When you think of Father’s Day gift ideas, the first items that come to mind are usually bad ties, cheesy mugs and tacky aprons. Don’t get us wrong, any of these gifts are much better than getting Dad a whole lotta nothing but, you’ve gotta admit, they’re all a little hackneyed. A little uninspired. And your dad deserves more than that.

That’s why you’ve come here: to get solid Father’s Day gift ideas for beer-loving fathers. Keep reading to discover fantastic gifting options of the fermented persuasion that will delight dear ol’ Dad.

1. A Trip to the Biergarten

Spare yourself the plane fare and bring Munich to you and Dad! We’ve just opened our Biergarten at the Roundhouse, and it brings to bear the best in Bavarian hospitality. We’re talking communal eating and drinking. We’re talking traditional German eats, like pretzels, sausages, schnitzel as well as vegetarian and vegan fare. We’re talking incredible brews on-tap, like Fat Tire, Von Bugle and of course, Steam Whistle.

If you celebrate Father’s Day with the whole family and need a lot of space for your tribe, then a trip to the Biergarten is definitely a top Father’s Day gift idea.

2. Experience Enhancing Glassware

Das Boot 2L glass for when Dad’s extra thirsty.

While your dad may love our brew so much he’d drink it out of an old boot, there are much better ways to enjoy a frosty pint of Steam Whistle — like in one of our custom made glasses. From mugs, to steins, to milk jugs and sure, even a glass shaped boot, we’ve got totally distinct, totally awesome glassware Dad will love.

Shop the full selection.

3. Heart of the City

Time with you is likely what Dad wants most, so why not treat him to some QT in The Six? Specifically, in the heart of the city. Visit the CN Tower, the Rogers Centre, the Railway Museum, and of course, our home, the Roundhouse. Here you can take a tour of our historic facility and then head on over the Biergarten for refreshment.

4. The Beach Rib & Craft Beer Fest

Here’s one of the best Father’s Day gift ideas for dads who have a Fred Flinstone love of ribs. Held on Woodbine Park on Friday, June 14th to Sunday, June 16th, The Beach Rib & Craft Beer Fest is an amazing way to spoil Dad with two of his greatest loves: meat, and beer.

5. BYOB Cooler

If Dad’s idea of a perfect Father’s Day involves hanging out at home in his gitch, then you’re going to want to resist the urge to drag him out on the town. This day is supposed to be about him, remember. Instead, bring the party (or lack of party) to him with a thoughtful gift you’ve prepared yourself: Bring Your Own Beer Cooler! Stock a quality cooler with his favourite beers and snacks, and either stay to enjoy a couple cold ones with him, or get lost and let the man be alone. Whatever he wants, he’s earned it.

6. Home Delivery

Vying for the kid of the year award? Then have our brew delivered to your dad in time for Father’s Day. From bottles to kegs, our home delivery will bring our beatific beer to your hard working Pop.

Perfect if you can’t be with Dad on Father’s Day, you can be there in sudsy spirit. Our beer home delivery is also a great idea if you’re planning a big bash for Dad and want to have one less thing to worry about. We deliver all over the GTA. Simply call to arrange a delivery.


The best Father’s Day gift ideas will be the ones that honour the guy that he is. Stay true to the dude you know and love, and your gift will be perfect.
