If your dad likes craft beer, he’ll love Brewmates — a new subscription service for homebrewers. Each kit comes with all the ingredients to brew unbelievable beer, tips and tricks to make brewing easy, a custom recipe developed by a brewmaster from an independent craft brewery (like Keegan Ales in Kingston), and swag like a T-shirt, glass, or koozie. Subscriptions are available for one year, six months, and pay-as-you-go.
Your dad can brew top-notch coffee like a first-rate barista with the Stagg EKG, which pours as good as it looks. This electric kettle can maintain a desired temperature for up to 60 minutes with the hold feature, and the Brew Stopwatch lets you time brew for optimal results. Available in copper, polished steel, and matte black.
