What do you get the beer enthusiast in your life for the holidays?
We all know that man or woman who takes the time to smell every beer, savors all of it, and then wants to talk about the liquid. Luckily, those are our people!
1a. If you know what beer your “beer person” likes: take that information to a knowledgeable beer shop and ask the staff for a recommendation. If you know that your beer person likes a porter or a stout, then that person can recommend something special in a bottle or can, or something from the taps that can be growlered or crowlered.
1b. If you don’t have a lot of beer information, your “beer person” just likes beer: visit a specialty shop like ours where we have special growlers. Growlers are designed to bring draft-fresh beer for home enjoyment. We sell the most diverse lineup of growlers. We have simple amber glass growlers for $6 and we have super-high tech and specialized growlers, double-wall vacuum-sealed mini portable draft systems that use CO2 cartridges to re-pour a draft beer straight from the top shelf of your fridge. If your “beer person” likes drinking draft beer at home, you’re covered.
2. Don’t forget the stocking stuffers! Remember that beer soap, beer books (Including books on Florida’s unique beer history), and bottle openers can be great additions to a beer person’s holidays.
3. How about something unforgettable for the beer enthusiast that has everything? Look no further. 99 Bottles has a secret locker club called the Orange Key Holders. You get an orange key and a locker. Every month, our team at 99 Bottles selects several bottles/cans of craft beer to place in the locker. Sometimes it’s old favorites, sometimes it’s new and cutting-edge beers that we can only get a small amount and it doesn’t even make the shelves! And who doesn’t love the occasional surprise?
4. Still don’t quite know what to get? Remember that 99 Bottles Gift Certificates never expire, and you can gift the experience of a trip to 99 Bottles. For an extra touch, put the gift certificate in one of our specialty glasses.
5. Don’t forget to treat yourself! Whether you’re a beer person, or a wine lover, or just someone who enjoys good food, you can get as good as you give. If buying gifts for your beer- loving friends gets too stressful, sample some of the merchandise! In a store like ours, we embrace great wine the same way we love world-class beer! Ask our team for suggestions or take a chance on some extraordinary liquid (because that’s our specialty). Make sure you trust your beeriest gift-giving to the advocates and merchants of extraordinary liquid, like the team at 99 Bottles on Second Street. They may not have a bow, but they certainly have the beer and beer-themed items that will make this the headiest Christmas and hoppiest new year imaginable.
