Gift Guide: 5 Holiday Stocking Stuffers for Brewers
Those batches of beer, like your brewers, are continuously in motion.
As the holidays approach and your staff continues to work hard to bottle and distribute those final batches of seasonal beers, it's a good opportunity to thank them for making it all possible.
As the brewing season of 2023 approaches, help keep your brewers comfortable (and caffeinated) with some practical, brewer-friendly gifts.
Sometimes breweries have the tendency to be wet and humid environments. So, gift your brewers with a pair of moisture-wicking socks to keep their feet dry and comfy while they brew a big batch of your seasonal ale.
Moisture-control fibers, like wool, are often lighter and more breathable than cotton, and they have natural moisture-wicking characteristics that help keep feet dry.
It’s as simple as that!
Whether for those early-morning grain deliveries or late-night brew days, brewers like to stay caffeinated. Give your team the gift of a heavy-duty, well-insulated, coffee tumbler.
Tumblers are a sustainable alternative for your team, and they come in a variety of styles, meaning you can personalize a couple of handcrafted ones just for your crew.
A compact pocket knife can come in handy all over the brewery. Whether for tearing down boxes or opening grain bags, a pocket knife is the perfect tool for your brewers.
Either make sure everyone on your staff is equipped, or buy a couple of pocket knives to use across the team. The next time boxes of hops come in or a wrapped palette arrives, everyone in the brewhouse will be ready.
A brewer’s boots see plenty of action all year long. Whether keeping feet dry during CIP cycles or general brewing tasks, boots are a primary priority for a brewer's safety.
Every brewer has a preference for their boots (ankle or knee-high, for example), but the two most crucial factors are that the boots be non-slip and waterproof.
It would even be a benefit to a brewer to have an additional pair that are specially chemical-resistant to keep on hand for those CIP days!
A brewer’s boot is essential to every single brewer on the planet, so help your team walk safely into 2023 in a brand new pair of boots.

While we're on the subject of shoes, make sure your brewer's feet are well-supported given how much time they spend on them!
Brewers' hardworking feet can benefit from wearing insoles that give natural arch relief while minimizing stress on the feet, knees, hips, and joints.
Brewing can be a very labor-intensive job, with brewers on their feet for the entire day. Make sure that your team feels supported, literally.
In the spirit of the season, remember to get a gift for yourself as well as your brewing crew!
