This freezable beer glass ices the outside of your beverage, not the inside. It will cool your drink down to just above freezing and will keep it cool for up to two hours. The cork base acts as a built-in coaster to prevent condensation from escaping, and it also protects your hands from the chill.
Nothing is more disappointing than a warm beer. Rather than sit around and wait for your beer to get cold, just pop one of these beer chillers in the bottle. Dubbed the Corkcicle, this ingenious invention is stored in your freezer and will instantly make your bottled beer ice-cold without the wait and without watering it down.
Much more than your average growler, this ruggedly constructed, stainless-steel vessel is built to last. Featuring a completely airtight cap and double-walled insulation, this growler will keep four pints of beer carbonated and cold for more than 24 hours. You can also buy an optional keg cap to turn this growler into the perfect camping accessory.
In the past five years, YETI has become synonymous with quality. People will even call them by name rather than saying cooler. "Grab me a beer from the YETI" is often heard around many a campfire. Yes, they're pricey, but they're also a lifetime investment. They are built to stand up to anything, even a grizzly bear (they actually tested that). This model can hold up to 28 cans of beer and keeps them ice-cold even in the dead of summer.
Sometimes getting out of the pool to grab a beverage is just too much to ask. This is where The Big Bobber comes into play. This cooler can hold 12 cans and is perfect for long days at the pool or lounging at the beach, and best of all, it floats!
They love a good beer. They love to cook. Now, they can learn how to marry good beer with good food in The Beer Pantry.

A beer-making kit is a perfect gift for a friend if you also like beer. They'll likely share the finished product with you, but you won’t have to do any of the work. This kit includes all the basic equipment, ingredients and instructions for a single batch. The equipment can be reused to brew additional batches; just buy more ingredients.
Beer Drop is a modern spin on the old Beer of the Month Club. Every Beer Drop box is unique and personalized, so your recipient will enjoy every beer they get. Plus, they’ll be able to change their flavors or add beers whenever they want. A Beer Drop membership comes with 10 cans of beer from five microbreweries, personalized recommendations and a monthly newsletter — all at just $4 per beer.
This clever table is designed to hold everything you need for beer-sipping alfresco: Holders for two cans, bottles or glasses, a bowl for snacks and a built-in bottle opener. Plant the fiberglass spike securely in grass or sand, then remove the leg to easily tote and stow.
Did you know beer is good for your hair? Seriously! That’s why we love this craft beer shampoo and conditioner duo from Duffy’s Brew. Duffy's uses real craft beer from a premium small-batch brewer on the West Coast to make their products. Craft beer is naturally rich in amino acids, while the hops, roasted barley and malt provide a restorative coat of Vitamin B, proteins and minerals that protect each strand of hair. As a bonus, the hops and yeast also contain antiseptic properties that help treat scalp irritations and dandruff.
