Unique Christmas Gift Idea: Grain Belt “Kangaroo” Hoodie

Christmas is only five days away (!) and I’m sure some of you out there still haven’t bought presents and don’t know what to get. Much like Jerod has done this year and last year, I have found a unique and very useful gift to give.

I present to you, the Grain Belt “Kangaroo” Hoodie.

This sweatshirt combines some of my favorite things in the world.

First of all, it is a hoodie. Find me a college-aged person who doesn’t wear hooded sweatshirts, and I will show you the weirdest person in the world.

Second of all, it has a built-in coozie for your beer! How awesome is that? I drink beer as often as possible, which means I usually have to either tweet with one hand or put my beer down, neither of which are things I want to do. Now with the kangaroo pouch, I can have both hands free AND have my beer safely near my body. Brilliant!

Thirdly, this sweatshirt is made by Grain Belt, one of my favorite beers. Grain Belt, the Friendly Beer, is made in New Ulm, Minnesota. It was my go-to choice of beer for quite a few years before I discovered microbrews. I still go back to Grain Belt every once in a while, and it is always a good choice.

I’m making a last final push to my mother to get me this sweatshirt for Christmas. If that doesn’t work, I’m going to start accepting donations so I can buy it for myself. I urge you all to do the same.

In no way is Grain Belt a sponsor of this website, nor do I receive anything for posting this except for the satisfaction of giving a great recommendation. Grain Belt is just a beer I enjoy and this is a really badass sweatshirt that everyone should own. But if you aren’t going to buy the sweatshirt, at least drink a Grain Belt this holiday season.
