Gift Guide to Selecting the right Mr. Beer Kit for the soon to be brewer in your life.

As Father’s Day approaches you must be wondering what to get Dad? Another tie or maybe some more golf tees? Instead of thinking of all the mundane gifts, think of something cool and exciting. If your Dad likes beer, like really likes beer, then get him a Mr. Beer Kit! As Cousin Eddie would say, “Clark, that’s the gift that keeps on giving the whole year”.  

The great thing about a Mr. Beer Kit is, it’s simple to use and you don’t need to get anything else. As long as Dad has some common kitchen items, can follow easy step by step instructions and work a can opener he should be good to go.

We offer two main types of Kits, our Starter Kit’s and our Complete Kits. The Starter Kits will come with our 2-Gallon Fermenter, a Mr. Beer Refill, and our No Rinse Cleanser. Everything he needs to get started brewing.

The Complete Kit’s will come with everything included in the Starter Kit’s, but it will also include Bottles & Caps and our amazing Mr. Beer Carbonation Drops which make bottling ridiculously easy.

Our Starter Kit’s and Complete Kit’s come in 6 different flavors.

We have our American Lager Kits which are great for those who enjoy light beer. Similar to Budweiser, Bud Light, Sam Adams Boston Lager, or just any light American style lager.

The next most popular style is our IPA Kits. We offer 2 different types of IPA’s. Our Long Play IPA is going to be a light color west coast IPA, very similar to the IPA’s you find in a lot of local craft breweries. The other IPA is our Diablo IPA. This beer is going to be more of an amber or reddish color with all kinds of hop flavor. These kits are great for those who love the extremely hoppy beers.

Our Northwest Pale Ale Kits perfect for anyone who likes Sierra Nevada’s Pale Ale or any beer that is light in color with a mild hop flavor. If your buying this for someone who is into craft beer this would be a great kit for them as the Pale Ale styles is a staple in most breweries.

Let’s get into some darker beers. We have our Bewitched Amber Ale and our Churchill’s Nut Brown Ale Kits. Both kits are great for those who enjoy the darker beers in life.  The Bewitched Amber Ale is smooth beer that is perfectly balanced in flavor. The Churchill’s But Brown Ale has some great malty flavors and would be perfect for those who enjoy brown ales like Newcastle’s Brown Ale.

Now, if your Dad is a true hobbyist. He enjoys fixing things and building things and your concerned these kits might peak his interested then we some alternative as well.

We offer two kits that come with more ingredients for the brewing process and these utilize the FastFerment Conical Fermenter.  We have our Light Speed Blonde Kit and our Horse’s Ass Ale Kit. The recipes include with these kits include some hop additions and some other ingredients to help spice up the brew day.

Along with those we also offer 3 different 1-Gallon Beer Kits that feature specialty grains, hops and a smaller glass fermenter. These are great for brewing in small spaces or just brewing small batches at a time.

Now if you want to get crazy and go the opposite we offer our 5-Gallon Craft BrewMax Kit. This kit comes with everything that is needed to brew and bottle 5-Gallons of beer. It includes our Classic American Light Refill as well which is similar to a Bud Light or any light American style beer.

The great thing about all our Mr. Beer Kits is that they are reusable. The only thing that would be needed to brew again would be a Mr. Beer Refill or to choose from over 100 Mr. Beer Recipes.

If your looking to get Dad a kit, and an extra brew to keep him going we recommend starting him with a second Refill before moving on the Recipes. (If you want to learn what a Mr. Beer Refill is, check out our What is a Mr. Beer Refill Video Blog.)

Just remember, no matter what Mr. Beer Kit you get Dad he will be forever grateful that you introduced him to homebrewing and did not get him a year subscription to the jelly of the month club.
