Orlando is buzzing about with beer releases this Valentine’s Day! Skip the roses and expensive dinner this time and go to a brewery with your sweetheart to check out the unique tastes Orlando’s breweries have to offer!

Broken Strings is offering a new release to their Sugared Stout Gang series: a chocolate covered strawberry imperial pastry stout. This will be available in bottles on February 12.

Ellipsis Brewing, which is just minutes from the Orlando airport, will have a Double Raspberry Vanilla Gose on tap—this would be perfect for after dinner, as I have no doubt this sour will also be a little sweet.

Tactical Brewing out of Baldwin Park will also be brewing a sour: a Floridaweisse with dark cherry, vanilla, and almond called “She Loves You Not.”

Tollroad Brewing, over in Ocoee, will treat a keg of their Imperial Porter with chocolate and strawberry on Valentine’s Day. They will only be treating one keg, so get this one while you can!

Over in the South Downtown Orlando area, Rockpit Brewing will release “Be My Sourtine,” a Berliner Weisse made with hibiscus and rose hips. This was released last year around the same time when Rockpit first opened.

Ivanhoe Park Brewing is releasing a passionfruit IPA called “I Choose Me” in cans on Valentine’s Day. They start selling the cans at 2 PM. They will also have this on draft in the brewery.

Hourglass Brewing will be hosting a Galentine’s Day event with all-you-can-drink beermosas on the 13th and they will also hold a macaron and craft beer pairing on Valentine’s Day.

There will also be several beer and dessert pairings at breweries in the area! Deviant Wolfe, Rockpit Brewing, and Hourglass Brewing are doing pairings with sweet treats.

There are other special events happening this month in Orlando as well, including the Central Florida Craft Brewer’s Guild Beer Fest happening Saturday, February 22. Keep an eye out on more special beers being released this month all over Central Florida. Cheers!
