For example, if you like the taste of toasted caramel try Punkin Ale by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, if you like bananas try Hefeweizen by Live Oak Brewing, and so on. Great American Craft Beers also offers advice on food pairings as well as where to travel to find the best beer. For the beer lover on your list this is a must buy, but set some money aside to buy them some beer, as well.
