GLBC Holiday Gift Guide

Holiday shopping season is here! Need some ideas for the beer lover in your life? While GLBC brews are always welcome under the tree, we have some suggestions for taking your gift-giving to the next level. 

For the Holiday Hypeman
We all have those family members or friends who get really into the holidays. We’re talking Christmas music on November 1, tree up the day after Thanksgiving, always with a 6-Pack of Christmas Ale (or more!) in the fridge. Make this Holiday Hypeman the center of attention at their next holiday party with a flashy Shinesty® Christmas Ale ugly sweater. You just might get (another) batch of freshly baked gingerbread men in return. 

For the Host of Christmas Present
The ham doesn’t cook itself, does it? Nor does the table set itself, nor (very unfortunately) do the dishes do themselves. There’s always someone who goes all out, all season, to make sure everyone at every holiday gathering is well fed and welcomed into their home (being handed a GLBC beer upon arrival is a nice touch). Give this Host of Christmas Present a hoppy holiday hideaway with a 12-Pack of TropiCoastal Tropical IPA. And few things enhance post-hosting rest and relaxation like a nice warm bath, so adding a bar of Chagrin Valley Soap and Salve’s Crushworthy Lo-Cal Citrus Wheat-infused soap sounds like a calming combination made in paradise. 

For Ho-Ho-Homebody
While parties and dinners are tons of fun, some of us prefer to ring in the holidays with a flannel blanket and a Christmas movie marathon. These cozy-seekers love to just stay in and let it snow, and the perfect pint to make that proposition sound even more appealing is the roasty, smooth Ohio City Oatmeal Stout. For an intergalactic twist on the best of indoor events – game night – snag your homebody buddy a Hazecraft IPA puzzle. And they say it’s a little cold in space (or in the family room), so keep those cozy feels coming with a classic GLBC flannel.

For the Pooch Pamperer
Sometimes that special someone in a person’s life is not a person, but a pupper! While we don’t have a beer for dogs (pro-tip: they do enjoy unfermented wort), we do have a gift suggestion their owners will think is best in show: our award winning Dortmunder Gold Lager! For your Pooch Pamperer’s best friend, might we suggest a matching Dortmunder Gold can dog toy? And make those pet photos with Santa even more adorable by throwing a GLBC bandana around their fuzzy buddy’s neck. 

For the Solstice Celebrator
So what about the non-traditional folks in your life? You know, the ones who actually get excited for the longest night of the year and prefer creepy Krampus to good ol’ St. Nick. Thankfully, we have gifts galore for these holiday trailblazers too. We suggest gifting a GLBC apron to wear while smoking or deep frying the bird or vegan roast for Thanksgiving, or a Hydroflask Growler for that midnight hike in the woods or cross-country skiing pit stop in the middle of nowhere. Want the perfect beer to fill it with? Your holly jolly headbanger will love the sticky, resinous flavors of Dank Demon Imperial Dank IPA.
