Father’s Day Gift Ideas for the Dad that Loves Craft Beer

Father’s Day is nearly here. Dad isn’t always easy to buy for. And let’s face it, he only needs so many ties. Luckily your father likes beer. We have some great gift ideas for the dad that loves craft beer.

1. Get Dad a Growler from NorthGate Brewing

Growler fills at NorthGate Brewing are just $10 Father’s Day weekend. We recommend the Twice Told IIPA. It’s the biggest bang for your beer buying buck, just make sure to watch Pops around the BBQ.

2. Hayes’ Public House Indiegogo Rewards

Hayes’ Public House is expanding and using Indiegogo to raise some of the funds. There are lots of packages to choose from. The rewards range from posters to bottles, to brewer for a day, and beyond.

3. Father’S Day All-You-Can-Eat BBQ Buffet in the Surly Brewing Beer Garden
