Waller St. Brewing Closing Down in Ottawa

OTTAWA, ON – A prohibition-themed brewery and taproom that has been operating for just over six years in Ottawa has announced that it will be permanently closing its doors at the end of the business tomorrow (Friday October 15th).

Waller St. Brewing opened in the summer of 2015 in the basement at 14 Waller Street in Ottawa, below what was then the Lunenburg Pub, and is now Level One Game Pub.

The following statement regarding the closure was posted on the brewery website and social media earlier today:

The team here at Waller St Brewing are very proud of what we have done in the time we have been open. We have always done our best to be innovative and creative with our brews. From sours, to house yeast, to raw ales and more, we have tried to challenge ourselves and our tiny brewery to do the very best.

Over the years we have worked to be a place where people come to gather with friends and celebrate community. We wanted everyone coming through our doors to feel welcomed, at home and accepted in our space. We have raised thousands to support numerous charities and groups to help make a difference in our city.

We are proud of our former brewers, now both head brewers of other breweries in Canada. We are proud of our former staff who continue to work in the industry. We are proud of our current team.

All this makes it harder for us to announce that Friday, October 15th will be the final day that beer is poured at Waller St Brewing.

We will close the doors that night and know in our hearts that we will always love what we did here.

To our customers, from our regulars to those who came to visit us on trips into Ottawa, thank you. From the bottom of our hearts thank you for enjoying our beer over the years. Your support meant the world to us.

To our team, past and present, thank you for helping make Waller St so welcoming to all who set foot in our door or came to our booth at an event.

We raise a glass to all of you.

The owners have also announced that they are selling off the brewhouse, tasting room, and rental agreement for the space and patio for $15,000. For more details, email info@wallerst.ca.
