WFYB Gift Guide: 16 Gifts For The Beer Lover In Your Life
Dec 03, 2017
It's that time again! We're all making lists and checking them twice to get all of our loved ones something they'll love this holiday season.
Is there someone (or multiple someones) on your list who eats, drinks, and sleeps beer? Maybe someone who aspires to home brew in their basement and frequents local breweries to stay on top of all the latest beer releases? We understand how hard it can be to find them the perfect beer-related gift, so we took matters into our own hands.
We put together the second of three Work For Your Beer holiday gift guides (with the help from our awesome partners!) to make your seasonal shopping experience as easy as possible. Psssstttt: If you missed our first guide for fitness freaks, you can check it out here.
Check out this week's guide to find gifts that will give the beer lover in your life all the heart eyes and "cheers"-ing emoji feels.
Help the beer lover in your life show support for an awesome local brewery. This Unknown Brewing t-shirt can be found online or in their taproom for only $20, making it fashionable and affordable for every budget.
The Usual knows that beer yogis are going to go ga-ga over this adorable muscle tank. Watch your friends flaunt their guns (thank you, chaturangas) while sipping on a beer after class in this comfy top.
For the beer lover with a sense of humor that appreciates well-named brews, get them this 'Babymaker' t-shirt from Triple C Brewing. Available online and in their taproom, this soft tee is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
The brew-lovin' gal in your life will be obsessed with this Salud Cerveceria cropped top, the cutest and most fashionable way to show her love of craft beer. Visit them in NoDa to grab this tank and a cold beer.
Help someone you love show their love for #CLTbeer with our very own Work For You Beer 'I [Beer] CLT' tank. The perfect addition to any closet, this tank will surely be their new favorite. Shopping for a guy? Don't worry, we've got t-shirts in the same design.
For any beer lover looking for a little adventure, this NC Beer Map from EDIA Maps is the perfect gift choice. This map features more than 180 craft breweries in North Carolina, so they're almost guaranteed to find something they haven't tried before.
They're buying bottles from their favorite breweries, but do they have the perfect functional-yet-attractive accessory to open those bottles? They will once you gift them this Craft Carolina keychain bottle opener! They'll think of you every time they crack open a cold one.
Help them show off their love for two great things: beer and North Carolina. Whether the beer lover in your life is from Charlotte or from another beer-loving city in North Carolina, they'll love having this NC Beer Pride hat to wear so they can show their #NCbeer pride.
If you can't make a decision between all of these awesome beer-related items, why not get a Legion gift card instead? That way, they can spend it how they please (whether that's on growlers, t-shirts, food, or beer itself).
Give the beer lover in your life an event to look forward to with tickets to the 2018 Queen City Brewers Festival (QCBF) on Saturday February 3. The festival features over 30 breweries and celebrates Charlotte's thriving craft beverage community while benefiting the amazing organization, ACEing Autism. Get a ticket for yourself, too, and join in the fun!
What's the perfect way to enjoy a beautiful day in the Queen City? Taking a Brews Cruise, of course! Charlotte Brews Cruise takes passengers on a tour of Charlotte's breweries while enjoying beer tastings and gaining knowledge about craft brews. The cruises are also great for birthday parties and bachelor or bachelorette parties.
Help the beer lover in your life get started on a homebrewing journey with this Man Crates Micro Brewed kit. They'll be able to make their own beer and drink it too. You'll be gifting them the best of both worlds!
Growlers & Glassware
Introduce your friend to their new favorite growler. This 64 oz. ceramic growler from Queen City Growlers is handmade in Charlotte and keeps beer colder than a standard growler. Fill it with a local brew to make their gift complete.
This 32 oz. insulated stainless steel growler from Legion Brewing keeps beer cold for 24 hours, making it a great gift to give to a beer lover who also enjoys traveling. Also available in 64 oz., this growler is sold exclusively in Legion's taproom.
Enjoy your favorite beverage in the comfort of your own home in glasses from Pop the Top. These $5 glasses, sold in the bottle shop, make great gifts for co-workers (or stocking stuffers for all the beer lovers in your life).
Looking to give someone a fun, colorful glass they can pour their favorite beer into? Give them this fella from Salud Cerveceria, then stop at Salud Beer Shop downstairs to grab a four-pack or six-pack of beer to go with it.
