Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.Father's Day is a celebration of the unconditional love our father gives us and the effort he takes in providing for the family and raising kids. Celebrated on the third Sunday of every June, this day was inspired by Mother's Day celebration. There are various stories around how this day was initiated. However, the common element in all these stories is that, it is a day which honors a father's contribution in our lives.
~ Benjamin Franklin
To celebrate Father's Day this year, go a little beyond those clichéd greeting cards, bouquets, and cufflinks which only add to the clutter in the closet. How about surprising your father this year with beer-related gifts? If he is a complete teetotaler, then we have a few surprises for him too.
While the below listed are beer-related merchandise, there are few more ways of celebrating this theme. For instance, you can surprise your dad with a beer and barbecue party with the entire family, or you can go fishing with your father with a crate full of his favorite beer. Think a little outside the box to make this Father's Day unique. So, without further ado, here are some of the greatest beer-related gifts for Father's Day to convey your love and affection.
Gift him a beer brewing kit to brew his own beer. The kit is all that your father will need to make some good beer at home. In fact, making beer can be a joint activity for the whole family. The kit will include a cook pot, grain, hops, yeast, and a few flavors for your first homemade brew.
Every spirits connoisseur loves a good collection of glasses to serve his drinks. Add to your father's collection with well crafted beer glasses, a good textured wooden tray and beer containers. Beer containers range from shot glasses to big beer tubes. With such a wide variety, there is a huge scope for choice. And if you really want to make it special, you can get these personalized too!
These are not only useful items in the bar, but are also interesting accessories. With ones that are embedded in footwear, belts, in cell phone covers and other unthinkable places, find a bottle opener that's really unusual. A belt buckle with an opener can be an excellent addition to the wardrobe and a lucrative gift for beer lovers. But be careful now, the more bottles you open, the tighter the belt will be around the waist!
Treat your father to a month's subscription of a beer club. Or better still, extend it to his birthday or the next Father's Day. Several microbreweries offer such subscriptions. You can make it even more specific by buying a subscription for his favorite beer like an ale, lager, bitters, dry stouts and so on.
A collection of beer recipes would perfectly compliments the beer brewing kit you plan to gift your dad. Additionally, the collection of recipes will also serve as tips for cooking with beer. It certainly would be a delight to munch on those beer-simmered sausages, while sipping some cool beer on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
A really handy beer-related gift would be a good beer dispenser for the bar. This is available in several sizes and shapes. For instance, a tower with light, funky shapes and other such interesting designs. This definitely can be a great beer-related Father's Day gift.
There are several magazines dedicated to aspects such as beer making, beer festivals around the world, beer serving accessories and so on. A subscription of these magazine will open a world of new ideas for your father.
