Le Bop in Hull will be transformed into a brasserie over the next few months as well.

With all of the microbreweries and brew pubs that have popped up in Ottawa in the past few years (Kitchissippi, Beyond the Pale, Broadhead, Big Rig, Lowertown Brewery, Clocktower, Mill Street, Bicycle Craft, Dominion City, Brasseurs du Temps, 3 Brasseurs etc.) I'm wondering why the city isn't heavily promoting itself as a beer destination. It can certainly hold its own with anywhere in Canada.

That type of promotion seems to work for this San Diego suburb:

Craft beer is a growing trend in North America. I'm not sure whether it's hit its pique just yet though.

No question that it is growing everywhere. But Ottawa is definitely a hotspot.

Maybe I am just dreaming of an Ottawa Tourism ad that doesn't focus on the Parliament Buildings and insert museum here.

Ottawa Tourism does feature craft breweries:

They've got great adverts that aren't really focused on Parliament Hill, there's some beer flowing at 0:46

It's kind of hard since breweries all over the city, but if we had to pick one district, it would likely be Sparks.
