craftbeer

There has never been a better time to be a craft beer lover. With more breweries in the U.S. than ever before, finding a tasty pint is easy. But, with discerning palates, wildly creative styles, and hard-to-find bottles, it’s probably best to just let the craft beer lover find their own beer this holiday season. That doesn’t mean you’re out of gift options, however. Here are some of our favorites for the craft beer lover in your life.

Beer Cap Map

Give them a challenge this holiday. The Beer Cap Map requires they try beers from all over the country to fill it. When they do, they’ll be left with an artistic trophy for the wall.

palletmag

Pallet Magazine

Pallet, a new publication from Dogfish Head’s Sam Calagione and others, is the magazine craft beer fans deserve. Instead of reviews and release announcements, Pallet is focused on beer and storytelling, the idea of sharing a pint with someone and hearing what they have to say. It’s as diverse and interesting as the craft beer scene itself.

comicstory

The Comic Book Story of Beer

As much as we love beer, reading about its long history could get dull. That’s why there’s The Comic Book Story of Beer. The wonderfully designed comic book takes you as far back as 7,000 BC and leads you right up to today’s craft revolution. Perfect for cracking with a double IPA or two.

beersaver

Sizzler Beer Saver & Bottle Opener

There will be times when the craft beer fan in your life will open a 22 oz. bomber and not feel like finishing it in one sitting. Sizzler is an opener that also seals a bottle to keep the beer fresh for three more days. Problem solved.

$16
worldsbeerglass

“TeKu” The World’s Beer Glass

If we had to settle on one beer glass to use for the rest of our life, TeKu would be it. It’s appropriate for most beers, and it’s a far better gift  than another set of pint glasses.

$38
beergrowler

Chalkboard Beer Growler

They’ll never forget which brew is in their growler when they use this Chalkboard vessel. After they stop by the brewery or bottle shop, they can simply pull out some chalk and mark the name on the outside.

$32
coffeestout

Coffee Stout Candle

Pouring Founders Breakfast Stout all over the living room is one way to make a room smell like roasty, sweet stout, but a better way is to light the Coffee Stout Candle. The candle will burn for up to 60 hours and release coffee and chocolate scents for the beer lover’s pleasure.

beerkit

Brooklyn Brewery Sorachi Ace Beer Kit

pacificseasalt

Pacific Sea Salt with Hops

Hopheads don’t need to rely solely on their double IPAs to satisfy their desires; this sea salt comes with broken up hop cones to impart an enticing citrus and floral aroma to whatever they’re cooking.

bottleloft

Bottle Loft

The craft beer lover’s fridge is always stocked. Too stocked, actually. The Bottle Loft is a clever way to give them more space for those IPAs and hoppy beers they need to keep fresh.
