2016-10-01. The space sort of feels like a polished Anglophone Ottawa echo of Brasseurs du Temp in many ways - the view of the river from the men’s room being a big one of them, the relatively large open areas being another. We came for brunch/lunch with friends and had a nice meal together. My Brewer’s Breakfast platter was very tasty and a huge portion - to the point of being overcrowded on the plate actually, resulting in a tragic loss of bacon at one point. Tap list has a good range of styles of their own beers. The glassed in tanks in the main area seem like a cramped work area for the brewer but make for a nice centrepiece to the venue. Overall a decent spot and enjoyable, but if you are not planning on eating there are more interesting tap lists in town. Location is a plus, we walked along the waterfront from the Parliament buildings.
Went there in September 2014 on a friday evening. Beautiful place located in an old stone mansion close to Outaouais River, 10 min away from Ottawa’s downtown. Beautiful inside too. Great mix of rustic and modern decorations. Place was packed and we were sit at the bar. The waiter didn’t say a word in French (that’s a major problem in Ottawa...) but was helpful and gave us a good service. Beer selection is all-around/large-public/easy-to-drink brewer’s beers. We had a really decent meal with their pub style menu. Not a must stop in Ottawa but a good place for a meal with a cold brew.
Restaurant located right off the border of QC/ON beside the river in an old brick house. The place was well renovated. Good choice of house beer (which are not bad) and full pub style menu which is OK. Prices are fair for location. Waiter was nice and helpful. Not bad but not great either.
Une belle brasserie toute en pierre grise, non loin de la rivière des Outaouais, avec un personnel charmant mais pas toujours bilingue (à 300m de Gatineau ce serait un atout). La liste des bières esf correcte, rien d’impressionnant, mais la petite boutique est intéressante, et il y a possibilité de trouver quelque chose pour tous les goûts. Pas un incontournable de l’est ontarien, mais définitivement un choix satisfaisant.
This is truly a hard place to rate. Located close to the Ottawa River, within walking distance from the Parliament and other tourist attractions, it is a modern pub-cum-restaurant. I visited it on an early Tuesday evening and it was absolutely packed. The staff are neither friendly nor quick to serve but some of them know something about their beer. The selection includes several taps of own produce, mostly quite satisfactory. Not very expensive, especially for the generous flights, but I do not feel like going there again. Been there, done that. Did not try the food, but it looked okay. There is a beer store in one of the rooms, offering both bottled beer from the brewpub and some ususal merchandise (T-shirts, mugs, etc.)
Pleasant old stone building in a prime location. It’s large inside and clearly designed to cater to large groups, so don’t expect anything intimate here. I settled with a flight of beers but skipped on eating. Check out the seasonal taps for something a little more interesting.
Located in a large stone building not far from the government area. Plenty of free parking. Huge inside, this place can handle crowds. Bartender was okay but not terribly helpful. Beers a little pricy, but not terrible. Of the four tried, they ranged from meh to outstanding. Did not try the food. Overall a decent stop.
Beautiful old buiilding located in a picturesque nook in the city of Ottawa. Ambiance is loud, but very alive feeling. All beers are their own. Selection is decent, and usually they have seasonals, so you have a choice of close to a dozen beers. Menu needs more greens. It’s like they are allergic to salads and vegetables in that place. Nothing on the menu is particularly note-worthy, but it is edible, if over priced. We go occassionally, but the place does not warrant the tag of "regular hangout" at all.
