BBQ-Focused Gift Baskets
The Mini-BBQ Bash Barbecue Gift
As the name suggests, this gift basket would be perfect for any man who loves to barbecue. It comes with jerky, smoker planks, barbecue sauce, mini pretzels and beef jerky. What’s not to love? The 5 bottles of Bud Light mightn’t be the most unique beer choice, but they’d still be popular.
The World’s Best Barbecuing Gift Basket, With Beer
Here’s another gift basket for barbecue fans. This one comes with a full set of barbecue tools, along with sauce, spices and related products – not to mention the beer. The barbecue tools are a particularly nice touch. They mean that there is something left over once the food has been eaten and the beer has been enjoyed.
Snacks and Beer
Givens and Company California Craft Beer Fest
This Craft Beer Fest basket has been featured on various sites under different names. The snacks are simple, just tortilla chips and salsa – placing the focus firmly on the beer.

If you’re looking for a themed present, this New York Craft Beer Gift Basket is hard to pass by. It offers 6 different beers, all brewed in New York. Pretzels and mustard dip are included as snacks. The color choice makes it visually appealing, while the basket won’t break your budget either.

The Ultimate Beer Lover Gift for Men
Here’s another gift that is all about the beer. This time, it includes 12 different beers. These include 3 individual variety packs of 4 beers, each from different breweries. Because the set is sold by the BroBasket brand, you can request specific breweries to be included.
Lord Nut Peanut Assortment With Beer
Unlike most of the other baskets, this gift focuses on the snacks first and foremost. It includes 6 different 8-oz flavors of Lord Nut peanuts, many of which are highly unusual. There are also 2 craft beers. These round off the whole collection nicely.
Premium Craft Bouquet
While this is called a bouquet, you’re actually getting a beer crate. It contains 6 different large bottles of beer in an appealing crate. The beers are all larger than average, typically from 16.9 oz to 22 oz. There is also a focus on rare and award-winning beer. Finally, the box does contain a sweet snack (a sea salt hazelnut crunch bar) and a savory one (gourmet meat sticks).
Baskets With Plenty Of Snacks
Kick Back and Relax Beer Basket
The idea of kicking back and relaxing is often linked to beer, which is what makes this particular basket so great.

Guinness Greatness Gift Basket
With 12 bottles of Guinness, this gift basket certainly stands out. There’s no shortage of snacks either. The basket includes salsa, tortilla chips, almonds, nuts, pretzels and cheesy bites. The beer selection mightn’t be diverse, but hey, at least you know that the beer will be well-received.
The Microbrewery Basket
Microbreweries all offer their own distinct brews, making baskets like this one especially appealing. There are 12 different beers present, each from a microbrewery in the United States. Various snacks are included to round out the mix, making this a gift that most men would love to receive.
Yuengling Beer Basket
As the name suggests, the four beers in this gift tub all come from Yuengling brewery. The inclusion of jerky and a hot and spicy pickle make the gift especially interesting. There are other snacks too. To jazz it up even more, the gift does come with the pictured steel tub. Add some ice and it could be a way to chill beer at a party.
The Massive Beer Gift Crate
If you’re going to give beer, why not go all out? With this beer crate, you’re getting 24 bottles of beer from various breweries, not to mention a decent selection of snacks. The presentation is impressive too. Some of the items are arranged in a sturdy crate with rope handles, while others are in a wooden half barrel.
Bucket of Microbrews
This is another basket that offers 6 different beers, along with various snacks. Some of those snacks are a little unusual, like the sourdough nuggets and zesty cheese sticks. The presentation works well too, as the steel bucket can be used again once the beer is all gone.
Microbrew Beer Bucket Gift Basket
This microbrew bucket is fantastic, simply because of how different it is. This time, all of the beers are in cans, not bottles. The beers are always the same, so you know exactly what you’ll receive. The snacks include plenty of popcorn, along with a snack mix and nuts. They’re bound to get devoured quickly.
Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout Deluxe Bouquet
Beer bouquets are a cool concept and this one focuses on Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout. The bouquet is visually stunning. Plus, you know exactly what beer you’re getting ahead of time. The choice of snacks works well too. This includes garlic summer sausage, blonde ale caramel corn, crackers and some chips.
Beer Bonanza Gift Basket
This gift basket isn’t as elegant as some of the others on this list, but that doesn’t make it any less appealing. The basket features 5 individual beers, along with a decent selection of snacks, like salami, popcorn and smoked cheese. The individual brands won’t always be the same, which simply adds to the surprise.
Hop Valley Citrus Mistress Deluxe Bouquet
Here’s another beer bouquet. It’s themed around Hop Valley Citrus Mistress beer, which explains the color theme and choice of snacks. This brand doesn’t substitute ingredients. You should always get the exact snacks that are shown in the image (and not any low-quality alternatives).
Beer And Cheese Gift Basket
This basket combines beer, cheese and salami, along with a few other snacks. It’s a great choice if you want satisfying food to go with the beer, rather than just light snacks. Two of the beers come in bottles, while the others are cans, giving you more variety than normal.
Get The Party Started Gift Basket
Calling this a Get The Party Started Basket just makes sense. The gift basket includes 6 different craft beers, 2 bottles of wine and a decent selection of snacks. It’s also relatively inexpensive for the amount included in the gift. Just be aware that you don’t get to pick the wine or the beer.
Drink Up Because It’s Ireland Somewhere
It’s not hard to guess the theme of this basket. The beer crate is a simple one, containing 6 bottles of Guinness Draught and 6 bottles of Harp Lager. The ‘Drink Up Because It’s Ireland Somewhere’ plague is also included. While the gift may be on the simple side, it still looks great visually.

Beer & Beef Jerky Gift Basket
It’s easy to see how this gift basket would be popular. It includes 6 cans of beer (3 of each type), along with plenty of jerky in various flavors and some popcorn for good measure. That’s not even all. The box also contains coasters, a pint glass and beer cozies. You can’t go wrong with it.
Crate Full Of Macho Munchies With Beer
This is one of the few beer crates that focuses on the snacks more than the beer. There are only 2 bottles of beer included this time, but don’t let that put you off. The snack selection more than makes up for it, including jerky, almonds, peanuts, popcorn and even trail mix.
Sports and Racing
NFL Tailgate Bucket of Beer
This NFL Tailgate Bucket is the ideal gift for any NFL fan. Don’t worry if they don’t support the Raiders, you get to pick which team is featured on the bucket and the glasses.

Big Game Day Basket
Speaking of game day, check out this basket. There are only 2 beers included and a there is a much stronger focus on snacks and football. Even some of the food follows that theme, like chocolate shaped footballs and pasta in the same shape. The included snacks would combine with the beer and with game day.

Here’s a fun gift to try. This Half Yard of Beer BroCrate includes the half yard glass and holder, along with the beer needed to fill it.

The style of this Skeleton Fiesta gift is just too cool. It contains 2 craft beers and plenty of snacks to go along with them.
