Do you have a DIY Dad? Maybe a Craft Beer Brewing Kit is just what he’ll love.

“Why endure lineups at the beer store, when you can easily make your own craft beer at home – and save money! Brewing fresh and tasty beer is fun and easy to DIY, and our starter kit includes all the fermenting and bottling equipment that you’ll need,” said Rob Sulley at Homecraft Brew & Wine.

“Homecraft is Kingston’s first DIY wine & beer retailer (EST. 1984). We provide high quality ingredients, equipment, selection and service for home distillers and wine makers as well.”

Find Homecraft in the Woodbine Plaza at 2787 Princess Street or browse their website homecraft.on.ca. Get in touch with them at [email protected] or 613-384-6088.

Gift Dad an experience on the water

Skip the usual Father’s Day gifts like alcohol, neckties, gift cards, or barbecue accessories. Instead, think outside the box and give your dad an unforgettable experience with the people he loves most.

Known as the “Gateway to the 1000 Islands,” the Gananoque area is a premier tourist destination in Canada, and marks the point where Lake Ontario flows into the St. Lawrence River. And City Cruises Gananoque offers four boat tours through the archipelago, sailing past historic Boldt Castle, the opulent residences along Millionaire’s Row, and the statue of St. Lawrence, visible only from the river.

A City Cruises Gananoque voyage provides a beautiful setting to gather the family and show the father figure in your life just how much you appreciate him.
