Best beer to share with Dad this father’s day

Fathers Day Beer

Are you looking for the perfect brew to share with your dad this Father’s Day? Every beer-loving pop deserves a cold one on his day. Is he the self made “beer snob”, you know… the kind of guy who knows the difference between a stout and a ale? Here are a couple of ideas where you could get a pint or schooner.

The Taphouse

Lucky dads can celebrate their day the right way at The Taphouse Darlinghurst. Offering free paddles for every dad on the day, where they can pick any 5 beers from their huge tap selection local and international beers. It doesn’t stop there, the Taphouses famous Sunday Roast is also on from 12pm, which can be enjoyed on their sun drenched rooftop or vintage chic dining room.

On the taps, perhaps try the

* Põhjala – Pime Öö PX (Cellar Series), 13.9% Stout
* Oxford Brewing Racket – CO-OP, 4.2% Laer
* Nomad Brewing Co – Collaroy, 5% Golden Ale
* The Bruery Terreux – Stream Crossing, 7.2% Farmhouse Ale

There will also be Vinyl DJs spinning from 1:30pm well into the afternoon.

The Oxford Tavern Presents – Beers, Bourbon, Bands and BBQ

BBQ enthusiasts the Oxford Tavern have curated a 3-course BBQ banquet to share matched back with a carefully selected drinks menu for each course.

Beers to consider on the taps:
* Watts River Brewing, 6.6% IPA American
* Yulli’s Brews – Norman Australian, 4.9% Pale Ale
* Young Henrey’s – The Stayer, 3.5% Lager Pale
* Holgate Brewhouse – Road Trip, 6% IPA American

Local crooners Crusin’ Deuces serving you rockabilly South West sounds 2pm right through until 5pm. This event is strictly bookings only so get your tickets.


Nothing says Father’s Day like a feast fit for a king! (Which let’s be honest, Dad’s are king!) September 1st Kingsleys are all about spoiling your dad. With their two course meal featuring the famous 1.2 kg Angus grass-fed tomahawk and their scrumptious great Southern lamb shoulder. These complimented perfectly with steakhouse chips, green beans, and a granny smith apple crumble for the sweet tooth.

All washed down with Cape Mentelle ‘Trinders’ Cabernet Merlot whilst soaking in the waterfront views.

Coogee Pavilion

Loads to entertain the kids whilst dad gets to enjoy his meal, down a cheeky a cold drink and soak in the waterside views.
