    We're very light on BeerAdvocate merch right now, but I'd love to drop some new merch each quarter of 2024. And, instead of guessing what everyone might be interested in, I'd love to hear form all of you.

    So, what kind of BA merch would you like to see/buy?

    More tees? Hoodies? Hats? Glassware? Bottle openers? Specific brands/designs? Better support for orders outside of the US?

    Let me know!

    If you do hoodies/T-shirts, please consider adding tall sizes to the mix. If you do stemless bulbs like the one below, I'll buy several.

    A challenge coin with color denoting and encouraging multiple levels of achievement or membership;
    • Beer Advocate (bronze)
    • Pooh-Bah (red)
    • Society members (yellow)
    • Trader (blue)
    • Staff (black)
    • Mod/admin (green)
    • Notable event or site/member anniversary (bronze)
    Search on 'olight challenge coin' for examples.

    These are typically 2" in diameter, made of bronze, and can have custom text and/or colored areas to denote the level. Several companies custom design and produce these. These would be purchasable only as you qualify.

    Athletic material shirts would be a huge one for me. Think Columbia-esque long sleeve crew neck fishing shirts material

    I would love a 17.5 ounce brandy snifter BA glass like this? Love the larger style.

    I'd love a glass of any design and being able to get it in the UK. I'd take a t-shirt as well.

    Second on the large snifter. Ive got a vintage Rapscallion one that holds about 21 oz. I drink all bigger ABV beers out of it. 16oz can easily fits

    Glassware, coasters, and humorous beer shirts are always good.
    Could something be made using the data on here? Like a poster with the beers of fame or a map with the top rated American barleywines? Idk if that gets into copyright issues or not

    Glassware for sure.

    I’d also be interested in a bottle opener that can cut through the wax you find on lots of barrel aged beers. Got a million regular openers but that would definitely get some use.

    Glassware, yes. I could use a tulip glass.
    A Society t-shirt. So my wife can say , "Really, another t-shirt?"

    I'd happily advertise this website on my chest, providing your t-shirts come in medium size, and they're not all black!

    Anything but a Teku those things are awful.
    Stemless bulb with nice font would be nice.
    6oz to me is preference cuz i enjoy multiple pours from bogger bottles but im not choosy.

    challenge coin would be weird, but i know people would go apeshit. what's to keep a non poobutt from lying and buying one? keeping track seems complicated and unnecessary.

    A legit bottle openebartender style . Maybe one to cut through wax for the older and feeble crowd:stuck_out_tongue:
