“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.”
— Jim Valvano

He’s dad, pops, papa. While he may not win any awards for his ability to hold a long phone conversation, he could totally win something for his overall awesomeness as a dad. Maybe he’s the dad who spent every weekend on the field with you, coaching you and cheering you on. Perhaps he’s the father figure who taught you how to fish or the dad who introduced you to a world of incredible music. Either way, he probably knows how to make you laugh like no one else, and can also drop the sagest advice at just the right time. If you’re a parent now yourself, you know just how much Dad put up with over the years, and now it’s your turn to thank him for all he’s done with a unique Father’s Day gift.

Though it only became an official holiday in 1972, the annual celebration of Father’s Day in the U.S.—which takes place on the third Sunday in June—was born in Spokane, Washington, long before that. In 1910, to be exact, when Sonora Smart Dodd, one of six children raised by a widower, set out to establish an official equivalent to Mother’s Day for male parents.

Around the world, Father’s Day festivities occur throughout the year, like the second Sunday of August in Brazil, where St. Joachim, the father of Mary, is said to be the inspiration for the holiday. In Thailand, it’s celebrated on the December birthday of the widely admired King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Everyone wears yellow to commemorate the day. And in Germany, on Ascension Day, a tradition is honored celebrating fathers by organizing hikes and other gatherings—and supplying the men with a hefty stock of food and alcohol.

And though American Father’s Day customs center on showering Dad with gifts, that wasn’t always a welcomed tradition. In fact, pushback against the custom of gift-giving is one of the primary reasons why Father’s Day wasn’t declared a national holiday until the 1970s.

Times have changed—this year, that has never rung more true—but there’s still no better time to butter up your favorite guy with something a little more substantial than pancakes, especially if you won’t be able to gather in person. He’ll flip for a shiny new copper grill, hand-crafted gin, and a cozy alpaca throw for lazy Sundays. Read on for more of our gift ideas for the father figures in your life.

GrowlerWerks uKeg Carbonated Growler, 64 oz, Stainless Steel

GrowlerWerks was born to deliver cold, fresh (and delicious) draft beverages at-home or on-the-go. It all began with a flat beer…at the absolute worst time and place. And on that fateful day, our mission was born. Make a growler that actually worked. You see, craft beer was (and is) too expensive, and rare, and delicious to see it poured down the drain.

  • CARBONATION CAP – automatically regulates pressure to optimally carbonate beer. Choose desired carbonation level, from zero (off) up to 15 psi.
  • VESSEL- durable, double-wall Vacuum-insulated Stainless Steel.
  • PRESSURE GAUGE – easily read the pressure inside the growler.
  • DISPENSER TAP – easily pours beer any time, without removing cap. Plus tap lock to prevent dispensing.
  • INTERCHANGEABLE TAP HANDLE – handle can be changed to personalize or represent your favorite Brewery.
  • SIGHT GLASS – shows contents of uKeg and how much is left.
  • CO2 CARTRIDGE – uses low cost, food-grade Co2 cartridges.
  • Included Components: two CO2 cartridges
