Beer Cap Map
If your giftee loves to travel, get them this beer cap map. A standard map has 80 slots to fill with caps from breweries near and far. Personalize it with a name, phrase or date engraved into the wood. Talk about one of the best gifts for beer lovers!
Beer Can Insulator
No matter how much your friend loves beer, a warm beverage is just not enjoyable. Luckily, this hopsulator trio solves that problem. The can cooler keeps their favorite brew chilled for hours. We love that it’s compatible with 12 and 16 ounce cans (yes, even the slim type). It also comes with a leakproof lid in case they prefer to pour their drink into the tumbler.
Around the World Beer Bucket
For the person who dreams of yelling prost! at Oktoberfest or clinking salute! in the Italian countryside, gift them the next best thing to an all-expenses-paid trip. The Around the World Beer Bucket from Gourmet Gift Baskets features 12 beers from, you guessed it, around the globe. They’ll also enjoy a bevy of their favorite bar snacks, including sausage, cheese, nuts, crackers and popcorn. Bonus: This gift comes in a metal vessel that doubles as an ice bucket.
Beer Drop Subscription
Food of the month clubs make an irresistible gift, and so does this craft beer subscription. Choose from a Beer Drop gift card to let them choose their brews or select the beers for them via the gift subscription. Whatever route you choose, you can’t go wrong with this gift for beer lovers.
A true beer aficionado definitely doesn’t have room in their kitchen fridge for all of those brews. So, give them room to expand with a dedicated mini-fridge.

A conversation piece and cold beer koozie all in one, these cold beer coats are perfect for camping or hanging by the bonfire. They keep hands warm and craft brew chilled. They’re way more fun than traditional koozies. Fill ’em with your favorite cheap beer, then enjoy!
MLB Baseball Bat Bottle Openers
If the beer lover in your life is also a huge baseball fan, you have to check out this baseball bat bottle opener. Each handle is made from a bat used in a game from the baseball team of your choice and is numbered with which specific game the bat was used. Talk about a great gift for dad!
These popular conversation pints are one of the best gifts for beer lovers or anyone who enjoys hosting get-togethers. The glasses pair talking points (think “the best job” or “the quirkiest date”). It’s perfect for just two people or a group. The talking points are endless with these silly glasses! If you see a pint glass with a bulge, here’s what it’s for.
Mini Beer Pong
Beer pong is always a good idea, as is this mini beer pong set. The approximately two-foot-long board is equipped with 10 tiny cups on each side for players to catapult a mini ball into. It’ll challenge even the most decorated beer pong champions!
First & Last Drinking Game
For a true drinking game, turn to First & Last. The simple card game has friends quickly respond to cues to avoid being the player that has to take a sip of their beer. It can be played with 3-20+ players, making it a great game for any size party.
Plinko Bottle Opener
This Plinko bottle opener will add a ton of fun to any home bar! The cast iron bottle opener will stand up to the toughest bottle caps and the prompts at the bottom of the board make for a low-key drinking game.
Beer Foaming Stones
Has your beer lover ever opened a beer to find it’s less carbonated than it should be? These beer foaming stones are just the ticket! Handmade in Minnesota, these soapstone nucleators react with the beer in your glass to create tiny bubbles that make the beer creamier, richer and taste like it’s fresh from the tap. These make a great groomsmen gift!

If your loved one always has a full beer fridge, you have to get them a BottleLoft. The magnetic strips attach to the top of the fridge and allow up to six beers to be suspended from the shelving. This opens up lots of room for more craft beers. Talk about a genius refrigerator organizer idea!

One of the best parts of visiting a craft brewery is ordering a flight to sample a range of unique brews. Let your loved one re-create that experience with their own beer flight. The gift comes with a wooden board affixed with a chalkboard for labeling the brews. Personalize it with your giftee’s name for an extra special touch. It’s a great personalized wedding gift, too.
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 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 that doubles as a patio table. It’s large enough to fit up to 40 beer cans. It doubles as a gift for wine lovers, as well.
We love when beer shows up in unexpected places, like cheddar bacon dip and yes, even soap. You didn’t misread that—Amazon sells a 6-pack of beer soap, which is truly a gift that only a beer lover would appreciate. They feature scents like Apricot Wheat, Honey Pilsner and Vanilla Porter.
Shower Beer Holder
Nothing beats a cold shower beer. If the beer lover in your life is known for cracking a cold one while getting ready, they need a dedicated shower beer holder that sticks to the shower wall. The shape of the caddy allows it to hold beer and hard seltzers with ease.
This hilarious parody book deserves a prominent space on their bookshelf or coffee table. One of the best gifts for beer lovers, Goodnight Brew mimics the popular children’s book Goodnight Moon.
