What do you buy for the man or woman that has everything? Forget the boring old flowers and chocolates and give your loved one the gift of homebrew this Valentine's Day. Making wine and beer at home is a great hobby to share together – or get your other half started and just enjoy the results!
Beer Gifts for Valentine's Day
For the novice homebrewer
Knowing where to start with homebrew can be daunting. If your partner has been talking about trying their hand, then the complete ‘Microbrewery’ starter kit is a great gift to get them started. It contains absolutely everything you need to brew, including the fermentation bin, the barrel, and more. The kit produces 40 pints of bitter from extract, and all the equipment can be used again.
For the hop lover
If American-style IPAs are more to their taste, they'll be delighted to receive an Evil Dog American Double IPA kit. A powerful dose of the American Simcoe and Summit hop varieties, malts, and US West Coast craft beer yeast combine to make a beer with potent bitterness and bursting with aromas of pine and grapefruit.
Wine Gifts for Valentine's Day
For the first-time vintner
For the wine lover, a wine-making kit is the gift that keeps on giving. The Wine Starter Kit makes six bottles of a rich deep Cabernet Sauvignon with blackcurrant and mint flavours. Not only that, but you gain the equipment to make wine again and again for less than £2.40 a bottle. Be kind to the environment and kind to the wallet this Valentine's Day!
