Lowertown Brewery is a Canadian comfort fare served with craft beer & cocktails in casual digs with a spacious patio. Lowertown is unmistakably a Canadian brewery. Lowertown is unique because they occasionally have a small bonfire on their patio. Another cool thing is that they have a small pinball arcade! If you’re looking for food, you’ll find Canadian classics such as poutine and other grilled treats. Lowertown’s atmosphere is rounded out by weekly live music, stand-up comedy, and people looking to spend an enjoyable evening with like-minded individuals. The prices range from moderate to high. It is a local microbrewery with unique beers and food pairings that cannot be beaten. Lowertown brewery, located in Ottawa’s Byward Market, is the newest addition to the Ontario craft beer market.
You would not want to miss what they are brewing next! They serve excellent comfort food and delicious cocktails. Lowertown Brewery first opened its doors in June 2014. It has an open kitchen filled with the tantalizing aromas of succulent ribs, brisket, and chicken slow-cooking in our in-house smoker. The interior’s craft aesthetics and Lowertown feel are matched by their patio. It offers all-day sun for those who prefer to enjoy their craft beer and amazing sandwiches in the fresh Ottawa air, matching the interior’s craft aesthetics and Lowertown feels. We stopped in here one sunny Ottawa afternoon for an early dinner. The menu was not extensive, offering a reasonably typical pub fare selection. The early evening crowd was a mix of twenty-somethings, thirty-something birthday drinks get-together, business people and tourists.
We landed a little on the older side of the clientele. After looking over the menu, we almost gave it a pass. But we settled on the patio, and when a cold pint of cider arrived, we decided to order dinner. My husband ordered the Montreal smoked meat sandwich. I ordered the smoked salmon sandwich. For both, there were no issues substituting the fries for a kale salad on the side. Glad we stayed! When the sandwiches arrived, we were treated to fresh multigrain ciabatta buns (delicious!) filled with beautiful meats. The Montreal smoked sandwich was excellent – everything you could hope for. The salmon was excellent! We both loved this! The bun contained a large filet of salmon, cooked moist and tender with a smoky finish! Perfect! The salad was a great complement. The price was reasonable for the quality and quantity of food.
