Ottawa now has a new microbrewery: Broadhead Brewing Company

The Broadhead Brewing Company, founded by Josh Larocque and Jamie White, just received their AGCO license a couple weeks ago and they are now able to sell beer.

They offer three selections of beer currently only available at their brewery:

  • Pale Ale
  • Blonde Ale
  • American Wheat Ale (orange peel & coriander)

We just bought a keg of pale ale and it is very good. If you visit the brewery, you can sample their products and judge the beer for yourself.

Not only are they selling beer, but you can also pick up a kegerator at cost!

For those who don’t know what a kegerator is, it’s a refrigerated kegging system for your beer. You’ll never be able to buy a kegging system so cheap and if you don’t have one and you want one, we recommend you purchase it from Broadhead.

The kegerators hold two ball lock corny kegs, comes with a 5lb co2 tank, and a two spout tower. The refrigerator is Energy Star, so even David Suzuki may give you the thumbs up.

At a total cost with tax of $436.00, it’s a steal! You’ll never see a deal like that in Canada. You’ll even be hard pressed to see a deal like that in the US.

Currently, Broadhead is only offering their beer in ball lock corny kegs, so if want to buy their beer now, you’ll have to have a kegerator that supports a ball lock corny keg or you’ll need to buy one of theirs.

They’ll eventually have other ways to purchase their delicious beer, but we personally like they way they’re aggressively getting their product to the consumer.

The Broadhead Brewing Company is located at 81 Auriga Dr, Unit 27, Ottawa and they are selling 19L of beer for approximately $90.00. Again, a great deal for a quality product.

Congratulations to Kichesippi Beer and Heritage Brewing

It was announced on Friday by the OBJ that Heritage Brewing was purchased by the Kichesippi Beer Company.

Cheers to both.

Before the purchase, Heritage Brewing was producing Kichesippi beer under contract and Kichesippi was selling their kegs to local restaurants.

I’ve had the privilege to try Kichesippi beer and all of Heritage Brewing’s products and they are all great beers.

Both have inspired Hintonbrew.

Hintonbrew beer has arrived in Hintonburg!

Welcome to the official site of Hintonbrew, the official unofficial beer of Hintonburg.

For those who enjoy a Hintonburger at home, you might want to consider washing it down with a Hintonbrew.

Hintonbrew’s flagship product is a real ale and is brewed in the spirit of a true British ale. However, at its heart, it’s a Canadian beer.

Keep watching this site to see how Hintonbrew grows to become the dominant beer of Hintonburg and maybe the World!

Also, we’ll have beer news, commentary, and stuff like that.

Enjoy and keep your eyes and taste buds out for a Hintonbrew.
