The ultimate Father's Day Gift; BEER
Give your Dad the gift of beer. You can't go wrong with a 4-pack of locally crafted brews. Here are just a few we recommend:
House of Funk; Funk Juice @houseoffunkbrewing
Bring your Dad to funky town with one of House of Funks' tasty brews. They serve up great sours and specialize in beers with distinctly unique flavour profiles. Take their ever-popular Funk Juice as an example. It's a rotating smoothie sour and of their best-selling concoctions. This North Van microbrewery also made waves when it won VanMag's Brewery of the Year in 2020. So, you know it's good!
Staple Beers From Phillips Brewing @phillipsbeer
Phillips Brewing is a Lower Mainland, BC staple, creating deliciously reliable craft beer since 2001. Plus, you can find their stuff in most liquor stores in Western Canada, making it easily accessible. Just another reason to pick up a pack for your pops!
Out of this world BRews FROM MARINER BREWING @MARINERBEER
Inspired by 1960s space exploration, Mariner Brewing is a Coquitlam craft brewery that serves up out-of-this-world brews with funky space-themed labels. You can't go wrong with any of their beers, so grab a 4-pack and WOW your dad (bonus points if he is a big space nerd).
PROTEIN POWDER Gifts for the fitness father
Another great option is some protein powder. Whether your Dad is a huge gym-goer or a workout once every two months type of person, we've carefully selected our staff favourites to supplement his sessions!
Magnum; CHOCOLATE SHAKE PROTEIN POWDER @magnumsupps
Magnum's shake series makes getting your protein in taste like a treat. If your Dad's got a seriously sweet tooth, this is the perfect gift.
PROTEIN POWDER ESSENTIALS FROM MUTANT @MUTANTNATION
If you know anything about supplements or fitness, we guarantee you've heard of Mutant products. It's well known for a reason, and you truly can't go wrong with any of their stuff.
COFFEE Gifts for the extra caffeinated dad
Parenting can be challenging, but that's nothing a little caffeine can't fix. Do your dad a solid and gift him some delectable micro-roasted beans for a little pick me up on long days full of soccer practices or following those painful sleepless nights.
Phil & Sebastian is a well-known Canadian coffee roaster with a stellar reputation. Even if you're a Vancouverite, you've probably heard the name. After receiving a sparkling review in the local paper, this direct trade coffee roaster became an overnight sensation in Calgary. If your pop is a coffee aficionado, impress him by purchasing an espresso or pour-over coffee maker for an even better experience.
The coffee shop turned coffee roaster; this local gem churns out quality. Take it from us, we're a team of proud coffee snobs and it's a frequent member of our in-office rotation.
Rosso is another prominent Alberta-based coffee roaster that's got tasty beans. They've even come out with an instant coffee line, giving you the same delicious taste in less time. What's not to love? Check out their offerings online to select the perfect product for the father figure in your life.
SAUCES TO SPICE UP YOUR DAD'S LIFE
Let's get saucy! Too much? We'll try and tone it down, but not before we list some delicious sauces that pack a punch and bring the spice. If your Dad is a fan of Flavour with a capital F, consider gifting him one of these delightful locally made gems:
Sriracha Revolver began with the goal of "creating a staple product that adds fun, flavour, and inspiration to the chef at home." The BC-based company produces delicious craft-sized batches of hot sauce you can enjoy with any food. If your Dad likes to whip up kitchen miracles, or simply enjoys adding a little extra flavour and heat to his foods, this stuff is the go-to.
We're heading into summer, and you know what that means...Barbecue season. If you know the grill is just calling your dad's name, give in to the siren song and grab your Dad a bottle of local bbq sauce from House of Q. It won't disappoint!
SELF CARE Items for the DAd That NEEDS a Little ME tIme
There's no shame in the self-care game. Channel JVH and bring on the beard oils henny! Help dad live his best skin life with these items for a bumping hygiene and self-care routine.
Why did the man maintain his beard to perfection? Because if he didn't, things would get a bit hairy. By the beard of Zeus! (we really couldn't help ourselves) Unleash his inner Viking with the Beard Struggle's line of beard grooming products. (Warning, luscious locks and thrilled father may induce even more dad jokes than usual. Use with care and caution.)
Last, but certainly not least, check out Routine Cream's carefully crafted line of shampoos, oils, and creams. This Alberta-based company makes nothing but natural products you can easily implement into your (or, in this case, your Dad's) daily routine. Pun intended.
