Tasting notes: Break out the beer and BBQ

Plus: Wine & Spirit hits Sugar Beach


If a thousand dads were polled on what their perfect day would entail, I’d wager 95 per cent of them would utter the words “beer” and “barbecue” in the same breath. Treat Papa to a day at the annual Boom 97.3 Beach BBQ & Brews Festival, running Friday to Sunday (June 19 to 21) at Woodbine Park. What’s better than slamming a few beers in the sunshine and ambling in ecstasy from one grill to another with Pops? There are live tunes, too. Free admission. beachbbqandbrews.com.


Wine & Spirit hits Sugar Beach

If Pa’s got any energy left after 10 pounds of ribs and a litre of beer, whisk him off to the seventh annual Toronto Wine & Spirit Festival, Thursday to Saturday (June 18 to 20) at Sugar Beach, for more Father’s Day indulgences. Tickets ($35, $25 adv) and info at wineandspiritfestival.ca.
