The men in my life all have a great appreciation for beer, though their palates range in sophistication from Homer Simpson to George Clooney. Here, some Father’s Day gift ideas to satisfy them all:
Heineken’s BeerTender, an all-in-one home draught beer machine, was designed by Krups and could easily pass as a sleek espresso machine. It’s compact enough to fit on a countertop, and an LCD flashes updates on beer level and freshness.
Alessi’s new, supersleek, design-driven Pop-Up bottle opener is worth leaving on the table.
Spiegelau’s gorgeous new line of Beer Classics glasses complement the aroma, taste and finish of beers ranging in style from English Strong Ales to German wheat beers.
For the Frank the Tank in your life (everyone has one), order a portable, life-size blow-up English Pub — it’s the grown-up equivalent of the blow-up bouncy castles you played in as a kid.
Redlands, California–based craft brewery Hangar 24 makes a citrusy pale ale and a tart orange wheat beer that can be ordered in genius two-liter growlers — they are imported from Germany and have been designed with a functional aluminum-alloy handle and stainless steel straps. Splurge and spend an extra $40 on a tap can that transforms the growler into a two-liter keg.
