Christmas and holiday 2021 luxury gift shop guide with the best gifts for beer lovers this season

It can be a challenge, but we found that it is always easier to find a gift for someone when they have a niche and obvious interest for you to exploit – or, you know, explore. Of course, it can still be a struggle to get them the exact right thing – something that they would not have already found for themselves.

That’s why we are here to help. If you know anyone who is a big fan of beer – closer to an aficionado than a casual drinker – then we have some present ideas for you. Here are eleven gifts for beer lovers, from year-long experiences to little stocking stuffers.

Holiday Gift Shop: Best Luxury Gifts for Beer Lovers 2021

1. Tour of Brooklyn Brewery

If you are giving to someone who prefers experiences to things, this could be perfect – especially if you happen to live in NYC. Your resident beer-lover will absolutely love this intimate, behind-the-scenes tour. They’ll gift a firsthand look at the beer-making process, as well as a taste of some of the brewery’s newest and most experimental beers. And it’s even better, because it’s something the two of you can do together.

2. “The Mamba” Bottle Opener

Voted the best bottle opener of 2021 by Wine Mag, the Mamba tool is the latest addition to the Snake Bite collection of  bottle openers. Though you might not expect much from a small piece of metal, this little guy can do four totally different things: open can tabs; vent cans (in other words, make a little hole to allow air in, and therefore create a smoother drink); open bottles; and remove pour spots. Yes, these are functionalities that only a pro – or beer lovers – might care about. And yes, the beer lover in your life absolutely wants one. To make it extra special, you can also buy a leather sheath ($65) or have it monogramed ($46).

3. Keg from GrowlerWerks

Okay, now we’re getting serious. This personal keg will store and keep carbonated beverages fresh for up to three weeks – almost like having a professional bar inside of your house. If you’re a real fanatic, these seem like a must, and it doesn’t hurt that they’re so cute. Available in multiple colors.

4. IPA Craft Beer Kit

We live in the time of the DIY, which means that if you have a beer lover in your life, chances are they’re looking for an opportunity to try making some themselves. Well, with this kit from Williams-Sonoma, they’ll have everything they need to give it a go – which is pretty cool if you think about it. The kit comes with instructions and ingredients, including the malt, grain, hops and yeast.

5. Drink Chiller from S’well

Everyone’s favorite water bottle-makers are back with a new product: a way to keep your beer cold, all the way from start to finish. And since we can’t overstate the importance of temperature to the whole beer drinking experience, this really is something revolutionary. These chillers come in many colors and variations, but we are partial to the Geode Rose, which is made of rose quartz (the gem that is, of course, said to inspire unconditional love – a nice touch). This could make the perfect gift for someone this season.

BUY NOW – $25.00.

6. Waterford Crystal Beer Mugs

Hey, you can’t go wrong with a beer mug, right? These are of course made out of crystal, and add a little bit of elegance to the whole beer-drinking experience.  And your beer-drinker will be grateful – the handle is a crucial part of the design, because it will stop the warmth of their hand from corrupting the drink. The more you know!

BUY NOW – $105.00.

7. Can-Chilling Coaster Set

And while we’re on the subject of temperature, have you heard about these can-chilling coasters? Made from reclaimed granite – which has thermodynamic properties that work to keep items cold – these coasters are made with a 1 1/4th inch indentation – the exact right depth for the bottom of you beer can. Now you can sit and talk over beers as long as you want – they won’t get warm. And every coaster in the set is a little different looking, so you can tell them apart.

BUY NOW – $48.00.

8. Beer Yoga

A little something light-hearted. This new game is going to be your favorite to play with friends, and it is so much better than beer pong. The instructions are simple: draw a card, and then see if you can complete the pose with a beer in hand – easy, right? Collect chips when you succeed, and the winner is the person who has the most at the end. But a warning – it may get harder to play as you go along.

BUY NOW – $19.95.

9. Beer Foaming Stones

If you’re a casual beer drinker, then you may not have used – or even heard of – these stones before. But for those who are in the know, they are a revelation, and a great alternative to an at-home keg (see #3). The problem with drinking out of a bottle or can, of course, is that you miss out on the rich, bubbly froth that you get with a beer on tap. Well, these little stones are here to solve the problem, and turn your at-home drinking into an experience that’s as satisfying as the one at the bar.

BUY NOW – $28.00.

10. Subscription to Craft Beer Kings

This is the gift that keeps on giving. Choose between Craft Beer Kings’ many subscription boxes – Sours, Stouts, IPAs, and many that mix and match in different combinations – and your loved one (or you!) will get high-quality beer every month, all year long. Part of the pleasure of beer-drinking is getting to experience a wide variety of exciting and experimental new brews, and this subscription will help you do just that.

BUY NOW – $69.00.

11. Bonus: Beer Ornament

It is the holidays, after all! Perhaps the one you love wants to show their love for beer right on their tree – or perhaps you do. And now we kind of wish all six-packs were covered in glitter. Happy holidays!

BUY NOW – $42.00.
