When you’re finished hitting the backroads in your Land Rover, make the 80 km drive west to Ottawa where you can celebrate your experience at one of Ottawa’s legendary pubs. Be sure to check out Ottawa’s Mill St. Brew Pub, where Food Columnist Janine MacLean had a chance to try out some good food and cold beer.

MacLean: “The food is very good but the beer is without question the star of the show. Having trouble deciding which type you would like to try first? No problem. You can opt for a “Flight of Beer” or beer sample (6-ounce glasses for $7.12 or 9-ounce for $9.50), allowing you to choose four beers at once.”

Never one to turn down a tough assignment, MacLean didn’t stop there. Her editors asked her to check out another outstanding Ottawa Irish Pub named D’Arcy McGee’s for the St. Patrick’s Day countdown and as you can imagine, she couldn’t wait to get started on her research.

MacLean: “Man cannot live on beer alone, and D’Arcy McGee’s boasts a large menu of freshly cooked Irish pub favourites. On top of their regular menu they also have a seasonal menu called “Eat me I’m Irish” and “Drink me I’m Irish.” These include authentic Irish favourites with a twist — like haddock and shrimp cakes ($13.99), corned beef and cabbage with champ ($14.99), traditional Irish mashed potatoes mixed with green onion, and Colcannon pie ($14.99), another Irish potato mixture with cabbage. There’s also Blarney Chips ($12.99) and Cashel blue cheese and Kilkenny cheese dip ($11.99). Drinks include cocktails made with Irish beer and ciders.”
