All those lovey-dovey holiday commercials making you feel guilty about your Christmas shopping procrastination? Don't. According to a survey from the National Retail Federation, only about 11 percent of shoppers had finished up their gift list by December 13. So, everyone's doing it. (Or not doing it, as the case may be.)
If you've got a special beer geek, craft brew nerd, or hops lover on your list, consider yourself lucky. Buying for a fan of beer can be as easy as a gift certificate to Total Wine (or Funky Buddha, Due South, etc.) or a case of tasty brew. For something just a bit more personal, check out the Clean Plate Charlie beer geek gift guide after the jump. Cheers!
