Stocking Stuffers for Beer Nerds
Looking for a few last minute stocking stuffers for the beer nerd in your life? Don’t worry – BDR has you covered with a list of great ideas all under $20!
A Portable Beer Reference
The Pocket Beer Guide: The Essential Handbook to the Very Best Beers in the World is a great book to give to the new craft beer fan, or the beer nerd who is looking to travel. It’s not only a list of must-drink brews. It features beer pairing suggestions, a history of beer styles and a well-written, informative introduction as well. $14.95
Craft Beer T-shirts
The Field Notes brand stands on the shoulders of the venerable, all-weather, all-purpose workman’s notebooks of the past. Their “ale” and “lager” themed packs add some personality for the beer lover in your life to take notes on brews tasted, keep a beer “wants” list or sketch bottle labels while bellied up to the bar. They fit perfectly in a pocket and will stand up to heavy use. Field Notes Colors: “Drink Local” Edition is $9.95 for a 3-pack.
One Tough Bottle Opener
We are big fans of our friends at The Bottle Wrench, the manliest beer opener you’ll ever own! Both full and keychain size options are available. $6 – $10
Beer Cap Jewelry
Don’t forget the beer goddess in your life. There are plenty of cool recycled jewelry from beer paraphernalia options out there, but some of our favorites are the bottle cap earrings created by loveleeladies. Three Floyds, Left Hand and Stone are among great breweries that are featured. $5.50
What beer fanatic doesn’t want to smell like their favorite beer? Lots of options out there, but I am a big fan of Cigar City’s line-up of soap. Single bars are $5 each, with a 2 bar combo available for $8 as well.
Beer Valve Caps?
Personalize your ride with these bottle cap bicycle tire caps, a must have for your beer/bicycle enthusiast! Only $10 for a set of two.
