City Beers Express
This tour is a slightly condensed version of our full City Beers tour. It includes behind the scenes tours and ample samples of three craft breweries in the core of Ottawa's brewing scene.

Hop aboard the bus for an afternoon of fun and beer. This 4-5 hour tour will take you to 3 (or more, depending on time) local Ottawa craft breweries for a tour and tasting. Take the time to learn about the ingredients and beer making process, then belly up to the bar for a selection of samples at each of the stops.

What to Expect

On this 4-5 hour bus tour, you'll be inundated with all things craft beer in Ottawa. Choose between the City Beers Plus tour or the City Beers Express tour. The trip starts with a beer making education session showing off some of the integral ingredients required for making beer. At each stop (locations vary by week), you will be sampled through a curated collection of beers from each location.

During that visit, each brewery staff or owner will guide you through their personal and professional experience building a craft beer business in Ottawa's ever expanding craft beer scene. Hear all about what they did right, did wrong, and why they still love the scene. Asking hard questions is encouraged and might just get you more beer!

Get to know Ottawa's thriving beer scene and an inside look at how beer is made. This trip starts at a central meeting location in the Glebe part of Ottawa. Tour transportation is on a school style bus (because beer and school buses are just fun right?)

Westend Libations Express Tour

Another amazing tour. This was my third tour with them. The guide(Alexi) was great as usual. You need 5 key ingredients for a successful tour : organization, knowledge, friendliness, humour and lastly love (inside joke)

Great work outing idea!

It was well organized and executed! Loved getting to go to the smaller breweries in Ottawa that we didn't even know existed. Guides were knowledgeable and a lot of fun!

Hey D'Arcy, Glad to hear you had a good time on the tour! With so many breweries in the area, it's tough to choose which ones to go to. Cheers and thanks for joining us on a Brew Donkey tour!

A good time

This is my third tour with BD in about four years. They're a well-oiled machine at this point, and they've made tweaks along the way. We're spoiled in Ottawa to have so many craft breweries and even to just have a company like BD is...More
