Gone Shoppin’ … Microbrews for Dad’s Day

What do you get for the man that has everything? How about a bucket of brews? What Dad doesn’t like a cold one on a hot summer evening?

After a visit to one of my favorite Main Street haunts in Concord, I decided to do just that. Even if it’s not in their name, Butter’s Fine Foods and Wines sells an interesting collection of imported and microbrews. Summerlike temperatures and Butter’s cool displays inspired me. That and the store was having a sale. I am a sucker for a sale.

Here’s what I found:

Tavern Ale from White Birch BrewingBerkshire Brewing Company’s  Traditional Ale and Peak Organic Brewing Company’s King Crimson. Next I rummaged around for an old ice bucket. It looked a little empty so I added a few bottles of hard lemonade that I found in the back of the refrigerator. A few bottles of ginger beer and hard cider would also be nice.

Now all I need to do is add some ice and a ribbon if I can find one and invite Dad to meet me at the beach for a tasting.

Happy Fathers’ Day and bon appétit!

Oh…and just so you know… although, I did buy the brews on sale, no cash or goods passed hands in return for this post. I’m just a girl who loves her dad and a bargain.
