CRAFT Beer Market has its sights set on Eastern Canada as they announced today that they are opening in Ottawa. They have secured a location in the sought after Lansdowne Park development adjacent to TD Place and hope to open later this year or early 2016.
CRAFT Beer Market is a premium casual restaurant with three locations in Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver. Ottawa will be their first foray into Eastern Canada. Located in The Glebe neighbourhood of the city, the restaurant is part of the new Shops at Landsdowne development. The area was one of the city’s first suburbs and is known for great shopping and restaurants.
True to its name, CRAFT offers an extensive selection of beers and serves up everything from local craft breweries, to North American and European brews. Each location has over 100 beers on tap, with Vancouver boasting 140 taps and BC’s largest selection of draft beer. It’s not uncommon find Imperial stouts and sour ales on the menu alongside more well-known styles such as lagers and pilsners.
Corporate Chef Paul McGreevy has created a menu billed as “New North American Classic Cuisine”. “These are timeless comfort dishes and traditional pub favourites mixed with modern fare and innovative combinations,” says McGreevy. “We pride ourselves on making all of our dishes in house from scratch and work with local producers and farmers as much as possible to serve only the freshest and most sustainable ingredients available.”
