Star Wars Beer Gifts

starwarsheader

With the upcoming release of Star Wars: Rogue One (which we are super pumped about) we thought we’d revisit Star Wars themed beer gifts for Christmas. May the force be with you all.


Millennium Falcon Bottle Opener

bottle_opener_-_millenium_falcon_1024x1024If you’re expecting a ‘this bottle opener made the kessel run in 12 parsecs’ line – you’ve come to the right place! Who knew a Corellian freighter could inspire so much hope and happiness, especially now that it can open your brew!


Han Solo in Carbonite Beer Fridge

1caf_han_solo_fridgeThey say it holds ‘soda’ in the product description but that is just an old Jedi mind trick to drink more sugary fizzy liquid. We know what this fridge is for.


Wookie Beer Koozy

chewbacca-beer-kooziesPut your bowcaster down and grab this can Koozy for the ultimate in beer protection. It’s furry like a wookie and probably the closest we’ll ever come to petting a real Chewbacca… cuz Chewbacca is real, dammit. *makes a Chewbacca roaring noise*


It’s a Trap Beer Glass

il_570xn-329169721Etsy is filled with glorious items. We found this gem amongst many many many Star Wars themed items. I imagine every time you drink out of this mug you will utter Admiral Ackbar’s famous line numerous times. Who knows, the more you fill the mug, the more you may sound like the great Admiral?


R2D2 Beer Cooler

r2d2-cooler_flickrhivemindPretty sure you can’t buy this, but it was just too good not to post in this blog. Imagine this in your backyard? It combines the greatest Astromech droid of all time with BEER! Unreal. Too bad it’s not available at retail anytime soon.


LightSaber Bottle Opener

star-wars-lightsaber-bottle-openerSadly, lightsabers aren’t a reality yet. (my hands and arms thank you for that) and this may be the closest thing to opening your beer with the magical Jedi weapon. They say the force is an energy field created by all living things, but do they really mean that beer is the great connector? Will we ever truly know?

Best Beer Gifts That You Can Wear

wearheader

Not all beer gifts you can drink, sadly. We threw this list together of beer gifts that you can wear. Hats, shirts, hoodies and even socks and underwear. If you have the body part, we found you something to cover it with! Have yourself a Hoppy Christmas!


 

Boneshaker Baseball T from Amsterdam Brewery

bone_baseball_1024x1024Unfiltered, like the beer itself, this kick ass baseball tee is perfect for the fan of this great brewery and most importantly skeletons who ride bikes!


Toque from Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery

winter-toque-16-600x600Put this on the head of a special someone and it will not only keep them warm… it will also alert the world that it is 5 o’clock somewhere. Funky design from a funky brewery that make quality beer. The Ontario Brewing Awards gave Hoptical Illusion by Flying Monkeys the ‘Best In Show’ label at this years’ award show.


Hoodie from Great Lakes Brewery

glb_hoodie_002_1024x1024Let’s face it. You and the beer lovers in your life need hoodies. The more the merrier. When has anyone ever said “You know, I have too many cool hoodies. The answer is: never. This one is super simple with the GLB logo. Can’t lose!


Hockey Jersey from Beau’s

hockey_sweater_largeThis jersey is no joke. We are uncertain if it’s too nice to wear playing hockey, but if you do wear it, rest assured that you will be rocking the finest jersey on the ice. You’ll be repping Vankleek Hill with that killer crest… now go work on skating backwards… you need the help.


Racerback Tank from Pommies

pd_womenbt2Show cider pride with this sleek tank from Pommies. Show your gluten-free friend that you care and support Ontario farmers (because Pommies only use apples from Ontario farms). Win/Win.


Boxer Shorts from Minhas Breweries

minhasbrewery_merchandise_boxershorts_grandeBoxer shorts from… wait for it…  Boxer Lager! It’s too good. How do you not even own these yet?


Baseball Hat from Gananoque Brewing

gan-hatWhy not cop one of these bad boys for the beer lover in your life. It’s one of those conversation starters… “Hey friend, where did you get that hat? Sorry, can you pronounce it again? How does the beer taste?” One size fits all!


Socks from Steam Whistle

dress_socks_1024x1024You have a friend who really need these socks. It could be because they love Steam Whistle Pilsner, or it could be because they really need to step up their style game. Either way, you’ll put a smile on someone’s face faster than you can say ‘stocking stuffer’.


Trucker Hat from All Or Nothing

black_brim_yellow_truckersmallerPut your dukes up with this super cool mesh back hat. That shirtless chap is named Cornelius and he don’t mess around… neither do you… when that special someone wears this hat they will receive many compliments – and they will always remember you.
