Father’s Day with Best of British Beer
It’s time to think about Mr H. As Father’s Day is fast approaching I wanted to share a little post about a brand we are working with that offer’s gorgeous gifts for the Dad’s in our lives that love to drink beer. I’ve organised similar boxes for Grandad but never thought of doing so for Mr H. I’m not sure why really as when it comes to beer he loves a cold one and over the last couple of years has enjoyed sampling many a craft beer.
Actually I know why, it’s because I don’t really know what I’m looking for. When I’ve tried an online site before or walked into a shop I feel a little lost or receive ones that he hasn’t enjoyed. Which just felt like a waste. And so when we had the opportunity to work with the team at Best of British Beer I knew it would be the perfect collaboration. They offer a tailored and really personal approach. They are happy to work together and love to talk beer, between us we picked out the perfect selection and so far he has enjoyed all of them. I even managed to sample a couple myself which I have to say were not only pretty on the outside but tasted great too.
A little bit about the Best of British Beer team
The Best of British Beer was created by husband and wife Will and Gill back in 2011. Their focus was to help wave the flag for this country’s finest independent producers of quality beers. Almost 8 years later and with over 250 different breweries on their radar, they feel that they are close to achieving that goal. I think you’ll agree when I say that the beer scene is really vibrant at present with over 1400 producers. It really seems to have come alive in recent years.
Having met both Will and Gill, I was blown away by their enthusiasm and passion for showcasing British Beer. For them it’s not only about offering quality beers but also about the customer experience. They have the ability to offer a truly tailored approach to the beers that are selected. One service which seems to be missing from other similar websites to this one. I don’t know about you but I’ve made the mistake of ordering bottles from online websites and made real faux pars leaving me a little disappointed. I’m not ashamed to admit I don’t know much about beer.
Father’s Day Gifts
There are many Father’s Day Gifts to choose from. Ranging from £15 – £155 – something for all budgets. From a 6 pack, beer crate or a year’s subscription there is a gift for every deserving beer loving Dad. Personally, I love this crate – anything that comes in a keepsake box has my vote. We went for the beer crate for Mr H and couldn’t wait to fill the ‘Dad’s Beer – Hand’s Off’ with 12 of his favourites and a few new ones to try.
We just need a BBQ now to show it off. I love that you can select the beers yourself, use the online chat facility or ring the team for a bit of guidance. And that would be my top tip – leave it to the experts. A service the team offer is that you can guide them, by letting them know the types of beers/lager you or your Dad, Brother, Uncle like – they can then hand select ones for you to make your gift more personal and enjoyable. Seems to good to be true but honestly it works. Ooh, and all gifts come with a ‘Cheers’ gift card which Gill hand writes herself with your personalised message. And a beer quiz. Gorgeous little extras I thought. And lastly, don’t forget the last date to order is Friday 14th June. I think that’s Father’s Day sorted.
