Looks like the soon-to-be-opened Mill Street outlet isn’t the only major beer news bubbling in the nation’s capital. If this menu is to believed (and yes, I’m pretty sure we’ve never used a menu to support our reporting before) it looks like international microbrewery chain Les 3 Brasseurs has plans to open a location on the Sparks Street Mall.
You’re probably familiar with Les 3 Brasseurs if you’ve spent any time in Montreal, but they’re actually a French chain of brew pubs that first opened in Lille in the mid-1980s. And for a franchise restaurant, they’ve got some decent suds – they offer a blonde, an amber, a brown, a witbier, and a patriotic brew called La Belle Province.
It looks like they’re planning to open their first Ottawa location this winter at 240 Sparks St., which downtowners will know better as the sprawling C.D. Howe building. All we’re going on right now is the menu (which we found out about over Twitter from the newly-minted Back Lane Cafe) so if you’re in the know, leave us a comment. We’ve also sent an email to Les 3 Brasseurs’ HQ asking for more details; we’ll report back if we hear anything.
