Every year, RateBeer compiles its list of best breweries in the world, and while the site does a great job of mixing in foreign offerings, this year’s has a distinctly American feel to it.

5. Bell’s Brewery

4. Russian River Brewing Co.

3. Three Floyds Brewing

2. Hill Farmstead

1. AleSmith Brewing Company

When it comes to perfect Valentine’s Day gifts, there’s almost nothing that competes with the collaborative cocktail kits released in partnership between Oak & Eden and Cheeky Cocktails. Available in Espresso and Napa options, each kit combines a unique Oak & Eden spirit, Cheeky syrup and a rocks glass that will take any holiday to the next level–whether you’re celebrating solo or with your special someone. As if all that wasn’t enough, you even get 10% off with code COOLWHISKEY at checkout (thru the end of February), so you have no reason not to pick yourself up some as well when you get your Oak & Eden Cocktail Kits today.
