12 beers of lockdown Father’s Day gift

Whether you’ve been separated from your dad and missing him during lockdown, he’s a busy key worker or you’ve been isolating at home together and you’ve driven him to distraction, we reckon dads across the UK deserve an extra pat on the back this Father’s Day. With pubs closed for now, a Father’s Day visit to his local may be off the cards this year, but Greene King has just the present to lift the spirits of the dads everywhere.


Greene King is launching the ideal gift, the first ever beer Dadvent Calendar containing the essential 12 beers of lockdown. The new limited edition boxes, specially for Father’s Day (Sunday 21 June), are available online from today at www.greenekingshop.co.uk for just £22.00 a box inclusive of VAT, excluding delivery.


The pre-mix selection box, containing some of the nation’s favourite beers, is emblazoned on the outside with quirky beer puns and has serrated punch through holes on the top for easy access to the beer of the day.


The mixed box contains twelve bottles of beer - Greene King IPA, Abbot Ale, Abbot Reserve, Icebreaker Pale Ale, Old Speckled Hen, Old Golden Hen, Old Crafty Hen, East Coast IPA, XX Mild, Ruddles County, Belhaven Black and Belhaven 1719.

“This year, we are all appreciating family, more than ever before, whether we are together or apart” said Matt Starbuck, managing director Greene King Brewing & Brands. “Getting out to buy a gift for Father’s Day is difficult and taking your dad for a pint in the pub will have to wait a while with pubs closed for now, so we’ve come up with the next best thing. Dadvent Calendar is perfect for enjoying in isolation or sharing with the family at home.”


The Greene King Dadvent Calendar is limited so customers are recommended to get their orders in quick to avoid disappointment. Final order date to guarantee delivery before Father’s Day is Sunday 14th June (UK orders only).


Greene King is offering 50 boxes for free to deserving dads, so if you think your dad fits the bill visit Greene King Brewery facebook page and tell us why. [T&Cs apply]
