Ten beers to drink alone on Valentine's Day
There are plenty of lovey-dovey beers to drink with your honey on Valentine's Day -- the Coupler from Wynkoop Brewing, Red Ale from Odell's, and Cherry Dip Stout at the Vine Street Pub, to name a few -- but you're drinking alone this year, right?
For that, you need something a little edgier. Here are ten beers to drink alone on Valentine's Day.
10) Mama's Little Yella Pils
Oskar Blues Brewing
Yeah, it's a great name, and it'll let you drown your sorrows in more ways than one. Oh, and because Mama's is a lower-alcohol pilsner, you can throw back a six-pack and still not have to worry about drunkenly Facebooking your ex.
9) The Nihilist
Mountain Sun Pub, Southern Sun, Vine Street Pub
This imperial stout is the Whiskey of Beers, and you can drink it neat, no rocks. The name says it all. You don't care. Nothing matters. Fuck it.
8) Bigfoot Barley Wine
Oh the places you'll stomp and romp -- in your head, at least -- after a couple (don't say "couple," damn it!) of these big bad boys. At 10 percent alcohol by volume, they'll go down sweet -- unlike your ex -- and have you on your back before dark (also unlike your ex).
7) The Stranger
Left Hand Brewing
Gettin' some strange? No? Sit on your Left Hand 'til it goes numb and then drink one of these. It brings some explosive joy back to being alone.
6) True Blonde Dubbel
Do blondes have more fun? Who knows? But this sweet, saucy number is sure to make your ex jealous. And at 8 percent ABV, it's sure to make you forget.
