When shopping for the beer lover in your life this holiday season, try something different. While it’s easy to hit the Beer Store or LCBO for a few their favourite beverages, make it a memorable gift by thinking outside the uh…bottle! Check out our guide to unique gifts for beer lovers.
This Indie88 feature is presented with Grolsch – Enjoy a swingtop and cheers to a new year!
Snapback Hat with Bottle Opener
A good friend will give you the shirt off their back, but a great friend will pop the cap off your beer with their hat. Beer Paws’ snapback hat with a bottle opener on the bill is the lid that keeps on giving.
USB One Bottle Cooler
Having a cold one readily available while working away at your terminal is key. Neon’s mini-fridge cooler holds a single can and it’s powered by USB, so you can have a coldie ready to go when it’s quitting time.
When it comes to coolers, Yeti is royalty. They’re the most durable coolers in the world, capable of withstanding a pumpkin bomb from several stories above! Pack anywhere from 16-to-260 cans of beer in a Yeti and hit the outdoors or just sit and sip at a cottage. They don’t come cheap, but they’ll last a lifetime.
The Chillsner promised you’ll never have to deal with warm beer again. Simply freeze it, and insert into any bottle beer and drink ’em ice cold all night long.
Because you don’t want to show up to the growler party and spend the night wondering if you’re drinking somebody else’s beer: Arrive armed with your own custom one. Uncommon Goods will etch whatever you want into one of their handmade stoneware growlers for just under $115.
Fizzics Waytap Draught System
Get an authentic-looking pub draught at home with Fizzics’ Waytap Beer Dispenser. It uses fluid and gas technology instead of CO2, works with most 12-25oz cans and 12oz bottles, and is powered by just four AA batteries.
Wooden Beer Caddy
Car your beer in style with Uncommon Goods’ wooden beer caddy with a bottle opener. They’re handcrafted out of reclaimed redwood beams.
If a proper Yeti cooler is out of your price range, there’s a great option that will keep your individual beer chilled all day long. The Rambler Colster promises to keep your beer cold for so long “you’ll have to rethink your understanding of a few natural laws.”
Leather Bike Six-Pack Holder
Ditch that backpack filled with loose beer bottles for Fyxation’s leather beer caddy. Your ride from the LCBO to the party will never be smoother. It fastens to your top tube and seat tube offering a secure way to transport that delicate cargo. Please remember to drink responsibly!
Uniform Beer Glasses
If you’re looking to shop local, Cocktail Emporium on Queen Street has you covered. They offer a wide range of beer glasses, with everything from skull-shaped options to some more grown-up steins and pint glasses.
