Itís worth checking out for its cosy and interesting interior. Plenty of beer paraphernalia of mostly Belgian inspired theme. Friendly staff. Honestly, I just wasnít blown away by the beer selection. Too much macro stuff dominating the taps and less than interesting Ontario beer and common Belgian beers in bottles. Iíve heard bad things about the food so didnít bother eating. Again, worth a look but donít have high hopes for the experience.

Monastic themed, low-lit bar. Around 30 taps but with only a handful of good picks. The beer bible looks impressive but itís moslty international lagers and Belgian macros. Iíve always been pleased with the service, friendly and quite knowlegeable. Itís not my favourite place but it worth a stop once in awhile.

Great beer list, cool atmosphere, food could be better but itís allright for a pub.

Great spot with a decent selection, but nothing on the food menu is the least bit appetizing. The sub par food options takeaway from the extensive beer list. Servers have a fair amount of knowledge about the beer. Interesting dťcor style. Very cozy feel.

By far the best selection in Ottawa. They have the beer bible and will not disappoint. Not cheap mind you but the ambiance is unique and characteristic.

Definitely the largest tap list on the Ottawa side of the river and also the largest bottle list. For anyone who is well versed on the Ontario beer scene, there isnít much that is interesting here. Everything they have in bottle is mostly typical LCBO fare with few private imports. Their tap list is a little more interesting but they tend to stick with the ordinary favourites found anywhere. They donít seem to have many local beers on tap compared with Black Tomato or Arrow and Loon. Cool vibe and good service though.

Both in quantity and quality this stands out among the best places for craft beer in Ottawa, although thatís not saying a whole lot. Usually has an interesting special or cask on. I personally didnít like the food, but Iíd go back for drinks over most places in Ottawa.

Beer bible is awesome. Could do without some of the mainstream beers that you can get anywhere. Great selection of Belgian Trappist beers. Equally good selection of Canadian craft. I would highly recommend it to beer enthusiasts.
