Everyone knows a beer lover. It’s your buddy who always brings a 6-pack to the BBQ. It’s your cousin who can’t stop talking about craft brews.
It’s your sister who owns a growler for every brewery in the state. And it’s you’re father who’s never watched a ball game without the requisite cold one in hand.
Buying gifts for beer lovers isn’t exactly hard or uncommon; there are all sorts of creative options online. Finding something they’ll love as much as their lager is a far more difficult task.
So, we cracked open a bottle (purely for inspiration, of course) and set to work. We think you’ll like what we came up with.
Whether you’re shopping for an ale aficionado or a lover of lambics, we promise we have something for them on this list.
Beer Chiller Sticks
Does anyone actually like warm beer? We don’t think so.
Beer should be cold; no exceptions. Of course, keeping beer cold on a sunny day is a bit of a trick.
Sure, you could use a koozie, but these sticks are much more efficient.
The sticks, which look like long icicles, latch onto the top of the beer. They stay in place while drinking and keep your beer icy cold.
If the beer lover in your life loves to hike or camp, these are perfect for ensuring their lagers stay chilled no matter the ambient temp.
Beer Foaming Stones
Beer lovers know there’s a difference between beers on tap and beers out of a bottle, and it all comes down to the foam. It’s hard to get the perfect foamy topper with a canned beer at home unless you have beer foaming stones.
These stones add bubbles, which creates a more aromatic head. In other words, the beer lover in your life is sure to love them.
DraftPour Beer Dispenser
If the beer stones above aren’t enough, you could go all out for your favorite beer lover.
Gift them a DraftPour Beer Dispenser, and they can convert any bottle or can into an “on-tap” experience. The dispenser can fit up to a 750 ml bottle, so literally, no beer is off-limits.
Shower Beer Holder
Shower beers are an entirely underrated category of beer consumption, one that often gets overlooked. And, speaking from experience here, it’s hard to hold a beer while handling soap.
A beer shower holder is the way to go, and every beer lover should have one.
Beer Cap States
If your friend has pride in their home state and likes to knock back a few now and then, this gift is perfect. These state-shaped display boards are covered in holes for your friend to fill in with their favorite bottle caps.
They look great in man caves and dorm rooms. Plus, who doesn’t like to display their ale-drinking accomplishments?
Beer Infused Hot-Sauce Gift Pack
Beer’s not just for drinking. Hops taste great in food too. Take this beer-infused hot-sauce trio, for example.
Asian Sriracha, Garlic Serrano, and Roasted Chipotle flavors are perfect for beer and taco night. Just make sure your friend has plenty of lagers to serve on the side.
Custom Beer Flights with Glasses
If you know a homebrewer who likes to share their creations, this might be the perfect gift for them. Now they can serve up their DIY brews in style with a custom flight tray.
Just add their monogram or last name to one of these hand-made flight boards. It looks gorgeous, and it’s functional, making it perfect for homebrewers who want to flaunt their talent.
Oktoberfest Ale Beer Brewing Kit
Homebrewing is a mecca for beer lovers, so if you know one that hasn’t started experimenting yet, you have an opportunity. Give them a kit like this and see where their passions lead.
Not only will it be fun for them, but you could benefit too! After all, they’ll need a friend to help taste all their brews!
Bottle Keeper 2.0
Sometimes the beer lover in your life may want to take their lager on the go, but that doesn’t mean they want everyone to know. The Bottle Keeper 2.0 is an insulated bottle holder.
It fits a standard 12 oz bottle inside but looks just like a water bottle outside. Plus, it comes complete with a bottle opener in the lid, so it’ll keep their beers cold and fresh.
Pretzel and Beer Cheese Making Kit
Few things go with a good brew, like a salty pretzel dipped in cheese. We’re salivating just thinking about it!
This kit makes 12 soft pretzels and plenty of creamy beer-based cheese. It’s the perfect gift for the beer lover in your life who doubles as a foodie.
GreatGadgets Beer Holster
For the beer lover who prefers to be handsfree, a beer holster makes a great gift. They can grill, gesture, and give high-fives without spilling a precious sip.
Yet their beer is always at their fingertips. Trust us; they’re going to love it!
Outdoor Beer Table
We love a good picnic or concert in the park, but we can’t stand setting our beer in the dirt.
For one thing, it’s prone to tipping. But also, we respect our brews too much to place them on the ground.
We’re guessing the beer lover in your life feels the same, which is why this table is such a great gift.
It stakes into the ground, so you can take it to any outdoor venue. Plus, it has room for a bowl of snacks between the two cup holders!
StowCo Portable Cooler Bag
This insulated bag holds up to ten cans or six 12-oz bottles of beer. Add them in straight from the fridge, and they’ll stay cold for up to five hours; no ice required.
If you have a beer-loving friend who’s still hauling around a full ice-chest, give them one of these bags. They’ll wonder how they ever lived without it.
Beer Bottle Clip-On Cigar Holder
For many beer drinkers, cigars are a welcome treat. Yet, holding a beer in one hand and a cigar in the other feels like juggling.
If you’re shopping for someone who enjoys a few puffs of a cigar with their nightly brew, this simple gift might change their world.
The simple clip-on tray can attach to any bottle and is perfect for holding a cigar, even when there’s no ashtray insight. Plus, it’ll fit on a regular can if you use it with a koozie.
Beer Chilling Coasters
These solid and stylish coasters make for one of our favorite gifts.
You store them in the freezer. When you’re ready to use them, pull them out and place them on the table.
A foam-clad bottom protects the table’s surface, while a molded top fits the bottom of cans and bottles, preventing accidental tips or spills.
Maybe best of all, the coasters are made of distinct cuts of granite. That way, drinkers can easily identify which glass belongs to them.
If the beer lover in your life shares a fridge or just likes organization, they’ll love the BottleLoft.
These simple magnetic strips hold bottles by the lid, keeping them off the valuable shelf real-estate in the fridge.
Having the bottles hang also makes them easy to grab. Every beer lover will appreciate that!
Custom Beer Labels
If you’re still stuck on what to get, why not have a little fun with it? Buy your favorite beer lover a 6-pack of their favorite brew, then purchase a set of custom labels to go with it.
You can have them say all sorts of things, from sentimental to humorous. You can even purchase a custom 6-pack carrier to go with it!
Does the beer lover in your life like to chill on the river or lake? They might benefit from a set of these libation flotation devices.
These cute koozies look just like life vests, and they act like them too. Not only do they provide insulation to keep your beers cool, but they float upright as well!
Lose your beer over the side of the boat? No problem!
Gifts Beer Lovers Actually Want
There’s no shortage of gifts for beer lovers, but buying a gift they actually want can be a challenge. It’s all too easy to fall into the ultra-cheesy trap with beer lover gifts.
Helmets with two straws and silly t-shirts might bring laughs initially. But, be honest, is the beer lover in your life ever going to wear a shirt that says, “IPA Lot When Drunk”?
It’s usually better to look for a gift that’s both functional and stylish. Avoid gifts solely for laughs, unless that’s your friend’s thing.
In the end, buying a gift for a beer lover is all about knowing the beer lover you’re gifting.
Are they into homebrewing and the science behind it? Are they a connoisseur of a specific craft brew?
Buy a gift based on their interests if you know them, and avoid overly generic options.
