Is the Dad in your life the strong and silent type, or a softy? Maybe he’s the life of the party, or rather mellow. Whether outdoorsy, sporty or metro – Dad is the man. For the man who remembers to change the oil in the car, grill the steaks, assemble furniture without losing any pieces, and provide a shoulder to lean on – what better way to show you appreciate him this Father’s Day than with a unique case of beer delivered to him fresh from the brewery? Beerjobber has you covered for gifts of beer that every Dad will love!
Unsure how to combine Dad’s love of craft beer with the special day? The resident Dad’s at beerjobber.com (we have 4) offer the following suggestions (plus we’ve put all of the following beers on sale!):
Father’s Day “Brunch and Beer”
What man doesn’t enjoy a delicious meal with an excellent craft beer? May we suggest our Imperial Java Stout from Santa Fe Brewing Company. This beer’s heavenly flavor and aroma can’t be beat and is the perfect addition to a Father’s Day Brunch of eggs Benedict or French toast. The recommended serving glass for this beer (poured before noon) is a coffee cup!
Dining with Dad al fresco
Linger through a nice meal outside enjoying the warm weather. Honey Basil Ale from Bison Brewing is a perfect summer beer to enjoy on its own, or with a wide variety of your father’s favorite dishes (how about fried chicken, or antipasto). This organic beer is flavorful and thirst quenching at the same time. Stock up, because he’s going to want a few of these!
Bring the whole family together to celebrate with a backyard BBQ. Fire up the grill with sausages, hamburgers, shrimp or chicken kebobs, and whatever else your Dad enjoys. A fragrant, refreshing hefeweizen, such as multiple-award-winning Dry Dock Hefeweizen, pairs well with grilled-vegetables or shellfish. Smoked sausages and red meats work well with a dark, easy-to-drink altbier, such as Erie Brewing’s Heritage Alt Beer. Fowl finds its best match in a rustic, farmhouse-house style ale, like Hilliard’s Saison.
Some Other Recommendations based on Dad’s personality:
The Fisherman – Made by fishermen to be taken out on the stream, Madison River Brewery in Montana crafts a Scotch ale like no other, brewed using the finest smoked malt for flavor complexity (but not too much, making it very drinkable). This is a great beer for dad to savor while enjoying his favorite pastime.
The Adventurist- Upslope has several great brews to perfectly suited to a camping trip, rafting trip, or even an afternoon hike! The variety case gives you some of each.
The Sports Guy- A serene balance of malt and hops, Crank Yanker IPA from Eddyline is perfect for the dad who believes in “going big”. Whether he’s had a day of going big or wants a beer that can back that adrenaline-filled day, Crank Yanker IPA is the beer for him.
The Life of the Party- For the Dad who is always on top of the current trends and knows all the hot spots in town we recommend Narragansett Lager. Brewed just right for drinking-crisp and refreshing, Narragansett lager is one of the most drinkable beers in the world.
The Golfer- American Blonde by American Brewing Company is perfect for the Dad who enjoys a round of golf. This light refreshing, full-bodied blonde ale is perfect for a Dad who’s just coming off the links.
Beer-nut Dad who’s tried everything-For this type of Dad we recommend VooDoo Variety Case #1 a great pack of four amazing beers: White Magick, 4 Seasons IPA, Pilzilla, and Wynona’s Big Brown Ale. Wonderfulπ brewery tucked into central Pennsylvania with very limited distribution. Trust us, he won’t be disappointed!
