From the meetup.com site:
If you feel like getting out on a local tour, join Ottawa Food and Beverage. Our first event is a Microbrewery Tour, Saturday August 24 from 1:30-6:30pm. For $30 you will taste close to 24 locally brewed beers. The tour visits 4 Microbreweries, where there are brewery tours, talks, a museum and of course. Tastings!
Hop on the school bus at Parliament Hill. Don't worry about driving or expensive taxi rides.
Take the tour and just enjoy.
(need 25 members signed up by August 19th to commence)
