GIFTS NOT SUITABLE FOR BEER GEEKS
A Holiday List to Share with Friends & Family
Beware of well-meaning friends and relatives bearing beer gifts. We all have them: clueless but well-meaning folks who see anything that remotely has to do with beer and think it is the perfect gift for us (the family beer geeks). While we really appreciate their thoughtfulness, they could use a little bit of guidance. Sure, you can try to hint about what you’d really like, (i.e. the stuff in our post: 8 Great Gifts for Beer Lovers) but some folks just can’t resist the plethora of “novelty beer gifts” out there. So, to help you avoid receiving the beer equivalent of a reindeer sweater from Aunt Tilly, we’ve compiled this list of NOT SUITABLE FOR BEER GEEKS GIFTS. Please share and post where necessary and as often as necessary for the sake of all beer geeks out there.

Disclaimer: Since we do not claim to be the representatives of taste for all beer geeks, but rather just our own bizarre whimsies, please adjust this list as you see fit. Feel free to add and or delete before sharing it with your loved ones… or if you see something that really tickles your fancy, go for it! We’ve linked each gift here via the photos to their respective websites in case you see something you just can’t live without. We say: to each- their own.
Happy Hoppy Holidays to All!
