Beerables.net, "The Accessory Store for the Beer Enthusiast," offers a variety of unique gifts for beer lovers, ideal for gift giving to the Dads (Father's Day is Sunday, June 15) and grads on your list.
"We're excited to present distinctive gifts from our travels to European breweries and hard-to-find in the United States," said Glenn and Jennifer Faulk, founders of the online retailer. The Faulks encourage gifters to consider the recipient's work, hobbies and personality type when deciding what to give. Following are a few ideas with prices ranging from $15.00 to $65.00. Of course, for extra cheer, add their favorite beer.
The Beer Geek - For the better beer aficionado, there's Das Boot ($65.00 each), a 2 liter glass drinking boot popularized in the movie "BeerFest," decorated with the logos of the Spaten, Weihenstephan or Hofbrau breweries, and made for sharing. In fact, the boots were created to commemorate the tradition of soldiers' communally drinking beer from a leather boot during World War I. Tip: drink with the toe down to avoid spills.
The World Traveler - Globe trotters will enjoy the Global Glassware Collection ($39.99), eight distinctive glasses that highlight the unique characteristics of various beer styles and include Pilsner, Kolsch, Hand Glass, Tulip, Snifter and Weiss glasses, each with a full-color logo of a different world-class beer including Stiegl, Delirium Tremens, and La Fin du Monde.
The Traditionalist - A Weihenstephan German Stein ($35.00) with a detailed pewter lid is salt glazed, holds .5 liters and features the logo of the world's oldest existing brewery located in Bavaria, which clearly values tradition every bit as much as he does.
The Collector - Inspire him to exclaim "Prost!" when he next raises a toast with an authentic Hofbrauhaus Oktoberfest 2007 Black Stein ($38.00). Emblazoned with the Munich brewery's gold lion insignia, the salt glazed, 1 liter stein will take center stage in any collection. Also available are souvenir t-shirts and baseball hats ($15.00 each).
The Legal Eagle - Prove that your on the right side of the law to your attorney father or a law school graduate with a four-pack of Delirium Tremens Snifter Glasses ($17.00), which pub owners have deemed "The Most Stolen Glass In America." Each infamous glass is emblazoned with the name and "Pink Elephant" logo of the award-winning beer from Belgium.
The Creative - Artistic types will appreciate one or a series of six full-color reprints of Spaten Beer Vintage Advertising Posters ($40.00 each) from the early 1900s, recently found buried deep in the warehouse of the Bavarian brewery and reproduced in limited quantities. Featuring original illustrations of tall ships, bar maids and other subjects, the posters helped Spaten become the largest-selling Bavarian beer in the United States.
