Belgian Table Beer release day!

Our recent releases have had roots in Norway (our Kveik Pale Ale), and in Germany (our Strawberry Rhubarb Gose), and now we continue our European tour! Our newest release is a Belgian Table Beer. It’s our version of a classic working-person’s beer, long favoured by farmers and brewers alike as a sessionable brew after a long day at work. With coriander, orange peel and Belgian Ardennes yeast, it is rich in flavour and very approachable (4.5 ABV and 25 IBU). You might think of it as the Belgian mate of our award-winning English Ordinary Bitter! To mark the release and complement the new...

Post #11: Will Ottawa have its own Society of Beer Drinking Ladies?

The Society of Beer Drinking Ladies held its first Ottawa “bevy” — think of a mini beer festival — on Saturday, April 14, at the All Saints Event Centre. Flora Hall Brewing was there with three of our beers, and the entire event was a tremendous success. Tickets sold out quickly. The SOBDL began in 2014 when Erica Campbell, who was working at Black Oak Brewery at the time,  approached four lady pals with an idea “to host a sort of secret society with only women in one of our apartments of mostly beer industry women, do a bottle share and hang out, network without guys around.” We...

Let's be clear right away: we love love and we love romance, we can just do without the tackier parts of Valentine's Day. So we made a short video that gets our feelings across, while still making people feel welcome at Flora Hall on Feb. 14. At Flora Hall, Valentine's is all about love, and fun, and beer.

Post #9: Lemmy, charity, and the first Proust Beer Questionnaire!

Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Flora Hall Proust Beer Questionnaire, where interesting people give fascinating answers to stimulating questions, and where adjectives abound (apparently)! We kick off this new feature with guest answerer Chris Wizzerd, who is organizing, and will also perform in, the “Lemmy re-revisited” fundraising show on Jan. 27 at the House of Targ. A half-dozen local bands will rawk out to Motorhead songs (and a couple from Hawkwind) in memory of the late, incomparable Lemmy. Funds raised go to the Phoebe Rose Rocks Foundation for research in childhood cancer....

Post #7: A radio tour of Flora Hall

Radio might not seem the ideal medium to tour a new building, but it’s very effective when done right. CBC Ottawa’s Jessa Runciman did an excellent job when she popped in to hang out with Dave the boss! Click on the link below to hear Jessa’s tour.
