This year’s gift guide features some small Instagram-based businesses. First, of course, you should shop the Beer Selfie Store, but then check out these great craft beer products! I have personal experience with a few of these accounts and their products; the rest were recommendations from the @beerselfie Instagram community. Thank you to everyone who provided suggestions! I encourage you to support some small businesses this holiday season.

“Cute Shit for people who love beer.” When I posted to Instagram asking for suggestions for this gift guide a bunch of people recommended @thehoppiestshop. Their shop at thehoppiestshop.com features shirts, swimsuits, stickers, coloring books, hats, and keychains. And yes, it’s all Cute AF.

I haven’t actually tried out Spunk N Disorderly Beer Soaps but they were highly recommended and they sure look fun. Each soap is made with craft beer and looks like the can the beer came from. Go read the descriptions for these soaps, they’re great! Here’s the description for Rainbow Pop Pale Ale, made with Guardian Brewing’s Rainbow Pop New England Pale Ale:
Let’s be honest: there is something almost magical about a cold popsicle on a scorching day. Add some beer and you’ve got perfection. As much as we love traditional flavors like cherry, there was no way we could not try a beer named after a popsicle and described as “like a rainbow in the dark”. The rainbow was so delicious we wanted to bathe in it…so we made it happen! Made with Rainbow Pop beer from Guardian Brewing Company, this craft beer soap smells like an effervescent combination of white peach, orange, and champagne.
