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.

This is the kind of bottle opener you lend that has someone saying, "Wow, nice bottle opener!"
The Teku is beer glass royalty. Its stemmed construction prevents you from warming up your beer, and the thin curved lip makes for a smooth and easy sip.
Indiana's 3 Floyds recently expanded distribution and Zombie Dust is arguably one of the best craft Pale Ales out there. If they love hops (and what self-respecting craft beer lover doesn't melt for a good Pale Ale) you can't go wrong with this beer that's now more accessible.
Ain't nothing worse than warm beer. The Hopsulator is a koozie for standard 12-ounce cans, as well as tall boys. It even does triple duty by acting as a tumbler.
These are the nicest damn coasters you'll ever own. Because they're made of merino wool, they'll soak up drips and dribble without actually ever feeling wet.
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.
Each state has at least one brewery you need to try, and with this bottle cap map, you have more of an excuse to do a cross-country brewery crawl.

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 says this can hold eight beers, and if they're cans probably a few more. No one is ever unhappy about being gifted a Yeti cooler — just sayin'.
