Have you been wondering what to get that beer lover in your life? Maybe you’re someone who is tired of getting gifts you don’t want, and need a way to start dropping hints to avoid getting yet another sweater for your cat that died three years ago (feel free to insert a different bad gift example here if that one isn’t to your liking…) Well look no further because the team at ABF has made your life – and Christmas shopping – that much easier with their list of 11 amazing beer themed gifts.
11. Craft Beer Kit– Are you a confident person who believes they can do anything if they put their mind to it? Have you been thinking to yourself, “What do those brewers have that I don’t?” Well beyond the years of training, access to top end equipment and the mandatory brewer’s beard, it’s nothing a home brew kit can’t fix! And who knows, once you master the whole brewing thing, maybe you can try your hand at dentistry, engineering or brain surgery (yeah, we get the irony of that last example…) Learn More
10. Beer Flight Glasses and Paddle – Are you someone who wishes they could sample a variety of beers but ends up mixing them all together because you only have one glass? Well swamp-water your beer no longer! Get this beer flight with 4 different styles of glasses and a beer paddle – it’s like getting two gifts in one! Learn More
9. Beer Lover Playing Cards – What do you get for that beer lover who also enjoys playing cards? Probably the first thing you want to do is get them a beer, because you can’t drink playing cards, but definitely get them the cards after that because you just said you know they like playing cards – and they know you know they like playing cards – so it would be kind of awkward if you didn’t get them the cards.

8. Custom Engraved Beer Glasses – Are you tired of using masking tape to write on your beer glasses, only to have it come off again and again each time you wash your glass? You do wash your beer glasses… right? Now you can engrave a beer glass with a personalized message. Let your imagination run wild! Put your name on there – or better yet – give your beer a name – then you could say things like, “I’m going to go drink a Dave!”. Learn More
7. Growler with Tap – Is the person you’re shopping for one of those people who keeps saying things like, “I’d love to drink some beer from this growler, if only I didn’t have to go to all the trouble of taking the cap off first,” If you answered yes to that question then do we have the gift for you! Now you too can save valuable seconds in the race to get that first sip, plus get a pretty average wrist workout with this growler with beer tap. Learn More
6. A Crow Drinking Beer T-Shirt! Great Right? The Robbie Vergaras Printing & Design Co. has created a cool play on words beer themed t-shirt Mi-Crow Brew. And who knows, this might be your first step in training a crow to bring you a beer…. (disclaimer – trying to train a crow to bring you a beer might be a really bad idea…). Learn More
5. Beer and Socks? Yes please! The Friday Sock Co. has a few variations of beer themed socks. Check out their barley and beer socks or you might be just as happy to wear their hops and beer combo. Better yet, get both and explore even more awesome combinations! Learn More
4. Wait…What’s Better? Beer and socks OR Beer and COOKIES?!(disclaimer, I’m hungry as I write this and I can’t eat socks – sorry socks). The team at coRise has created a delicious variety for you to try (your tongue will thank me – and you should too if you have any manners…). Learn More
3. Shower Beer Holder – You’ll need somewhere to put your beer while you eat your cookies or put on your new beer socks! I don’t know how many times I’ve thought, “I wish there was a place I could put my beer while I’m here, showering to make myself smell nice and clean.” Is it a problem that I don’t remember how many times I’ve asked that question? Maybe. Is it a problem that I don’t have anywhere to put my beer while in the shower – not anymore! Learn More
2. Beerfest In A Box Subscription – Eight incredible beers shipped to your door four times a year. Each box contains a video from the brewers that lets you hear all about their beer. Is it cheating to choose a gift that is actually four gifts? Maybe. Go ahead and call the “Gift Idea Police,” I dare you. For those of you more interested in great gifts than rules! Learn More
1. The Gift of Something to Look Forward To! – Tired of watching your uncle Larry get more socks even though he lost his legs in that combine accident? We hear you! Instead, why doesn’t someone get Uncle Larry a gift he can look forward to? With five of the biggest and best beer festivals in the world – ABF has something for everyone. Want to sample from hundreds of craft beers, spirits, ciders, RTDs and meads? Get tickets to the Edmonton or Calgary Beer Festivals. Want to find your mountain adventure?
