Finding the perfect gift for the beer lover in your life can be challenging — especially if you yourself are not a total beer geek. The trick is straddling the three-way conundrum of things that a beer lover will enjoy, things that a beer lover doesn’t already have, and things that a beer lover will actually use.
It isn’t an easy balance to strike. That’s why we’ve built the perfect list of gifts to make any beer expert happy, spanning glassware, tools, and apparel.
The Spiegelau IPA Glass Set
Chances are, the beer lover in your life is also an IPA lover (or at least not an IPA hater). Spiegelau collaborated with a panel of master brewers to engineer the ultimate IPA glass. Its shape is designed to enhance the flavor and aroma of big, hoppy beers, elevating each IPA drinking experience.
Spiegelau Lager Glass Set
If there’s one thing that the Germans know better than anyone, it’s lager. The German glassmaking company Spiegelau shows off that expertise with its custom lager glass that is designed to bring out the optimal aroma and flavor of your beer.
Spiegelau Pilsner Glass Set
Remember that German expertise? Well, few light beers are as refined as the perfectly clean and crisp pilsner. You’d be hard pressed to find a true beer geek who doesn’t appreciate a good pilsner, and these glasses make sure that it tastes exactly like it’s supposed to.
Spiegelau Stout Glass Set
Cracking open a hearty stout in the dead of winter (or in the middle of summer, no judgment here) is a heartwarming experience. But drinking a stout out of the bottle isn’t as fulfilling or satisfying as drinking one out of the perfect stout glass.
Magnetic Drop Catch Bottle Opener
The person you’re buying a gift for probably drinks a lot of beers. This Magnetic Drop Catch Bottle Opener will make sure memories of beers past aren’t lost forever.
U.S. Country and State Beer Cap Maps
Once your favorite beer lover has caught all of those bottle caps, they’re going to need a place to show them off. For that, you need to buy a map that has slots to mount all of your beer caps. As soon as it’s filled up, it can be hung on the wall for all to see and fawn over.
Nice Hops T-Shirt
Beer lovers wear their hearts on their sleeves, so why not let them wear their passions on their shirts, too? Every craft beer lover will jump to wear their Citra&Centennial&Cascade&Chinook. tee. Without those hops, there would be no big craft beer movement, and without that, beer lovers would be lost.
Craft A Brew
At a certain point, every true beer geek goes through the rite of passage that is homebrewing. Make sure that process goes smoothly with Craft A Brew, one of the most reliable homebrew kits on the market.
So your beer lover has all the proper glassware, plenty of shirts, and all brewing and drinking accessories they need. We’re willing to bet soap made with real IPA will knock their drinking socks off.
