Welcome to our 2023 gift guide! We hope that this list helps reduce some stress when you are shopping for the beer lover in your life. I am, as I am sure most of you are, tired of all of the gift idea articles that are filled with cheesy, gimmicky gifts that are destined to collect dust on a shelf. These gift ideas are unique and useful, most of which we use on a regular basis.

1. Beer Glasses From Pretentious Glass Company
First up is a product that we use almost every day – beer glasses from Pretentious Glass Company. You may recognize them from our recipe pictures and our YouTube videos. Not only do they look and feel great, but each glass is designed to enhance specific styles of beer. In my opinion, these glasses are a much better gift than most of the generic customizable pint glasses you see on most gift lists. You can browse their full inventory at the link below.
2. Beer Mountain AD25
Next up on our list is a new product that we absolutely love – the daypack from Beer Mountain. This backpack has a 24-can-sized waterproof cooler, a water bladder compartment, and countless other storage areas. It is extremely comfortable, which is particularly useful when you are lugging around 24 cans of beer along with your other gear. If your beer lover is also an outdoor lover, I highly recommend checking them out at the link below. You can also see our full review of Beer Mountain’s AD25 here.
3. Puffin Drinkwear
Next up on our beer gift list are the products by Puffin Drinkwear. I have never been a huge believer in koozies, mostly because my beer doesn’t usually last long enough to need one, but these koozies are starting to make me change my mind. Puffin Drinkwear’s products are comfortable, keep your beer cold, and most importantly, look amazing. Their products can be found at the link below. They start at $19.95 and would make an excellent stocking stuffer for any beer lover. Our full review of Puffin Drinkwear can be found here.
4. Make Your Own Beer-Infused Hot Sauce
This beer-infused hot sauce kit is perfect for any beer and hot sauce enthusiast. This kit allows you to customize your own hot sauce with any beer you would like. You can freestyle and mix up any combination of peppers, spices, and beer, or you can use their recipe guides. It is currently available on Amazon for $35.99 at the link below.
5. Beer Drop
Beer Drop is a beer subscription service that I use from time to time. Unlike similar services, they have a large catalog of beers that you can choose from when customizing your monthly order. These beers change every month, allowing you to try something new with each shipment. They have three plans – 3 unique beers (6 beers total) starting at $33, 4 unique beers (8 beers total) starting at $40, and 5 unique beers (10 beers total) starting at $44. It is on the expensive side, so I usually only order a box if I find at least 3 beers that I really want to try. You can find our full review of Beer Drop here, and you can visit their website at the link below.
6. Gift Card To Their Favorite Brewery
As a beer lover myself, I can’t think of a stocking stuffer that I could want more than a gift card to my favorite brewery. You can cover a couple of pints, a growler fill, or even a t-shirt or sweatshirt that they have been eyeing. Don’t underestimate a good gift card!
7. Beer Fridge
If there is beer in every nook and cranny of your fridge, this may be the right gift to get your beer lover. This fridge has a 120-can capacity, allows temperature adjustments between 34 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit, runs quietly, and only uses approximately 288 kilowatt hours per year. It is usually listed on Amazon at the link below for $349.99, but if you order now you can get it for $299.
8. MLB Game Used Baseball Bat Bottle Opener
If your beer lover is also a baseball lover, this is another great stocking stuffer. This bottle opener is made from a bat that was used during a Major League Baseball game. You can specify which team you want the bat to be from, allowing you to get a piece of your beer lover’s favorite team. It is available on Uncommon Goods from $135 – $175 at the link below.
9. Northern Brewer 5-Gallon Starter Homebrew Kit
If your beer lover is looking into starting their homebrewing journey, Northern Brewer makes excellent starter kits. This specific kit is one of their most popular items, coming with everything you need to make a 5-gallon batch of beer. Northern Brewer has excellent customer service that is available 7 days a week to answer any equipment or process questions your beer lover could have. This specific kit is currently listed at $149.99 at the link below. You can find the rest of their homebrewing kits on their website or Amazon store.
10. Crooked Hammock Backyard Beer Club
For those of you who live in Delaware or South Carolina, a membership to the Backyard Beer Club by Crooked Hammock would be a great gift idea. The membership includes a 750 mL hand-bottled and wax-sealed bourbon barrel-aged S’more Cowbell Russian Imperial Stout, a 20 oz member mug, VIP access to ticketed events, a members-only year-end party, and one free four-pack a month each month of 2024. Signup is only through December 31st, and spaces are limited. You can find out more at the link below.

I truly hope this helps, as I am also starting to feel the pressure that comes along with these gift-giving holidays. I wish you all the best of luck. Happy Holidays! Cheers!
