Kichesippi Beer is a family owned business, brewing in Ottawa, Ontario.
The question we get asked the most is; a Cool name, what does it mean?
Kichesippi is a word meaning "The Great River". Prior to 1855, when the City of Ottawa was founded, the Ottawa River was known as the Kichesippi. The river has consistently been an integral part of the history of Ottawa and Eastern Ontario.
We have been involved with the beer industry since 1995 in many different capacities. Working with breweries in Halifax, Toronto and Guelph introduced us to array of beer from around the world. Everything from British Columbia craft beer, to brands from Belgium, Germany and Japan; have fuelled our passion for great beer.

For us, this question sums up a huge part of what we are all about. When someone wants to try your local beer, they want to experience something that is unique to the community.
Our beer has been craft brewed in Ottawa right from the first batch. Our Natural Blonde can only be found in Ottawa and the surrounding communities. For us, this is how we strive to be part of the local experience.
