Ottawa Kitchener/Waterloo
Ashton Brewing Co.
13 Old Mill Rd, Ottawa, ON K0A 1B0

Art Hodgins is the man behind over 20 pubs including Quinn's, Patty's Pub, and of course, The Ashton Brewing Company. It's one of the only breweries in the Ottawa area to still use open fermentation, which gets you the opportunity to see the krausen in all its splendour.  Their patio, their staff, and some creative parking spaces make this location a must-see. Ashton Brewing Company is featured regularly on our Western Libations trip.
