Father’s Day and the World Cup 2014!



With Father’s Day approaching, it’s time to start thinking of ways to make Dad feel special and appreciated this Sunday 15th June!

The obligatory (but boring) gift of new socks, or yet another practical tool kit are probably not doing much to inspire your hardworking Dad, so you’ll no doubt be looking for something to help him relax and enjoy the day.

If your Dad is a fan of football, then he’ll be in for a treat as Father’s Day conveniently falls a matter of days after the World Cup 2014 starts, giving him uninterrupted privileges to the games on TV (for one day at least!).

By gifting your Dad with some beer glasses you’ll be able to join him in a pint whilst you watch the football together – after all, what’s more important than creating mutual memories with the old man on Father’s Day?!

For you to fully enjoy this time together, we have plenty of beer glasses available to suit a diverse range of tastes and styles – and to enhance your football watching experience too of course!

With options including Novelty Beer GlassesBranded Beer Glasses, and Craft Beer Glasses, there’s something to make all beer loving Dad’s very happy this Father’s Day!:


Beer Glasses to suit every Dad’s style:

Is your Dad a stickler for tradition? The classic handled beer mug is the ideal drinking vessel for replicating the pub experience at home – and with a vast selection of shapes and sizes of our Beer Mugs, Beer Steins & Tankards available he’ll have plenty to choose from!

The other classic British beer glasses used regularly in pubs are the Imperial Beer Glasses and English Beer Glasses – so if your Dad is set on recreating the experience of being at the pub in the comfort of his own home, this style of glass will create that illusion perfectly!

The type of glass most renowned within this category is the Tulip Pint Glass or Nonic Pint Glass – with the tulip shaped glass being most recognisable as the Guinness Pint Glass and for its standard use as an ale or porter beer glass.
