High West Bourye

This limited edition release is a blend of High West’s 10-year-plus bourbon and rye whiskeys, giving him the best of both worlds to sip on. He’ll taste dried guava and apricot followed by maple, brown sugar, and nougat. Make sure you join him in raising a glass.

Powers John’s Lane Whiskey

Jameson gets all the glory, but it’s this enterprising distillery that actually owns Ireland. Some have even called it the Irish Pappy Van Winkle. It’s a bargain, for what the 12-year spirit delivers:  He’ll enjoy layers of flavor including leather, tobacco, and vanilla and honey.

Perfect Pour-Over

The perfect pour-over is in reach with this precise kettle. Both the electric and stove-top versions look like they were made for a hip coffee bar, but they are easy enough for anyone to use at home. Round out the gift with a copy of Brew: Better Coffee At Home, a hand grinder for the freshest beans, and Fellow’s pour-over set-up.

Coffee Just for Him

Have the best bags of single-origin, small-batch beans delivered straight to dad’s door. Driftaway sends a tasting kit to help him hone in on the flavors he likes best before they ship out roasts he’s guaranteed to love each month. Each bag comes with the grower’s story so dad can connect with the farmer behind the cup.

Camping Companion

When an adventure-ready soft cooler just won’t cut it, it’s time to break out the RovR. This beast of a cooler easily attaches to a bike, takes on rough terrain like a champ, and and holds ice for up to 10 days. Add on a prep board for the ultimate campsite, party, or tailgate accessory.

Raise a Glass

Made in Portland, these hand-blown glasses celebrate some of the best peaks in the West. Pour a whiskey neat over Half Dome or pull a pint on Mt. Rainier.

Give dad everything he needs to create a custom brew at home with a kit from the Brooklyn Brew Shop. You can’t go wrong with the Simcoe Single Hop IPA made with Pacific Northwest hops, the crowd-pleasing Grapefruit Honey Ale, or the wheat-free Hard Cider.

Viva La Sous Vide

Kiss that clunky slow cooker goodbye. This compact device from Anova slowly cooks meats, vegetables, and even eggs at the perfect temperature for melt-in-your mouth meals (like this Beef Bourguignon). Thanks to the app, dad can monitor the temperature from anywhere instead of being tied to the grill or stove. Pair it with half-gallon reusable bags for waste-free meals.

What’s on Tap

Swing by dad’s favorite craft brewery and fill up this half-gallon growler to serve this Father’s Day. The double-wall vacuum insulated growler has a CO2 regulator so no beer ever goes flat. Take it camping for cold fireside beverages or use it to keep rotating taps at home.

A Gift with Kick

Any dad who would carry hot sauce with him everywhere if he could will love this homemade hot sauce kit. The Forager’s Blend uses chipotle, pequin, and guajillo peppers for a fiery red sauce that practically begs to be drizzled onto scrambled eggs and chicken wings. Made with habanero, piri piri, and Anaheim peppers, the Grove Blend is a yellow hot sauce with notes of citrus and herbs that melds deliciously with Mexican food.

On the Rocks

No bar cart is complete without cocktail-worthy ice. This tray creates perfect spheres that melt slowly so that bourbon or old fashioned doesn’t get watered down.
