One of the best breweries in the Ottawa region. Restaurant is inside a very nice old building. Interesting concept and layout. The museum is ok. Service is hit or miss. If it’s a Friday afternoon you can forget about caring stuff, the place is packed with people. I still can’t forget how a couple of years ago, they pretended my reservation was not confirmed and it was for a waiting table. Our group of 10 people waited for 2 hours without getting a table. Since then they changed their reservation system and it’s much more reliable. The selection is mostly limited to their stuff, with some guest taps. The tray of 12 samples is a very nice way to try the best they have to offer. They do have a store onsite where you can get some bottles. Food is probably their best attraction. Prices are average for Ottawa region. Worth a visit.
Located off the strict centre of the less than charming Gatineau, this spacious brewpub is a very nice place to stop and rate galore. The chief attraction for the beer hunter, apart from the brewery museum, is the clock - 12 own beers served on a clock tray in 3 oz. tasting glasses and arranged according to the increasing ABV. They are all decent, but let your car stay in Ottawa, please. The staff are very friendly and they know something about their beer and about beer tasting in general. They food is quite decent, too - I had baked brie and it was served like a gourmet dish rather than typical pub grub food. I would gladly come back one day, since there are more beers on tap to be had than "just" the clock.
Can’t believe I forgot to rate this. Home to Canada’s only brewery museum(free) in a historic old brewery by Brewer’s Creek. The Horloge tasting set is 12 tasters making a clock for about 20 bucks which is a great value. I enjoyed myself a lot and it is a massive brewery. I have yet to finish my write up for my blog though...
A worthy visit in Gatineau. A dozen beers on tap and all pretty solid. I ordered about half in tasters which costs a few bucks per taster. Food is pub grub and tasty enough. The bartender was very good and described the beers well. The venue is large and clearly caters to groups. It’s an impressive location by the river so a nice place to enjoy the beers.
Popped in for a quick lunch with my wife and two year old. Excellent service, not a lot of families but they were great with our kid. Pretty slow to bring food out but they were attentive during the wait. Had a couple of flights, a tasty terrine and my wife’s sandwich was solid too. Beer was very well made in a wide variety of styles. No complaints here.

Nous saluerons toujours le BDT pour avoir été les pionniers d’une industrie brassicole en Outaouais, élevant ainsi l’intérêt des bièrophiles d’un cran vis-à-vis notre région. Malgré cela, j’ai toujours trouvé leur bières lourdes. Question de goût sans doute. La nourriture est correcte sans plus. Le service dépend du serveur. L’endroit est par contre génial pour les spectacles sa participation au renouveau du centre-ville. La Terrasse est tout simplement magnifique. On y retourne de temps à autre.
Visited on a Friday end of afternoon. Large and well located place. Was quite crowded, but the service was fast and friendly. Selection is interesting with 12 of their beers on a draft and a guest. There’s some good bottles though. The beer on draft isn’t expensive though and you can try all their beers for 17$ which is great. The problem is none of their beers were very good and most of them were awful. That was disappointing considering their reputation is good and some their beer beers are/were phenomenals (Corne et la Muse Brandy). Overall, a nice place but I was expecting more of their beers.

L’endroit est assez grand. On a eu de la misère a se trouver une place, mais c’est pardonnable car c’est pendant le temps des fêtes et en pleine fin de semaine. Même choses pour le service. Un peu lent mais les employés était sympathique. Très grande sélection au menu. Bière de qualité, d’autre un peu moins, mais demeure une excellente microbrasserie au Québec. La nourriture était excellente j’ai rien a redire. Finalement il y avait un petit musée de la bière amusant au sous-sol. Sérieusement très solide a battre comme endroit et j’ai oublier de dire que c’était situé dans une ancienne brasserie!
