The Brew Gentlemen Beer Company

February 14 (sold out)
7 p.m.

Looking for an offbeat way to spend the holiday we all love to hate? Show your love for local libations and independent entrepreneurialism at The Brew Gentlemen‘s creative twist on the black tie formal.

Located in the heart of Braddock, the craft brewery and taproom—which opened in May 2014—has been drawing fans for its passion for classical brewing, culinary touches and varied beers focused on “the balanced and complex.”

If you missed their epic Hitchcock-themed Halloween bash at the Carrie Furnace, you won’t want to skip this chance to share some love vibes with the Gents on their home turf. Equal parts fancy and low-key, the Valentine’s Day affair kicks off at 7 p.m.

For $45, brewery-goers will be the very first to savor the Gents’ latest special beer release—the Nelson Saison (billed as a “modern farmhouse ale made with Nelson Sauvin hops”)—all the beer you could want on Valentine’s Day and all-you-can-eat apps from Innovative Mobile Catering. Providing the night’s dance-worthy soundtrack will be DJ Duke. Oh, and there will be a luscious chocolate fountain.

When proprietor Asa Foster said the Valentine’s Day event would “definitely sell out soon,” he meant it, as all tickets were in fact sold as of last weekend.

The Valentine’s Day black tie formal at The Brew Gentlemen is one of our top 8 events for February. See all of them here.
