The Beer Snob
We all have one of these in our life, and we may even be one of them. Who doesn’t love trying out new craft beers and checking out breweries?
Featured Gift: Rastal Teku Glass Set of 2
Beer is a dish best served cold, and in a Rastal Teku glass. These German-made beer glasses were designed by an Italian brewer, Teo Musso, and a well-known Italian sensory analyst and beer expert who goes by the nickname Kuaska. That’s a whole lot of European genius packed into one glass! Well, with all this expertise, you shouldn’t be surprised that these are world-renowned as THE top tasting glasses in existence. Any fan of beer will appreciate how much these crystal glasses highlight the taste of their best brews.

It seems like every time you see this person, they crack open a bottle of wine. By the time that bottle’s gone, they’ve told you way more than you needed to know about their personal life, or their annoying co-worker. Luckily, there were enough laughs (and wine) along the way to keep you coming to see them.
Featured Gift: The Spanish Porron
The porron is used as its own drinking game in Spain, where the goal is to extend the pitcher out as far as possible without spilling it all over yourself. A great way to display your faves and a party game all rolled into one? Sounds like the perfect gift for that happy-go-lucky wine lover. Add even more fun to the party with Prosecco Pong!

The Fanatical Sports Fan/Tailgater
Being located in Buffalo, KegWorks holds a serious amount of pride for our Bills. For those of you who don’t follow Buffalo sports like we do, the Bills are bad. To make it worse, the NFL punished our team and taxpayers for not ponying up for an expensive dome stadium by giving us the gift of three December home games.
Featured Gift: The Beer Mitt Koozie Glove
I, for one, will not subject myself to bad football in freezing temperatures, but I know of some die-hards who will be there if only to continue their streak of home games attended so that they can rub it in people’s faces during any discussion about love of the team. For those people, I will find it easy to buy them the gift of warm hands when holding a cold beer.
