8 Craft Brewery Date Night Ideas
Dinner and a movie? Been there, done that. We’ve brewed up some unique date night ideas for beer lovers (no pun intended) so you don’t have to!
1. Board Games at the Brewery
Who doesn’t love a classic board game with a beer? Jenga, Connect 4, Dominoes, Checkers, Chess, Battleship, Yahtzee, and Scrabble are all great two-player games to look out for at the brewery. If your date loves craft beer and competition, this date night idea is a “bingo”!
2. Beer Flights/Tasting Experience
If the apple of your eye is an adventurous craft beer lover, invite them to share a beer flight or attend a guided tasting experience. Ask your server or beertender to surprise you with four different styles of popular brews and guess the brew based on the menu options. To make things even more interesting, try to describe the primary flavor notes, mouthfeel, and aromas.
3. Beer Pairing Dinner
A beer pairing dinner date is the ultimate step up from your average meal – it requires an adventurous spirit and a willingness to try new things. First, take a look at the menu and decide which entrees or appetizers sound the tastiest. Then ask your server to suggest which brews will pair best with the meals you've chosen. If you REALLY want to impress your date, review our ABC Guide to Food Pairing in advance and use what you've learned to choose your own pairings!
4. Movie Night at the Brewery
Breweries often host movie nights in their taproom or beer garden. Swap the soda for a cold German Pilsner and buttery popcorn for this movie night brewery date experience!
5. Weekend Morning Yoga
What could be better than an early morning coffee stout and Sun Salutations at your favorite brewery? It might stretch you out of your comfort zone, but we think it’s worth the try.
6. Brewery Tour
Take a tour of you and your date’s favorite brewery. Brewery tours allow you to get a better understanding of the brewing process, learn about the history of your favorite brewery, and maybe even sample some local beer. Whether you’re a beer nerd or not, it’s a fun way to get an inside look at what goes into brewing your favorite beers.
7. Beer Festival
No matter where you live, craft beer festivals are going on everywhere year-round. Craft beer festivals are great for discovering new beers, participating in fun games and activities, and connecting with other beer lovers. Surprise your date with tickets to a craft beer festival to spice things up!
8. Craft Your Own Experience
Grab a growler of your favorite brew and craft your own date night experience. The greatest beer pairing is with the activities that fill you with the most joy. Whatever it is, whether it be a winter hike, summer bonfire, or a night in, craft beer will most definitely elevate a good experience into a great one.
