VISIT US

Join us at 2265 Robertson Road in beautiful Bells Corners, Ottawa

updated Sept 5, 2021

 

We (all the staff of Kichesippi Beer Co.) promise that we will continue to make every effort to maintain a safe and fun taproom, beer garden and retail beer experience for all visitors, however, we kindly ask that opinions on the vaccine passport program or other restrictions are kept to members of your party, your MP, MPP and/or city councillor.  

Our staff have been working VERY hard to create a welcoming and safe environment throughout the pandemic and recovery.  Regardless of personal opinions, we are not in a position to argue or make exceptions to the governing rules that allow us to keep our doors open.  We truly appreciate the amount of patience guests have shown over the past 18 months and understand that it is not always easy, especially in times of changing restrictions.  There has been significant effort to stay up to date with changing rules, post health measures online, before entry points to the building and throughout the service areas in order to ensure none of the measures come as a surprise on your visit.  With the implementation of the Vaccine passport we will again experience this uncertainty.  Please remember www.kbeer.ca/pages/visit-us is the BEST resource for measures that affect your next visit.  Feel free to email connect@kbeer.ca if you have any questions or feedback on our implementation of COVID health restrictions.
