Every year many volunteers help make the Beyond the Pale Special Events the success that they are. Without the hard work and dedication of the volunteer team this event would not happen. Our Volunteer Handbook is your guide to life as a volunteer!


Brewing beers for locals in the heart of Ottawa since 2012. Our spacious Taproom and patio are perfect for enjoying one of 16 beautifully crafted beers poured on tap. Due to its location and space, we have become a hub for special events, be it art shows, music festivals, or just a giant party. The fun doesn’t stop there as we also host events around the city, from tap takeovers to beer festivals. A lot is going on and we need your help to make them amazing!
