Well, the start of it at least. Over the next few weeks we’re going to share a series of gift guides for all variety of gift giving. Hopefully a few of the items on our lists are perfect for someone you’re shopping for, or maybe its just the perfect gift to give yourself. Some of these items are definitely on our wish list.

To start it off here are a few gifts for the beer drinker in your life or the host who you know appreciates a good brew.

33 Books offers a suite of “tools for considered consumption” for a host of food and libations. Each one is well designed and offers a unique flavor wheel that is an engaging infographic. Whether it is for your favorite beer geek or other connoisseur these books are a great way to promote and encourage the experiences that your recipient enjoys. 33_BOTTLES_BEER_COVER_1024x1024.jpg

 

The Snake Bite Co. Bottle Opener is more about cans of beer than bottles. This clever tool marks the ubiquitous can of beer  with a functional bite.

Pop Chart Lab has a whole slew of brilliant posters about beer. The Diagram of Beer is by far our favorite. It can be hard to navigate the varieties and this poster makes it easy and beautiful.

If you’ve never experienced a magnetic koozie you are truly missing one of life’s great conveniences.  Red Clouds Collective bring style and grace to this low culture icon.

If you need to pull out all the stops for the beer drinker that has everything, the growlers from Portland Growler Company fits the bill. Their uniquely glazed Blue Crystal growler is a work of art, almost too beautiful to fill it with beer.

About michael

Michael grew up as a suburban hooligan bugging his older sister and spending his time in train yards, alleyways and rooftops while studying graphic design at Herron School of Art and Design. Later he wandered aimlessly, working in print and copy shops. Interest in art and public space led him to earn a Masters in Urban Planning at the University of Cincinnati, where he learned to crunch numbers, make maps, and appreciate the city for its chaos. Michael's focus on urban design and economic development led to his years of work in the public art field as an arts administrator. At VisuaLingual, he is Chief Exploring Officer, constantly looking for new adventures and ways to connect his love of the outdoors and urban spaces.
