A private, personalized beer tour of Ottawa with your own DD
Ottawa is more than just monuments, scenic parkways, and politics. Ottawa's night life features an incredible variety of festivals, theaters, clubs and pubs. After you have done the usual tourist stuff in Ottawa, later you may want to indulge in a more relaxed form of entertainment.
To the point: I know beer, and I can take your on a fantastic tour of Ottawa's finest purveyors of fine brews. The most important factor in the Capital Pub Crawl tour, is I will be your designated driver. The Crawl will include visits to as many of beer places as you wish. Check out their websites so you can do a bit of research in advance, then let me tailor the tour to your specific wants.
Some suggestions: Pub Italia (huge variety, including Westvleteran), The Black Tomato (assorted local craft beers), The Lafayette (very old school), the Clock Tower, Waller St, Big Rig, Mill St Brewpub, (all Brew-on-premises), in nearby Gatineau, the Brasseurs du Temps (BOP, nightclub).
This will vary according to how much time you wish to spend. The pub scene in Ottawa is always growing, so I will tailor the tour to fit the time we have. And we will hit the spots you prefer, either the well established popular sites, or the new hidden gems, or some of each.

I will be your designated driver, taking you to and from the various establishments. As DD, I will be abstaining, but can give you informed recommendations on what to try at each place. I will also give a guided tour of all the sites on the routes we travel.

None of the establishment we will visit have a cover charge. Bring enough $ for your tastings. As a guideline, a pint of homebrew at the Clocktower costs $7.00
