It’s Dad’s Turn to be
the Guest of Honor

Celebrate Dad with a Father’s Day Beer Tasting

We received such great feedback on our Wine Tasting for Mom event that I thought, why not plan something similar for Dad? This time we’re going with a beer tasting event in dad’s honor!

Thanks to an increasing appreciation for quality beer production, there are new breweries popping up all over the country. There’s a good chance that there’s one right in your neighborhood or close by. If possible, hosting your Father’s Day event right at the brewery can add a unique feel and make it more fun for everyone. Leaving the beer to the experts gives you more time to focus on the decorations and the fun details that make Dad feel loved and honored for all he does!

I reached out to Gretchen Schmidhausier, a friend of my sister, who recently fulfilled a lifelong dream and opened a microbrewery in her hometown of Neptune City, New Jersey, on the Jersey Shore. The Little Dog Brewing Company was named after Gretchen’s dog Quincy, a basenji, who is also the face of the brand!

Wine lovers like that it’s not as heavy as red wine but still packs enough punch to bring out the flavors of grilled meats. If rosé will be gracing your brunch, lunch, or dinner table this summer (and it really should) make sure it’s adding to your meal by pairing it with the right foods.

In fact, just last summer in France, rosé outsold white wine for the first time ever! With warm weather finally here, we’ve rounded up the best places to enjoy what’s been called “summer’s hottest drink.”
