Celebrate Him Together 

What is it about cooking over a fire that seems to draw us all in… Particularly the men in our lives? Light a grill or fire up the charcoal, and watch the guys gravitate towards it. 

Dan and I LOVE foods cooked over fire, whether it be gas or charcoal or wood. With this in mind, I’m excited to offer a grill focused menu to celebrate the dad in your life this Father’s Day. Treat him to a wonderful night in, where he can choose to be the chef or just sit back and watch the action.

Whether you’re able to celebrate in person, or just want to send him a massive treat of a feast, he will feel cherished. Fully prepped, super easy to cook and serve, all that is needed is fire and heat (maybe some tongs, salt and a grill brush too…) If a grill is not within your reach, the menu can easily be adapted to the broiler in your oven.

Instructions for fool-proof assembly included.

The Beer from Avling Kitchen + Brewery


Just down the street from our Queen East shop is a terrific brewery and restaurant: Avling Kitchen + Brewery
We are thrilled to offer a curated mixed pack for the Dad in your life.

Each 12 pack will consist of two cans of the following:
Kinsman Bohemian Lager – Czech-inspired lager made with a German twist. Low ABV, high flavour, beautiful texture. Crackery and crisp. Perfect for the sun.
3.8% A.B V.
Salieri Vienna Lager – The fiery copper colour foreshadows a deep maltiness. Richly toasted bread, dark brown sugar, and molasses cake play lead, with a mild spice and biscuit supporting. Earthy hops bring harmony and balance to the sweet impressions, and help structure the long, palate-pleasing finish.
5.0% A.B.V.
Geist Stout – Bitter chocolate, cocoa, dark fruit. Clean and crisp, while remaining certifiably stout-like. Roasted notes, hint of smoke, and an elegant, hop-tinged finish. Campfire vibes.
4.5% A.B.V.
Calm Sea Ontario Pale Ale – Made with 100% Ontario hops from Highland Hop Yard. Notes of pineapple, lemon, red fruit, and biscuit. Soft, fluffy and very drinkable. Brewed with 100% Ontario grain too!
5.0% A.B.V.

Avling IPA – Bold but welcoming, Avling IPA arrives with a firm handshake and a warm smile. Lush tropical aromas of orchards and citrus groves mesh seamlessly with notes of honey and biscuit, backed up by a sturdy but soft bitterness. And, after the final sip, the graceful finish of this expressive and agile IPA beckons for the next meeting.
6.0% A.B.V.

Carillon Biere de Miel – Made with Avling rooftop pineapple sage and raw wildflower honey from our friends at Rosewood Estates in Beamsville, Ontario. Textured and elegant, it resonates with tropical, savoury joy. 
5.2% A.B.V.
