Hey, all! It’s Father’s Day this weekend and what says love better than beer? NOTHING! We’ve got some great ideas for dear old Dad.
Bruisin’ Ales Gift Certificates: Have a fussy father? Let him pick his own bounty! Good for anything in the store—beer, tees, hats, books, glassware and more!
Splurgers of the Finest Kind:
Le Baladin Xyauyu (Italy)—One of the best barleywines we’ve ever had. Truly fantastic. Fruity, sweet and boozy, this is the perfect after-dinner beer. Serve in a snifter at room temperature. Especially sentimental, as the beer is named for brewer Teo Musso’s daughter’s imaginary friend. Awwww. [13.0% abv]
Cantillon Saint Lamvinus (Belgium)—Beer or wine? The most exclusive of the Cantillon fruit lambic line, St. Lamvinus is a lambic made with Merlot grapes aged in oak barrels. Serve at room temp in a red wine glass. For a lighter variety, try Cantillon Vigneronne, made with Muscat grapes and aged in oak. [5.0% abv]
Malheur Dark Brut (Belgium)—Sparkling beer! Skip the normal bubbly and toast to Dad with the beer world’s version of Champagne. Malty, sweet, and tart. Want a lighter version? Try the Malheur Bier Brute. [12.0% abv]
De Molen Storm & Averij (Netherlands)—A Belgian-style Imperial IPA. Big fruity hop aroma with a little yeastiness of orange peels, mango,pine-needles, peaches, hay and wet grass. Super yum. [8.0% abv]
Beerlanthropy Tees—We’re all beerlanthropists around here. Is your Dad? With a center-back small Bruisin’ Ales logo.
Brewery Tees & Baseball Caps—A wide variety from your favorite breweries.\
The Brewmaster’s Table—The original beer & food pairing book, written by Garrett Oliver, brewmaster of Brooklyn Brewery.
“Beer Y’all“—Get Dad the DVD about beer in North Carolina. Good stuff.
Beer Soap & Shampoo—Really. It’s awesome stuff.
Mix It Up:
At Bruisin’ Ales, you can make your own sixer or box of single craft beers. Perfect for the Dad who wants to try a bunch of one style or several varieties!
