OTTAWA, ON – Beer blog Ottawa Beer Events reports that the ever-growing craft brewing community in the Capital Region will soon have another member, with the opening later this year of Bicycle Craft Brewery.
Founded by the husband and wife team of Fariborz and Laura Behzadi, Bicycle will be a “traditional, all grain, small batch brewery” with a distinctive line-up of beers, as Fariborz describes:
We will have 4 flagship brews, including our hoppy and bitter Velocipede IPA and our bitter-sweet and smokey Abyss Chocolate Stout. Our session ale, Belle River Blonde, is refreshing and easy on the palate, while our Base Camp Oatmeal Porter is nutty and smooth and will remind you of the comforts of base camp. We will also offer a variety of limited edition and seasonal brews that use local ingredients including a Pumpkin Spice Ale, a Christmas Ale and a colourful Raspberry Wheat Ale. A unique feature of our brewery is that Laura will be taking an active part in the brew process and will also feature special brews of her own, including one that will be released on International Women’s Day every year.
The Behzadis are aiming to be open by late summer or early fall, and will offer on-site sampling and retail sales at the brewery, which will be located at 850 Industrial Avenue, Unit 12 in Ottawa.
