We're serving up an incredible five-course food and beer pairing, together with a night in an exceptional hotel. And, of course, you’re also welcome to include our award-winning beer tour in your plans. Just imagine sharing all this with that someone special in your life. What could be better?

(It’s also worth noting that it’s a leap year, which, if you’re a bit of a traditionalist, means that Valentine’s Day is in your hands, ladies.)

No Valentine’s Day would be complete without our decadent food and beer pairing. We’ve pulled out all the stops for this month’s event, which will be facilitated by an experienced brewmaster and includes five separate courses and seven beers, all appropriately paired, as well as a welcome drink.
