So you have a lover of all things beer on your list of people who have been good this year, but not quite sure what to get them other than a couple of cases. Here’s a few easy gifts that they’ll love:
Beer of the Month Club
A quick search of the internet reveals all kinds of these clubs. Here are a few to check out:
If you caught my post about the Spiegelau event I attended, then you know about the importance of drinking your beer from the proper glass. So, if you generously gave the gift of beer every month for the next year, why not provide your beer lover with the proper glass as well. You can grab a set of beer glasses here.
Your beer lover has a delicious beer and the proper glass to enjoy it from. So why not further educate them on the beverage that they love. There are tons of great books about beer, from brewing to tips on properly tasting. Perhaps a historical perspective on the beer industry, a specific brewery, or a beer style. Your beer lover isn’t much for words, not a problem, there are some great picture books that will look good on any
coffee I mean beer table. Here are a few options for you:
Oxford Companion to Beer (This is probably on every beer lovers list this year)
So there your have it. A few things any beer lover will…well, for lack of a better word, love. Of course if you love your beer lover, give them the ultimate beer lovers gift…TICKETS TO GABF. Don’t know what GABF is? It is quite possibly the greatest place on earth. GABF = Great American Beer Festival. Held every year towards the end of September, early October in Denver, CO (Oct 11-13, 2012). Yeah, you can’t get tickets for next years party until mid-2012, but a simple card saying, “Hey, this is where you’re going next year,” will make any beer lovers day.
Cheers & Happy Holidays!
