Looking for the perfect Holiday Gift for that Beer Geek in your life?  Or are you the Beer Geek looking for a little gift to put for yourself under the tree?  Here are some great ideas for the Holidays with links for your convenience.


  • A Growler of Porter Fest from Flat Earth:  There was a point in my life where I only drank to gold stuff.  Then I found a brewery in St. Paul called Flat Earth and all that changed.  Thy are the masters of the Porter making it a blank canvas for over 20 different flavors from hot peppers to S’mores.  Available in Growlers only at the Brewery they release three flavors per week up through the holiday season.
  • Mankato Brewery Sampler Pack:  New on the shelves grab from one of my favorite new breweries of Minnesota.  This pack includes their standards Mankato Original and Stickum Alt as well as their first two Center Street Series, and IPA and Red Ale.
Happy Holiday Ale
  • 2012 Anchor Christmas Ale:  Every year  Anchor brews this ale but the Tree on the label and the recipe change every year.  I have know had this beer in 2010 and 2011 and each year it is further proof that Anchor has discovered how to bottle Christmas!
  • He’Brew Holiday Gift Pack:  I got to give props to this Brewery for this great idea.  You get eight of the He’Brew line of beer, but that’s not all!  Save the bottles as you drink them because this pack also comes with candles to turn your empties into a Menorah!  Also comes with a collector’s glass to boot.
