As a beer lover myself I thought it would be a good idea to share what I would like to get for a beer related gift. There are thousands of items available on Amazon and it can be quite overwhelming if you don't really know where to start.
I have put together a list of 5 Cool Gifts for Beer Lovers that I personally have received or would like to get in the future. We're talking about everything from a beer journal to a beer brewing kit for home. If you're budget is $20 bucks or $170, we have options in this list.
Becoming a craft brewer has never been easier.
Craft beer is obviously a popular segment in the beer category and one thing that every craft beer lover wants to try is brewing their own stuff. It has never been more accessible, with the brewing kits that you can scoop up online in just a few steps.
This Coopers DIY Brewing Kit comes with everything you need to get started including the reusable, patented fermenter which can easily be cleaned and sanitized, 30 reusable bottles, full instructions, and all the small pieces that you need to successful brew a batch of craft beer.
This little gift will get the beer lover excited and even more passionate about how beer is made and what goes into making a really amazing batch of craft beer.
Beer lovers also need a tool to help them keep track of the all the tasty brews that they try (or make) and this handy little journal does just that. I use one of these myself so I can keep track of all my frothy friends. I encourage anyone to keep notes on the beers they try because otherwise it can be really tough to recall all the details that you either enjoyed or disliked about them
I really look forward to opening this journal up in a couple years to review my notes and see how my tastes have changed and evolved over time. This particular journal allows you to track not only individual beers but also the breweries that you visit. It comes with fun stickers to accentuate your experience and have a little more fun with your beer tasting.
This is a great gift for the beer fan you want to get a thoughtful, and usable gift that they'll certainly enjoy.
I hope to see one of these coming my way someday soon, or I might just go ahead and pick this one up for a gift to myself. These hardcore growlers are perfect for the outdoors beer lover and beach goer. It holds your beer cold for 24 hours and looks pretty bad ass in the meantime. It is relatively inconspicuous because it kind of looks like a hardcore canteen or water bottle so hopefully the popo will leave you be when sipping your 2 litres of brew.
All you need to do is swing by your favourite brewery while on your way out camping for the night, or to the beach during the summer. Get a fill, and you're good to go. Try not to shake it up too much as with any growler shaking your beer around will make it flat over time. This is a long term and multi-purpose gift that any beer lover will love and use.
Frank Appleton, who truly is one of the pioneers of the craft beer movement in Canada chronicles his experience in being the original craft or cottage brewers. He tells his story over 50 years working with the big brewers in his early career to the trials and tribulations of starting his own brewery.
This fun book discusses how the craft beer segment started, and was shaped over a period of time. This carving out of this portion of the beer world was evolved into a large competitive segment in Canada and is now one of the biggest challenges to the "big brewers" in the world.
This is a great little book to provide some real background on the brewing industry and how it has been shaped in today's beer world, particularly in Canada. It's a historical review that provides humour, ideas, and how a revolution comes to be.
Any beer lover needs the right glass for every type of beer. This is another gift I have received and it makes a huge difference in the enjoyment of my beer experience. I love pouring a dark stout into a proper stout glass, or having a proper pilsner glass to enjoy my favourite lager style.
This is a great investment and certainly adds to the enjoyment of drinking any type of beer. You get a mix of stemmed and non-stemmed and all have very sturdy bases so we don't spill our liquid gold treasures.
You can get into this glassware set for a very reasonable price and does really provide an extra level of enjoyment when sipping your beers.
