Not really a stunning brewpub. Management doesn’t really care about beer - just a gimmick for them it seems. Place looks kind of generic on the inside and the beers are pretty pedestrian. Not exactly cheap either. Go in and get the ticks if you must, but otherwise give this one a skip.

Very friendly staff and nice open space in the Byward Market. Beer selection was a bit small, but they offered flights. Beers ranged from decent/good to meh but nothing offensive. I sort of cracked up when they cheated on the pumpkin beer by sprinkling McCormick pumpkin spice directly on the head of my beer.

Nice place but the beer selection is lacking. Aside from their August Ale all their beers are mediocre at best and the other taps are all macro crap. This could be a great place if they’d add some good micros.

Another old brick-laden location, nice and cosey, with booths, high chair tables, excellent location in the Market. The beers are, as usual, typical CT fare, boring (5 regulars, one seasonal, and the Molbat crap). The porter was decent. Service was friendly and somewhat knowledgeable.

Visited a couple summers ago, could have sworn i had rated it though....
Decent layout, patio is a little cramped, but overall the decor, and layout are fine. They had 3 of their own beers on tap with some macros. This i thought was very odd, its the first brewpub ive EVER seen with macros on tap! Their beers are pretty pedestrian and boring really, nothing fancy, and the food was decent. Good but nothjng earth shattering, your basic restaurant fare. The service was spotty, my server was preoccupied with her cell phone most of the time, and my wife had to ask 4 ties for a glass of water.

Checked this place out on a somewhat hot afternoon. Decent looking, dark mahogany wood of a perhaps less than authentic variety. Service was actually pretty decent, laid back but still attentive and friendly. Tried a couple of the beers and was not unimpressed. The place still has sort of a sports bar feel to it, though I didn’t mind it. Like a semi-upscale sports bar. Food seemed underwhelming. Much better than the craptastic Huether Hotel back in Waterloo. But is there some sort of unwritten rule that brewpubs in Ontario have to suck? They’ve got their 5 house brews on tap, along with an alarming number of macro’s, and Steamwhistle. Coors Light? F***ing seriously? Why would you need to have that crap on tap if you’re a brewpub? It doesn’t scream confidence in your own stuff. If you’re having people complain about wanting more pedestrian shitty beers, maybe they’re not the kind of people who should be going to brewpubs anwyays. Uhg, the state of the brewpub as a concept in this province is just pathetic at this point. I would go back, though downtown Ottawa is within walking distance of Brasseurs du Temps so I’d rather go there 9 times out of 10.

Établissement visité le samedi 11 décembre vers 20h. Ambiance: L’endroit est bein situé au marché By. Brique et boiserie partout. TV sport un peu partout et musique en arrière fond. Service: Sympathique mais erreur sur la commande de ma copine. Sélection: 6 bières maisons et quelques macros. (163e rating d’établissement)

very nice inside, and is in a great location. i wrote not applicable for food, because i did not eat. the beer, is a poor man’s micro. nothing complex or even half good. however, i do believe that this place is a small step towards making ottawa (and ontario in general) appreciate good (micro) beer. i would compare this place to Les 3 Brasseurs in montreal. a very limited selection of beer, which is easy going but nothing great. certainly beats coors light or molson on tap though!
