Good People BrewingIf your dad is a fan of locally-brewed craft beers, Good People is the spot for him. For $10 you can treat dad to a tour of the brewery, a collectible glass and a pint of beer. (Affordable gifts are the best gifts, right?) Good People also hosts frequent events (often sports-related) and sponsors local charities, so if you’ve got a charitable, sports-loving, beer enthusiast for a dad, this is where he really wants to spend Father’s Day. (Tours take place on Saturday and Sunday at 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.)

BaseballDad doesn’t really need another tie, so the perfect Father’s Day shopping for him is probably sports-themed. Stock up on some baseball memorabilia while you watch the Birmingham Barons hit a home run or two. Baseball caps, foam fingers and ice cream bowls shaped like helmets are all available to show off your team spirit. And, of course, you can never go wrong with peanuts and Cracker Jack’s. (The Barons will play Mississippi Wednesday-Friday at 7:05pm, Saturday at 6:30pm and Sunday at 3pm.)
