Read This

Keep Dad busy by having him craft his favorite type of beer with his own hands thanks to John Palmer’s highly anticipated fourth edition of his How to Brew: Everything You Need to Know to Brew Great Beer Every Time series. Breaking down everything concisely from what ingredients to use, to equipment, water treatment, recipes, techniques and style perfection, this book has everything necessary for awesome homemade ales and lagers. Keep in mind Brewers Publications has a plethora of other great books to choose from regarding the suds.

Hit the Road

Take Pops to Carmel Valley Ranch and chillax. Northern California is already beautiful, but when a gorgeous resort-like the 500-acre Carmel Valley Ranch is perfectly situated in the Santa Lucia Mountains to provide jaw-dropping views of vineyards, forests, and a golf course, Dad’s smile will be permanent once the trip is booked. Add the impeccable service, spacious suites with up to four bedrooms, roaring fireplaces, outdoor bathtubs, the Spa Aiyana, and an equestrian center, and this ranch leaves virtually nothing to be desired.

Sip It

If you know a father who is a Hennessy advocate, we suggest getting the esteemed Hennessy V.S.O.P. Privilege, which they boast as the “world’s first, and favorite V.S.O.P Cognac.” Have him confirm it with every sip. As an added plus, accompany this complex Cognac with the fun read, Hennessy: A Toast to the World’s Preeminent Spirit, written by Glenn O’Brien and brilliantly illustrated by Jean-Philippe Delhomme. Now all this dad would need is a roaring fireplace and mink rug. (A glass is optional.) At your favorite bottle shop.

Kick It

Somehow figure out what Dad’s foot size is and surprise him with a pair of hand-crafted boots, shoes, or head-turning kicks sold by America’s pride and joy for feet, FRYE. Owners swear anything they make lasts forever regardless of what you select. And in case Pops is super picky, get him a gift card. Whatever you decide, he will ultimately step his shoe game waaaaay up!

Brush Off

100% Biodegradable: Made with eco-friendly bamboo, this bold brush offers a non-slip surface and sleek, sustainable design. With a guarantee to last you just as long as any mass produced, plastic toothbrush, Humble Brush is the right decision for your teeth and gums/oral health as well as the planet. Every toothbrush sold helps children in need participate in a comprehensive preventive oral care program run by the Humble Smile Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to oral health outreach projects for children who live in the world’s most vulnerable areas.

Grill It

If you know someone who loves to grill–and have a cool beverage while they’re doing it, this gift package has it all. Three grilling sauces from Fischer & Wieser of Fredricksburg, Texas–The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce®, Smokehouse Bacon & Chipotle Sauce and Texas Pit BBQ Sauce–headline this package. Also, a Fire Wire® Skewer set for marinating (you can even do this in a zip-sealing bag the night before) and easy grilling of small items, a meat thermometer to ensure meats are done to perfection and a basting brush to get just the right amount of sauce on it all. Once the galvanized bucket is empty, just fill it with ice and chill some beverage–then fire up that grill.
