Buying for the craft beer lover can be hard; whether they’re just getting into craft beer or have spent years dedicated to the craft, beer lovers tend to be picky. That being said, there are some universal truths that apply to all beer lovers: they like trying new things, they like their beer cold (mostly) and of course they love their local scene.
So with those truths in mind, we’ve put together some ideas to help you find the perfect gift for the beer lover on your list this year.
Local Brewery Gift Cards
First and foremost, if you’re thinking of getting a gift for the craft beer lover in your life then think about getting them some gift cards to their favourite local breweries. This year has been incredibly hard on breweries and by supporting them you’re ensuring that they have a chance to stay in business, and your beer lover gets some great beer out of it. That’s a win-win right there.
This cooler is amazing. Yeti makes some of the best cooler and tumbler products on the market and this bag is no different. If you’re looking to get a gift to the beer lover who likes to bring their drinks outdoors, you can’t go wrong with this exceptionally high quality kit.
For those that still enjoy picking up a growler at their local brewery, this GrowlerWerks product helps keep things as fresh as possible. It has vacuum insulation and CO2 injector, meaning you’ve got tap fresh beer for weeks, right at your fingertips. They may never go back to their old growlers again.
We’ve recommended Spiegelau before, but there’s no denying that they are some high quality glasses and it makes a difference when it comes to how a beer–especially IPA–is enjoyed. You won’t go wrong getting a beer lover glass wear if they don’t have it already.
Since we’ve got all the time in the world right now, and are drinking more beer at home than ever before, why not document what hidden gems are being uncovered? This craft beer journal will help the beer lover remember those rare brews they absolutely loved, and those they didn’t.
