Beer Selfie Holiday Gift Guide

Sempli

Glassware doesn’t get more gorgeous than this. These unique glasses were each designed to emphasize different beer styles:

The set started with our first straight sided beer glass, the Monti-Birra, which was designed to perfectly hold your 12 oz beer. The conical inverted bottom catches the initial splash of beer and gently leads the head of foam up to the surface. By encouraging the effervescence, the flavors of each individual beer are enhanced. The next glass has a similar design, but slightly bigger; the Monti-Pint, holds a true pint, perfectly measured for larger pours. For Pilsners, we created the Monti-Pils, a glass with a slender tall body that enhances the carbonation in these beers and helps maintain a longer effervescence. For the last glass, we studied and developed the shape of the glass to promote the aeration of hoppy IPA brews. As a result, we created the Monti-IPA, a “zig-zag” shaped glass; when liquid is poured, it is taken on a mini roller coaster ride down the angled ridges.

Every glass is hand-blown from lead-free crystal, which highlights the unique color of each individual beer.

Sempli has the beer glassware set above, or individual glasses. They also make some beautiful wine glasses and accessories, and their lovely Ventri beer bottle opener.

AleHorn

We dare you to come up with a more epic way to drink your beer than AleHorn. No, not coming up with anything? We didn’t think so.

Mankind could make alcohol long before we could make glass, so naturally we used what we could come by as vessels for our ancient fermented drinks like mead, ale, and wine. Not being ones to waste any part of an animal we had worked so hard to hunt or rear, we eventually figured out how to use tools to hollow out the horns of bovines to use as drinking horns, and the rest is history…

Ale Horn has classic viking horns and tankards in multiple sizes. All AleHorns are 100% real, ethically sourced bovine horn and will make you feel like a 100% real viking. They can also engrave almost anything on your horn. Their horns are guaranteed, so if anything happens or you’re not pleased with your horn they’ll replace it.

Rain Taps

Sommerville, Massachusetts artist Ben Lewis transforms beer tap handles into Rain Taps umbrellas by hand. These high quality, classic stick umbrellas are perfect for a walk to the pub on a rainy day.

He also repurposes tap handles into other functional items like bottle openers, pizza cutters and even ice cream scoops. They make great personalized gifts because they can be made out of a tap from the beer lover’s favorite brewery.  He has handles from a range of breweries, large and small.

I Prefer Craft Beer

Gose: Brewing a Classic German Beer for the Modern Era

First the Anderson Valley Brewing brewmaster nailed down this centuries old beer style, helping bring it into fashion in American craft beer, then he wrote the book about it. If you’ve tasted his beers you know: Fal Allen knows his Gose.

Explore the sensation of tart, fruity and refreshing Gose-style beers, popular in Germany centuries ago and experiencing a renaissance today. Follow the development of this lightly sour wheat beer as it grew, then bordered on extinction, before surging into popularity due to the enthusiasm and experimentation of American craft brewers. Gose explores the history of this lightly sour wheat beer style, its traditional ingredients and special brewing techniques. Discover brewing methods from the Middle Ages and learn how to translate them to modern day beer. Learn about salinity, spices, and lactic acid as you experiment with Gose recipes from some of the best-known craft brewers of our time. This refreshing journey captures the innovation and experimentation that is occurring within the style and help you brew your own Gose-style beers.

Stainless Steel Beer Bottle Koozie

Click on the bio link for the BeerSelfie.com @smartideas4life Stainless Steel Beer Bottle Koozie review!

A post shared by Beer Selfie (@beerselfie) on

I recently got this Stainless Steel Beer Bottle Koozie from Smart Ideas for Life. I’ve used it once, on the beach, and it worked great. I wanted to really test it out by bringing it on a hike. I wondered how it hold up bouncing along on rough trails. I was honestly a bit skeptical of the “beer savers” silicone cap preventing leaks.

I loaded the koozie up and off I went down the trail.

After hiking for a bit I used the bottle opener attached to the koozie’s cap to open my beer. There was a resounding hiss from the bottle when opened, but no spillage.

After a few sips, on goes the silicone cap, and back to the trail I went.

After some more hiking, including a bit of a stumble that I was sure would knock the koozie’s silicone cap lose, I checked on the state of my beer. The cap was firmly in place, and no beer had leaked!

I finished my hike, and my beer, without spilling a drop before heading home. The beer bottle koozie turned out to be perfect for a hike!
