Happy holidays, Gift Ideas

With the holidays upon us(along with the snow), I know everyone is looking for unique gift ideas for their family and friends.

Gift packages:

There are some great variety 12 packs featuring a selection of 3-4 different beers from different brewers.  A perfect gift for all occasions.  Blue Moon, Leinenkugel, Sam Adams, Point Brewery, Tyranena and Capital to name a few.

Put together your own beer gift pack by combining beer and glassware for a "bar" gift. 

Cooking with Beer:

There are a number of great cooking with beer books that have become availible.  Lucy Sanders has a couple that are great stocking stuffers for the beer fan/cook on your gift list.

Seasonal beers:

This time of year is great for a number of Holiday beers.  Here are a couple to sample for yourself or to give as gifts.  Leinenkugel Fireside Nut Brown Lager, Blue Moon Full Moon Winter Ale, Sierra Celebration Ale, Capital Winter Skal, and Lakefront Holiday Spice are a few of the favorites at the stores and bars and restaurants this month.

Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to all.

Please let me know of other  beer related gifts you plan on giving or have received recently.  I will compile a list of the unique items in a later blog.
