beer tasting for Dad + giveaway

beer tasting for Dad + giveaway

Give dad something he will truly enjoy for Father’s Day this year, beer! A beer tasting gift is both thoughtful and easy to put together. Adding photo labels from Pinhole Press with cute a snapshot of the kids will make the gesture extra special.

To give a great beer tasting gift pack, pick out a selection of different brews. A local brewery is a great place to start or a craft beer store will have a fun selection as well. Try to pick out bottles he would love but not normally buy for himself. Soak the bottles in warm water to release the labels. I saved all my labels by laying them on sheets of paper so Matt could connect the tab to the actual brew. On the papers I wrote a quick sentence as to why I picked that specific brew. Some were special to us and others just looked fun to drink. Replace the label with photos of the family and pack up in a simple box for delivery.

To help you make your own Father’s Day beer (or root beer) gift pack. Pinhole Press is giving away $50 gift card this week! Check out their site and let me know what your favorite Father’s Day photo idea is (so many great ones!). Leave a comment below to win.

    My favorite photo gift idea for fathers day (and one im already in the process od doing is having our little girl hold the letters D-A-D in three seperate pictures and then collaging them into the word in a 3 photo frame. I think its a cute way to remember how little she is now when we look back later on =)

    My dad is a mining engineer, who believe the free notepads and calenders from the vendors at work are the height of cool. While I’ve been considering giving him an insulated mug with family photos on it, since he would actually use that, Pinhole Press’s journals are making me lean towards a photo journal to encourage him to write his life’s story. The past year or so has been pretty momentous in our family, and it’s making me realize how important it is to have these things written down for future generations.

    While we didn’t do custom labels on the beer, we just had a beer party for my husbands birthday. It was a lovely way to share types of beer that you might not ordinarily buy.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I was completely stumped on what to give my husband for his very first Father’s Day. His birthday is the week before and I went all out on that gift…so, his father gift needed to be much more affordable. The beer tasting ideas is PERFECT for him (he even has a beer blog.) Pretty sure the beer bottle label is the route I’d have to go!
