A Complete Valentine’s Day Evening
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and you don’t want to be underprepared. Good thing the Co-op’s got your back for a complete Valentine’s Day evening. We have a great selection of Cupid approved items: chocolates, homemade desserts, cheeses, beer & cider, and even gift ideas!
Did you know we have a Valentine’s Day Special Pre-Order Menu?
If you’re looking for the perfect accompaniment to your meal or dessert for Valentine’s Day Evening, the Co-op has you covered there too!
New to our shelves is Lindeman’s Framboise Raspberry Lambic Beer. It has a magnificent aroma, delicate palate of raspberries with undertones of fruity acidity; elegant, sparkling clean taste, with inviting raspberry supported by Lambic complexity. It is a deep reddish-purple color with a pink head.
This pairs well with chocolate desserts, fresh raspberries, and Olympia Oysters. I recommend having this with your Date Night Dessert Box from our pre-order menu previously mentioned!
If you’d like to try other Lindeman’s Lambic varieties we also have Apple, Peach, and Cherry.
We also really like Samuel Smith Organic Strawberry Fruit Beer. Wild strawberry jam flavors abound in this lightly effervescent and quaffable ale. Its mild sweetness is contrasted by a faint toast in the finish. This would go well on its own along with a fresh handful of strawberries or, of course, Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, but our recommendation is to blend this with Samuel Smith Organic Chocolate Stout for an amazing combination!
This might sound crazy, but we know it works. Pour them in a glass together – we recommend 2:1 in favor of stout. Make it a Valentine’s Day to remember!
Last, but certainly not least, we have our local hero, Kaneb Orchards Cranberry Crisp Cider.
“Kaneb Orchards Cranberry Crisp Cider is a blend of our medium sweet cider and a splash of 100% cranberry juice from berries locally grown and pressed at our Cidery. It’s the perfect balance between sweet and sour that makes this a delightfully refreshing drink. Made from hand-picked apples. Handcrafted at our Cidery in Northern New York. Sparkling. Naturally gluten-free. Enjoy!” – Kaneb Orchards
This amazing hard cider is our featured pairing for our February Cheese of the Month: Meier’s Whiteface Cheddar with Cranberry and Port Wine (also local!)
