And also Brent’s Fiery Micro-Brew Beer Brittle, beer brittle “with a kick.” It’s $9.95 for an 8 oz. bag.

Bell’s Christmas Ale

From our fields to your holiday. A malt driven scotch ale, made with 100% Michigan grown barley and a blend of Pacific Northwest and Michigan hops. A bit of cheer from the north country, sure to make any occasion festive.

Bell's Christmas Ale

Bell’s Brewery is creating a new holiday ale this year, it’s called Christmas Ale and is a Scotch Ale, “brewed with 100% Michigan barley and a blend of Pacific Northwest and Michigan hops.”

Carlsberg Tree

Most of the trees made with beer bottles use only one kind of bottle, giving it a certain symmetry. What makes this tree different is that the creator used a different bottle for each of the four layers.

Pub Glasses

Although the name of the online store is “Pub Glasses,” they also have a plethora of other beer-related items. Although much of the logoware tends toward the Guinness family, there are plenty of great undecorated glasses of all shapes and sizes.

And perhaps best of all, because their business is also engraving, practically every glass they sell can be personalized for that special someone.

Avery Old Jubilation

Old Jubilation Ale, from Avery Brewing in Boulder, Colorado, is one of two holiday seasonals that they brew. This one is a strong ale with a gorgeous mahogany hue, a hint of hazelnuts, and a finish reminiscent of mocha and toffee. No spices, just a perfect blend of five specialty malts. And best of all, it’s cellarable for 2 years.
