FORESTERS FALLS, ON – The Upper Ottawa Valley has long been a popular destination for white water rafting aficionados, and now three men who work as guides in that industry are hoping that their new venture will prove equally popular with tourists and residents alike.
Whitewater Brewing has been in planning since late 2011, and started offering beer to the public earlier this month. Located at the corner of Fletcher Road and Grants Settlement Road near the village of Foresters Falls, approximately 90 minutes northwest of Ottawa, Whitewater has launched with four flagship brands – Farmer’s Daughter Blonde Ale, Whistling Paddler English Style Ale, Class V IPA, and Midnight Oatmeal Stout.
Whitewater beers are currently available to customers at Wilderness Tours Rafting, and at occasional special events in the area. Growler sales and draught availability in local bars and restaurants are planned to be launched soon, and the partners also hope to open a brewpub adjacent to the brewery in the future.
