Be good to Dad this Father’s day by tapping into some local beer and grilling

Father’s day is this Sunday which means Dad is allowed to do the things he loves all day without any questions. Beer and barbecue are two things that every Dad usually love to consume on his Sunday Funday. How can you make sure that he’s enjoying his holiday to the fullest? Try some our favorites to celebrate Dad this weekend.

Gift a local Lowcountry Brewery

Instead of getting Dad a pack of his regular brews, check out this local Lowcountry beer that’s certain to surprise him! Service Brewing Company is based in Savannah, Georgia and has a variety of flavors for every palate. Luckily for us they have two seasonal summer beers, the Savannah Banana and the Gun Bunny Belgian-Style Witbier. The Savannah Banana is brewed with over 360 pounds of bananas and fermented on Belgian yeast, this highlights the flavor of the complex yeast flavors with a subtle banana finish. (A nod to the famous Savannah Bananas Baseball Team which is in full swing during the summer months.)
