Throw a Beer Tasting Party for Dad This Father's Day

See All Photos

Dad's Day Party Table

Show Dad how much you love him by throwing a rustic-themed beer tasting party, complete with his favorite snacks, beer and games. Give it a customized look with a plaid paper banner and food labels, twine-covered bottles and specialty beers for guests to try.

Beer Tasting Station

Set up a tasting station and label the different types of beer with simple plaid tags. To attach the tags, tie them around the beer bottle necks with twine for a rustic look. Make a game of it by turning over the tags and having guests guess which type of beer they're tasting.

Galvanized Buckets

Galvanized buckets are great for serving chips, ice or drinks. Tie plaid fabric or burlap around the center of them so they match the rustic theme.

Pub Pretzels

Give the party a pub atmosphere with typical menu items Dad loves eating at his favorite bar. Serve pub-style pretzels — an easy, tasty snack that tastes great with beer.

Popcorn Containers

Label food containers using online printables from Paper & Cake, or make your own by gluing plaid-patterned scrapbook paper to plain containers and stamping letters on them. Customize the containers by putting "Dad," your dad's name or "Happy Father's Day" on them.

Plaid Bunting

To make a budget-friendly garland, tear up your dad's old plaid shirts and tie them in bows on a long piece of twine. Wrap it around the beer tasting table or hang it over a doorway.

Game Labels

A party isn't complete without a few competitive games. Designate specific areas indoors or out for your dad's favorite drinking games, and make sure to have signs so people know where to play.

Budget-Friendly Decor

Label and decorate everything, including the beer bucket, so the party has a cohesive look. Wrap buckets, tables, chairs and other items with burlap to continue the rustic theme.

Blue Moon Cupcakes

Combine two delicious treats — beer and cupcakes — into one. The main ingredient in these cupcakes is Blue Moon beer, which adds an orange-amber flavor to the dessert. Top it with an orange slice for an extra fruity twist and printable "Happy Father's Day" cupcake toppers. Get the cupcake instructions>>

Beard Photo Props

To commemorate the party, set up a photo booth with easy DIY paper props. Cut beard shapes out of scrapbook paper, and attach them to wooden sticks for a fun way to celebrate Dad.
