Repping your favorite restaurant or brewery is one of the best ways to show your support for a local small business — and you can wear your love on your sleeve with these creative and stylish pieces of swag.
Mug drops at Hidden Harbor are a whole event. The tiki bar works with artists such as Bosko Hrnjak and Henrik and Denise Van Ryzin to create one-of-a-kind pieces that regularly sell out — they’ve done more than 60 mug drops since opening in 2016. Previous drops have included the popular “Suffering Banana” mug, a hand-crafted banana mug to commemorate Hidden Harbor’s sixth anniversary that sold for $185, and the ever-popular “Cobra Fang” series, which has included pilsner glasses and snifters. The best way to snag one for yourself is to follow them on Instagram (you may want to smash that notification button, too) for the latest updates.

We love a camp mug, and Cinderlands’ one (a stainless steel version from MiiR) is one of the best. The brewery’s online shop also has beanies, glasses, tees and a hand-crafted wooden bottle opener.

Grist House’s well-designed merch store is packed with everything from long-sleeved thermals to brewery-branded blankets and their much-beloved ‘Dad hat’ (available in four colors). Merch drops happen regularly, often tied to some of their biggest events, like their annual Fire Fest.
