If you're looking for a Father's Day gift that dad is sure to love, consider getting him a beer or wine subscription, or a gift card to a local delivery service. There are also tons of great booze-themed gift boxes. We've compiled a list of some of our favorites here for you to choose from.
Best Beer Subscriptions
With the plethora of subscription boxes and clubs available to choose from, these are some that your dad will no doubt be delighted with. Getting a shipment of beer each month or so is sure to make even the hardest to shop for father feel understood and appreciated.
The Beer of the Month Club is a family-owned business that has been around for over 25 years and features microbrews, international offerings, and specialty packages like IPAs and rare beers. In addition to beer packages, you can also sign up for wine, cheese, chocolate, cigar, or flower clubs, or even design your own subscription.
For Those in the Know
Your dad doesn't have to be a beer snob to appreciate craft beer, and The Original Craft Beer Club will help him discover even more new, niche favorites. You can order from 12-24 beers per month, or select every other month or quarterly delivery schedule, with breweries from across the U.S.
Beer Drop can help your Pop try five new craft beers each month. At just $4 per serving, this is one of the best bangs for your buck beer services around. Build a box with IPAs, Saisons, Sours, Stouts, or whatever you like!
Best Wine Subscriptions
I enjoy a good glass of wine as much as the next guy (let's face it, I also enjoy a bad glass of wine as much as the next guy), but it's so easy to get overwhelmed with all of the options out there to choose from. The good news is that these sites and services are more than happy to offer up customized and tailored recommendations to make your father feel like a sommelier.
Wine.com has a huge assortment of wines and vineyards to choose from, from all over the world. The service even offers free virtual wine tastings with experts to help you find the perfect pairing. Plus, if you sign up for Wine.com's StewardShip program, you can receive free shipping with no minimum purchase for a flat $49 annual fee.
The Audible of Wine
We love Winc not just because they have a great selection of wines, but because the service learns from your preferences to deliver better recommendations for the future. It is set up similar to Audible.com, wherein you get credits each month for your subscription that can be used toward wine purchases.
The Wall Street Journal... of Wine
Yes, you read that right: this is a wine site run by the Wall Street Journal! You can sign dad up for a subscription of wine to go along with his newspaper subscription, or just surprise him with a bulk order of his favorite bottles. Shipping prices can be a little steep if you don't order in bulk, but it also has an annual shipping membership that costs $89 for unlimited free shipping.
Best Alcohol Delivery Services
Delivery services are a great option if you're in a bind and need something delivered quickly (an alcohol emergency). Many are available across the U.S. and Canada, but there are also local options that may work for where your father lives.
If you're looking for a quick, last-minute surprise for dad, consider ordering his favorite wine, beer, or spirits through Drizzly. Drizzly is available in 102 markets across the U.S. and Canada and pledges one-hour delivery with a low, flat-rate delivery fee.
More than Just Food
You're probably used to ordering takeout multiple times per month from DoorDash, but did you know that in many places, you can order alcohol delivered from the service as well? You can search by alcohol in the app for restaurants and bars that will deliver hooch or convenience stores such as 7 Eleven. Don't forget, if you have DashPass ($10/month), you can save on delivery and processing fees for each order.
Liquor Stores, Wine Shops, and Groceries
Instacart is one of the oldest and most well-known grocery delivery services around, but it can deliver more than eggs and milk. In most locations where they serve, they can deliver wine and beer from grocery stores, but in many cases, they can also deliver from liquor stores and wine shops. Log on, put in your zip code (or your father's zip code), and see what your options are.
Best Booze Boxes
In the spirit of enthusiast subscription boxes, these don't actually deliver alcohol, but fun and creative items related to your father's favorite drinks. Swag, ingredients, and inspiration fill these packages!
This subscription box will appeal to the adult and the kid in your father. It doesn't contain beer or alcohol, but it does ship with a mix of beer gear, branded glasses, stickers, and other cool swag. Oh, and it also comes with a special, curated snack to pair with your dad's next brew. How fun is that?
Mix it Up
Shaker & Spoon ships a box to your Pop each month with a mix of handcrafted cocktail recipes, syrups, bitters, garnishes, mixers, and just about everything needed to make the perfect drink, minus the actual alcohol itself. On that note, each box comes with a recommendation for the ideal liquor to go with the contents from a bartender who knows their way around, well, a shaker and spoon.
Not all the parts
1pt features a delightful selection of cocktail mixes, recipes, and infusions to bring your dad's next cocktail party to the next level. Each month you can get a different themed-box delivered, with options like chocolate, pumpkin spice, chili, and more. Delicious!
Bottoms Up Pops
As a father, I can't think of a better Father's Day gift during this hot Texas summer than a nice cold adult beverage. My preference is generally toward beer over wine, so I recommend something like the Beer of the Month Club (opens in new tab). It's family-owned (relevant on Father's Day), and has a wide selection of packages.
That being said, I can always go for a nice Pinot Noir (opens in new tab) or even a fun beer-related gift box from 1st Sip. Whatever your dad likes to imbibe in, be sure to set him up right with drinks delivered through one of these great services. Happy Father's Day!
