Forget the kitschy gifts you see everywhere else. These 11 craft beer enthusiast gifts are sure to be a hit with your loved one this Valentine’s Day.
I remember a time when Yuengling was considered somewhat exotic.
It was before the craft brew trend was even a thought, but young adults around the country were already tiring of the same old watered-down flavors.
When I became pregnant with our first child, the husband put aside wine (for my sake), and embraced craft beer wholeheartedly. These days, you’re likely to see our second refrigerator stocked with a wide variety of craft beer, most of which is from local and regional brewers.
Even though I am not much of a beer drinker, I’ve learned to enjoy my husband’s love of craft beer by cooking with many of the beers he brings home. It’s a great way to share the experience.
If you have a loved one who loves craft beer, you might want to check out some of these great ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts. There’s something here for just about anyone and any budget.

Keep track of the states you’ve ‘tasted’ with a Beer Cap Map.
The Husband loves his Growler on Board car carrier. Now he doesn’t have to worry about his growlers tipping over between the brewery and our home. Unfortunately, stock can be spotty, but the growler carrier shown above by PFC looks like a great alternative.

My Husband is full of expensive ideas. He wants a countertop growler cooling and dispensing system (as if we have a place for it). I like the smaller one above, but he’s got his heart set on this 3-growler system.
Now It’s Your Turn
Perhaps Yuengling was our gateway beer to enjoying craft beer and all that goes with it, even though you won’t find it in our fridge anymore. Then again, I’m not sure we’re ready for the expensive brewing and cooling systems that my husband drools over.
