You know a greetings card just ain’t gonna cut it this year, and frankly, why should it when you could take your Dad beer or wine tasting, help him restore his old furniture, or create art out of old records. Here are five Dabble classes in St. Louis that will get you spending some quality time with your old man:

Drink Beer, Learn from the Best:

Wednesday June 17, 6:30 – 8 pm

Hoppy

Craft beers are all the rage and your Dad is gonna dig this class! After and learn about the culture of hops (varieties, how they are essential to beer brewing, etc.) from a local brewmaster, you’ll blind taste test 5 different beers to see if you and your Dad can distinguish the hops in the beer – and rank them, too!  This class is perfect right after or just before a hearty steak dinner, so book here to treat Dad right!
