Father’s Day is fast approaching (it’s Sunday, September 1st 2019 for those who forgot) so what better way to find out more about dads than to see what their favourite beer says about them. See if you can spot your dad from the list of faves at The Northlands Tavern.
For the dad’s who think they’re the best thing since sliced bread, and still use that phrase unironically. They’re up with the latest fashion from every classic Aussie surf brand, and they already have the new iPhone. Heineken dads are also more likely than the average Joe to pay for everything in fifty dollar notes and drive a sports car. Heineken is for the dads who think that export beers in green bottles are ‘classy’. They’re also the dads who love to overuse the word ‘classy.’ Is your dad a Heineken dad?
Is your dad a seasoned drinker of the Aussie classic Victoria Bitter? With “all those funny beers” crowding the shelves now VB dads long for the simpler times. They’re hard-working family men and, just maybe, a bit mad, because no amount of VB hangovers could keep them from ordering VB at the pub the next day. VB dads are working-class dads who love a good feed and bargain hunt at IGA. They also secretly love watching Dancing with The Stars, but they’d never admit it. Right?
For the dad who loves his Holden Commodore a bit too much. He’s also not afraid to be vocal about how much his footy team was robbed over the weekend. Carlton Draught is for dads who spend plenty of time relaxing. Once they’re sitting down that’s it, there’s no getting them up. Carlton Draught dads are keen on fish and chips and when there’s an ad break during the footy those serial channel switchers are straight to the V8 Supercars. Good news for you Carlton Draught Dads, we serve it on tap so you can park yourself up for a frothy on game day.
For the younger dads, who occupy a space around the fringes of the healthy-living brigade, and think they’re not too old for music festivals. When visiting Uncle Dan’s you’ll buy a slab of dry because, you know, less calories and preservatives and all that. Cartlon Dry is for the no-nonsense dads who love their beer but hate the big tummy that comes with it. We get it, The Northlands Tavern crew have you sorted with Carlton Dry on tap, it’s the perfect afternoon beer.
For dad’s who really tried to like craft beer, but it was all a bit much. Too hoppy. Too citrusy. And more importantly too expensive. For dads who love a camping trip down south but hate packing the car. These dads are nice guys who are first to hunt out the antipasto platter at every party. Because according to them “Fat Yak is best paired with cured meats and spicy wings.”
For the dads who once did the UK working visa, and never let anyone forget about it. The well-travelled dad that spends most nights watching ABC or SBS until midnight. They like something a bit fancier to go with their intellectual TV programs after a long day in the office. Note to self: Stella Artois dads are always grumpy in the morning.
For laid back, easy-going dads who live for Summer. These are the dads that constantly get in trouble from mum for saying yes to things the kids ask, that he should not be saying yes to. Great Northern Dad’s camping and fishing gear take priority in the car, they’ll throw a shaka instead of waving and are always up for an adventure.
Reckon you’ve picked your dad from his beer? Take him to The Northlands Tavern this Father’s Day for his favourite frothy and a good pub feed. Or dads, if you’re reading this, drop the hint early and we can book you and the family a table.
