Gifts for Dad

Your dad has enough ties and tools. Get him what he really wants the year… something good to drink and some peace. We’ve picked out our favorite brews, wines, and spirits for dear ol’ dad to help you out:

If dad’s a beer dude, we have the largest and best selection of craft beer including an entire isle dedicated to local brews. A few of our local favorites are:

Edmund’s Oast Bound By Time IPA

This oat-infused olfactory explosion of a beer bursts at the seams with aromas of freshly cut cantaloupe and naval orange. Made with good old-fashioned hop-bursting techniques and irresponsible dry-hopping technology, Bound by Time is an offering to those looking for something brimming with hop character and as unadulterated as a butterfly’s wing.

Fatty’s Beer Works Robobeer

Not only does this beer have one of the coolest cans ever, its delicious and perfect for summer too! This Helles Lager is crisp, clean, and super refreshing. With a moderate 5.0% ABV, its a perfect 6pk for dad to throw in the cooler.

Westbrook Citrus Redacted DIPA

A sneaky hazy double IPA brewed with tangerine and dry-hopped with almost 7 lbs/barrel of citrusy hops. Watch out though, this 8.5% ABV drinks like a 5.0%. Crisp, hoppy, refreshing, and bursting with citrus aromas and flavors.

 

 

Everyone knows mom loves a glass of wine at the end of the day, but lots of dads do too! Whether dads a red drinker, likes a crisp, dry white, or even something bubbly, we’ve got you covered. Three of our favorite bottles for dad are:

Orin Swift Locations: NZ

In the glass, a brilliant pale yellow reminiscent of white currants; the wine opens with an intense bouquet of gooseberries, feijoas, and ripe tropical fruits. The bright entry of fresh cut grass and preserved lemon lead to passionfruit pot de crème showcasing a long finish of fresh herbs and clean minerality.

Red Schooner

This Malbec is made from grapes grown in the Andes Mountains, shipped chilled to Napa Valley and produced with the same techniques as our Caymus Cabernet. Falling outside standard labeling rules, it does not include a vintage date but is known by the voyage from which it traveled. Offering scents of ripe plums and cherries, this wine is powerful and supple, with flavors of French oak and soft tannins.

Torii Mor Pinot Noir- Bottles Limited Edition

Sitting at 800 feet elevation and planted in 1972, Olsen Vineyard is heralded as one of the oldest vineyard sites in the Willamette Valley. A partnership between Torii Mor and Bottles, this bottling utilizes fruit sourced from the oldest part of the vineyard to create the most elegant and magical expression of Pinot Noir coming from Oregon today. This is a limited release with only 50 cases produced and is encouraged to be enjoyed with the best of company. 

 

We’re guessing you’ve partaken of dad’s bar more than once or twice in your lifetime, so now it’s time to return the favor and stock him up! We’ve got all dad’s favorite spirits whether it’s scotch, bourbon, gin, or even a smooth tequila or smokey mezcal. Here are a few of our favorite spirits for dad:

Macallan 12 Year

The Macallan Sherry Oak 12 Years Old forms part of our Sherry Oak range which features a series of single malt whiskies matured exclusively in hand-picked sherry seasoned oak casks from Jerez for richness and complexity. A matured character, the 12 Years Old delivers rich wood spice and dried fruits and a natural rich gold colour.

Ilegal Mezcal Joven

Full bodied agave flavor. Light smoke, lingering heat. Ideal for cocktails or perfect on its own. Un-aged. Eucalyptus and mineral aromas compliment hints of green apple, fresh citrus, and red chiltepe.Our practices reflect our commitment to sustainability and biodiversity in the Oaxaca region. 100% natural, Ilegal uses no artificial colors, yeasts, flavors, or additives. Just agave, sun, and time.

Second Glance Bourbon

The first impression is rich and bold with aromas of maple wood, cardamom, buttery toast and black cherries. Impressive intensity on the palate with a plethora of honey, caramel, hazelnut and baked dark fruits. The finish is layered and complex.
