Pretty much everyone we know loves beer. From hoppy IPAs to dark lagers to golden pilsners, there are dozens of flavors and varieties for everyone to enjoy!
And buying a gift for a beer lover is a pretty easy thing to do. After all, a set of pint glasses always make a great gift.

In honor of the twenty-first amendment (which repealed prohibition), we’ve included 21 gift ideas on this list to suit every style and every budget.
This is far from your generic set of pint glasses. The Spiegelau Beer Tasting Glass Gift Set features four different shaped glasses, each of which is designed to enhance the flavor and texture of different types of beer.

This wall mount has a rustic look made from Baltic birch plywood. Every time you sample a new beer, just place the bottle cap in an open slot and, over time, you’ll create your own one-of-a-kind wall art.

Most diehard beer fans have their favorite brewery. And there are thousands of them in the U.S. alone. Give your beer lover a chance to rep their favorite brewery with a t-shirt of their favorite brew or the logo of their favorite local taproom.
One of our favorite East Coast breweries is the Cape May Brewing Co in south Jersey. (They make a damn good IPA!) But our personal preference isn’t what matters...
Just Google your beer lover’s favorite brewery, and you’re sure to find an online shop full of tees with brewery logos, beer logos, and fun graphic prints.
