Beer Gifts

Did you know that Americans drink nearly 7 billion gallons of beer every single year? It's true! And because of this, the beer industry is quite extensive.

This means that if you're an avid beer drinker, you can find all kinds of items related to the hobby that are worth having. But if you're looking to find the perfect gift for a beer enthusiast in your life, and aren't that familiar with the industry, you may be a bit overwhelmed by the seemingly endless amount of options.

What's are some unique gifts to give a beer enthusiast that they probably don't already have? What about actual beer? Is that a good gift?

If you're asking yourself these kinds of questions, wonder no longer, because we're here to help!

In this article, we'll tell you 10 beer gifts that are sure to win you the "best gift" award from your favorite beer connoisseur.

Now then, let's get started!

1. Personalized Pint Glasses

When thinking of beer-themed gifts, the first item that comes to mind is personalized pint glasses. Any lover of beer will tell you that you can never have too many pint glasses around, and the ability to have fun and get creative with the design of the glass is a plus.

So if you're buying for someone who has a favorite sports team, movie, or musical act, you'll be able to find the perfect pint glass for them!

2. USA Beer Cap Map

Many beer drinkers have a similar goal of drinking a beer from all 50 states. Each state has its own breweries that craft their own unique beers, and having at least one beer from each state is a big accomplishment. 

USA beer cap maps are a fun way to track that journey and encourage them to keep it going. They also make for a great conversation piece for any man cave, which is an added bonus. 

3. Beer Chilling Coasters

There are a ton of devices out there designed to help keep your beer cool. Some of them work well, others don't. Beer chilling coasters probably work the best, though. 

Most devices are some sort of cup, like a thermos, which forces you to drink from that glass and only that glass if you want a cold drink. Beer chilling coasters allow for you to drink from whatever you like, which is ideal. 

How do they work? Simply store them in the freezer, and when you're ready to use one, pull it out and set your drink on it, it's as simple as that! It will help keep your drink cold for a longer period, allowing you to sip at your own pace. 

4. Beer Caddy

We've all heard the expression "bring your own beer." When attending an event with a BYOB policy, most people just carry their drinks in whatever box they came in.

The cardboard containers beers generally come in are flimsy as it is, but the mix and match holders available in stores are even worse. Showing up with a great assortment of beers, only for the container to break, causing the bottles to shatter everywhere, is a major party foul.

That's why a beer caddy is such a great gift. The ability to easily (and safely) transport 6 of your favorite beers to wherever you're going is a must for all beer fans.

And best of all? You can have fun with the designs, finding a caddy that perfectly suits the beer enthusiast in your life.

5. Beer Book

There are so many different beers out there. From IPA to porter, each style of beer is different from the next. Luckily, there are also tons of books out there that break down the different types and easily explain what goes into crafting them. 

These books are a must-have for any beer nerd. They'll be able to research different kinds of beers, figure out which beer goes best with each meal, and maybe even discover a beer or two that they didn't know about previously.

6. Wall Bottle Opener

Bottle openers are a beer drinker's best friend. But having to rummage through your kitchen to find one can be a hassle, and really ruin the party. 

That's why having a wall mounted bottle opener, especially in a space like a garage or a man cave, is an absolute must. This will eliminate the need to search for the nearest bottle opener, and prevent your giftee from ever being without one again.

Also, you can have some fun and get pretty personal with these, as there are a ton of different designs to choose from.

7. Beer Making Kit

The only thing better than drinking beer is drinking beer that you've made personally. Now, crafting beer from scratch is a bit difficult, but thankfully there are kits that can be purchased that will help walk you through the process.

And once they get the process down, they'll be able to craft their beer exactly to their liking!

8. Beer Gift Basket

Honestly, one of the best things you can get any beer lover is more beer. But grabbing a 6-pack from your local grocery store isn't exactly going to wow your loved one.

If you're going to go this route, do it in style with a beer gift basket! They come in fun and creative packaging, offer a wide variety of types in each bundle and are sure to impress the person receiving them.

9. Beer Subscription

Nowadays, you can get a subscription for just about anything. So of course, beer subscriptions very much exist, and they're pretty awesome, too.

Most beer subscriptions send a variety of beers to the subscriber's door each month for them to try. With this gift, your beer lover may be more inclined to try something new, and maybe even find a new favorite!

10. Mini Fridge

If you want to get really crazy and don't mind spending a few extra bucks, a mini fridge is an excellent gift idea for any beer aficionado. If they have a man cave, but don't already have a mini fridge, they're probably walking to and from the kitchen every few hours to get more beer.

Making that walk a lot shorter by gifting them a mini fridge to store in their favorite party spot is sure to gain you a massive amount of points with your friend or loved one.

10 Beer Gifts for Avid Beer Drinkers

Well, there you have it! Those are 10 beer gifts that any beer enthusiast is sure to love!

Remember, you can gift someone actual beer using gift baskets or subscriptions, but you can also never have too many glasses or bottle openers, so those are good gifts too.
