I stopped in at Stray Dog Brewing Company in Orleans, Ontario, Canada. The flight of Pale Ale, California Common and two IPAs was good. The Double IPA was also good. The beer that I enjoyed the most was the Oatmeal Stout.
The staff were really friendly. They were setting up for a small local event taking place in the brewery later in the evening. And, the brewery dog was very friendly to all people in the taproom.
I stopped in at Dominion City Brewing Company in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I enjoyed the Sunsplit IPA – it’s like sunshine in a glass. Delicious. Citrusy. Perfect Hazy IPA.
I stopped in at Bicycle Craft Brewery in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I was impressed with their beers. From the flight I enjoyed, Frequency APA has a tropical hoppy flavor, Velocipede IPA is a bit grapefruity, and I always love a Wee Heavy and Mr Templeton’s did not disappoint with caramelly and biscuit flavors. My friend’s flight included On the Lam IPA with mango and pineapple flavors. My son-in-law would love this hazy IPA. Delicious beers. Great people. Nice atmosphere. Cool logo – bought t-shirts to bring home.
I stopped in at Flora Hall Brewing in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It was late. I tried the English Ordinary Bitter. So nice. So mild. So drinkable. What a perfect way to bring the day to a close. Relaxing with this and some maple popcorn and nuts was just what I was hoping for. Also tried Lemondrop and Oatmeal Stout.
These were also both very good. What a cool neighborhood vibe! Great place to stop!
I stopped in at 3 Brewers in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada for dinner and a beer. reviewing the menu I was torn between the harvest salad and the sausage and sauerkraut. I went with the sausage and sauerkraut. So delicious. Three sausages plus wonderful sauerkraut. Delicious! For beer i went with the Honey Drop Ale which was slightly sweet from local honey and a very flavorful ale. Great beer and great food – made for perfect pairing.
I stopped in at Waller Street Brewing after a 4 mile run along the river in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I felt justified in trying two beers having just run. Clearly I tried the Blindside ESB and loved it. I also tried the Scotch River Sour and enjoyed that as well. I loved the basement location. The kind of place I’d enjoy hanging out if at home. Hope to be back soon.
I stopped in at Beyond the Pale Brewing in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Not only did I try a couple of beers, I also enjoyed the Jerk Chicken Taco which was delicious. The Pink Fuzz Grapefruit Zest Wheat is a delicious beer. I love grapefruit and this did not disappoint without being too grapefruity. I also enjoyed The Rye Guy Rye IPA which was a nice pairing with the taco. I ended with The Darkness Oatmeal Stout. All great beers.
I stopped in at Kichesippi Beer Company in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada to try their beer. They have so many styles which they do a great job of brewing. Their friendly staff let me taste just about everything in the cooler. WOW! I’ll cover two beers here. First, the 1855 is an awesome amber – malty with a bite at the end. Easy to drink and delicious. Second, the Bristol Stout is so delicious that it’s the one I bought a can of to bring back to my hotel to enjoy late at night when catching up on work. The stout is rich with flavors of coffee and chocolate and luscious sweetness. Great beers from a great brewery.
I stopped in at Broadhead Brewing Company in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada for a beer. There never seems to be enough ESBs for those of us who enjoy them. So, naturally, I tried the Hammer and Tongs ESB. Fabulous! If I weren’t traveling by plane I would have grabbed some to take home. Hope I make it back to Ottawa and can stop in again. Proximity to the airport makes that pretty easy.
I stopped in at Tooth and Nail Brewing Company in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada for a late beer. I had trouble deciding so tried small pours of Vim and Vigor Pilsner (delicious; renewed my faith in pilsner), Tenacity Pale Ale ( a solid pale), and Red Letter Day IPA (certainly a nice IPA). I enjoyed all of the beers.
