Daddy-o, Pops, or Father — whatever you call them, just don’t call them ‘late for dinner’! (A classic dad joke is appropriate for Father’s Day, right?)
Whether they’re known for cracking an old corny joke or not, all Dads deserve a day to be spoiled. This year, your favourite stores are open and ready to help you choose the perfect gift for the father figure in your life.
For the beer-loving dads
If your father is a beer lover, Homecraft Brew & Wine has the perfect Father’s Day Deal!
“With every purchase of a starter kit, your Dad will also get FREE admission to our Craft Brewing workshop where we’ll walk him through the ins and outs of making beer,” said Rob Sulley, owner of Homecraft. “We cover the basics of beer, the craft beer movement, tasting and choosing ingredients and recipes, and the entire brewing process from start to finish.”
Not ready to commit to the full starter kit? Tickets to the Craft Brewing Workshop are $30 and can be purchased either online or in store.
Four workshops are scheduled throughout the summer, and there is flexibility for different dates or private classes. Homecraft invites anyone interested to contact them at 613-384-6088 or in store.
Homecraft Brew & Wine is Kingston’s first DIY wine and beer retailer. They offer high quality ingredients, selection and service with a 100 per cent unconditional guarantee of perfection. Find them at 2787 Princess Street in the Woodbine Plaza, or online at www.homecraft.on.ca
Give the gift of great beer this Father’s Day!
Help Dad cherish his memories forever

For the foodie father figures
For all the foodie fathers out there, Flight Cheese Shop is putting together a Craft Beer & Cheese Tasting Kit!
The kit will feature six kinds of cheese (300g total) as well as a box of crackers, a map to know which cheeses are which, a shopping list of beers to pick up either from the LCBO or local craft breweries, and a comprehensive guide on pairing beer & cheese. (Gluten free crackers are available.)
Please note that beer is NOT included in the kit, and those ordering from Flight receive only the box of cheese and a pairing guide directly from the retailer.
Flight offers other cheese boxes, should Dad not be a beer drinker, or simply purchase this kit and skip the beer altogether. Their cheese boards are available to browse on their website.
More details on the Craft Beer & Cheese Tasting Kit are available on the Flight Cheese Shop website or visit them in-store at 2789 Princess Street.
