Beer lovers will tell you that beer direct from the tap almost always tastes better than bottled or canned beer. Hopsy sells a home tap ($200) that allows drinkers to sip fresh beer from the comfort of their own homes. Draft-quality beer without having to put on real pants? That’s every beer lover’s dream.
Having a well-insulated growler is essential for beer lovers who take craft beer to gatherings and on camping trips. It’s definitely worth investing in a high-quality growler that can be packed up and easily transported. Hydro Flask makes a 64-ounce insulated growler ($65) that keeps drinks cool for extended periods of time.
For a seasoned home brewer or a first-timer, a how-to book is going to be helpful. “How to Brew: Everything You Need to Know to Brew Great Beer Every Time” ($15) teaches them how to make their own quality craft beer at home.
Perfect for cooler weather, a beer caramelizer ($35) is a great gift for beer lovers who enjoy enhancing the taste of their favorite brews. This device comes with a handle and a stainless steel tip, which is meant to be placed in a campfire and then thrust into a cold brew. The heat caramelizes the beer and increases the depth of the flavor.
Depending on your giftee’s favorite brew—whether it’s an IPA, a light beer or an amber lager—there’s a glass specifically made to enhance that beer’s natural flavors. If you’re not sure which beer your giftee loves most, get a variety pack of beer glasses ($35) that features a glass for each kind of brew.
Forget those conventional rectangular coolers—gift the beer lover in your life something far more exciting, like an outdoor cooler ($61) that doubles as a patio table. It’s large enough to fit up to 40 beer cans, and if your beer lover lives with a wine lover, this cooler fits several wine bottles, as well.
We love when beer shows up in places where it doesn’t belong, like cheddar bacon dip and soap. You didn’t misread that—Amazon sells a 6-pack of beer soap ($35), which is truly a gift that only a beer lover would appreciate. They feature scents like Apricot Wheat, Honey Pilsner and Vanilla Porter.
True beer lovers enjoy experiencing the best beers the world has to offer. You may not have the budget to take them on a tour of the country’s best microbreweries, but you can bring highly-rated craft brews to them with a Beer of the Month Club subscription ($42/month). It delivers 12 beers in each box.
This hilarious parody book belongs on the bookshelf or coffee table of the beer lover in your life. Goodnight Brew ($17) mimics the popular children’s book Goodnight Moon, and follows a crew of animals who work at a brewery as they shut the facility down for the night. Look forward to hearing this story read aloud over and over each time you show up at your beer lover’s house.
Pabst, An Excavation of Art ($51) is a gorgeous coffee table book of photography that features shots of the abandoned Pabst Brewery in Milwaukee. It’s a fantastic gift for beer lovers who enjoy history and stunning visuals, and makes a beautiful centerpiece for their living area. See where Pabst Blue Ribbon lands in our ranking of the most popular beer brands.
