La plus grande sélection de bière que j’ai vue depuis le délirium café en belgique. Le personnel est très connaissant et les prix sont imbattables ailleurs au Québec. Un incontournable temple de la bière pour les "geeks" de bière.
Took a cab here last night; about a $35 ride from downtown Ottawa, not a bad price at all split amongst 4 people. And well worth it. Nice old house feel. Small but packed a lot of people in comfortably, with a nice buzz of English and French conversations around the place. Service was extremely friendly and extremely knowledgeable - our waiter totally made our night. Tap list is quite impressive really - do not skip it just to get to the mammoth bottle list! Quite a few nice rare finds and old versions of classics. Food was limited but what we had totally hit the spot - pizzas were massive, especially for the price. Cheese plate looked great at another table as well. Prices were just fine overall I thought. A new favourite, I will be returning as often as I can. Worth the effort to get out to Aylmer.
We consider this to be our local, even though my beer drinking associates and I live 30 km away across the Ottawa River in another province! Lovely relaxed ambiance with a vast selection of bottled and tap beers. A real leader in bringing in leading edge beer from Europe and around the world. Great staff with deep knowledge of their beers. The best drinking establishment in the Ottawa area
Maison située pratiquement dans un quartier résidentielle, ouvrez l’oeil pour ne pas le manquer. Très belle terrasse, je ne suis pas entré à l’intérieur alors je ne peux juger. Choix de bière impressionnant avec des prix raisonnables. Le service est excellent et connaissant. On y retourne assurément!

L’Autre-Oeil is located a bit past the supermalls in Aylmer, in a pretty-much residential area. And going there is pretty much like walking in somebody else’s house! They have a pretty nice terrace, which can be open when it rains (they have a tent). Ambiance, well, it’s between 3 or 5, depending when you’re getting there. A bit strange between 5 and 7 on weekdays, but really calm later on (which is appropriate), even when there are lots of people. Service ranges from great-to-awesome, depending who’s your waiter. They seem to have tasting sessions for attendants. Now, there is 500+beers. REally, really heavy on the belgian side - with some private imports. Lots of Quebec micro-brews, and while some would expect to find a bit more of them, it’s still a pretty satisfying selection that would take LOTS of time to completely get by. You don’t go there for food, but I certainly have not been disappointed so far. Value seems steep for some belgian beers, but you have to remember that they’re private imports. Otherwise, les "Trips à 4" are a really, really cheap way to drink some good Quebec microbrews (average, 14$, but you have some that are even less expansive than this, so it’s really, really worth it). A must for everybody in the region.
This place is fantastic I go 2-3/month (I’m one of the lucky ones that lives a few blocks away) and every time I’ve been I’ve tried something different because the selection is enormous and it just keeps growing. Cozy inside with nice terrace outside. It’s a little bit pricey but this is to be expected due to the rare nature of some of the imports. The price for the Quebec micro brews however are very reasonable especially if you buy 4 from the same brewery (Trippe-à-4 for about 13-14$) The staff is extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. (They also have a new website that lists all the beers so check that out).

Cozy little house with only a couple tables and some place at the bar. Medium-sized patio. HUGE selection of beers, nearly 600 bottles and 36 taps, notably from Belgium, Québec, Denmark, Netherlands and Scotland. Great service, fast and friendly. Staff is highly knowledgeable. Very reasonable prices. Limited food menu. Best place in town!
Une ambiance chaleureusse avec des employées passionnés par leur travail, c’est plus que prendre une bière c’est un peu comme revenir chez soi après le travail et se retrouver avec des gens que l’on aime.Personnels distingués dans l’art de recevoir ses convives et surtout présent pour établir une amitié qui va sans dire insité le résidivisme. La sélection est rempli de trésor, de rareté et surtout de nouveauté chaque mois. Un incontournable pour bièrofoux et dans une étique de changement social, Il favorise la bière de dégustation dans le respect et la dignité que mérite le vin. Alors voilà pourquoi nous devons voir la consommation de bières d’un autre oeil...
