my college counterparts who celebrate by mixing pink dye into their bud light, this year I've got a better idea.

“Beer People Come to Beer People” at Spinnaker Bay Brewing

Upon entering the doors of Spinnaker Bay Brewing, you'll immediately be drawn to the brewery's striking mahogany bar. This bar, complete with wood-paneled mirrors and a Prohibition-era panic button hidden under the ledge, was recovered from Chicago's Gingham Hotel in 1929 and is rumored to have hosted the gangsters and celebrities of that age. You'll also find raw brick walls, wooden furniture, and Bert Grant tap handles to complete the brewery's post-Prohibition ambiance.

What the hell is a Saison?

We've all been there, when the waiter comes around and you want to order the "Say-zohn." "Oh... the Sigh-zon?" says the waiter. "Uh... Yes, the... Zey-zun," you reply and point to the menu in an attempt to end the horrible, impromptu Monty Python sketch you just wandered into. Truth is, we don't think anyone really knows how to pronounce this one except the Belgians, and we have it on good authority that they're just making it up as they go along.
