Beyond The Pale Brewing Company

Beyond the Pale Brewing Company, a craft brewery in Ottawa, started in late 2012. It was envisioned as a part time operation in a 1000 square foot facility near the Parkdale Market, but, after its first weekend of sales, it became a full time venture for its three partners. The brewery now occupies about 15000 square feet and has 40,500 L of fermenting capacity,‎ which can produce about 600,000 L per year of salable beer (after the angels share). It has a Production Facility, Bottle Shop and Tap Room located near downtown Ottawa at 250 City Centre Drive. BTP has produced over 250 different beers in its 5 years of operation and is known for its high quality, diverse line up of traditional and experimental beers. Many of its beers are truly "beyond the pale".
