Holiday Gift Guide

Christmas is only two weeks away! Don’t panic, slackers…we’ve got you covered with this Holiday Gift Guide with cool ideas from our online store. Plus, we’re saving you a trip to the mall – a scary place this time of year. Check ’em out, and get the craft beer lover in your life what he or she really wants this year!


For the Cyclist


Gear up the cyclist on your list with an Upslope cycling or freeride jersey by Panache Cyclewear Co. Panache makes exceptional clothing and continually challenges the status quo by innovating and creating products that help cyclists ride, explore, and challenge themselves.





For the Outdoor Enthusiast



An Upslope Stainless Steel Growler is the way to go for the on-the-go, outdoor beer enthusiast. Currently available in 1 liter, this growler will keep brews cold wherever life takes the adventurer in your life.

disc golf putter Have someone on the list who’s into disc golf?

This Disc Golf Putter from Gateway Disc Sports is a sure bet. This info from our online store pretty much covers it: Their most popular disc of any kind, the Gateway Wizard™ is a true, stable workhorse putter. The Wizard holds whatever line you throw it with very little fade during its drop, and is also a great putter in windy conditions. While stiff enough to hold its line on long putts, the Wizard’s plastic is grippy enough to grab chains every time. The Wizard handles controlled power very well, thus makes an excellent choice off the tee for midrange drives, in addition to upshots. The Wizard is a very consistent and accurate disc that should find its way into your bag.


For the Upslope Fanatic


Upslope Pint Glass

You can’t lose with an Upslope hat, shirt or hoodie for a true Upslope fanatic, but a pair of Pint Glasses works best when you’re not sure of the right size to buy. For a classier vessel, go with tintackerour limited edition Five Years of Beers anniversary glass, a 16.5 oz Munique Beer Glass.


Know someone with a Man Cave that needs some sprucing up?

You’ll have a winner with an Upslope Tin Tacker. Available in two sizes (small or large), this is guaranteed to pimp out any space.
