We’re a little late for the 12 days of Christmas as Santa will soon suit up and head to a chimney near you.
With that in mind… Have you taken care of all the beer-loving gents and gals on your list? Have you picked up stuffers for those stockings?
If not, we’ve got some last-minute gift ideas for you from our friends in the greater Los Angeles craft beer community.
If there’s any that we missed, please feel free to share in the comments! And it goes without saying that your local neighborhood brewery could use your support now more than ever. So if you’re in the holiday spirit or just thirsty — drop in, grab a couple of your favorite brews and a gift card, and show your support!
Now… on with the gift guide!
