(KMSP) - Seven lucky dads were selected for a Father's Day surprise this weekend.
In honor of Father's Day, the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild is not only delivering beer, but also covering lawn mowing duties.
Families could nominate their dads through the Nextdoor App, and one family invited Fox 9 to see the surprise.
For Oliver Perez, Father's Day is extra special. His second child was born on the day in 2012. His wife, Jamie Perez, nominated him for the surprise delivery of local beers.
Her nomination detailed her husband's love of local beer, and his dream of running his own brewery named after their "awesome" dog. He is involved with all extracurricular activities the kids partake in.
According to his wife, after his weekly mowing ritual, Perez loves to have a shower beer (always local!).
"Lastly," said Jamie Perez. "And certainly not least, he's a solid, stand-up guy. A good friend. An awesome husband. The kind of guy Minnesota prides itself on."
On Saturday, Ethan Applen, the CEO and co-founder of Lakes & Legends Brewing in Minnapolis cut Perez's grass.
Jamie Perez's entire heartwarming nomination can be seen below:
1. Oliver loves beer. He brews his own. He keeps a keg of local (always local!) beer on tap in the basement at all times. He dreams of one day running his own brewery named after our (also awesome) dog.
2. He's an amazing dad to our kiddos. When our son was born on Father's Day, well, that pretty much sealed his epic Dad status. He rocks tee-ball practice, soccer practice, music lessons AND field trips. Mom doesn't ride roller coasters? No worries, Dad's got that. Mom's traveling? That calls for Daddy Awesome Weekend!!!!! (ask the kids...). Oh, also? He works at Post, which means an endless stash of non-Mom-approved sugary cereals in the pantry.
3. While he does mow a mean lawn, usually followed by a shower beer (oh yes, that's a thing in our house...), I'm sure the man would love a break. I mean really, wouldn't everyone love a week off from mowing?
4. Lastly, and certainly not least, he's a solid, stand-up guy. A good friend. An awesome husband. The kind of guy Minnesota prides itself on.
