One of the newer places in Ottawa, this bar has potential. They have a lot of good bottles and while still mostly LCBO fare it seems like they are developing some more private imports. Their tap list is good but doesnít rotate a lot compared to Arrow and Loon or Black Tomato. The list is usually half Ontario craft staples like Mad Tom or Smashbomb with a couple of good imports. They bring in a few interesting one offs from local breweries or craft stuff from Toronto or further away. They open a new cask once a week on Thursday and itís usually gone after the weekend.

Great spot, went twice while in Ottawa. Fantastic food, especially the charcuterie. Two different bartenders on two different visits, both knew their beer facts and both were super friendly. Quite a few tables available outside too. Great selection of taps and bottles, with a cask on Thusdays (Twice As Mad Tom when I was there). Great spot, definitely would return.

Went in for dinner but didnít prefer anything on their limited menu but stayed for a drink. Nice bottle list with a solid tap. Had a Rodenbach Grand Cru for $10. Would try and come back and try again. Patio is perfect for the summer.

We went there for the Sunday brunch and had some very good plates to accompany the solid tap list which includes many rarer local beers (there were two taps from Beyond the Pale on our visit, for instance). I ate a spatzle and artisanal bacon plate that was delicious and not too expensive. We had very friendly service all along despite our son being on a moody day and the place being almost empty on that very rainy day. The selection is solid, easily among the best in Ottawa and centrally located which makes it a no-brainer for a good meal. The venue itself is perhaps a bit smaller than what the outdoor look had led me to believe, but itís very comfortable with a nice and large brick wall and tasty, modern wood and black dominating colors and large windows leaving plenty of natural light in,

My first visit since this place opened and was not disappointed. The look of the place is tasteful with a nice bar area, stone wall, not too big. Excellent and knowledgeable staff to serve, and good beer selection for the Ottawa area, with some rarities from TO and other provinces. The food is pricey but is part of the experience, all beer based, had the shrimp and belly on polenta, served with bread and chocolate malt butter (nice). They do flights of select beers.

Visited Feb. 26, 2013 (evening). Not that old of a restaurant and it has already gained good clientele. A beautiful urban style restaurant, not very large. A pretty good but small food menu, a little pricey, I had the steak frite, delicious! Not bad tap list, not as big as Black Tomato but more variety, and they have a very good bottle selection, only LíAutre Oeil in Aylmer has more. A good rivalry to the Black Tomato!

Went for lunch and the place was empty apart from a few tables (might have had something to do with the -30C weather outside) but more attention for us. Obviously we had very attentive service but they also knew their beer including chatting about distribution; beer selection was great for Ottawa and prices and size were reasonable as well (12oz Peche Mortal for $9). Food was delicious and at least at lunch reasonably priced (dinner not so much). Love the atmosphere but see how it could get crowded and noisy at dinner. So I highly recommend coming for lunch and then staying for beer and charcuterie - just be mindful that the kitchen closes between 2-5:30.

Ambiance is a bit noisy but it might be from the guy who likes cozy atmosphere. Looks more like a restaurant. But thatís OK . I was there for the beer. Service is good, smiley and friendly. Selection of beers is very good for a couple of months operation bistro (close to 100) and quality of selection is good too.Very good taps and well served (proper glass) Food is excellent also. Keep up the good work
