Holiday Gifting - Shop Local, Shop American: Beer Lovers

No doubt about it, Cleveland is a beer drinking town. Here's some great gift ideas for the beer lover on your list.

These are so perfect for tailgating or just watching from the comfort of your couch. CLEClothing has a lot more designs to choose from too.

New Albion Brewing is a California company with a local connection. Local blogger Renee of The Brewer's Daughter is bringing back her birth father's recipe for microbrewed beer. If you are lucky, you'll snag some of the beer. Until then, get this hoodie to keep your loved one warm.


How about a brew your own beer kit? You can order this one from Brooklyn Brew Shop or visit Leener's in Northfield.
Toss your everyday bottle opener and get one of these for function and fun!
My favorite is the shark! Plus, take 20% off each order. Use code WDHD20DSC at checkout to apply. $2 ground shipping.

Tired of losing your beer can when you set it down because someone else takes it or it's jumbled up with a bunch of other unknown cans? 


Use this handy device to leave your mark.

There are so many tasty brew options in town, you can easily get a gift certificate for any one of them or even assembly an amazing 6 or 12 pack of craft beers for your beer loving friend.

Great Lakes Brewing Company is one of the best and they have everything imaginable for the beer drinker on your list. One of my favorites is the Beer School on Wednesdays. You get an informative and fun tour of the brewery plus tasty samples, snacks and a swag bag.

As a weekend alternative, you can take your loved one on a Brewery Tour and then grab a bite in the brew pub. The Local and Fresh plate is a must - it's the perfect assortment of meats, cheeses and veggies, many from across the street at the West Side Market. Pair it with Brewer's Barley Pretzels for a well rounded nosh. If you're strictly into meat, get the Sausage Sampler - it's delicious too. They offer flights of beer which are perfect for sampling a little bit of everything.

Their shop has all kinds of great gift options: t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies, posters, glassware, and of course gift cards. One of my favorites is this thermal hoodie tee. And for only $2, you can add a 10 pack of coasters to that custom 6 pack.

You can also head to Rozi's for a premade gift basket. 

The Cleveland's 24 pack Micro-brew will made your loved one VERY happy. They also have a tasty Buckeye State basket that features all things Ohio and a very affordable Seasonal Assorted 8 pack Micro for those who can't get enough of Christmas beers. For the home brewer, they also have brewing supplies and a Beer of the Month Club.

If the beer lover also loves chocolate, then combine a 6 piece gift box of Lilly's Chocolates and a 6 pack for a taste sensation! They can help you make sure the pairings are perfect.

Chuck's Fine Wine has a over 400 beers plus accessories, signs, delicious food items, glassware and a beer club. Heinen's, Whole Foods and Market District by Giant Eagle and other spots that have great beer selections.
