Aren’t sausage puns the wurst? Beer and sausages: a perfect pairing. Below I’d like to call attention to two venues in Ottawa’s east end where you can indulge your palate with these two German delicacies. Beechwood’s newly opened Clarkstown Kitchen and Bar (formerly El Mason) has modernized the historical beer and sausage marriage and taken it to the next level with craft beer and artisinal sausages. The out-of-this-world in-house sausage creations include Lamb & Rosemary, Pork Cilantro & Citrus, Beef Short-rib & Orange and Chicken Lemongrass. They are all bangin’ bangers, there’s no wrong choice here. Locals like Dominion City, Kichisippi and Big Rig are among the 20+ craft beers available... | Continue reading article

Friday night was a very significant and special occasion on Albert Island: when Arboretum Festival began welcoming people onto the grounds, it was the first time the island had been used for a public event in over 200 years. An organizer from Arboretum took to the main stage before the performances to tell the crowd that the island they were standing on is part of unceded Algonquin First Nations territory and to highlight that they were honored to be there. It was clear early on that it was going to... | Continue reading article
