It’s time once again to celebrate Dads. To help with that, I have put together my Craft Beer Lovers Gift Guide. Father’s Day changed for me a little over two and a half years ago when my son was born. After a bit of a scare and an emergency C-section, I got to hold my son for the first time skin-to-skin. That was the moment my heart grew twice its size! I told my baby boy all about what he meant to me and the things he had to look forward to. That moment in time meant the world to me and brings tears to my eyes as I reminisce on it. Today as I look at an almost three-year-old, I wonder where the time has gone. Another blink and I’ll be teaching him to drive. I cherish the time I have with my son and sincerely hope our relationship only grows stronger as the years go by. I had no clue I could ever love as much as I love him.
My hope is that all you Craft Daddy’s have a great Father’s Day and to help with that, here, in no particular order, are 20 craft beer related items that are sure to please any craft beer fan.

The Beer of the Month Club is the top of the line when it comes to beer clubs. I have been a member of the Rare Beer Club in the past, which is their most exclusive club. Not only are you getting your hands on 750ml bottles that aren’t available to you, but you also have the choice of switching to a previously released beer if you don’t care for the style being released that month.
2 – Beer Cap Maps
The Beer Cap Map is the perfect item to spruce up your man cave. You can choose your state and even your country. The pictures look cool on the website, but you’ll be blown away by how badass they look in person. The attention to detail for each map is second to none.
If you are anything like me, your beer fridge is boring and in need of a makeover. Best Appliance Skins offer magnetic covers for your fridge that give it a whole new life without damaging it. My beer fridge was the last thing in my man cave to need a touch of style and the magnetic skin from Best Appliance Skins did just that!
4 – Glassware
If Dad appreciates fine glassware while sipping on his craft beer then it doesn’t get much better than Spiegelau. They are German engineered with high-quality crystal to help enhance the flavor and aroma of the beer.
5 – Custom Pint Glass
Even the craft beer aficionado still falls back on old faithful. The pint glass is a perfect go to when you don’t want to break out the fine crystal. My wife had a set of pint glasses personalized for me a few years back and they are still my go-to for everyday drinking.
6 – Craft Beer Mug
I love this mug and purchased one for myself. It lets everyone at the office know your love for craft beer and makes a great conversation piece.
7 – Craft Beer Sign
Every man cave needs a beer sign or two. If you’re feeling crafty these signs can be made at home, but sometimes it’s just easier to make the purchase.
Let everyone at the barbecue know who the real Craft Daddy is.
Here’s another piece for the man cave motif. Personalized with the year the man in your life became known as Dad!
This is one of those gifts that will always make Dad smile when he looks down at his keys.
12 – Custom Craft Beer Growlers
What better way to show off his love for craft beer than a personalized growler.
13 – Craft Beer T-shirts
There are some really funny craft beer shirts out there. Here are a few specifically for Daddy.
14 – Socks
If you’re going to get Dad socks, at least get him craft beer socks!
I have yet to purchase a YOpener for myself, but I have seen them in action a number of times. They are one of the coolest bottle openers available. They are handmade from used bourbon and wine barrels. The YOpener preserves the bottle cap so you can add it to your Beer Cap Map and has a serrated edge to help with dispatching the wax from your next whale.
My wife got me a bar of this craft beer soap from Southside Soap Studio and boy does it smell deee-licious!
If your Dad likes to have a keg of craft beer on hand then get him a Kegerator. This one comes highly rated and would be perfect for the man cave. I typically drink a variety of bottled craft beers so a Kegerator isn’t #1 on my list, but it would still be a nice addition to my man cave especially when entertaining.
19 – Craft Beer Books
Whether Dad is a newbie to craft beer, a homebrewer, loves to cook with beer, or is just looking for a good read there are books about craft beer that cover the spectrum.
20 – Beer Wars
This is a great documentary about the craft beer industry and the ongoing fight breweries face against the beer giants. It’s a must watch for any craft beer fan!
