Unless you are more organised than I certainly am, then you’re still looking for Christmas gifts for that special person (or people). But what to get for the beer lover in your life? Or someone who has started to take an interest that you want to encourage? Well, I’ve found a few suggestions…
1 – Beer52 subscription
A Beer52 subscription is the perfect gift for a friend or loved one, keeping their fridge stocked through the year! Or if you don’t want to commit to the subscription, try a mixed case to get some beer juices flowing and make sure there’s something on the table next to the turkey.

2 – The Good Beer Guide
The classic handbook to get exploring the finest pubs that Britain has to offer. This book will get your loved one inspired to try new beers and bars to drink them in.
3 – The Little Book of Craft Beer
A great little guide to some of the headline beers to try in different styles – it might not be revolutionary to someone who knows a lot about beer already, but it’s a perfect companion to have to hand, both in its size and it’s very clear and well-illustrated layout.
4 – A comedy tea towel
A comedy tea towel, obviously.
5 – The Atlas of Beer
The Atlas of Beer – the coffee table book that anyone who likes beer will want. Full of photos to impress and intrigue.
6 – Shower beer can holder
Another jokey one, but with serious implications – why wouldn’t you have a beer in the shower, right? This one is portable, so you can take it with you wherever you go: on holiday, the gym…
7 – Beer gift hamper
A nice, balanced mixture of beers suitable for a beer lover or someone beginning to dip their toe in the water. Comes with a glass and some snacks to set your Christmas morning off in the right way.
8 – Beer koozies
I learnt about koozies on a trip to the US about a year ago, and I’ve never looked back. These things keep your beer cold, and are an amazing conversation starter at any BBQ – perfect for someone who wants to tell everyone about the IPA they’ve brought.
9 – Bermondsey microbrewery tour
A full microbrewery experience in an area thick with microbreweries. One for me to write about another day, but the Brixton Beer Mile includes some excellent breweries all within a short walk of one another – as I wrote about here, an experience in a microbrewery can be a very rewarding experience, getting you up close with beers and their makers. Plus this one’s for two so you can hope to get an invite!
