The Beau’s Holiday Gift Guide 2017
We’re all about spreading the merriment here at Beau’s.
We want you to spend your valuable time on fun, festive stuff – like listening to a curated playlist of holiday tunes with your friends – not doggedly combing the internet for tired old gift ideas.
That’s why we’ve taken the time to do it for you.
But these gift ideas aren’t tired or played out. They’re rad.
We’ve even gone ahead and put together little profiles of different types of folks on your gift list.
From the frequent traveler to the generous soul – and everyone in between – here’s a nice list of cool, affordable gift ideas that won’t disappoint.
For the frequent traveler
If you’re shopping for someone who is always traveling, the Beau’s dopp kit is a great, simple gift.
It also works if you’re shopping for someone who’s just really disorganized — you may gently encourage a little practicality in their lives with this gift.
For the person who already has all of the Beau’s beer and merch
So you’re shopping for a Beau’s fan. You may be stumped by the Beau’s selection – what does my friend already own? What do they not own?
Well, have you heard of Halcyon Barrel House?
Halcyon is a new branch on the Beau’s family tree. By giving a Beau’s fan the gift of Halcyon beer and merch, you can be confident that you’re giving a gift that may have not yet landed on your friend’s radar, but they will definitely love.
Bonus: Do you know a Beau’s super fan and want to blow their minds?

For the person with a cool denim jacket to trick out
You’ve seen that nice sherpa-lined denim coat that your friend is always sporting. You’ve also noticed the lack of flair on said coat.
For the sneakerhead (but you’re not about to spend sneaker money on someone else)
Get the NRML can glass for the sneakerhead in your life. If sneakers aren’t in your budget, get this glassware that’s decked out with some classic sneaker silhouettes!
We’ve teamed up with our friends from Canada’s premier streetwear and sneaker boutique, Ottawa’s NRML, for their 20th anniversary for a special collaboration.
Together we’ve created a limited-run capsule collection that features a co-branded New Era cap, a heavy duty CYC hoodie, two t-shirts, all-over print socks, glassware, and a pin set.
And since it’s all about the beer, we’ve got a special Lug Tread bottle to commemorate NRML’s 20 years in the game.
Bonus! Throw in The Beau’s Mix: Winter, because it’s really good! (video)
For that special someone, on a special occasion
Giving the gift of traditional bubbly is cool, but grabbing some bubbly beer and popping that instead this New Year’s Eve would be much cooler.
New Lang Syne is a strong, deep-golden Belgian Tripel that’s aged in white wine barrels, then bottle-conditioned to sparkling effervescence so you can pop the cork on good times.
Did you know that Etsy and Beau’s are both B-Corporations?
Certified B-Corps (Benefit Corporations) are for-profit companies that meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability, and who choose to use their business as a force for good.
Why not visit Etsy and choose some artisanal glassware to drink that New Lang Syne with?
For the coffee lover
The Bottle Imp is a strong, dark, roasty and rich creation. This rendition of a Russian Imperial Stout is also infused with a blend of Nicaraguan and Guatemalan fair-trade organic coffee. Complex and contemplative, and with well-integrated alcohol warmth, The Bottle Imp is best served in a snifter, sipped slowly and savoured.
Bonus: The Bottle Imp features Ottawa’s Bridgehead’s Guatemala: The Fruit of Concepción.
For the folks with the recently finished basement
Help them decorate that basement with the Beau’s Tractor Tin Sign.
For the chef
Having a chef in your life is the best. If you want to subtly hint at getting them to cook for you, pick up Debauch: A cookbook for social rogues online, or in-store at the brewery in Vankleek Hill!
For the generous soul
It wouldn’t be a Beau’s list without a shout out to our longtime partners and friends at Ottawa’s Operation Come Home (OCH) and the amazing work they do.
Remember, when you use our home delivery service, Buy Your Beau’s Online (BYBO.ca), you’re helping employ street-affected youth, and the delivery fee is donated to OCH!
Happy holidays from your friends at Beau’s!
Please give generously this year.
‘Tis the season.
