Celebrate Dear Old Dad in style for Father’s Day, this year on June 18.
From fashionable fathers to gustatory grandpas, local shops have something for every kind of patriarch.

Whether he’s a parent of a Nittany Lion or an alumnus himself, help dad rep Old State with this Penn State Vineyard Vines Tie ($85). Available in multiple colors, the classy and subtle print adds the perfect amount of Penn State pride for any spirited father.

Don’t let the setting sun stop dad’s summer grilling. Magnetic Grill Lights ($11.99) provide easy burger checkups for relaxing nighttime cookouts.

Up dad’s cocktail game with Bittermilk Drink Mixers ($26.50) in flavors like Tom Collins with elderflower and hops, smoked honey whiskey sour, charred grapefruit tonic with Bulls Bay sea salt and bourbon-barrel aged old fashioned.

For the history buff or nature lover, Wood Hicks and Bark Peelers ($39.95) details William T. Clarke’s long-lost photography that documented the growth of America’s lumber industry and the consequential altering of Pennsylvania’s forests during the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Use The Branch and the Vine’s Bacon Olive Oil ($16.95) to satisfy dad’s bacon cravings without ruining his diet. Simply drizzle it on any food that you normally add bacon to and enjoy the classic smoky flavor without the unhealthy fat or the mess of extra cooking.
