Valentine’s Day Beer Tower

Valentine’s Day has long passed but I am just now getting around to posting this.  I didn’t want to post before hand since it was my gift to my hubby this year and yes he follows my blog!!  If you don’t already follow, please sign up so you can automatically get my new posts!

I find it hard to get a great gift for Valentine’s Day and sometimes other occasions too.  One thing that is always a great idea is consumables!!  Especially if you know what that person likes, this way it is not a waste of money and they can’t return it!!

My husband loves beer so what says I love you more than a tower of it??

I decided to do my base of the cake/tower in a beer that I knew was a favorite at my house.  This particular beer is also in a white, gold and red can …. perfect for the romantic occasion.  I used a large round cardboard cake platter for the bottom level and it took 13 beer cans.

The next level was a little smaller, I just cut the cardboard down about an inch.  This layer is where I went to Total Wine and cruised the beer isle. I used 12 beers for this layer, I picked out interesting beers that I thought my hubby would like, all while making sure they were the same height so the next layer would be stable.

The third tier of this tower consisted of 4 small bottles of red label chimay beer, one of his favorites!!  To top it all off I got a pink bottle of Rogue Chocolate Pretzel beer!  Haven’t tried it yet but their maple bacon one was delish so hoping this is too.  Also added in a couple cigars and a big Reese’s peanut butter heart!

Brian loved it, it came out super cute and was a big hit!  He drank some that night and had his cigar after dinner. This concept can me done so many different ways with pretty much any theme!  Would be super cute for a St. Patty’s Day party!!

    Um…no words! Okay, just a few. 😉 I basically buy the same thing for my hubby for b-days & V-Day (Men are SO hard to shop for aren’t they? Beer is always a good idea!), but it didn’t turn out anything like this!!! I just filled a plastic beverage tub with his favorite beers & snacks, but THIS takes it to a whole new level of awesomeness! The cigar is a nice touch that I had not thought about. I will have to try this next time; that Brian fellow is a lucky man!
