Valentine’s Day in Loveland, My Big Date, lets participants experience Loveland, Colorado’s coffee, brewery, distillery and foodie scene. The Brewery & Spirits Tour package sold out quickly, and there are only seats left on our Brunch & Brew Tour. I am one of your My Big Date hosts and I guarantee that it’s like nothing else you have ever experienced.
You and your mate will board the NOCO Short Bus Tours bus at The Promenade Shops at Centerra in East Loveland. The bus will transport you to beautiful downtown Loveland where you will start your morning with a coffee tasting at Loco Artisan Coffeehouse. Owner, Tom Helm, is pairing three of his handcrafted, locally roasted coffees with a savory treat for our guests.
The next stop is Loveland Aleworks where you’ll be greeted with one of Aleworks’ famous beermosas. Next up is a four-course brunch that has been expertly paired with four different beers. Loveland catering company, Taste, worked with Aleworks to create these unique brunch items. See brunch menu here.
Once you’re happily full of beer and good food, your group will be guided down 4th Street to witness Loveland Fire & Ice Festival, taking place on Feb. 13 and 14. Read all about this event here. This festival includes the annual Loveland Snow Sculpture competition that features 12 snow sculpture teams. While Sunday will be a quieter day, the sculptures will still be lined up along 4th Street for viewing.
Your downtown stroll will end at Crow Hop Brewing where you will enjoy a cupcake and beer pairing. Dana of B. Sweet Cupcakes developed specialty beer cupcakes just for My Big Date. You can wash down these tasty creations with a tasting flight of Crow Hop’s award winning beers.
Once you’re finished you will be transported via the NOCO Short Bus back to The Promenade Shops at Centerra, but not before receiving a special gift bag filled with Loveland swag, such as free beer tokens, two for one ice skating coupons, chocolate, dinner discounts and more. In fact, our drop off location is right next to the ice rink at The Promenade Shops, so you can, if you wish, get off the bus and go straight to the rink for a twirl on the ice with your sweetheart.
There are Brunch & Brew tours available on February 14 and 15, 2015 with limited seating available. This exclusive tour is available for purchase at ValentinesDayinLoveland.com.
