Exactly zero beer drinkers out there are going to mind receiving a six pack of their favorite brew (wrapped or not) this year. But if you’d like to go one step further, these 18 gift ideas for beer drinkers will long outlast that sixer while simultaneously improving all beer drinking activities.
We found brand new ways of storing and serving brews, man cave accessories, and not one but two gifts that bring the love of ale (or lager) into the shower. One gift on our list is specifically for guys with whiskers, and one will deliver the gift of craft brewing each and every month. Pick one from the list and make a beer drinker very happy (add that six pack on top and you’ll officially win gift-giving this year).
Whiskey Peaks Half Dome Beer Glass
We never know what we’re gonna find at the bottom of the beer glass, maybe that’s why we keep looking. At the bottom of these glasses, you’ll find a 3D topographic impression of Half Dome. If your beer drinker is also an outdoorsman, this gift will win extra points.
Brooklyn Brew Shop Beer Making Kit
Give this IPA-making kit from Brooklyn Brew Shop to your favorite beer nut and watch them make the glorious transition from someone who loves beer to a full-fledged home brewer. From the hops and the grain to the jug and the airlock, all the equipment and ingredients are here.
Everyman Ballard Bottle Opener
Sure, it’s fun to get creative when a beer needs opening and you can’t find an opener. But you know what’s even more fun? Drinking beer. This compact, solid steel opener will open beers now and for a few more decades to come. Finished with a steel cable, it goes right on your keychain so you always have it.
The Bucket List: Beer
Lack of travel now assures one thing for certain in the future: exquisitely well-planned vacations. For beer-themed getaways, The Bucket List: Beer provides ideas on where to find the best breweries, pubs, taprooms, and other “beer destinations” across the world. And until travel is ordinary once again, this book also serves as an excellent mental vacation.
Chill Beer Glasses
Standard frozen pint glasses wept. Two layers of glass surround a crystal clear “freezing liquid” in these brilliant beer glasses. Once they’ve sat in the freezer for a few hours, the Chill Beer Glasses are ready to drop the temp on a Bud, Coors, or PBR to that ice cold, ultra-refreshing level.
Stanley Adventure Beer Stein
Does your beer-enthusiast have a stein? They should definitely have a stein. This one from Stanley is a touch more durable than one of those antique porcelain jobbies with the pewter lids. Double-wall insulation keeps beer at the right temp and the 18/8 stainless steel construction means this stein will be saying prost! for decades to come.
Anyone who’s slipped a beer in the freezer for a quick cool down will appreciate this one. Just put the stainless steel rod filled with freeze gel in the freezer. At a moment’s notice, it’s ready to chill room temp beer to a refreshing coldness. Just take a swig from the bottle (to make room) then slide in the Chillsner.
The Draft Top
Light-blocking, lightweight, and unbreakable, the aluminum can is the ideal transportation vessel for beer. But drinking from the can robs you of half the experience, since there’s a piece of metal physically blocking the aromas from your nose. This patented USA-made device slices the top off an aluminum can, creating a safe and smooth cup that grants a full beer experience.
This insulated, pressurized growler basically puts a tap room in their fridge. It holds a growler’s worth (half gallon) of beer, keeps it carbonated for weeks, and protects it from oxidation.
Miir Stainless Tall Boy Pint Cups
They look like a couple of tall boys, but this pair of 18/8 gauge stainless steel pint cups will outlast any can out there, and look good doing it.
Asobu Frosty Beer
Taking the koozie to the next level, Frosty Beer is a stainless steel, insulated home for a bottle of beer that converts to keep cans cold too. Plus the top is a bottle opener.
OtterBox Venture 65 Hard Cooler
With a 65-quart capacity, no one will run out of beer next summer. This US-made cooler holds 36 cans (2 parts ice to 1 part cans) and keeps them cold for up to 16 days.
Stanley Adventure Stacking Beer Pint
Probably the best way to drink beer outdoors, these vacuum insulated, stainless steel pint glasses from Stanley are durable, lightweight, and conveniently stack for packing.
Craft Beer of The Month Club
Each month, twelve craft brews show up at their door. You can give a single month or a full year and since there’s always three of each type of beer, your recipient will probably share.
OtterBox Elevation 64 Growler
The basic size and shape of a brown glass growler from their favorite pub, this one just happens to be insulated and made from unbreakable steel.
Shower Beer Holder
The gift that says: “Go ahead, you’ve earned it. Have a shower beer.” Made from silicone, the can (not bottle!) caddy sticks to any glossy surface.
Duke Cannon Beer Soap
While your beer drinker enjoys a brewski in the shower, he can also lather up with a (big ass) brick of soap that actually contains Old Milwaukee.
Ideal for the sophisticated mustachioed gentleman, this handsome copper contraption (coated in a non-toxic barrier) grips a pint glass for a perfect sip without dampening the ‘stache.
