Here at Chow Bella, we understand how important it is to give (and receive) the perfect foodie gift. So this season, we're helping out by offering 21 food- and drink-focused gift suggestions, one each work day until Christmas, from a local business or provider. You get scads of rock-star ideas, the dollars stay in the Valley, and we get to go shopping -- win, win, win!
2: For the Local Beer Lover: Four Peaks Gift Card
Sure there's tons of gift cards to local restaurants, but we'll leave those decisions up to you and yours. For now, we're talkin' brewskies, Santa Baby. And the next best thing to being there and buying one for your naughty or nice recipient, is a gift card from growing Valley legend and popular local brewer Four Peaks Brewing Company.
You can get them through the website, but not in time for Christmas. Better to stop in one of their two locations instead. Maybe you'll even have to have a beer while you're there. Poor you.
