" I love beer "is not the stigmatized statement it used to be. With tons of quality beers available in the most remote markets, A-OK is a beer snob (in the most positive sense). Here are some gift ideas for the beer lover in your life.
For just the right thing: Libbey Craft brews different beers (30 USD)
One of the The first things you'll find out about the different beers is that they are best served in carefully selected glasses, highlighting the flavor and color of each brew.This starter kit will give you one of each glass designed specifically for the wider varieties of lager, porter, Belgian ale, yeast wheat and two general purpose bar glasses Purchase multiple kits if your gift recipient often entertains other beer lovers.
For demonstrating their collection: Bottle Cap Displays (various)
If your recipient likes beer so much that it's part of their home decor, a bottle cap display may be the perfect complement. These woodcrops are perfect for beer lovers who specialize in local microbreweries, but more general displays can also be found in album or basket form. The more they drink, the faster they decorate.
For Reliable Pop-Topping: Bar-Key Bottle Openers (12 USD)
There must be a million different bottle openers, but for our money there is nothing more beautiful than the classic latch key. These stainless steel openers are large and easy to grasp, so the user will not cramp when serving bottles in a dozen, and the loop at the end makes them easy to find on nails or pegs. But if you lose one, do not worry: they are cheap enough to buy in large quantities and distribute throughout the house.
For the perfect serving temperature: Whynter Drinks Refrigerator (220 USD)
Many craft beers and microbrews contain serving suggestions for the temperature. It is not very practical to swap the entire refrigerator for a single glass of beer, but this handy drinks cabinet has a manual temperature control of 30 degrees Fahrenheit by the mid-1960s, which should cover most beers. As a bonus you can show through the transparent door what you have just chilled. The removable shelves allow the user to accommodate bottles and cans of various sizes.
Dropping Beer Knowledge: Unlabeled Board Game ($ 30)
If your gift recipient introduces an expert to each type of beer, get this board game to prove it – or throw it over. Have a party and ask each guest to bring a bottle of unlabeled beer, then take a look to see who can guess the style or even the exact label. Of course it's the kind of game that gets more entertaining the longer you decide to keep playing it.
For Sharing Love: EdgeStar KC2000 Kegerator ($ 469)
Nothing is better than the taste of a draft beer. For those who accept nothing less, a kegerator (bar-style combined barrel cooler and tap) is a great investment in a house bar, a patio or a deck. This model is relatively cheap and can handle a large barrel from your local dealer or wholesaler. The CO2 tank for the tap can be mounted internally or externally.
For Homebrew Curious: Northern Brewer Craft Beer Making Kit ($ 50-60)
The ultimate expression of the appreciation of beer is self-realization, and that is surprisingly simple. Previously, the "Mr. The Beer Line was the first choice for an introductory course in homebrewing, but Northern Brewer has outperformed this leg with a simpler, cheaper kit design that achieves the same high quality results. You can even choose which type of beer you want to start with: variations of the kit include the ingredients for brewing wheat, brown ale, Irish red, IPA, double IPA or pumpkin. Select the product you're looking for on the Amazon page and keep the instructions and tools to make variations for a truly personalized drinking experience.
