I ♥ Beer: Valentine's Stuff

Some Valentine's Day stuff here in Austin that I'm aware of:
  • You can get a special Valentine's glass tonight (Feb. 9) at Flying Saucer.
  • Both the Ginger Man and North by Northwest are holding a beer & chocolate tastings (NXNW calls theirs a "class") on Feb. 12. Both are $35, reservations are encouraged.
  • Opal Divine's is having a three-course Valentine's beer dinner, Feb. 12-14. $65, reservations not required, and if your loved one isn't into beer (in which case, why are with this person?) they can make substitutions.
  • On Feb. 14, NXNW will also be holding a four-course Valentine's Dinner, featuring "a red-tinted Barton Kriek Lambic-style beer, aged in wine barrels, and blended with cherries."
Not really Valentine's, but close:
  • Zax Restaurant is having a meet-the-brewers night with Jester King Brewery Feb. 16 at 6pm. See my previous post for a look at the wonderful beers by this very new Austin brewery. Enjoy the beer, keep the commemorative logo glass.
  • The 19th Annual Great Guinness Toast, in which lovers of the stout try to break the record for the world's largest simultaneous toast, is Feb. 18 at 1opm. I know the Ginger Man is a participating bar.
