100 Gifts for the Beer Lover

From Sour Cucumber Ales to Remote Control Coolers

— December 24, 2016 — Lifestyle
Whether it is an obscure craft brew or an app-controlled cooler, these gifts for the beer lover are sure to impress.

For those who are always on the hunt for new and innovative brews, there are plenty of creative craft beers that offer a unique drinking experience. With offbeat ingredients such as boiled lobster, prickly pear cactus and even cooked pork scraps, these beers go far beyond the standard combination of barley and hops.

While a unique brew is a great stocking-stuffer, there are plenty of other gifts for the beer lover that can be enjoyed all year long. For those with simple taste, why not opt for a handy drinking accessory such as a one-handed bottle opener or a bike frame beer carrier. However, for the true beer aficionado in your life, a home-brewing appliance such as the 'Minibrew' is a perfect option for enjoying freshly crafted pints on-demand.
