Dads are notoriously difficult to shop for, aren’t they? They’re not likely to tell you what they need, and they probably already own all the toolbox essentials and sports gear that they want. Sure, they might be in need of some updated threads, but this can be a risky purchase depending on his style preferences. 

But with Father’s Day just around the corner on June 18, time’s ticking away to find the perfect gift!

RELATED: Best Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Thank goodness for booze to make your Father’s Day shopping easier. No, we aren’t suggesting you get liquored up before you go shopping. (Although, we aren’t not suggesting it…) What we mean is that there are plenty of awesome alcohol-related gifts you can give your pops if he’s been known to sip on a fine whiskey or enjoy a nice frosty mug of the brewed stuff from time to time.

Whatever his choice of drink — from beer to tequila to fine wine — there are a variety of thoughtful Father’s Day gifts available to show dad that you care enough to help him take the edge off. 

(However, if your dad’s not much of a drinker, you can skip the booze and check out these unique Father’s Day gift recommendations instead.)

Read on for all the best boozy Father’s Day gifts for your dad that are sure to have him kicking off the summer season right.

Best Tequila Gifts for Dad

Lone River Ranch Water

So your dad typically opts for a classic Budweiser straight from the bottle on a warm summer day? While there’s nothing wrong with that, maybe it’s about time you expose him to something a little more with the times, like this season’s coolest new canned cocktail trend: ranch water. This six-pack of agave-flavored hard seltzer harkens back to the drink’s classic West Texas roots with the seasonally perfect combo of tequila, lime juice, and soda water. It’s also available in rio red grapefruit, prickly pear, and *spicy* varieties to kick things up a notch at this summer’s barbecues.

Dos Hombres Mezcal

This artisanal, 100-percent agave mezcal comes from a collaboration between actors Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, who famously became real-life best buds while working on the series Breaking Bad. Crowned the winner of numerous spirits competitions, it blends the finest Espadin agave grown on the hillsides of Oaxaca, making for a distinctively smooth sip with fresh notes of apple, mango, and local “zapote” fruits. This is balanced with a hint of woodiness from the barrels where it is fermented, and a smooth and ever-so-slightly smoky finish. It’s perfect for sipping along with the current and final season of the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul. (And, if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on the elite, limited edition tobala version, even better.)

Ilegal Añejo Mezcal

Looking for a mezcal that’s a bit more on the lavish side? This spirit is sure to be beloved by fans of all mezcal and tequila, but it would also make for a fine twist to shake up the palate (and bar cart) of scotch and cognac fans. That’s because this Oaxacan mezcal is aged for thirteen months in American oak, French oak, and used bourbon casks to impart a particular richness with a spicy, smoky finish. But at first sip, this añejo is mellow — elegant, even — before landing on sweet notes of honey, vanilla, and maple alongside clove, bitter orange, and dark chocolate. (And don’t worry, it’s not actually “illegal” as its name implies — it just tastes criminally good.)

Best Whiskey Gifts for Dad

Cutwater Devil’s Share American Whiskey

As they say, the devil is in the details — and this carefully crafted whiskey is no exception. Distilled in small batches, then aged four years in heavily charred American oak barrels, this award-winning whiskey is distinctly sweet with strong flavors of woody caramel and vanilla, plus hints of cinnamon, cardamom, and licorice. It’s also devilishly smooth, which is sure to make a special treat for dad to sip this Father’s Day.

Aberfeldy Gifting Set, Single Malt Tasting Collection

Aberfeldy, also known as The Golden Dram, has put together a wonderful gift set that dad will love, featuring three different single malt samples, aged 12, 16 and 21 years, all of which won awards at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition. If your dad is a fan of Scotch Whisky in general, he will be thrilled to open this gift.

R.O.C.K.S Whiskey Chilling Stones

Whiskey stones are the perfect gift for dads who prefer a chilled glass of whiskey but don’t want their drink diluted by melting ice. This attractive set contains six granite stones, two whiskey glasses, and an instruction guide. It makes for a great gift on its own, but you can also complement it with one of the aforementioned bottles of whiskey if you and your siblings are working on a joint gift.

Best Beer Gifts for Dad

Craft Beer

If the dad you are buying for is a Budweiser guy, a six-pack on Father’s Day is a nice, albeit expected, gesture. If the dad you are buying for is a beerhead, a unique craft beer is a more thoughtful gift choice. Not all craft beers are available in all areas, so shop around on Drizly for staff picks (we recommend this Allagash White or Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale).

Roughly $10 to $50 at Drizly.com

YETI Hopper Portable Cooler

Capable of holding up to 12 cans (plus ice), this cooler is all set for a day of brews by the beach with his buddies. Durable and leakproof, this YETI model can maintain cool temperatures for hours, and it’s puncture-resistant so it can tackle any outdoor adventure, from fishing to camping to tailgating his favorite team. It’s available in lots of fun colors to fit your dad’s personality, and that super convenient bottle opener on its side it’s just the awesome cherry on top.

$250 at Amazon.com

Brooklyn Brew Shop Beer Making Kit

Every dad likes to have a project in progress, especially if it’s one he can enjoy with his kid afterward. This kit includes everything he’ll need to brew his own beer: a one-gallon glass container, fermenter, grain, hops, yeast, a thermometer, tubing, and a screw-cap stopper. All you need to do is figure out what kind of suds Dad will like best. This kit is for an everyday IPA, but several other brew styles are also available.

GrowlerWerks UKeg

A growler is a unique Father’s Day gift idea for the dad who has taken up an appreciation for craft beer brewing in his spare time. The 64-ounce GrowlerWerks uKeg allows you to set your carbonation level and keep the beer fresh for long periods of time. This is especially helpful for microbrews that don’t distribute bottles, or for the dad who prefers the taste of keg beer over a bottle or can. It also includes a dispenser tap and a sight cap to see how much beer is left, and it will allow Dad to keep his beer fresh while in transport so he can take it on the road and share it with his pals.
