How it all started.

Brew Donkey was started to help get locals to the makers of the beer they love and that is exactly what it still does. The year before Brew Donkey opened, Brad Campeau started drinking local beer instead of macro beer. 4 months later he noticed that a brewery in Ottawa was hiring an events manager. A bulb went off. He applied for the job and started dreaming of working in the beer industry.

He did not get the job, or even an interview.

A bit disappointed but a lot motivated, he decided that he wanted to work in the industry and would try to build his way in.

He spent a few months talking to many breweries in Ottawa and trying to figure out what they would want from a tour company visiting them. Brew Donkey’s first tour hit the road in October 2013 and the touring has not stopped since.   

Whether you’re already a craft warrior or a new recruit to drinking local, these tours have something for you. If you enjoy good times, great beers, and exploring your city with friends, Brew Donkey tours are waiting for you. Mount Up!
