There鈥檚 nothing your dad probably wants more on聽Father鈥檚 Day than for you to chill with him and have an ice cold brewski (okay, maybe a DIY Father鈥檚 Day gift聽too). Since you鈥檙e more about that cocktail life, meet in the middle with a frosty beertail recipe聽that will please everyone. You AND your dad *may* even find your new favorite drink in the process. Heed your dad鈥檚 advice and take notes, because these 15 beertails will change the way you do happy hour with Pops forever.


1.聽Spicy Micheladas: If you鈥檙e asking yourself why this beertail looks a heck of a lot like a Bloody Mary, that鈥檚 because it pretty much is鈥 only with beer subbed in for the vodka. You can make these as spicy as you like, plus they鈥檙e a great refreshment for a hot summer day. (Freutcake)


2. Iceberg Margarita: You鈥檝e probably seen a similar version of this drink at beachside bars, but now you can make your own at home with your choice of beer. Try using a light lager for a salty and refreshing flavor. (via Superman Cooks)


3.聽Irish Snakebite Beer Cocktail: Beware: This snakebite is so drinkable, it will sneak up on you like a python if you鈥檙e not careful. Achieve the beautiful layering effect by pouring the cider in first, then adding the Guinness slowly over the back of a spoon. (via Pretty Prudent)

watermelon beer

4. Watermelon Shandy: You don鈥檛 have聽to be a mixologist to pull off聽this simple drink. All you need is fresh watermelon, pureed and strained, and your dad鈥檚 favorite wheat beer. The result is a sweet and invigorating treat for you both to share. (via Perpetually Hungry)

strawberry rhubarb shandy

5.聽Strawberry Rhubarb Shandy: Now is the perfect time to take advantage of seasonal produce, and it doesn鈥檛 get much more seasonal than strawberry and rhubarb. Make this for Father鈥檚 Day and it might just become your new favorite all season long. (via Baking a Moment)


6. Chambord & Ginger Beer Cocktail: Effervescent ginger beer combined with raspberry Chambord, club soda and a splash of vodka make up this fresh and fruity beertail. It鈥檚 the perfect ice cold beverage to have on a hot summer day. (via Cooks With Cocktails)

cherry slushie

7. Cherry Beer Slushies: Just because you and your dad are 鈥渁dults鈥 doesn鈥檛 mean you can鈥檛 share a slushie on Father鈥檚 Day. Dad is more likely to partake if it鈥檚 a beer slushie聽like this cherry-flavored concoction. (via Perpetually Hungry)


8. Rye Got Lei鈥檇 Cocktail: If there has ever been a perfect dad cocktail, this is it. If your father likes to end his evenings with a glass of rye and is a fan of hoppy IPA beers, he鈥檒l聽obsess over this malty beertail with a fruity twist. (via Saloon Box)


9. Cool Summer Blueberry Beer and Lime Cocktail: Since blueberry beer is quite sweet, it pairs well with tangy lime and vodka. The two are perfectly balanced with one another and create a summer staple cocktail Dad will beg for over and over. (via Drool-Worthy)


10. Monacolada: Think of this drink as a sugary version of a Michelada. It combines grenadine, lime juice and Corona to build a sweet and sour libation that can鈥檛 be beat. (via Fox and Fennel)


11. Blood Orange and Grapefruit Beer Cocktail: This cocktail is citrus city, and we鈥檙e not mad about聽it. Grapefruit beer, blood orange juice and lemon juice mesh into one glorious, tangy experience that鈥檚 good until the last drop. (via Cooks With Cocktails)

spicy michelada

12.聽Spicy Mango Micheladas: You HAVE to make these micheladas for your Father鈥檚 Day brunch. It鈥檚 an OG beertail with a sweet and spicy twist that will have the whole family asking for the recipe. (via What Do You Crave?)

Black Velvet Cocktail

13. Black Velvet: When you think of a beertail, you probably don鈥檛 automatically envision a Guinness and Champagne combo. News flash: You should. Your dad will love the brooding color, and you鈥檒l love the fresh bubbly聽pop. (via Always Order Dessert)


14. White聽IPA and Raspberry Beermosa: Your typical mimosa combines fruit juice with Champagne, but for this one, swap the Champagne for IPA and you鈥檒l have yourself a beermosa. Fresh raspberries add another layer of flavor that鈥檚 essential for Father鈥檚 Day breakfast. (via A Better Happier St. Sebastian)


15. Exotic Delicious Dark and Stormy Cocktail: Of course, this drink looks beautiful and welcoming, but its three ingredients offer聽a monsoon of flavors that won鈥檛 soon be forgotten. Show your dad your mad bartending skills by whipping him up a few of these bad boys. (via Dishes Delish)
