Food + Drink Roundup
▪️Broadhead Beer’s all day happy hour is the best part of Wednesday. Pay only $6 for a pint from any of the 12 taps in the taproom. That means you can choose from eight classic beers from amber ales to stouts, with lagers and NEIPAs in between, and seasonal specials including the 174 Taproom Series. Broadhead’s taproom is open from noon to 8:00pm at 1680 Vimont Art Unit 106, Orléans.
▪️It’s stout week at Beyond the Pale. With its chocolate and coffee flavours, we think a can of Dublin or Nuthin’ Dry Irish Stout would go down well on Saint Patrick’s Day tomorrow. 108 City Centre.
▪️Martha is proud to be a fruity beer lover. Freedom Machine Cherry Pale Ale by Bicycle Craft Brewery was brewed in celebration of International Women’s Day, and was inspired by the suffragette name for the bicycle. The brewery says this fine beer features cherry, citrus, and tropical fruit flavours. 12-850 Industrial Avenue.
▪️It’s Weiner Wednesday at Big Rig Brewery so head there for a hot dog and a fine beer lunch. 103 Schneider Road.
▪️Launching Thursday March 17th, Nemesis IPA by Brasserie Du Bas is described by the brewery as a “slightly beefier side of the style” and very hoppy and creamy. You can order from 11:00am tomorrow and pick up in Gatineau from Tuesday to Sunday. 455 bowl. de la Gappe, Local 103, Gatineau.
▪️Listen to Afraid of Grace and The Juice live at Conspiracy Theory from 8:00pm to 11:30pm on Saint Patrick’s Day. The event's menu highlights will include Beer Battered Fish and Chips and The Order of St Patrick Irish Red beer, a ruby red with the notes of a stout. 2172 Robertson Road, Bells Corners.
▪️Tickets are selling out for Overflow Brewing’s Saint Patrick’s Day Party, featuring The East Coast Experience live. Tickets $20.
▪️Overflow’s Concert in Support of Ukraine on March 25th featuring Sacred Blue will raise money for the UCC-CUF Ukraine Humaanitarian Appeal. Tickets cost $15.
▪️The Citizen recommends three great ramen noodle joints: Paper Tiger, Ramen Isshin, and Akachan.
▪️PlantX, the new veggie-only grocery inside the Bay at Rideau Centre, promises same-day delivery across Ottawa. We're betting that they don't yet realize Ottawa includes Orléans and West Carleton.
▪️The Ottawa Pizza Podcast has launched, with the first episode showing love to the Ottawa-style pizza: ‘it usually hails from a Lebanese-owned place, where the pizza has a sweeter sauce, you get garlic sauce on the side, and you could also order delicious shawarma or poutine at the same time.’ We've added it to our curated list of Ottawa podcasts.
▪️Ottawa Road Trips wants to get you out to five out-of-town coffee shops: Cardinal Café + Shop, Sharbot Lake, Fifth Chute Coffee, Eganville, Vanilla Beans Café and Creamery, Westport, Oh-el-la Café, Calabogie, and Bubba & Bugs Coffee Bar, Kemptville
▪️Like many businesses, Riverwood accoustics is facing rising supply and manufacturing costs. So, if you’ve been thinking about purchasing one of their locally manufactured, absolutely stunning Hudson or Madawaska speakers, which like all Riverwood products are crafted from reclaimed logs found at the bottom of the Ottawa River, now is the time. Head to their website before May 1st when the price will increase from $799 to $899 CAD. #supportlocal
