Still scratching your head, thinking about what you want to buy Dad for Father’s Day with less than 36 hours to go (at time of publishing)? It is easy: a Rare Beer Club membership.
The Rare Beer Club:
Let’s say that you order today (Friday, 6/15), today being the last day that you can order Hair of the Dog Flanders Fred and De Molen Zomerhop.
You tell your Dad you bought him a membership but to wait until you come over in a month to drink one of the beers with you. A month or so from now, you go over to your father’s house and open Flanders Fred. He goes, “What’s this?” You say, “It’s damn good beer, Dad.” Your father may be more used to a light lager and has never a tart beer like this. “This ain’t beer!” “Well, if you don’t want the bottles, I’ll take them.” “Take ‘em!”
Isn’t the scenario in which you end up effectively buying a gift for yourself, the best one?
Joking aside, you have hopefully had some part in converting your father’s beer drinking palate already and know that he will like these beers. And if you think he does, all the info on the club is right here.
But if his palate isn’t quite as adventurous as yours, there are alternatives to the Rare Beer Club that suit a more traditional beer drinker…
