Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and the time to pick up the perfect gift for your sweetheart is running short.

Sure, you could go for the stereotypical box of chocolates, or the done-to-death teddy bear, but if your special someone happens to be a beer lover, you have a real opportunity here to surprise them with something special — a really exceptional bottle of brew.

But now the tricky part begins, since there are hundreds of thousands of options to choose from, and you’re looking for the “Oh my god, how did you know?!” reaction, and not the dreaded “Oh… thanks.” To save you from racking your brain wondering whether Budweiser counts as a microbrew (it doesn’t, ever), here are a few ideas for the best possible brews to buy your beer-obsessed one and only.

Of course, while these beers are ranked as some of the best in the world, every beer drinker has their own personal favorites, from IPAs to rich stouts, so it’s best to know their preference and go from there. Remember, paying attention to your significant other is what shows them you care.
