Nice location, fairly big inside. CLose to a stream soyou can have a little outdoor ambiance. Wait staff ranges from familiar with to helpful regarding the beer. Can be a little slower when the place is busy. Usually a good selection of BDT beer on tap and usually a guest tap. Food is pretty good but a bit pricey. Since I found the place I have yet to make a trip to Ottawa without visiting.
Sept. 13, 2011. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to BDT. I had a hard time conversing with the servers as my French is poor (aka non-existent). They were very friendly and tried to work with me. I ordered the sampler tray and they still managed to communicate what order they were in.
The food was tasty but my order was a little drenched in sauce.
The beer was fantastic - a great diversity in the selection of brews; however, it is notable that they serve only their own beers as far as I could tell.
I would recommend it.
The place is HUGE and impressive, located in an historic building. I prefer smaller places as the main room feels like a huge cafeteria. The service was horrid in the first year but is getting better. Food is fine but a bit pricey. There is only a small section where you can drink without eating, the rest is licensed as a restaurant so you need to order food if you want to drink. Their brews are usually pretty good and excellent in some occasions, but the pint and guest beers are overpriced.
Second visit to this pub, very nice ambiance, quite cozy. The staff is friendly and the bar offers about a quater of the beers this brewery produces on tap. I hear the food was very nice but have never tried it. Prices are definately within the reasonable range, good value. Ilike.
good selection of home beers, interesting styles, mostly german and belgium. lounge-type that doesn’t fit at all with the beautiful and historical ’’chateau d’eau’’’s architectural outside. bad service at the tables with waiters that don’t know much about beers. some good invited beers from quebec craft breweries. food is ok but a little expensive. IF YOU’RE JUST GOING FOR THE BEERS, THAN YOU’RE FINE.
Établissement visité le vendredi 10 décembre vers 18h Ambiance: Vaste établissement avec décoration industrielle/historique. Musique en arrière fond. Nous étions à la section comptoir car il y avait une attente de 3 heures pour une table. Service: Lent mais correct. Par contre nous avons eu une erreur au sujet de notre entrée. Sélection: 12 bières maisons et 1 bière invitée. Longue carte de cocktail et alcool. Nourriture: "Cocktail de crevettes géantes" et "Tartare de bison façon BDT" en entrée. "Côtes levées BDT" et "Civet de wapiti de la ferme des Monts à la Kaput Mauer et aux airelles
" comme repas principal. Brownies et crème brûlée en dessert. (162e rating d’établissement)
Nice place, nice location, good beer. I really enjoyed the Diable au Corps last time I went. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the neighborhood. I believe they use to have guest beers but now they only serve their own, although they have a larger selection then before (usually 12 beers on tap that cover a wide variety, all of which are good)
Very nice place, ambiance is incredible, the service was very good with a good selection of beers. Beer quality was good and inspired great beersin the future. Food was delicious and not too expensive.

La première vrai micro-brasserie à Gatineau ! Les bières sont flamboyantes, différentes, originale. Évidemment le brasseur, Dominique, trippe à fond. Une belle place sur le bord du ruisseau de la Brasserie avec une grande terrasse. À l’intérieur, spacieux, original avec une vue sur les cuves. Un musée s’est rajouté dernièrement. Personnellement, j’adore les bières produites mais je me dois de soulever que j’ai toujours trouvé le service douteux, même mauvais et la nourriture n’est pas pour moi en plus d’être trop chère. Ce n’est pas le menu qui me dérange mais bien les plats dans leur ensemble et le prix qui vient avec. Il y a aussi cet air de prétention qui gruge mon appréciation de cet endroit. J’aimerais tant que notre microbrasserie soit conviviale et chaleureuse comme Chez Gambrinus à Trois-Rivière ou La Barberie à Québec. Ça vaut quand même le détour.
Awesome spot in the Ottawa-Gatineau area that is a must for anyone into beer. Not a far drive from the provincial border, in fact my friend and I walked from here to Pub Italia on the Ottawa side. Nice modern decor, with large windows to see the kitchen and brewing area. Spacious patio. Very friendly bilingual service, highly knowledgeable in regards to their beer. Very good selection of beers, wide range of styles, and the brewer seems to have a penchant for dry hopping, which is not a bad thing at all in my view. Food was delicious, though my only wish would be for larger quantities. Prices were very reasonable and made me want to stay for more. Like I said, you have to visit this place if you’re in the area. It’s still newish but doing well and apparently may start bottling soon which would be great.
