Kristi came up with this idea for a groomsmen gift, but it works really, really well for the holidays as well, when all are eating, drinking, and making merry. Fill it with local beer, and it's a personal, affordable, and reusable present.



  1. Using the stencils and tape, create your pattern and spell out the giftee's name on the glass growler bottle.
  2. Per instructions, apply etching cream to the areas left exposed by the stencils.
  3. Let sit for 15 minutes. Then, rinse with water.
