December has finally arrived, which means it’s time to look ahead to Christmas and the holiday season! And if you happen to have a craft beer fan in your life, picking that perfect gift can be an overwhelming task. That’s why we’ve done some of the heavy lifting for you! Here are a few gift ideas that will ensure your craft beer afficionado will have a holiday season to remember:
Tickets to the Newmarket Craft Beer Winter Festival
We’re happy and excited to confirm that the Newmarket Craft Beet Winter Festival is officially ON, and Early Bird tickets are available now until January 1! Your ticket gives you admission to one of five 3-hour sessions taking place over the course of the weekend on March 4-6, 2022, with more than 15 craft breweries, cideries and craft spirits in attendance. Live music, games, activities, food vendors and more – you won’t want to miss this!
Deep 6 – Lake of the Woods Brewing Company
Any craft beer lover would be thrilled to be gifted this beer, though we should mention that it’s actually a pre-order, with pick-up/shipping commencing in June 2022. That being said, this is one of the more unique beers we’ve ever seen – the bottles are aged under ice for 6 months in Lake of the Woods, and this year’s beer is a Belgian Tripel finished with champagne yeast. Very, very cool (literally)!
Glassware of All Shapes and Sizes
Craft beer drinkers love their glassware, and we reckon that many of them have decent-sized collections. Why not help them add to it this holiday season? Here’s a few that we have our eyes on this year:
Monti-Pint Set 2-Pack – Blood Brothers Brewing, Toronto
Mystery Pack Vol. 2 Limited Edition IPA Glass – Nickel Brook Brewing, Burlington & Etobicoke
Boneshaker Gift Set with Ceramic Skull Stein – Amsterdam Brewery, Toronto
Style-Specific Glassware – Old Flame Brewery, Port Perry & Newmarket
Rainy Day Tumbler – Wellington Brewery, Guelph
Official Flying Monkeys Tap Handle
Whether you know a craft beer lover who enjoys drinking their beer from a keg, or you know a collector who loves to display their beer swag in their home, you can’t go wrong with a tap handle, and this one from Flying Monkeys is definitely the coolest we’ve seen!
Community Craft Beer Festival Holiday Box
Last but not least, you’ll be a holiday hero if you surprise the craft beer love in your life with our Holiday Box! This jam-packed box o’ glory comes filled 10 craft beers and spirits – 8 from Ontario and 2 imported – in addition to some cool swag and snacks.
