With Father’s Day a couple of weeks away, I thought it might be a good idea to give the ladies some suggestions of what the craft beer drinking dads might like… or give the dads some good ideas of what they could ask for. All of these gifts are from Etsy.com and while I’m not overly familiar with Etsy, my wife is. She sells a few things on there and brought to my attention a number of awesome beer related stuff that you can get via Etsy. Most of the stuff on Etsy is customizable, so get your orders in soon. Here are a few items that I thought were especially cool:
This is definitely the coolest bottle opener out there. I don’t know about you, but dealing with all these waxed bottles these days can be a huge pain. The YOpener makes it so much easier because it includes a built in wax-cutter.
$22 for the Bourbon Barel Aged Version or $20 for the Original Version (you can also customize for $5)
2. Yeti Colster
It’s never a good thing when you set your beer down for just a few minutes and then come back only to find it’s warmed up too much. The Colster will ensure that your bottle or can will stay cold.
$29.99 (and includes free engraving)
There are a lot of people out there who would like to try at least one beer from each state. This would be a cool way to display some of your favorites.
$35 -70 for the United States Shaped Bottle Cap Map depending on the size and wood you choose. You can also get a North Carolina Shaped Bottle Cap Map for $41!
This is a very specific gift, but if you are one of the many people who ride your bike to different bottle shops/breweries, this would be an easy way to make sure your growler got home safe.
$80 for the Original Version or $35 for the Lite version.
If you are going to a bottle share or party where you want to take a handful of beers, this would be useful for that while also displaying where your sports loyalties lie. Plus, this carrier comes with a bottle opener on the side.
$45 (and is made to order for your favorite sports team)
I came across too many to just display just one.
$20 – $22 (depending on size) – Support North Carolina Breweries with the “Drink Beer From Here” NC Tshirt or “Drink Local” NC Tshirt.
$14.99 – $16.99 (depending on size) – If you are married and a home brewer…I don’t know how you don’t have the “I LOVE it when MY WIFE let’s me home brew” Tshirt.
$27.95 – The “I Run Because I really Like Beer” Tshirt would be a perfect gift for those runners out there.
