2014 Holiday Gift Guide: Beer

12 days of gift giving ideas.
By |


Day10We’re turning the spotlight on food-centric gifts over the next 12 days leading up to Christmas. Fruit, coffee, cheese, kitchen gadgets, various cuts of meat, jellies, cakes, even specialty olive oils will be part of the mix. Whether you’re looking to enhance your holiday spread, or surprise your favorite uncle (who also happens to be a fantastic cook), we’ve got something to whet your appetite.

Liven up your holiday soiree with a growler (or three) of local craft beer. Hit up a growler-filling station at any of the following spots, taste a few straight-from-the-keg brews, then choose your favorites to complement your family’s favorite holiday casserole. Besides, it’s a great chance to try some fresh, limited releases from craft brewers who don’t bottle or can their seasonal selections.
