We’re all about rewarding hard work. So in honour of your hardworking dad, here’s Steam Whistle’s perfect Father’s Day gift guide. We’ve split it up for Pint size ($25 and under) and Keg size ($50 and over) budgets.


Greg Taylor

This is for the dad that’s hard to keep up with. While you prefer cheering for your favourite sports team…he’s outside playing them.

Pint size budget
Why not bike ride down to the brewery and take advantage of our Public Bike Repair Station and enjoy a pint and tour. If you’re feeling extra generous you can pair it with our cycling jersey available online and in our store

Keg sized budget
Alternatively, if your dad likes to break a sweat, check out Steam Whistle’s sports gear including; Premium Golf Polos, Soccer Jerseys, and a Hockey Bag!

Cam Heaps
If “Top Gear” and auto parts is your dad’s preferred poison, these gifts will be right up his alley.

Pint size budget
Bring Dad on a tour at our John St. Roundhouse brewery and check out Steam Whistle’s vintage vehicle fleet. Actually, why not bring home his own miniature Steam Machine, a 1967 Ford Econoline Heavy Duty, with our #SWCanVan 10 pack. Now available at our Brewery and Beer Stores across Ontario.

Ted Reader If Dad’s culinary expertise extends beyond frozen pizzas, we’ve cooked up something just the right (too corny of a pun?). (Image: Ted Reader Canadian BBQ chef).

Pint size budget
Cook up a storm or give him all that he needs to make the most epic meal ever, all made with the golden ingredient; our all-natural Pilsner. Whether you’re looking for a main (yum beer baby back ribs) or want to go all out with a four course meal, we’ve got all beer inspired recipes here.

Mini keg budget
Too hot to cook? No sweat, there are some awesome mouthwatering events to attend during the Ontario Craft Beer Fest.
We’ve paired up with our west coast railroad brothers Railway City Beer for a Keg Swap- bring Dad to the Roundhouse to taste some west coast beer and yummy pairings. Need something with a little more substance? Check out the Craft Beer and Food Truck Festival or Sessions Toronto Craft Beer Festival with delectable pairings of 30 craft brews and sides by renowned chefs.

Not Pizza dad


Suit n Tie dadEven if he’s not one to get his hands dirty, Dad and his suit work hard to bring home the bacon (mmmm bacon). These gifts would please any suit- wearing- beer- lover.

Pint size budget
Our schnazzy Steam Whistle lapel pin is only $5! Throw in one of our belts and you have the perfect combo for $25. Or go for the cuff links and tie pin combo. Warning: May cause overt flirting and heightened social interactions.

Keg size budget – Get it all!

(Notice: We were unable to capture a pic of the elusive man cave man.

We suspect  he is in Stanley Cup hibernation mode)

This is for the dad who likes to entertain in his man cave. If sports only big screen TVs and bar fridges seem just right, than these perfect accessories would make any man revert to permanent hibernation mode.

Pint size budget
Upgrade Dad’s glassware with a selection of pint glasses. Or if he wants to be the envy of his buddies, give him the Steam Whistle Wall Mounted Opener; this baby opens beers, has a place to drop the cap and  is magnetic.

Keg budget
You will be the talk at Sunday night’s beer league if you get this one. Let your dad bring his cave to a whole new level with Steam Whistle tap handles, or a truly Retro Cooler.

There you have it! And if he just wants a laugh- let him watch this <- not so subtle product placement happening.
