OTTAWA, ON – The Capital Pint column on the website of Ottawa Magazine reports that a new brewery is getting set to open in Stittsville, a small suburban community in the west end of Ottawa.
Covered Bridge Brewing is being launched and operated by John VanDyk, a homebrewer who leverages his years of training and working as a biochemist in his brewing.
According to the article, VanDyk will be brewing on a recently delivered 1,200 litre system, and is planning a line-up of five beers including The Dirty Blonde blonde ale; The Amber Rose amber ale; MSB (brown ale); Eternally Hoptimistic American pale ale; and Double-Double sweet stout.
Renovations are underway at the brewery location (6-119 Iber Road, Stittsville), where VanDyk says he is “going to have a small storefront, sell growlers, and might even have a tasting room so we can sell by the pint. But our main push will be getting into restaurants and bars.”
