Fancier than a 6-pack, but cheaper than a fermentation tank—discover our 5 favorite gift ideas for the beer nerd in your life.

Home brewing is a hobby that requires patience, creativity, and a proclivity for good beer. But when it comes to shopping for the beer lovers in your life, it’s tough to find something fancier than a 6-pack, but cheaper than a fermentation tank—until now.

Discover our 5 favorite gift ideas for the home brewer or beer lover in your life.

1. The Gift of Beer Knowledge

No, this won’t mean an apprenticeship with Weihenstephaner (or any other trips to Bavaria).

We’re talking about the gift of knowledge in the form of beer-making books. Gift a book that provides in-depth information on various brewing techniques, recipes, and tips from experts in the field. Books like “The New World Guide to Beer” by Michael Jackson (not that Michael Jackson) or "Brewing Classic Styles" by Jamil Zainasheff and John Palmer are great options. You can make a reader out of anyone who has a hobby they’re passionate about, or at least offer a classy coffee table accessory.

2. Custom Wooden Bottle Opener

A custom wooden bottle opener is a unique and thoughtful gift. It's not just a tool, it's a piece of art that can be displayed on the wall or countertop. You can have it engraved with a personal message or the receiver’s name to make it even more special. Our bottle openers start at just $30, functioning as a great gift or stocking stuffer for beer lovers.

A custom bottle opener is something they’ll hang onto forever. People cherish gifts that are unique and personal to them. And if they’re as much of a beer lover as you think they are, it’ll build up some mileage quickly.

3. Beer Tasting Glasses

Home brewers love to share their creations with friends and family. A set of beer tasting glasses can be a great gift for these occasions. These glasses are designed to enhance the flavor and aroma of the beer. They come in various styles, including Belgian glasses, pint glasses, and IPA glasses.

Pro tip: find out what type of beer they’re making lately and choose glassware that’s made for that variety.

4. Beer Brewing Software

Home brewing is a science. While most people could probably fudge their way through making beer, making good beer is another thing. Gift your home brewer with software that helps them keep track of their brewing process, recipes, and even share their creations with other home brewers online. Brewer's Friend and BeerSmith are two popular options.

5. Brewery Gift Cards

Most home brewers or beer lovers are never going to turn down an opportunity to visit a new brewery. With over 9,000 breweries in the U.S., there’s a good chance they haven’t visited at least one near you. It grants them the freedom to explore a variety of artisanal brews crafted with care and creativity right in their own neighborhood. Gifting a trip to a local brewery offers you the opportunity to support local businesses and create an experience the receiver will love.
