Located in the heart of the Glebe area of Ottawa. Fairly standard pubby decor. Three hand pumps and about another 15-20 taps. A wide selection featuring McAuslan, Wellington, and Scotch Irish. The food here was pretty good, typical burgers, but lots of selection of toppings and choice of patties. Servers were friendly, but as mentioned before, they didn’t seem to know the beers all that well.

Same comment as the side of the bar was empty, but the tap lines were full and ready for samples. 5$ for four 5 on. samples. Only thing, they always seem to have the same products. Tuesday night is 25 xcents wings...big juicy buggers

I was expecting more of an old-school, wood filled pub along the lines of the Bow & Arrow or Rebel House in Toronto, but this is along those lines with that “plunked in a mall” feel to it. It was cozy though, and the smell of chicken wings permeated the air as we walked in instantly deciding my menu choice. Wings were delicious, though I have to admit that mine tasted better, and I was sweating a lot less after returning Intertiaboy’s suicide wings in exchange for my medium wings! The staff was friendly and courteous, despite an inability to identify what kind of sauce is on the wings, hehe. Cask of Scotch Irish was not at its prime but still quaffable. Beer selection had decent sampling of Ontario micros. Nice spot to hang out and watch the game, really enjoyed my visit, but I wouldn’t necessarily recommend going out of your way to get there.

L’apparence de ce pub est bien ordinaire (ça va avec le reste du complex où il se retrouve) mais il y a beaucoup de place pour boire. Le choix par contre est très bien, domminé par des bières micro-ontariennes et la nouriture est très intéressant.

This place probably has the best selection of rotating Ottawa and Ontario taps on this side of the river. They do a good job of having lots of Ottawa local stuff with some imports from Toronto breweries and Flying Monkeys. Go during the week for great food specials like half off everything on the menu on certain days. The decor isn’t great with lackluster ambiance, though. Also, the service at the bar is terrible, though the table servers seem ok. The place offers taster flights but the bartender discourages ordering them, so I wouldn’t bother unless you are at a table.

Zero ambiance is counter-balanced by a good selection of local microbrews. The food is quite a bargain as well.

Nothing terrible. Here before hockey game, server was efficient, but sitting in the courtyard was not great ambience. 2 casks on though made it worth it.

Easily the best place in Ottawa for a decent pint. This place has 22 taps as well as Cask Ale with a nice selection of bottles in their cooler. Not bad. Cider is also available. Staff is knowledgable and very friendly. They respect a beer evaluator. Food could use some work but who cares when the beer selection is this good.

Been here a couple of time in the the last couple of months, most recently for the Cask Festival. Probably the best selection of local (Ontario) beers in the city. Suffers from a poor location with a weird inside patio in a mall but also has an outside patio that is nice. Food is decent, as is the service but I am hoping they continue their trend of rotating in different local beers and that they expand their cask selection (3 the last time I was there).

Fairly jocky, sports-bar-like ambiance (but I was there on Grey Cup Sunday so that may not be the usual). Service was friendly, fast and efficient. Plenty of taps of local micros to select from. I’d return here again, although it wouldn’t be my first stop.
