OK humans, we have noticed that a lot of you track where planets and stars that you are aware of were when you were born. Apparently, this defines your basis personality traits. We wonder what effect your planet’s location had on us so many years ago when we were birthed…
We dedicate this article to our human friend Matt Brady at Astronomy Aleworks, who has little faith in the power of planetary and stellar alignments, despite running a brewery all about such things. They even have two aliens on staff (albeit, inflatable, but still…) Cheers Matt and to your crew.
After all, many of you already look to your Zodiac signs for everything from relationship insight to career advice — even how to plan your day-to-day activities. It only makes sense that the predispositions and natural tendencies of each sign would also be able to reveal what beers are best for you, right?
Are the stars accurate when it comes to beer? We have no idea! Check your sign to see if the craft beer soothsayers at Tavour nailed your tastes. Then, get started on putting together a box of beer for yourself, or an ideal gift box for all the other craft enthusiasts in your life!
Aries Beer Delivery
(March 29 – April 19)
Sometimes seen as the hotheads of the Zodiac, Aries signs are tenacious, eager, dynamic, and super competitive. People born under this sign are best suited to a brew that will help them cool their jets, while still keeping up with their energetic nature.
Aries, the beer delivery for you consists of Lagers, Pilsners, Kolsches, and the like.
And, dear Aries, perhaps none of these are better for the job than Grandpa Bills Pils from Junkyard Brewing in Minnesota. The brewers added a generous dry-hopping of Citra for light notes of tangerine and a touch of pithy grapefruit that top the biscuity body like marmalade. And, because Junkyard serves it up in massive 24.5 oz cans, it’s tailor-made for your more show-offy side.
Taurus Beer Delivery
(April 20 – May 20)
Taurus — the Bull. A fitting symbol of the resolute and hard-working nature of those born under this sign. But, as hard-working and steadfast as Taurus signs are, they’re also known for their passion and creativity.
Taurus, your box of brews is loaded with the hoppy stuff. IPAs, Pale Ales, Amber Ales — these are all great fits for a Taurus. The juicy nature of these beers makes them as dependable as you are, while the vast array of fruity character that the hops impart can speak to your creative side, too.
For a beer best suited to you, Taurus, try Evangelion XV [Arael] IPA. The metalhead brewers at Adroit Theory in Virginia do the hard work necessary to craft IPAs that consistently sell out before they’ve even hit the tap. And this one, double dry-hopped with 5 varieties of hops and laced with milk sugar, is a mosaic of creamy mango and candied orange flavors.
Gemini Beer Delivery
(May 21 – June 20)
Gemini signs are the chameleons of the Zodiac. They’re ruled by the planet Mercury, who in Roman mythology was messenger to the gods. And, they’re characterized as the Twins, Castor and Pollux. As such, Geminis are known for being quick-witted, adventurous, and adaptable.
When you need a drink, dear Gemini, you need brews that are expressive and boundary pushing. Fruited Sour Ales and Dark Beers with added ingredients are a good place to start.
Whatever you do choose, you won’t go wrong with beers from Evil Twin. From a Sour Ale brewed with actual Mountain Dew syrup to a s’more Stout made with real marshmallows and chocolate, Evil Twin’s coveted beers are sure to quench your thirst for adventure, and give you some extra bragging material.
Cancer Beer Delivery
(June 21 – July 22)
Those born under the sign of the Crab are known for being protectors with strong intuitions. They may seem guarded or even crabby (get it?!) when you first meet one, but if they let you stick around, you’ll find that they’re deeply compassionate and nurturing people.
For these reasons, dear Cancer, the best beer delivery for you brims with spontaneously fermented Farmhouse Ales.
This beer style is well attuned to your proclivities, Cancer, because behind each bottle are extremely nurturing hands, months of work, and a very watchful eye. For a taste of some of the best there is, turn to Texas’ Jester King Brewery for a bottle of Nocturn Chrysalis. It’s a seriously fruit-forward sipper brewed with 6lbs of blackberries per gallon and aged in oak barrels. And right now, the only way to get it outside of the taproom is in your beer delivery!
Leo Beer Delivery
(July 23 – August 22)
What to say about Leos other than they are the stars of the show — really! Leo signs are ruled by the sun, and so they shine as confident, natural-born leaders. They also have a penchant for drama and show, which makes them very enjoyable in social settings.
The beer delivery for you, my Leo friend, is filled both with showstopping selections and shareable treats.
When looking to combine the two, you may find yourself drawn to one of the fruit-packed Slushy beers from 903 Brewers. With hundreds of pounds of fruit loaded into each batch, these beers are dramatically flavorful and always a crowd pleaser. In fact, they’re a favorite for beer deliveries — online retailer Tavour says their members score nearly every one with 4.10+ ratings!
Virgo Beer Delivery
(August 23 – September 22)
Virgo signs are some of the great thinkers of the Zodiac. They are very practical and analytical, with an aptness for planning ahead. Because of that, Virgos aren’t big on surprises — it’s important for them to maintain a sense of control and security whenever possible.
So, dear Virgo, you should seek a more straightforward selection for your beers: classic West Coast IPAs, Kettle Sours, or an adjunct-free Stouts and Porters are all great fits for you.
Perhaps you will enjoy a bottle of The Stout from Nebraska’s Zipline Brewing This thick, roasty brew boasts flavors of dark cherry, molasses, and bittersweet chocolate. But, there are no confectionery adjuncts hiding in its black-as-night depths — just classic, velvety Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout mastery.
Libra Beer Delivery
(September 23 – October 22)
Known for being lovers of all things aesthetically pleasing and mentally stimulating, Libra signs are all about seeking harmony in all its forms. They are detail-oriented, multi-faceted, and abundantly expressive.
Dear Libra, your craft beer box comprises brews that not only taste beautiful, but also look beautiful!
Scorpios are often viewed by the other signs as rebels without a cause — always starting drama or stirring the pot. In reality, Scorpios are passionate people who aren’t afraid to blaze a trail of their own, regardless of what others think.
Scorpio, your beer delivery is going to be chock full of beers that are as courageous and expressive as you are.
Something like the Spicy Pickle Gose from Urban Artifact is a good starting point for you, Scorpio. This Cincinnati brewery is always pushing the limits on how much fruit they can get away with adding to their beers. And their Spicy Pickle may sound strange but it’s beloved by fans — the brewers make it with over 1,000 lbs of cucumbers and then season it with fresh dill, seasalt, coriander, and a piquant blend of spicy peppers for a tongue-tingly kick.
Sagittarius Beer Delivery
(November 22 – December 21)
Oftentimes, Sagittarius signs are called the world travelers of the Zodiac. They’re born adventurers with a good sense of humor and a knack for empathy. The best brews for a Sagittarius will be ones that are bubbly, bright, and world-renowned.
You can give yourself something to smile about, dear Sagittarius, when you’re filling up on Fruited Sours and top-notch Hazy IPAs.
Anytime you’re in the mood for something fruity and puckering, rely on Drekker Brewing. Sippers in their Braaaaaaains Double Fruit Smoothie Sour series are so packed with fruit, it’s almost ridiculous. They’re also ridiculously sought-after by beer nerds.
Or, if you’re in the mood for hops, you can’t go wrong with pretty much anything from Other Half in your beer delivery. This is one of the most hyped IPA houses in the country, and their Double Dry Hopped Oh… Dream Oat Cream IPA is a delicious taste of why they’re so beloved. It’s a Citra, Galaxy, and Motueka-hopped Hazy IPA brewed with lactose and loads of oats, so it’s super smooth, luscious and fruity.
Capricorn Beer Delivery
(December 22 – January 19)
Don’t tell a Capricorn to make something perfect, because they will do it. Capricorns are ambitious characters, with a fondness for following the rules and keeping traditions. Their thirst is best quenched with the traditional beer styles, as well as options that are oldies but goodies.
Your most suitable brews, dear Capricorn, are ones that bubble with the tried and true flavors of German and Belgian styles — the real OGs of beer.
To satisfy your cravings for authentic Belgian beer, look to the Bend, Oregon crew at Monkless Belgian Ales. They ONLY craft Belgian style brews, and they craft beers like their GABF Gold Medal winning Dubbel Or Nothing Belgian Dubbel Ale with only Belgian ingredients.
For your traditional German styles, Capricorn, turn to Wayfinder. Beers like their Funeral Bock — a double decocted Black Bockbier — are about as true-to-style as you can find without traveling to Munich.
Aquarius Beer Delivery
(January 20 – February 18)
It’s difficult to pin an Aquarius sign with any one description; they’re constantly adapting, changing, and redefining themselves. Because of that, they’re seen as rebellious signs, when really, Aquarians are just remarkably individualistic and forward-thinking.
Your beer delivery deserves to be as eccentric and progressive as you are, dear Aquarius. That’s why, you can’t be limited to one beer style, but you will benefit from a selection of new-age brews.
An ideal choice for you would be a hoppy beer that employs the magical potency of lupulin powder. Aquarius, your beer delivery needs a brew like Can Phone, made by Fair State Brewing Cooperative and BlackStack Brewing. They craft this frothy hazebomb with a cutting-edge blend of flavor-strong Idaho 7 and Mosaic Hop cones, super-concentrated Mosaic Cryo and Columbus Cryo Hops, and HBC 692 — a.k.a. Talus Hops, one of craft beer’s newest and most sought-after varieties.
Pisces Beer Delivery
(February 19 – March 20)
Intelligent, creative, and deeply empathetic, Pisces signs are natural born caretakers. They’re affectionate by nature and emotionally intelligent, so they love an equal give and take. Similarly, they prioritize self-care, both for themselves and for others.
Dear Pisces, when you need some self-care beer therapy, load up your delivery with brews that ooze with “treat yo’ self” deliciousness.
Try the Hazelnut Coffee and Cakes Imperial Stout from Hubbard’s Cave when you want to treat yourself to breakfast for dinner. Each sip of this sumptuous Dark Beer tastes like a sticky-sweet piece of coffee cake slathered in maple syrup and topped with crushed nuts!
Or, you could go for something a little lighter and stuff some cans of Blueberry Crumble Wheat Ale from Lil Beaver Brewery into your beer delivery! The brewers add blueberries, vanilla, and cinnamon to the drinkable body of a Wheat Beer. And it’s fantastic for your mid-afternoon beer snack cravings.
No matter what your Zodiac sign is, craft beer is for everybody and anybody. Besides, between your Moon sign, Rising sign, and ruling planets, you’re likely to feel the influences of other signs at some time or another.
On the Tavour app, you can order rare and hard-to-get brews for yourself and your loved ones, and get your ideal beer delivery shipped straight to your door.
