OTTAWA, ON – In the latest in a series of posts spotlighting new and upcoming local breweries, beer news website Ottawa Beer Events has profiled Dominion City Brewing, a start-up that is planning to launch in the Ottawa Valley next year.
According to Josh McJannett – a partner in the brewery with Alex Monk and Andrew Kent – Dominion City will produce “delicious, boundary-pushing beer” that uses as many locally sourced ingredients as possible, including “heirloom organic specialty grains grown and milled right here in the Ottawa Valley.”
McJannett goes on to describe some of the specific beers that Dominion City intends to brew:
We plan to offer an estery, refreshing Farmhouse Blonde Ale and a West Coast-style India Pale Ale loaded with regional hops and balanced with burnt sugar maltiness. We’re also plotting a seasonal beer program and an ever-changing line up of small batch specialty beers, including sours and session ales. We can’t wait to experiment and share new flavours with our customers. To give you a hint, one we’re really excited about right now is our Earl Grey Marmalade Saison–it’s loaded with citrus, honey and ginger and finishes with a delicious mild tea bitterness.
Dominion City Brewing is planned to open in mid-2014.
