Holiday Gifts for the NH Beer Lover

Looking for the perfect gift for a Granite State beer lover? Here are nine* suggestions for excellent beer-related gifts with a local connection.

1- Tickets for Granite State Growler Tours will allow your favorite beer lover to check out some local brews with a designated driver and a knowledgeable tour guide.

2- Soap from Beveridge in Wolfeboro. It is made with beer -- how cool is that? You might consider "Liberte" (Earth Eagle Liberte) or "Alpine Garden" (Tuckerman Pale Ale).

3- A Growler Tote from Urban Quilter. These are made (by me) in Manchester, NH from grain bags emptied by local brewers.

4- A Swirly Fish bottle opener from 2ndChanceMetalArt. If this fish isn't your thing, there are some other cool designs as well from this Concord-based Etsy shop.

5- A long-sleeved thermal shirt from Great North Aleworks (it is cold in NH and the shirt has a great graphic on the front). You can also buy UQ Growler Totes here.

6- An Urban Quilter Grain Bag Tote which you can buy at Bert's Better Beers. While you are at Bert's, you can find tons of great local (and not-so-local) beer for gifts or for your own holiday celebrations.

7- For the beer-lover's best friend check out Gunther's Goodies. These dog treats are made here in NH from spent grains. You can get them online, at Bert's, or from many local breweries.

8- A White Birch Growler -- A growler from any local brewery would be a good gift, but I particularily love the graphics on the White Birch growlers. Did you know the white birch is NH's state tree?

9- A Smuttlabs graduated cylinder beer glass. Yes, most beer lovers already have more glasses than anyone could use in a lifetime, but this one is unique (and beer geeks love branded beer glasses anyway).
*Nine is the perfect number for NH lists because we were the 9th state.
