Beyond beer for beer lovers
The beer lovers in your life don’t only love to drink beer, you know. They also enjoy reading about beer, thinking about beer and wearing sweatshirts that enable them to drink beer more effectively. With that in mind, here are some options to dazzle the beer drinkers in your life this holiday season.
For the home brewer who doesn’t quite want the hassle of brewing, there’s Pico, a countertop “home brewing appliance” offering more than 100 recipes — or the ability to create your own — with minimal fuss and cleanup compared with actual brewing. $399 or $599, picobrew.com
Plenty of craft beers are too boozy or flavorful for just one person to handle. The ideal solution: half-pint (8-ounce) tumbler glasses from Crate & Barrel. Perfect for sharing that 16-ounce can of triple IPA or imperial coffee stout. Available as a single for $2.95 or a set of eight for $20.95, crateandbarrel.com
