Handmade Wooden Six-Pack Holder by Holly Collingwood
Local Loveland woodworker Jerran Peery makes a serious six pack holder. For only $35.00 it is made of pine with several handle and finishing options, has a bottle opener attached, and makes a great host or hostess gift for all the holiday parties. Just fill it with a favorite six pack, and it is guaranteed to make any beer lover happy. In the summer it will work well as a condiment carrier for backyard BBQ’s. You can find Perry’s six pack holders at the retail store “Projects” located at 3228 E. Eisenhower Blvd in Loveland.
Who says that a beer-themed gift has to come in a bottle or can? Salus Bath and Body partnered with Fort Collins Brewery to create a line of soaps—scented to match FCB’s popular beer varieties. Bring your favorite FCB beer to your bathtub or shower with scents like Chocolate Stout, made with natural malt and oatmeal, or Black Sheep IPA, which includes citrus fruit and coffee. Also available is Hoptitude, with a refreshing infusion of citrus and hops. These soaps boast premium ingredients and smell fantastic, while still nodding to their boozy inspirations. At $7, this soap isn’t going to break the bank and could make a solid stocking stuffer for the beer enthusiast in your life. Pick up a bar at Fort Collins Brewery’s website (FCB Soap) or directly at their store on Lincoln Ave. You might as well pick up a pint while you’re there.

Simply slip the handle over your handle-less cup and voila, you have a handle for your cup. Handle This Cup works on most cups, making it perfect for every event. Ron Redfern and Brian Franzen are the brains behind Handle This Cup and made the handles stack-able so you can carry multiple drinks with an ergonomic design.

The Pint Magazine has officially debuted a fashion line with their ‘winter edition’ tee. The black shirt is made of soft, breathable, 100% pre-shrunk cotton, and features original artwork from stroke14′. The classic winter scene encapsulates what it means to live a winter in Colorado. A silhouetted figure hauls an ice cold mug of beer on his horse-drawn sleigh through a frigid mountain pass, hoping to soon bring joy to his family and friends. We know that when he gets there all will be well, because there is nothing like sharing local brew with loved ones around a cozy cabin stove, somewhere deep in the mountains.
Shirts can be purchased at The Pint Magazine Store along with stickers, for the ones that just don’t get it.
