Contract Breweries (breweries that hire another brewery to produce their beer)

  • B-Side Brewing Label (Brews out of Beau’s – “B-Side Brewing Label is like a record label, for beer. We sign craft brewer “artists” who we respect and believe are making great beer to our brewing label.”)

Where to Buy Beer

Beer can only be purchased at The Beer Store (a privately owned chain of retail outlets), the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (a provincial Crown corporation), breweries and brew pubs.  Most of Ottawa’s breweries sell their beer in refillable growlers.

There are a few grocery stores in the Ottawa area that now sell 6 packs of beer:

  • Farm Boy, 2030 Tenth Line in Orleans.
  • Sobeys, 193 Metcalfe Street.
  • Loblaws, 1980 Baseline Road.
  • Metro, 3201 Strandherd Drive in Nepean.
  • Real Canadian Superstore, 760 Eagleson Road.
  • Sobeys, 700 Terry Fox Drive in Kanata.
  • Sobeys, 840 March Road in Kanata.
  • Independent, 1251 Main Street, Stittsville.

In Quebec beer can be bought at the Société des alcools du Quebec (a provincial Crown corporation), breweries, brew pubs and privately owned stores.  Since Ottawa’s so close to some great Quebec beer stores it’s worth the drive to go bottle shopping.  Here are some of our favourite stops:
