Christmas is almost here and, if you’re anything like us, you probably haven’t completed your shopping. The stress is mounting and so are the lines at the mall but don’t worry, we’re here to help.
If there’s someone on your list who is a beer connoisseur, or even just someone who drinks beer, we’ve scoured the internet for 10 gifts sure to please any beer drinker. The prices range from a few dollars to a few hundred dollars. You’ll have to act quick though because shipping is only going to get more expensive with each passing day.
Outdoor Beer Table
There’s nothing better than sitting outside on a warm day, however sometimes it can be challenging to juggle food and drinks, especially if you’re entertaining. Well, the Outdoor Beer Table might be the third hand you’ve always wanted. This wooden table, which stands a little over two feet tall, is designed to hold two cans, bottles or glasses as well as well as a bowl for any food you might be pairing with your beer. It also has a built in can opener, just in case you forgot to grab the bottle opener on your way outside. The table can be purchased from UncommonGoods for $58.
Mosaic Bottle Cap Art By Southern Cap Works
Ian Vanderberg has combined two of his favorite things, art and beer, for a unique gift idea, one that Louisiana-based Abita Brewing Company often shares on Instagram. Vanderberg, who is the owner of Southern Cap Works, creates mosaic art using the bottle caps of his favorite beer. He’s done sports teams, iconic company logos and various animals and he even takes requests, via his Instagram or Facebook accounts, for commissions. The end results are impressive. Prices are available upon request.
BottleLoft Magnetic Bottle Holder
This one might be perfect for your significant other who is tired of dealing with your beer constantly taking up a healthy portion of the refrigerator. The BottleLoft magnetic strips simply stick to the ceiling of your fridge and each strip has three magnets strong enough to hold a bottle of beer – a six-pack per set. It’s a really great way to maximize that unused space or to make way for those leftover dishes. You can find this magnetic holder on UncommonGoods, with each set costing $30.
BierGardeValise Beer Luggage
Have you even taken a beercation and had a difficult time getting that beer home? The BierGardeValise is the ultimate beer carrier that lets you securely travel with your liquids. With room for either eight 16-ounce bottles or nine 12-ounce bottles, there are inserts for whatever size beer you might encounter – and it even has a TSA compliant lock. We’re not sure about flying with it, so just proceed with caution, but it’s a great idea for any frequent road tripper. It’s available through VinGardeValise for $349.
100 Beers Bucket List Scratch Poster
There’s easily 100 different beers that every wannabe beer snob should try during their lifetime and here’s a fun way to keep track. This scratch-off poster features beer from around the world. It comes in an A2 poster size, which is roughly 16 inches by 23 inches. While we’re not sure what efforts are listed on the poster – so keep that in mind before purchasing – we’d be shocked if Heady Topper wasn’t listed. There are different companies making these posters, we recommend Gift Republic’s version for $14.95.
Kegmate 54-Quart Jockey Box Cooler
If you’ve ever been to a brewfest and seen one of the keg coolers, now you can grab one for your next backyard barbecue or if you’re getting into homebrewing. Igloo’s stainless steel cooler is the perfect solution for keeping a beer keg cold, featuring a cooler that can hold up to 54 quarts, a single interchangeable faucet, plus coils and connections. Oh and it features a built-in bottle opener. If you want a keg without some of the hassle, this is the way to do it – and you can get it on Igloo’s website for $279.99
Merrell X Dogfish Head Trail Runner Shoe
If you’re someone who is really into running and enjoys that post-run brew, this shoe is for you. Merrell shoes, one of the most well known designers for mountain footwear, has created a more sustainable shoe based off of their favorite post-run beer: Dogfish Head Brewery’s Sea Quench Ale. This shoe is made mostly of recycled material, with the top portion the equivalent of two recycled water bottles, the midsole made from 10 percent algae and 100 percent recycled laces. But forget all of that, these shoes look like the label of that tart and thirst-quenching beer and have the brewery’s logo prominently featured on the heel. You can order these trail runners from Merrell’s website for $110, in men’s and women’s sizes.
Freezer Chill Beer Glass
Do you have a few beers that are sippers, you know, like that 12.1 percent ABV bourbon barrel-aged stout? Well, here’s a gift that will help keep your beer cold much longer. This set of two beer glasses features double premium shatter-resistant glass walls to eliminate scalding or sweating and a cork sleeve so your hand won’t freeze trying to hold this 16-ounce glass. All you have to do is stick them in the freezer for a few hours and then you’re ready for the coldest beer possible, to drink at your own pace. We’re not sure if they’re dishwasher safe, however. This set can be purchased from Huckberry for $50.
Beeropoly Board Game
It’s no secret that Monopoly games can last for what feels like forever but here’s a game focusing on beer that you’ll want to play around the holidays. Just a handful of friends and enjoy Beeropoly. It comes complete with wooden board, beer caps and dice and has the feel of Monopoly without all of the real estate, requiring players to drink at certain points. Think of it as a board game version of Kings, thanks to commands like “make a rule” and “never have I ever.” There’s also a community cup and the last person standing has to drink it all. Good luck with that – we recommend getting a cheap, light beer for this game. This is another product available through UncommonGoods and will cost $35. It sounds like a lot of fun.
Hamm’s Beer Label T-Shirt
This one is kind of self-explanatory. If you know someone who likes vintage clothing and vintage beer, Hamm’s was a Minnesota-based brewery that was founded in 1865 and once the fifth largest brewery in the United States. It’s making a comeback these days, especially by hipsters, but’s probably what your grandfather drank. This specific shirt, which is a blend of polyester and cotton, is available through Wear Your Beer for $24.99.
