For The Beer & Spirits Lover

Locally produced – given with love! That’s what happens when you give a locally made & bought gift during the holidays. You’re giving something unique – something original – supporting local business, and helping build up entrepreneurs and keeping dollars in our own community!

Blonde to Stout and every brew in between, members of our Barrels Bottles Brews Trail have got the perfect gift to quench the thirst of the beer and spirits lover in your life.  Pick up some cans, a growler or even a case for the beer lover in your life. If they’re more into spirits check out our distilleries – some of the best whisky, vodka, (and soon even Gin), in Canada come out of Windsor Essex!  Click on any of the icons below to buy direct from our Barrels Bottles Brews partners!

Give the gift of a good time! The Barrels Bottles & Brews Flight Log is a great way to explore & pour the 14 craft breweries & distilleries in Windsor Essex that make up the Barrels Bottles & Brews trail! The Flight Log is a digital tasting passport available for 1 day, 7 days or gift them a Frequent Flyer membership which includes a year’s worth of tastings at the 14 Barrels Bottles & Brews Trail stops.  You can even buy now and then have it set to send on Christmas morning so that it’s in their inbox when they wake up!
