The Bro Basket

THE BRO BASKET (various styles)

At first impressions, the BroBasket seems like a great idea: themed gift baskets for men (though these would also appeal to women). If you peruse their website, they do offer a wide variety of concepts and themes — based on spirits, beer, holidays, sports, corporate gifts, and so on — with price ranges from $30 up to $190.

We ordered the Cali Craft sampler basket ($49.95) and in our box we found four varieties of Firestone Walker beers (including a Luponic Distortion that was at the end of its 90-day drinking cycle), small bags of pretzels and chips, some Popcornopolis kettle popcorn, two beer koozies (does anybody use those anymore?), and a hefty bottle opener. 

The coolest part, and what made this basket worthwhile, was the addition of a solid wooden tasting paddle and four six-ounce glasses. Worth fifty bucks? Your call.
