Making beer at home is more than a hobby; it’s a real passion, and for some, it becomes a lifelong profession. Beer is noble like that. You take care of it from grain to bottle, days and weeks on end, only to share one good beer with friends.

If you know someone that fits the description, then you have a home brewer in your life. This is an odd bunch! And that means finding the right gift for a homebrewer is a bit complicated.

When you brew beer at home, that’s kind of what you think about all day long, meaning regular gifts might not cause the impact you thought they would.

I’ve put together a fun list of gift ideas for all of us who care for a homebrewer. These are gifts that will get them, at least for a second, away from those kettles and buckets — gifts any homebrewer will deeply appreciate!

Brewing beer is all about taking notes. You learn a lot from each batch. Writing down recipes, temperatures, densities, your process and other details helps you become a better brewer. Take notes people!

Some homebrewers are just disorganized, while others are meticulous. Either way, they all need a proper homebrew journal, and this beauty right here is just the right one for all experience levels, homebrewers and pros alike.

With space for over seventy recipes, hop charts, yeast strain chart and a conversion table, brewing is more fun than ever.
