Great Date Ideas (in Mesa, AZ area, but similar options available in most cities.)

Christmas as the Focus:
Christmas Lights Display at Church of Latterday Saints Temple
Ice Skating at Downtown Mesa
Window Shopping Downtown, Mesa Art Fest weekend with holiday bits
Catching the local Christmas play/pageant
Ugly Sweater Hunt - Instagram winner...
Making Gingerbread Houses

Beer as the Focus:

First, look up the local breweries, if any, in your area!  I found this webpage, Craftbeer, with a searchable and extensive list of breweries, with notes as to on site, off site, or both sales.  The website links aren't all up to date/working, but the breweries are around. 

Places to Shop:
Brew Your Own Store
Total Wine and Beer - by IKEA
Trader Joe's
World Market

Places To Go Drink/Eat:
 The Harp Irish Pub = 1744 S Val Vista Dr, Mesa AZ 85204
"Our  friendly  staff, great food, beer and live music every Friday night will have you coming back!"  Not just beer, but a nice selection of beer in a happy drinking environment.

Beer Research Institute = 1641 S. Stapley Dr, Mesa AZ 85204
"Come enjoy The Beer Research Institute's finely crafted beers and scratch menu. We can't wait to see  you ! Cheers!"

Desert Brewing Co. = 150 West Main Street, Mesa, AZ 85201
A brewing company with their own tap room, serving micro brews, food, and having live music most every weekend!

The Yard House = 7014 East Camelback Rd Suite 612, Scottsdale, AZ 85251 or 9401 West Westgate Blvd, Glendale, AZ  85305
Great food and an absolutely overwhelming number of beers on tap - over 100!  The piping along makes up part of the atmosphere of the actually bar, with the lines all winding their way to the bar.
