Located in the heart of the vibrant Byward Market in Ottawa, be sure to stop by Lowertown Brewery on your next visit for some craft beer and comfort food. With a jam packed menu of delicious sandwiches and freshly made sides, this brewery offers more to its customers than just a unique and seasonal selection of beer. During my last visit to Ottawa, I dropped by to learn more about their delicious flight of beers with the help of their brewmaster Adam Pines.
We began the tasting with the LOWERTOWN LAGER. Brewed in the style of the German Lager, this refreshing and light well-balanced beer. Inspired by what makes craft beer so in demand today, the LOWERTOWN PALE ALE is perfectly balanced with malt and hops, giving it a nice round finish. If you’re looking for a refreshing red wheat beer, than look no further than the LOWERTOWN RED FIFE that is made with its true amber colour and made with three types of wheat give this beer a light bitterness and a smooth finish. For a lighter finish, the LOWERTOWN KRYSTAL WEIZEN is a straw coloured filter wheat beer made from a soft grain flavour and served with a slice of orange.
And last, but defiantly not least, just in time for those hot summer days, Lowertown Brewery has created a light and refreshing LOWERTOWN APRICOT WHEAT to add to their premium roster of beers that is perfect for enjoying on a patio. My personal favourite, this carbonated beer has a smooth and light fruity finish to satisfy beer drinks with the perfect blend of malt and apricot.
