February might be the month of love — full of candy hearts, giant flower bouquets, and everything else that comes with Valentine’s Day — but it’s also one of the coldest months of the year. And, more to the point, one of the best months for beer drinkers. The beer lover is treated to wildly diverse beer choices in Feb, from rich, dark beers to lighter, hoppier bangers.
It’s a month for stouts, porters, barleywines, winter warmers, and everything warming, bold, rich, and robust. But with the Super Bowl and Valentines and the potential for strangely warm weather as the month winds down, it’s also a month for double IPAs, sour beers, bocks, and many of the brews that you just can’t wait ’til spring to crack open.
To help you find the best beers for February, we picked eight great new releases, annual classics, and seasonal favorites. Keep scrolling to see the beers you should be drinking all month long.
Troegs Little ‘Nator
ABV: 5.5%
Average Price: $12 for a six-pack
The Beer:
Maybe you’re a fan of Troegs’ spring seasonal bock called Troegenator but you wish it wasn’t so extra. That’s where its new Troegs Little ‘Nator comes in. This 5.5% ABV bock is a lighter alternative with all the bready, sweet, malty flavors of the original and crisp, floral, hoppy flavors perfect to enjoy while you wait for spring.
Tasting Notes:
The nose is a blend of caramel malts, freshly baked bread, honey, citrus zest, and floral, hops. The palate is a mix of caramel, yeasty bread, honey, orchard fruits, light citrus, and a nice kick of floral, earthy hops at the finish.
Bottom Line:
This sessionable beer has everything that bock beer fans love, just a little lighter. It’s a great balance of bready, caramel malts, and crisp, floral hops.
Firestone Walker Mind Haze Brain Melter
Firestone Walker
ABV: 8.5%
Average Price: $10 for a six-pack
The Beer:
Firestone Walker Mind Haze is one of the best, easy-to-find hazy, juicy IPAs on the market. Recently, the brand launched a few versions of this popular beer. Our favorite is the aptly named Brain Melter. Brewed with 2-row malt, blonde road oat malt, malted oats, white wheat, and torrefied wheat, it gets its ridiculous hop presence from Mosaic Cryo, Vic Secret, Citra, Strata, Idaho Gem, Sabro, and Rakau hops.
Tasting Notes:
The nose is a symphony of complex tropical fruit aromas including caramelized pineapple, mango, peach, guava, and a nice piney, floral kick. The palate is creamy, hazy, and juicy, and has a ton of sweet oats, bready, guava, passionfruit, pineapple, grapefruit, and floral, dank pine flavors. Sweet, juicy, and highly memorable.
Bottom Line:
This creamy, hazy, juicy, tropical fruit-centric beer is the perfect respite for the chilly winter air outside.
Melvin 2×4 DIPA
ABV: 9.9%
Average Price: $13 for a four-pack
The Beer:
Melvin 2X4 DIPA isn’t a new beer. But we figured February was a good month for better SEO.
