Gifts for Serving Beer

Collage of three gift ideas for beer glasses including specialty IPA glasses and Hydro Flask True Pint Glasses.

  1. Spiegelau IPA Glasses—Not only are these glasses beautiful, but they are also the perfect shape for getting the most flavor out of an IPA. Give these to the hops lover on your list.
  2. Finnish Beer Mugs—We love these short and stout textured beer mugs. They are sturdy and freezer-safe, and can hold a lot of beer!
  3. Hydroflask Pint—Keep your beer cold on even the hottest of days with an insulated pint from Hydroflask. And because these cups are stainless steel, you won’t have to worry about glass breakage when you’re outside.

  1. MLB Game Used Baseball Bat Bottle Opener—This one’s for the beer AND baseball lovers in your life! While it’s a little pricey compared to the other things on our list, your giftee is sure to treasure this bottle opener made with a baseball bat from a real MLB game.
  2. Wooden Six Pack Holder—Skip the cardboard carriers, and instead use this wooden six pack holder to transport your beer. For an even better gift, give it filled with beer!
  3. Freaker Koozies—These will forever and always be one of our favorite beer-related gifts! They fit perfectly around beer bottles, cans, and even giant water bottles!
