Local retailers reopening just in time for Father’s Day

With the gradual reopening of the province, Father’s Day 2021 will be different yet again. Most local businesses will be able to accommodate customers and purchases, but COVID-19 protocols will still be in full force.

Please have patience with local stores and restaurants, as many are reopening for business after only providing curbside options for many weeks. Consider shopping local when hunting for the perfect gift for Dad, and check out these businesses for unique and fun ideas.

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.”

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.


This Father’s Day, surprise Dad with the ultimate BBQ feast that he can throw on the grill!

Choose from a Tomahawk Steak Feast or a Chicken and Sausage Feast crafted with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Both feasts include the necessary summer-inspired sides: fingerling potato salad with maple bacon dressing, corn on the cob, fudge brownies, 1 pint of ice cream and 6-pack of craft beer from Skeleton Park Brewery.

Is dad more of a seafood guy than a grill master? Gift him a decadent seafood platter loaded with lobster, PEI oysters, crab, shrimp and tasty sauces and dressings.

Feasts start at $125 +tax. Each feast serves 4. See all the details and pre-order by June 16, 2021, at https://aquaterrakingston.com/fathers-day-feasts.
