If you’ve ever visited the ByWard Market, you’re probably no stranger to the Heart & Crown Irish Pub. Established by two Irish immigrants, Larry Bradley and Pat Kelly, the pub gets its subtle charm from a not-so-subtle commitment to its roots. From the “snug rooms” to the the floor tile, to the bars made of Irish wood, there’s a clear intent on preserving the spirit and culture for anyone who has been to or yet to visit Ireland.
It is time to celebrate another work week done. This weekend is chock full of ways to unwind, but it is a particularly great one for both beer enthusiasts and theatre buffs. Here’s why!

Beau’s community achievements recognized at the United Way’s Community Builder of the Year Awards Gala
Breweries are amazing community partners. Yet even among that esteemed company, Beau’s All Natural Brewery has been setting the standard for more than a decade. On May 18, they were recognized by United Way Ottawa, winning this Community Builder Award. It’s really the perfect award for a company that has always paid it forward the support they have received from their hometown of Vankleek Hill, their greater Ottawa community and the brewing industry.

Happy weekend, Ottawa. Once again, the city has plenty on offer as we cruise to the end of May.
