This gift list has basically everything except actual beer.

best gifts for beer lovers
Gear Patrol

We all have that one friend who's obsessed with beer. The person who's so obsessed that they skipped the crappy college beers and went straight into craft beers: double IPAS, fruited sours, pastry stouts — you get the idea. Beer lovers are some picky folks, so getting them a six-pack (or a four-pack as is the usual for craft beer) might seem a bit too daunting. Instead, get them something beer-adjacent. Whether it's a way to make their own beer that doesn't involve commandeering the bathtub to a device that actually lets them drink beer in the bathtub, these beer gifts will have your beer lover hopping for joy.

Huckberry x Coors Banquet Corduroy Hat

Huckberry

When it comes to low-brow beer, it's tough to beat Coors Banquet (and if it's in a stubby bottle, well game over). Huckberry's recent collabs with the Banquet has offered some unique pieces that have sold out quick. Somehow this corduroy hat is still in stock.

OK, so we can all agree that the crowler killed the growler, right? With that said, in our outdoor-meet-up-Covid-times, a carbonated growler actually makes a lot of sense for filling up at a local craft brewery before that picnic in the park or the backyard hangout. 

Yeti Hopper Flip 8 Soft Cooler
