Everyone loves a hearty brew. From home pubs to brewery tours, these gifts have something for everyone. By viewing these gifts for beer lovers, you will discover there is a bit of zythophile (someone who loves beer) in all of us.
Unique beer gifts
Imagine playing music from your beer! These unique sets contain a Spotify code for playing music. Take the standard playlist, or choose a song of your own. This is a gift they won’t soon forget.
Are they into Marvel Avengers? They will feel like a superhero with a Thanos glove bottle opener. Do they love science? They will explode with delight when they open a set of molecule pint glasses. These are etched with chemistry modules found in hops. Who knew drinking beer could be so educational?
Coolest beer glasses
Here is a beer glass any guy will love! Grab some of his favourite beer to go with it, and you have the perfect gift.
Do you want a real manly glass that leaves space for the head on top of the beer? A boot pint glass will do just that. Maybe he is a bit of a seafarer with Viking blood running through him. A Viking drinking horn will bring him back to his roots. It comes with a stand so he won’t spill his beer when setting it down. For someone who likes to work out their drinking arm, get a dumbbell beer glass.
Best beer drinker gifts
For someone with a favourite beer, why not get them a kegerator to keep some on tap. This comes with everything they will need to set up their home keg.
Maybe you’re thinking that a full keg is too much. Instead, get a smaller vessel for keeping beer chilled. A 5L Keg Cooler will keep beer cold for up to a month. For a special gift, get them a custom beer tap handle with chalkboard labels to write what the current beer is. They can even print out their own logo to place under the plastic cap.
Favourite beer gifts
Take them on a beer date for two. A selection of brewery tours and tasting are available throughout the UK.
This will probably inspire them to venture out for more tastings. A UK breweries scratch off map allows them to keep track of each brewery they visit. For those who enjoy craft beers, get a London Craft Beer Guide. Whether they live near London or are planning a trip, they will know the best places to see.
Beer gifts for home tastings
Give them a few of these sets, and hopefully you will get invited over for a beer tasting. Each comes with four tasting glasses and mini chalkboard labels to write down which beer they are tasting. Make sure to get them some chalk for the labels.
A Connoisseur tasting set provides the best beer glasses for the individual who is curious about different types of beers. Each kind of beer is best tested using glassware that will bring out its unique flavours. Make sure to get a mixed case for sampling. This one includes IPAs, pale ales, lagers, and stout. For the serious taster, include a tasting journal so they can take notes about the aromas, mouthfeel, etc.
Gifts for creating a pub at home
As a luxury gift for a beer lover, help them create a home pub. Of course, you will need to confer with them on this gift, to make sure they have space and what dimensions are required. You will also need to find out whether they plan on having their home bar indoors or out.
They will also need bar stools. These seats will make them the envy of all their mates. The unique stools look like giant beer caps and will provide an element of whimsy to the pub. Don’t forget they will need something for opening beer. Get them a sturdy wall mounted bottle opener.
Beer related gifts
These cute earrings will be a favourite beer gift for her, whether dangling beer bottles or earrings made from actual beer caps.
Trying to find a beer gift for him? Get some novelty beer themed cufflinks. As a stocking stuffer for either gender, get a bottle opener keychain. Some you can even buy in bulk and have engraved as party favours. For another wearable gift, get a silly t-shirt that says, “it’s beer o’clock”.
Best gifts for beer lovers
This kit comes with all of the equipment and special ingredients the beer lover needs to create their own lager. They just need to have sugar and water on hand. My neighbour got one of these kits years ago and developed a hobby around it. Now he brews all kinds of specialty beers. Of course my husband likes helping by tasting the recipes!
In addition to the kit, they will need a set of bottles with caps to put the brew in when ready.
If they don’t already have them, they will need lager glasses to drink their beer from. This glassware is made specifically for lagers and pilsners. For the brewer that is serious about their hobby, a brewer’s journal is a great place for them to take notes on their recipes and ideas on how to improve them.
Personalised beer gifts
Every home pub needs a sign with the owner’s name. I got one of these for my husband for Christmas. As soon as the presents were opened, he ran out to our garage to hang it. He was as excited as a little kid!
You can also give a gift of personalised coasters, so condensation from beer glasses or bottles doesn’t stain the furniture. For a special occasion, such as a milestone birthday or graduation, give a personalised glass. Or get 2 for a couple for their anniversary.
Gifts for IPA lovers
This is a great gift for those who love the hoppy taste of IPAs. Mixed packs are great for home beer tastings. A mixed case also gives the opportunity of trying beers before buying a whole case.
If they are into home brewing and already have home brewing equipment, get them an IPA Home Brew gift. This pack has all the ingredients they need to create IPAs at home. If they don’t already have them, get a set of IPA glasses to bring out the flavour of these brews.
Beer gifts for the outdoors
This cooler table conveniently holds bottles of brews on the bottom, and it has a place for drinks and snacks on top. I have outdoor furniture made from similar materials and they stand up to the weather well. They are also easy to clean.
For events on the go, such as cricket matches or soccer games, a portable cooler table will come in handy. This table has a section that can be filled with ice to keep bottles cold. At the same time, it has spaces on top to hold open drinks and a bowl for snacks. It easily folds up when it’s time to go. You can also get this handy 12 can cooler bag for keeping beer cans cold during transport.
Classic presents for beer drinkers
Beer steins are traditional beer gifts. Their art work alone makes them stand out in a crowd. When my son was visiting Bavaria, a local informed him that when the lid of the stein hits your forehead, that means you are done drinking!
This stein has a lovely eagle crest, but you can get one with a hunting scene or a Bavarian stein depicting a frau serving the beer. These are so beautiful, they will probably be inspired to start a collection.
More beer gifts
Stouts and porters are richer, more filling beers. My husband likes to say they are breakfast beers. They sometimes come in flavours such as coffee, chocolate, and oatmeal. Try a pack of beers as a gift for someone who likes a hearty brew. You can even buy some individual bottles to make your own mixed gift set.
For the home brewer, get them a pack to make homemade stout. Another unique beer for someone who likes fruitier more acidic beer are the sour beers. For a beer lover who has sampled a wide variety, this will still be something different.
Funny beer gifts
Of course, for the beer lover who has everything, a novelty beer hat will bring on the laughter. It fits two beer cans and has a straw that hangs down to go into the wearer’s mouth.
One of my favourites is a strobe light beer glass. It has four light settings and an off button for when everyone needs a break from the wild effects. Nobody will be drifting off with this light display.
This beer bottle opener cap gun is definitely unique. Pull back the spring, open the bottle, and press the trigger to shoot the cap. Remember, don’t actually shoot it at someone. Even novelty guns can hurt.
Gifts for craft beer lovers
This gift set has everything they need to sample mixed beers at home. It comes with 5 beers, a glass, and a snack to cleanse the pallet in between beers.
If they make a hobby out of trying craft beers, get them a craft beers scratch off poster. It lists 100 craft beers to try, so they will be kept busy for a while. For an unusual craft beer gift, give a mixed craft ales and socks set which comes with a pair of socks and a bottle opener in addition to seven craft beers. Who thinks of these combinations?
Fun beer gifts
For a fun party game, they will love classic American beer pong which comes with reusable cups, balls, deck of cards, and instructions.
For more party fun get a book of beer games filled with dares, challenges, and of course, games. For the partier who likes to take it to the extreme, a beer bong funnel will keep them at the centre of attention. These are great gifts for your mates.
Presents for beer drinkers
This cookbook combines a love of beer with cooking, to create favourites from chicken wings to brunch muffins, making it a great gift for foodies.
An interesting read for beer lovers, this beer and food pairing book explains the science of beer and why certain beers are better with certain foods. For history lovers, The Brewer’s Tale: A History of the World According to Beer is a journey into the history of beer. Beer Bucket List takes the reader on a journey around the world to find the best beers on the planet. For someone who loves to travel, this will provide inspiration for future trips.
Pub games for beer lovers
My husband and I have a dartboard in our garage. We originally had it on our patio, which is why I like a set that comes in a case. A case will help keep the board in good condition when not in use, and it will help protect it from the weather.
A portable curling game comes with everything needed for curling, bowling, and shuffleboard. The great thing about this pub game is that you can set it up anywhere with a flat surface.
For football fans, get a folding football table. When the guests are gone, just fold it up and move it to the side.
Gifts for ale lovers
Not sure what to get an ale lover? A mixed case of Scottish ales or a Mixed case of British ales will make their taste buds happy. Or get a Pork Crackling and Ale Gift Set which combines snacks and beers.
