50 Days of Holiday Gifts: The Beer Gear

If people can dress up their dogs in sweaters, why not their beers? The Sun King Freaker, custom-made for the brewery, is one-size-fits-all knitwear for pints, cans, bottles, and even 64-oz. growlers. This cozy sleeve actually keeps Wee Mac cold, too—it’s an insulator. If you try to slip the sweater on yourself, though, you’ve had one too many. $10. Sun King Brewery, 135 N. College Ave., 317-602-3702, sunkingbrewing.com.
