Nice, nice pub in Little Italy in Ottawa. Many sections in the bar - the terrace is really so-so though. Like the abbey. Lots of beer-related objects inside (it was really wierd to see a Mickey’s sandwiched between two Chimay bleue, however. Annoying hip-hop. Service was a bit slow, and it was sunday, but then, I asked for a "beer of the month", which might explain. 200+ beers and 30+ taps and 10+ beers of the month. Interesting, but still second to L’Autre Oeil in the region. Will try food someday. Prices are in line with Ottawa’s pubs.

Great beer list, cool atmosphere, food could be better but it’s 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 décor 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 isn’t 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 don’t 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 that’s not saying a whole lot. Usually has an interesting special or cask on. I personally didn’t like the food, but I’d 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.

Nice enough tap list for Ottawa, lots of bottles, but nothing someone scouring the LCBO couldn’t get, and very overpriced. Food has been hit and miss.

Funky Abbey-like atmosphere with plenty of kitschy stuff to look at. Very compartmentalized throughout. Friendly staff. The beer selection was fairly extensive but not organized in a way beer geeks would appreciate. For example "coolers and lambics"???? Of the beers available, there were a few nice selections and a number of local crafts but the bulk of them were mass-produced stuff you can get at the LCBO.
