When you compare the gifts they generally receive for their special day compared to what Mum gets you see it's true. Is it because we love our fathers less? Of course not! We simply don't make as big a fuss and part of the reason (for me and the friends I asked anyway) is that I simply can never think what to get him.
My Dad is a lot like me in many respects, he isn't one to covet expensive material possessions, he has just retired and he has had an entire working life to fill the garage and shed with all the power tools, outdoor activity equipment, fishing gear etc he could ever need.
So I usually aim to give my Dad an experience, he has been hang-gliding, had nice meals, cruises, and for his 60th birthday this year, we got him a sky dive.
But those are done and dusted in an hour (or a minute if you're falling out of a plane) and sometimes you just want to give him something he can physically unwrap, something he can proudly show his friends and something he will actually use in his day to day life...
Well my Dad, most of his mates and my family, love beer. They meet at the pub, they have beers around a bbq, they go fishing and take a few beers with them. That's why the iKegger range is the ultimate father's day gift.
Whether the father you are buying for likes a quiet beer or two at home or is a passionate home brewer with a full kegging system in the basement, there are not many guys out there who wouldn't love to be able to pull a mini keg out of the fridge or esky and pour a fresh tapped beer wherever they are.

So by now you’ve probably seen “cold drip” or “cold brew” coffee popping up in your local cafes. And now the latest craze of “nitro coffee” So what are they and why should you care?
We show you how to make your own cold brew coffee, nitro coffee and espresso martinis on TAP!
Launched in 2013 Tap King looked like being a decent option for people wanting to have beer on tap at home. After buying the plastic dispenser and a 3.2L disposable plastic bottles of a select range of beers you simply took them home, chilled them and then attached them to the dispenser to have beer on tap in the fridge.
On paper I'm sure their marketing team thought it sounded like a good idea. I don't know of a single beer drinker who wouldn't want "frosty cold, perfectly poured beer" on tap in their kitchen, bbq area or home bar.
