Christmas is coming up soon. How’s your gift list doing?
If you’re falling behind it might be tempting to go for a standard bathrobe and socks combo. When you want to really show a friend or family member how much you care for them, though, being a little more creative goes a long way. This means whipping out a pen and paper to figure out a favorite hobby or old favorite that could see their eyes lighting up in December. For those in your life that love to drink and party, an insulated growler might be your best idea yet. It’s a classy way of storing large quantities of beer, able to be ported from party to party or used as decoration in the kitchen.
It’s time to talk beer and custom growlers.
Americans Love Alcohol
The insulated growler is a prime gift for the Christmas season. Why wouldn’t it be? Americans love alcohol and express this love in the form of visiting their favorite sports bar every weekend or visiting their breweries of choice to taste seasonal blends. A recent study found 15% of Americans will drink beer once a week. Americans on the whole consume an average 27 gallons of beer and cider per person each year. When you buy a double wall growler you give this love the respect it deserves.
Seasonal Blends Are Coming Up
The autumn and winter season boasts plenty of delicious seasonal blends you won’t be able to get anywhere else. Why not buy your friend or family member a six-pack alongside that insulated growler? Hard cider is a sweet and tart touch-up to the falling of the leaves, particularly when combined with light touches of berry or honey. Dark beers with chocolate or cocoa notes can also ease the transition between warm and cold weather. Pumpkin spice beer not only tastes great, but often comes in whimsical packaging, giving your beer gifts that much more seasonal relevance.
Local Breweries Are Everywhere
Support your local businesses on your way to the perfect insulated growler. The American craft beer market is worth over $20 billion and is climbing steadily as more Americans embrace their favorite drink in all its forms. Back in 2015 the number of operating breweries in the United States saw a 15% increase, totaling 4,200 and setting a record for the largest number of breweries at any time in American history. Do a little casual browsing and see which unique blends or festive packaging catches your eye.
Beer Can Be Good For You
There’s even a health benefit or two you can help your friend or family member enjoy. A little alcohol once in a while is a great way to slow down your heart rate and reduce your blood pressure, perfect for managing chronic stress. According to a 2016 Gallup poll, around 45% of legal drinkers much prefer beer over wine and spirits. Another interesting study was released by the National Institutes Of Health. They reported 20% of moderate drinkers were twice as likely to exercise as people who don’t drink at all.
The Best Gifts For Beer Lovers
All right. You’re all done figuring out which six-pack of seasonal beer or hard cider to get for the Christmas season. Now you need to know which beer growlers stand out from the pack. The insulated growler is the most popular for obvious reasons — it keeps the liquid deliciously cold no matter the temperature of the room or the car. You can pair your beer growlers with other fun gifts, such as a beer carbonation chart or growler keg for those extravagant get-togethers. Whether you get a classic amber growler or a stainless steel growler depends on personal taste.
Don’t be generic this Christmas season. Go the extra mile and get something that’s as thoughtful as it is functional.
