Dad (bod) worthy
Father’s Day is coming in hot next week (Sunday, June 16!). Instead of opting for a somewhat-funny-yet-totally-tacky card, we’ve got the next best thing. Or THE best thing if you ask us: damn.good.beer. We’re feeding into the dad bod craze (#guilty) and suggesting a few of our favorite beers so he can sit back and sip all day long on real dad-worthy beers. And we think you should suggest these, too!
We’ve rounded up a few uber crushable beers for dad and the whole fam. From a crisp Pils to a Gose cider. Keep reading below to find out we think dad should be drinking all.weekend.long in honor of him (of course).
Father’s Day sippers
Fiddlehead Second Fiddle | An extensively dry-hopped 8.2% ABV double IPA. It’s big, juicy and aromatic. Citrus, Tropical, Pine | The perfect beer for a Father’s Day log cabin weekend getaway alongside lotssss of nature.
Graft Salt & Sand | A Mezcal Margarita Cider with lemon zest, lime zest & smoked sea salt. A 6.9% ABV cider that’s gluten free and has 0g sugar so guilt free, basically | Consider this the perfect poolside-sipper for the whole fam. Just add a ridiculously giant pool float and lounge around alllll day with dad.
Proclamation Derivative: Citra | A single-hopped 6% ABV pale ale with notes of mixed citrus, pineapple, dank, earthy & stanky | A Father’s Day beach day calls for a drinkable pale ale like Citra.
SingleCut 18-Watt IPA | Orange zest, pine resin and tropical lupulin beauty that easily rivals much bigger IPAs, with a substantially full, soft malt body that complements but doesn’t interfere with the hop attack. When you want the push, weight, and attack of a much heavier (I)IPA but need to be productive tomorrow. A 5% ABV IPA | This one’s for the dad who likes to equally crush IPAs and work. Team no-sleep.
Finback Telephone Lines Pilsner | A 5.2% ABV Pilsner, dry hopped with Citra. Crisp, smooth Pilsner with subtle citrus hop character | Outdoor BBQ for Father’s Day weekend? He’ll love sipping on this crisp, smooth Pils while he’s manning the grill or lounging.
Fore River Preble, Raspberry | A 4% Sour. Mixed fermentation ale conditioned with raspberries | This sour is hard to get your hands on so snagging it for dad will be a gift in itself. It goes down eaaaaaaasy (like a Father’s Day Sunday morning…?).
