BEER! Endless supply! Ohhhh baby, this site is awesome, sending you a never ending supply of canned and bottled beer from all over the country! Tavour is the perfect way to try rare, limited edition, new and exciting beers from all of the breweries you can’t find in store. Tired of your local brewhouse? Don’t have a wide selection at your local liquor store? This company is perfect so you can try anything and everything. They have every type of beer from your hoppy IPA to your fruit sour. They work with over 600  independant brewers to share awesome beer to an amazing craft beer community.
They have a super easy to use app where you can review the daily beers, complete with a photo and description of what to expect. You’ll get 2 notifications a day of new beer releases. Some of them are hot sellers so you can set up notifications to get alerted when your fav beer or brewery is released.Then just stock up your online cart and they can ship monthly or as often as you’d like!

Their beers are highly vetted before being featured, I love the photos they post, they make the beer look sooo delicious! I want them all! But seriously, do people just get one of each? I probably would, tasting a little of each is my fav so it’s perfect for a beer tasting party! I would host 1 a month and crack open all my treasures from Tavour! There is also the option of sending someone else a box or you can choose one of their curated gift boxes which there are a few themes to choose from; 1. Sours 2. Stouts 3. IPAs or 4. Mixed Beer – this one is my fav and a great gift idea. You can get 8 bottles or up to 16 cans for only $99 plus free shipping!

Some examples! One day I had a fun beer called Weird & Gilly, an IPA. They gave a background story of where the beer got it’s name, which I didn’t know. They’ll show you the rating from BeerAdvocate and Untappd. They’ll tell you all the basics like the IBU, ABV, Style, Brewery and Town it’s from. They had a fun pistachio jones dog stout, looove the bottle, so hilarious. They also have share buttons so you can ask your friends if they want to try it!

Small Batch Dispatch

Standard

BEER ALERT!!!! Looking to get local Canadian beer delivered straight to your home? Small Batch Dispatch curates, sources and delivers the very best small batch craft brewski’s straight from Ontario to your doorstep. They have a few subscription options to choose from including the a half size that comes with 4-5 beers which is $35 a month, or the full size which is 8-9 beers for $65 a month. Shipping is $15 within Ontario or $19 across Canada. Here we have an example of the half size subscription with 5 unique beers. I love that they send all different kinds, we absolutely love trying new beers, that probably one of my favourite hobbies is visiting all the new breweries to try out new beers, and going to the bottle shops to see what new items are out around town. This saves you the trip and brings you new and exciting beers each month without you having to do anything but crack one open and enjoy! We got some super fun ones like the Peach Sour from Grain & Grit Brewing, a Pina Colada Milkshake ISA from Collingwood Brewing, a Helles from Block 3, Barleywine from Rouge River and a Pale Ale from Redline Brewing. If you were luckily enough to get the November box before it sold out then you can look forward to beers like a Raspberry Spice Saison, IISA, American Porter, and a blueberry & cranberry sour. DELICIOUS!

Another amazing option is to pick up their Advent calendar! I would say that either option, a subscription, advent calendar or single box would be an amazing gift idea for a birthday or Christmas which is just around the corner! Their advent calendar has 25 unique beers for $170, how excited would your loved one be to get one of those on the first of December? I wouldn’t be able to wait till December!!!! With over 250 breweries in Ontario, your sure to get some amazing new beers!

Be sure to check out their website for other tips and tricks. They have a blog where they post recipes using beer, they have local brewery tours that you can jump in on (a must if visiting!), you can buy glassware, and add-on bottles in their online bottle shop. Found an amazing looking Passionfruit Sour in their bottle shop, a must try for sure! Order here;
