Quickly becoming the unofficial kickoff to summer in the east end, the Orleans Craft Beer Festival is back this weekend for its fourth instalment. Voted Ottawa’s favourite Craft Beer Festival in Faces Magazines’s awards, organizers have raised the bar (so to speak) with the number of local breweries and distillers at this year’s edition.

The local beer scene keeps getting bigger and better.
It’s been a wild year, and the industry shows no sign of slowing down.
