If you're resigned to giving a belated gift for the holidays and wish to shop local, here's a unique item I just discovered: beer soap.
Visit Lotion Bar Cafe and check out the three soap options made from Bristol Brewery's Laughing Lab, Beehive and Winter Warlock varieties.
Lotion Bar Cafe adds honey to the Beehive, ground oats and vanilla to the Warlock and apricot seeds to the Lab.
Bars cost $5 and even the toughest and most manly of men would probably use a homemade froofy soap if he knew there was beer inside. ("Hey Earl — smell my pits, man ... wanna hit happy hour?")
Lotion Bar Cafe can also be found during summer months at the Colorado Farm & Art Market.
