Lavishly illustrated with more holiday beers than you knew even existed, author Don Russell — better known to the world as Philadelphia beer columnist “Joe Sixpack” — recounts tale after tale of the traditions and history that made holiday beers so special. There are also recipes, trivia and Russell’s list of the “World’s 50 Best Christmas Beers.”

Microscopic Beer Tie

Normally, beer ties tend to be novelties, the goofy sort that you couldn’t wear to any serious or even semi-serious function where a suit and tie was called for. These, on the other, are pretty cool. They’ve taken what beer looks like under a microscope, similar to Beer Shots, where you can see photographs of many different beers taken using a special optical microscope camera. Then they’ve taken those and converted them to fabric in many different color schemes. Each one comes with information about how it was done and which beer it is, not to mention proceeds go to the university who made these, a worthy cause. Art and beer. It almost makes me want to wear a tie.

Beer and Cocktails. Tie one on. The startling clarity of your favorite cocktails and beer, as visualized through the microscope, is revealed in the breathtaking patterns and unique designs found in the Molecular Expressions Cocktail Collection limited edition neckties.

Beer Ties

Combining the elements of art, science, and fashion, the original creator of the Molecular Expressions designer neckties, Stonehenge, Ltd., has produced collections that have presented consumers with beautiful designs from nature, while educating them about compelling subjects such as vitamins and Moon Rocks. The Cocktail Collection provides an education on drinking and driving while simultaneously enabling the conscientious consumer to “tie one on” safely before driving.

Beer Bands

While we’re not fans of drinking straight from the bottle, sometimes it’s a necessity. And when you do, it’s often hard to tell whose bottle is whose. Luckily, the Modern Poverty Store has the answer: Beer Bands. They look like those rubber bracelets people wear to support a cause, but they’re designed to fit around a beer bottle to identify which one is yours. Depending on how stretchy they are, they may even fit around a pint glass.

Beer Bands

Available in four different themes, Designated Driver, Mine Mine Mine, Personality Control and How To Say I’m Drunk, each set of twelve is $12.95.

Rogue Stout & Chocolate Gift Boxes

If you’re looking to satisfy the sweet tooth and a love of beer of that special someone this holiday season, Chicago choclatier Vosges Haut-Chocolat may have just what you’re looking for in these two chocolate and beer gift boxes, featuring beer from Rogue.

Mo’s Bacon Bar & Rogue Shakespeare Stout Gift Box
Rogue Shakespeare is an oatmeal stout, distinctly mellower than its Irish ancestors. And it was crowned the 2008 World Beer Best Stout of the year. Oatmeal stout dates back to the 1800s when it was discovered that the addition of oatmeal to the brewing process yielded a “healthier” beer, touted as a virtual cure–all. Rogue’s Shakespeare Stout is an ebony–tinged brew, laden with notes of chocolate and just the right amount of hops to compliment the umami notes in the Bacon and Chocolate line.

Caramel Marshmallows & Rogue Chocolate Stout Gift Box
Rogue Chocolate Stout fills your glass with its rich, ebony yumminess, revealing mellow oats, chocolate malts and hops through its creamy head. Its Comfort Food coupling just makes relaxing easier, with layers of sweet Madagascar bean marshmallow balanced by the bitter hops finish and caramely nuttiness complementing the earthen malts. Oh and chocolate, lots of chocolate.
