Last Minute Gift Ideas for Local Beer Enthusiasts

Holiday shopping can be a daunting task, especially when you don’t know what to get someone. The good news is we’ve got some ideas here at MNBeer.com for the beer loving folks in your life. Here are some ideas for you to ponder as the time winds down.

Fulton Gift Pack
Fulton Beer, Red Table Meats, and The Lone Grazer Creamery have teamed up to bring you some fantastic snacks and beer to go, just in time for the holidays. For those of you who haven’t tried anything from either Red Table or The Lone Grazer, you are missing out. The set includes two Fulton pint glasses, a growler of beer, salami, and a wheel of cheese.
If you really want to impress someone, go with Worthy Adversary for your growler fill and they will love you forever. If that’s not your thing, you can’t go wrong with the Lonely Blonde. This took home Bronze at the Great American Beer Festival and should be in your fridge on the regular. Pick this set up at the Fulton taproom before they sell out. $50

Fair State Membership
Fair State Brewing is the Minneapolis cooperative brewery that has been making waves since they opened up shop just over a year ago. Now’s the time to get someone in on the fun by gifting them a membership. This gift will go a long way in that they will receive voting rights, happy hours, a free anniversary pint, and the biggest benefit….priority access to special releases. Their special bottle releases have really been a hit and as you probably know, they sell out fast. At the very least this would give your special friend or family member an excuse to get out of the house and enjoy a tasty local brew. Lifetime membership $200

Have a friend who has tried about every beer you can think of? Ha! There’s no way they have, and to prove it you should get them tickets to Northern Lights Rare Beer Fest coming up on March 12th at the Minnesota History Center. Here they will find the some of the rarest brews from some of the most respected breweries around the country. Here is the lineup from last year to give you a taste. $100

Land of Amber Waters
Got a history buff in your circle? Doug Hoverson’s Land of Amber Waters is the best record of the history of brewing here in Minnesota. This is still the best reference manual about the local suds that have been brewed over the years first published in 2007. One of the most impressive things about this written record are the illustrations of breweriana (yes, that’s a word) from around the state. This is one gift that should be on the coffee table of any Minnesota beer aficionado. $40

Lift Bridge Gift

If you are looking for a simple gift idea for a reasonable price, you might want to go with this gift pack from Lift Bridge Brewing. It includes a koozie, an empty growler, a key chain bottle opener, and a $15 gift card which is to be used to fill the growler with the beer of their choice. Pick this gift set up at their brewery which is located in Stillwater. $35
Also please remember to shop local whenever possible. There are many local merchants out there trying to feed their families.


On Tap: Fulton Insurrection IIPA

insurrectionHere’s one to watch for… Fulton Insurrection has returned. They haven’t brewed it for a couple of years and you’ve never been able to get it in 12 oz. bottles until now. This beer features over 3 pounds of Nelson Sauvin and Mosaic hops per barrel. Stop into the Fulton taproom for draft pours and growlers or watch your local retailer for 4-packs of bottles.


Fulton Maitrise IFA Launch Saturday

Funnamed(5)ulton is releasing another Garage Series beer in their taproom on Saturday at noon. You’ll also find this limited release on draft at various locations.

Maitrise (“May-treese”; translates from French as “expertise” or “mastery”) is a “new world imperial farmhouse ale” created from a blend of American and German wheat and barley malts,  Nelson Sauvin hops and French saison yeast. The beer weighs in at a surprising 9.5% ABV and 80 IBU. “Brilliant with tropical fruit, yet balanced with a tart palate that finishes soft and dry.”

Taproom launch Saturday at noon – $5/12 oz pour; $18 growlers. As with all Garage Series releases, it will only be around for a short time.

Fulton War & Peace Release Saturday

WarandPeaceI caught a little flack for dissing W. Axl Rose & the song “Patience” with Fulton’s last bottle release. I’ve yet to apologize (I’m more of a “Nighttrain” kind of guy.), but I’ll be much nicer with their latest release, War and Peace. A little secret? I’ve never read Russian author Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace.” I realize it doesn’t redeem me, but I do really like Peace Coffee. Not enough? An unlabeled bottle of Fulton’s Russian Imperial Stout was the first of their offerings to pass my lips before the brewery began producing beer for the public. Good enough?

In any case, the latest Garage Series beer from Fulton, War & Peace will be released this Saturday at their taproom. They’ll be offering 10 oz. pours for $6 and  750ml bottles for $15 each with a limit of two per person. And if you don’t get enough coffee in you from the beer, the fine folks from  Peace Coffee will be there sampling their brews as well.

Look for War & Peace around the Twin Cities on draft and in bottles in the following weeks. You’ll also want to mark February 6th on your calendar as Butcher & the Boar will be tapping one of the first War & Peace kegs, the aforementioned Patience (don’t whistle), and one of a few keds of Libertine aged in special Butcher & the Boar Knob Creek bourbon barrels.
