Whether he’s cracking a stubbie after work with the boys or he’s more about an after-dinner scotch on the rocks, your dad’s favourite tipple says a lot more about his personality than he realises.
Aussie beers you can get him for Father’s Day
He’s a loud and proud Australian through and through. He’s fiercely patriotic, loves his cricket, AFL and NRL, and there’s nothing he wouldn’t do for a mate. He likes real beer and doesn’t care that he’s got a beer belly. He believes we’re on this Earth for a good time, not a long time, and he lives his life to the fullest. Not much of a conversationalist during grand final season, you’re mostly likely to find this dad with his feet up in front of the telly, holding up a bar down at the local where everyone knows his name, or in the backyard firing up the barbecue and cracking a cold one, no matter what the weather.
A chosen favourite of the Queenslander.

Tequila you can get Dad for Father’s Day
Your dad is the kind of dude who likes to have a good time. His choice of drink is exotic and that’s the way he lives life. His motto is “eat, drink and be merry”. He’s enjoys a bit of adventure, is the life of the party and he knows how to have fun. He can often be quite embarrassing with his dance moves and terrible karaoke renditions.

Whisky you can buy Dad for Father’s Day
If your dad drinks his whisky straight, he’s a manly man but he also has a classy and professional side to him. He likes to savour every moment and he appreciates the finer things in life. It’s likely he’s in a high-stress job and he takes his role as the provider seriously. He has a refined taste and typically looks polished and professional.

Wine Dad might enjoy for Father’s Day
Your dad is mature, past his party animal days and likes to keep things mellow. If he orders wine when he’s at the pub, he’s very confident in his own manliness and doesn’t give a damn what anyone else thinks. His idea of a good night out is dinner with a few select friends or a quiet corner in a piano bar. He’s chilled out and has a relaxed attitude to life.
Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc
It’s the perfect refreshing wine that won’t break the bank.
(Dan Murphy’s $17)
Penfolds Koonunga Hill Cabernet

Cocktail suggestions for Dad
It’s not every day you hear a bloke ask for a strawberry daiquiri or a fluffy duck, especially when that bloke is your dad. It says he’s flamboyant and a good-time guy. He doesn’t drink the hard stuff to be cool, he drinks what tastes good. He’s secure, knows what he likes and can pull off wearing pink shirts with confidence.
