You probably don’t need us to explain what a “dad beer” is. You know, those classic beers that have been in production since way before you (and sometimes even your father and grandfather) were born. These are the working man’s brews, the beers that your grandfather and father drank and haven’t changed much in the last half dozen decades. Even as the unstoppable force that is the craft brewing renaissance rages around them, these classic beers remain unchanged and untouched by time.

And we like it that way. Sure, we love a good IPA or barrel-aged stout every now and then. But sometimes we just want a no-frills, refreshing, easy-drinking beer. Check out some of our favorites below.
