Every year my mother asks me for a list of things she can get me for Christmas this year. It’s not like I am going to get everything
off the list or anything, but she needs ideas. We see each other 3-4 times a year now, and she really doesn’t know anymore what I want or need. Sure, I could just tell her to give me money, but I know she really likes to see her kids open up stuff on Christmas morning.
This year is the first time since beginning this blog that I have beer related gifts on my mind. In the past I have always asked for different music gifts. Everything from cds to stereo equipment to concert dvds have wound up underneath the tree. This year is a little different. I’ve been thinking a lot more about what I could possibly get that would assist me in my new venture into the world of craft beer.
These are some of the items that have made it on this years Christmas list:
1. New glassware – If you read my review of Old Rasputin, then you saw my note at the end that I recounted the sad demise of my tulip glass. Due to a limited supply of glasses in my possession, this actually leaves me with only snifters. Therefore, I am asking for a few different styles of glasses.
2. The Craft of Stone Brewing Co. Book – I haven’t really heard a lot of chatter about this book. If you read this site often at all, then you know that Stone is one of my favorite breweries. So, I’m curious to give it a read.
3. The Oxford Companion to Beer – I have actually heard both good and chatter about this book. I think I more want it out of morbid fascination.
Although this is a kind of short list right now, I’m interested in making it grow. I wouldn’t be surprised if my wife snuck me a random 750 ml bottle or something, but I’m not sure what else to put on here.
So, what are some of your beer christmas presents you want this year? I’m certainly searching for a few more ideas myself, and I would love to steal some of yours.
