Featured Craft Breweries

  • Whiprsnapr Brewing Co.
  • Bells Corners, Ottawa

Whiprsnapr Brewing Co.

Whiprsnapr's play outside, get shit done and have fun -we earn our beer!  We definitely do things a little differently, not just to be different - but because we are different - we're whiprsnapr's!

Whiprsnapr brewing co opened Oct 30, 2014 in Ottawa (Bells Corners), Ontario.  We're on a mission to socialize beer and convert the 95% of Ontarians that still don't drink craft beer.  We have a few 'gateway drug beers' in our arsenal to help pull in those 'macro light lager' drinkers. All of our beers are unique but tasty, extremely drinkable beers – there’s something for everyone!

So after you #earnyourbeer come on in and try a few!  We're located at 14 Bexley Place (unit 106) in Bells Corners, Ottawa.

We’re proud to say that our beer has been craft brewed in Ottawa right from the first batch and we plan to keep it that way. You can only find our Natural Blonde in Ottawa and the surrounding communities. When it comes down to it, we love being part of the local experience.
