Trying to think of something thoughtful and creative to get Dad for Father’s Day? If you’re on the West coast then step away from the ties and buy him some beer instead! The Churchkey Can Co., a craft beer line created by former Entourage star Adrian Grenier and friend Justin Hawkins is out just in time for beer fanatics to enjoy for summer.
Developed as an ode to the original 1935 flat top canned beers this Pilsner is nostalgic, light and organic. Dad will have to use an old churchkey to punch two holes into the can, which was the originally method of opening beers before the pull-tab was invented. The vintage look of the can makes it a great collectible when it’s empty or to use around the house as a pencil holder, planter or anything else you can dream up of.
These beers are doing some social good, too. The cans are made up of steel beam, which is 70 percent more recycled than aluminum and infinitely recyclable. And by buying craft beer, you’ll be supporting small, local businesses that will help the craft community flourish.
Churchkey is available in Seattle and San Francisco but will be rolling out to New York, LA, Chicago and Austin and online sales in August. For more information and store locations visit churchkeycanco.com or the Churchkey Can Co. Facebook page.
