Gift Ideas: Wine and Beer Gadgets

December 7, 2010

Today’s gift ideas are some gadgets.

For the beer drinker,  I suggest a wall mounted bottle opener with a bucket to catch the bottle caps in. I will suggest that you ensure that it is mounted into a wall stud and wall anchors such as mollies are used, as this will rip out of sheet rock after awhile. I have seen these at most homebrew supply stores.

For the wine drinker, I suggest replacement stoppers for when a wine bottle is opened. When I open a bottle of wine, I’m never sure I’m going to get the cork back in. Sometimes the cork breaks apart, and sometimes it swells up. For a dollar or two, you can get replacement rubber stoppers that will always fit in a wine bottle. For a little extra, you can get some fancier stoppers that are tapered and usually have some sort of decoration on the top, which would allow you to customize the gift, such as favorite sport teams, cute animals, charms, etc.

The best wine stopper, however, is one that keeps an open bottle of wine fresh. It is a special wine stopper that comes with a small hand held manual pump. You put the stopper in the bottle, and then attach the pump to remove air from the bottle. Once the air is gone, the wine will taste better and last longer. A pump and the two special wine stoppers usually cost less than $15.

All of these style of stoppers can be found wherever wine is sold, or in kitchen gadget stores.
