Hopsteiner, one of the largest hop growing, trading, breeding and processing firms in the world, has put together a holiday gift list to help you shop for the beer lover in your life. Skip the six-pack and get creative this year.
Fizzics Draft Beer System
This portable technology allows beer connoisseurs to enjoy the luxury of draft quality beer anywhere. The fluid and gas technology will pour a perfect tap-quality beer, transforming the flavor, taste and even creating micro-foam. This easy-to-use and portable system will make it difficult to ever drink beer out of a can or bottle again. But then again, with this system, there may be no need to.
Beer Aroma Booster
Through ultrasonic vibrations and two teaspoons of water, this innovative design (which looks like a coaster) revives the beer’s head throughout the entire pint, so that it tastes the way it should throughout the entire drinking experience.
Game-Used Hockey Puck Bottle Opener
A unique gift for anyone who loves hockey and beer. Pucks that have retired from their NHL days are redesigned as bottle openers. Each bottle opener puck is one of a kind (with original scratches.) All pucks are officially licensed by the NHL and marked with the date and teams’ names. Additionally, a unique hologram number can be used to verify game details online. Prices vary, depending on the team.
Craft IPA Beer Shampoo & Conditioner
So, it turns out that beer is great for hair. These shampoos and conditioners are a great stocking stuffer that are rich in amino acids, hops, roasted barley and malt with added botanical extracts to provide a great scent.
Six Piece Craft Brews Glassware Set
This set includes six glasses that are specific to each type of beer: classic pilsner, English pub, Belgian ale, craft pub glass, porter/stout and wheat beer. This is a great gift for a beer lover who recently moved into a new place, or someone who is just getting into beer. Be very generous and give two sets to really get their glass collection going.
Candles may seem like a generic gift, but a candle that emits the aroma of a favorite beer is truly unique. There are plenty of scents to choose from, including Apricot Wheat, Breakfast Stout, Hard Cider, Hoppy IPA, Tropical Lager, and Vanilla Porter. Additionally, this is a gift that is environmentally-friendly, as the candles are packaged in 22-ounce recycled beer bottles that are cut, cleaned and re-annealed by a small business in the USA.
Beer Barrel Aged Coffee Beans
Have someone in your life who is a coffee addict by day, beer drinker by night? These coffee beans have light and smooth beer notes with hints of hops and were aged in barrels from Founder’s Brewing Co.
Hops Flower Essential Oil
The healing properties of hops are surprising and plentiful. Hops essential oil can be used to reduce pain, treat insomnia, improve sexual performance, reduce menstrual cramps, reduce respiratory issues, eliminate headaches and to treat hair and skin. Pair this oil with an essential oil diffuser, and you have a great way to combine the gifts of wellness and hops.
Beer Cap Map
The perfect gift for the friend who loves to travel (and loves to drink beer on their travels). Insert beer caps into this decorative map to show off (and remember) beers tasted from around the country.
Stainless Steel Bottle Cooler
This bottle does it all; conceals a beer bottle, protects it and keeps the beer refreshingly cold. This is an absolute necessity for beach beer drinking, drinking in the pool or avoiding overpriced beers at sporting events.
Jelly Belly Draft Beer Jelly Beans
Here is a stocking stuffer for anyone who loves beer. The jelly beans even come in a beer bottle shaped container. Are they delicious? Who knows. If nothing else, it will be fun to sit around the Christmas dinner table, getting Grandma to sample these unconventionally flavored jelly beans.
