Grab dad a pack of Garrison Brewery’s Irish Red or Nut Brown beer. Garrison also offers a “Mixed 6” pack so dad can try all of their delicious varieties. Craft brew from Propeller (they just released their latest seasonal beer, Black IPA) or Pale Ale from Rare Bird Craft Beer are sure to be a hit as well!

2. BBQ

There is no prep work – just thaw and place it on the grill and serve.

If your dad would prefer something else on the grill, top it with Roasted Garlic & Onion Chutney from Tangled Garden. This chutney is a hot and spicy garnish for roast beef, steak, burgers and other barbecued meats.

If your dad has a sweet tooth, Nova Scotia definitely doesn’t fall short of scrumptious treats to try. Head to Sugah! and grab the best of both worlds with their Beer & Pretzel Brittle, proudly featuring Garrison’s Irish Red Ale.  If dad isn’t a beer man, try Rum Runners Rum Cakes – each one contains 4 ounces of rum!


Digby PinesIf your dad is a golfer like mine, I’m sure he would love the Golfer’s Delight Package, offered at Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa. This package includes accommodation, breakfast, one round of golf and 50% off additional rounds of golf (starting from $122.00 per person plus tax).
