Whether you’re a girl who likes beer, shopping for a girl who likes beer, or shopping for other fans, we all share one thing – the love for craft beer. Supporting local breweries is always important, which is why we’re heading to our spots in Los Angeles for a few gifts, as well as hitting up some of the cool new gadgets every craft beer lover (and drinker) should have.
It’s not too late to shop for your holiday gifts – check out or gift guide for craft beer lovers below!
for the ladies
A super cool and versatile v-neck from Eagle Rock Brewery
Now that California growler regulations are more relaxed, you can take your very own growler to some breweries (including The Bruery!). There are a lot of options out there, but this 64 ounce growler from Hydro Flask gets some rave reviews for keeping your brew cool.
for the pooch
The latest cold snap in Los Angeles makes our little doggy very happy to have her sweater. Even better, Kansas City’s Boulevard Brewing has the cutest beer-themed dog sweater ever! (Hint: This is on our personal wishlist!)
Our buddy Kristofor Barnes of Bierkast hit the pavement hard this year to write the book: Beer Lover’s Southern California: Best Breweries, Brewpubs & Beer Bars. You can preorder it on Amazon for its Febuary 2014 release!
for the chef
We’ve collected a few recipes on our Pinterest board, but The Craft Beer Cookbook by Jacquelyn Dodd has 100 recipes for cooking with beer. Not to mention – Jackie is a fellow beer blogger who publishes The Beeroness online!
for drinking immediately
Carefully curated beer baskets from the craft beer pros at Sunset Beer Company – better yet it includes those cool new cozies! Pick up in store at 1498 Sunset Blvd in Echo Park.
for immediate and longer-term drinking
Every professional drinker needs a bottle sealer that keeps in the bubbles for longer-term drinking. This piece is a bottle opener and a sealer, doing two very important jobs at just $10. Wouldn’t mind getting one in my stocking (hint, hint).
for your bro
We picked up this Arrogant Bastard Ale Natural Beer Soap as a stocking stuffer for a certain family member (ahem) at Stone Brewing Company’s flagship store in Pasadena. Just a few bucks, plus who doesn’t love black, great smelling soap?
There are a TON of beer of the month clubs out there, and last year we got a great gift of a beer club from a family member via HalfTimeBeverage.com. The selection was pretty decent and you can choose which months to send the 12 pack of beer – we got the Around the World Beer of the Month Club but there are a variety of options available.
