SaveOnBrew's Gifts for Beer Drinkers - Part 2: Ten for Under $100
12.02.2012 18:52 PM
Welcome to PART 2 of our holiday gift-giving guide. These are a little more pricey, but hey, YOGBO (you only go broke once), right?
One Liter Glass Beer Boot
Amazon Says: For the perfect individual-use beer boot, choose these glass boots from Stoltze, an internationally recognized name in glassware. A humorous prank, the boots form a vacuum bubble at the end of the glass unless tilted properly. The result is a splash of beer to the face at the end of the beverage for unwary guests.
SaveOnBrew Says: Nothing like getting splashed in the face with beer. We don't care where you live, that's just good fun (and most likely an ass-kicking). But you know you've pined for them whilst out drinking at the country bar, or some big-ass burger joint. Now it can be yours... ALL YOURS!
The 80-Ounce Beer Belly Belly
Amazon Says: The Beerbelly brings Freedom to the Beverage. Now you can drink what you want, when you want, where you want, with no hassles and for less money. what more could you ask for? Now you can drink your favorite beverage at the movies, the ballgame, anywhere, you decide.
SaveOnBrew Says: Sometimes you wonder: gee, how low can I go? The beer belly takes you one step closer to the bottom, friends. See ya there!
The Oxford Companion to Beer
Amazon Says: The first major reference work to investigate the history and vast scope of beer, The Oxford Companion to Beer features more than 1,100 A-Z entries written by 166 of the world's most prominent beer experts. Attractively illustrated with over 140 images, the book covers everything from the agricultural makeup of various beers to the technical elements of the brewing process, local effects of brewing on regions around the world, and the social and political implications of sharing a beer.
SaveOnBrew Says: You know who goes to Oxford? DO YOU!? Really
really smart people. Just because we can't tell you who they are doesn't
mean we don't know!
Bongzilla Beer Bong with 6 Tubes
Amazon Says: BONGZILLA The 6 tube Funnel Beer Bong that is mounted to a pole! This is the lastest technology in Multi-Tube Beer Bongs and is the newest Beer Bong in the Head Rush Beer bong Family. This product IS the life of the Party!
SaveOnBrew Says: Bongzilla? C'mon. And with a picture of a hot
chick? Sure, it's not for everyone, but for a certain 21 - 25 year old
segment of the population, this is GOLD, Jerry. Gold.
Mr. Beer Premium Gold Edition Beer Kit
Amazon Says: This kit includes two of our most popular beer mixes and the 2-gallon fermenter is made from FDA-compliant plastic, which leaves no taste or flavor migration. Lightweight and shatter resistant, it has a wide mouth that allows for easy cleaning.
SaveOnBrew Says: Premium. PRE-ME-IUM. It doesn't get any better than premium.
Beer Bottle Toilet Flush Handle
Amazon Says: This is a great gift item for bartenders, liquor store owners or the college crowd (legal drinking age only). Our bottle isn't limited in consumption.
SaveOnBrew Says: "Our bottle isn't limited in consumption"?!?! What does that even mean? Still pretty cool, though. It's one of those nonsense things you say just to mess with people. Like "I probably would have never graduated college if it hadn't been for that horse and head of lettuce!"
Guinness Pewter Beer Tankard
Amazon Says: Imagine yourself at a party. You're surrounding by guys drinking Corona out of the bottle. But there's you: drinking Extra Stout out of a stylish yet refined tankard. You've got taste, style, class- and your choice of drink shows it. Women will think "What is this before me, this man surrounded by mere children? I simply must know!"
SaveOnBrew Says: There's something about TANKARD that just says "man's man," know-what-we-mean?
BrewTender Tabletop Beer & Beverage Dispenser
Amazon Says: The BrewTender dispenser keeps up to 80 ounces of your favorite beverage ice cold and at your fingertips! If you don't want to be stuck pouring drinks all night, simply use this party beverage dispenser and your family, friends, party guests, and bar patrons can serve themselves!
SaveOnBrew Says: Cold beer, never a bad thing.
Artisan Metal Works Insulated Stainless Steel Beverage Tub
Amazon Says: Hammered stainless steel Beverage tub.
SaveOnBrew Says: Wow. Amazon kept it short and simple. We can do a little better: Quality.
