I was browsing through the Ottawa Business Journal and decided to read yet another news article about the opening of the new Ikea. About a third of the way through the article, I stumbled across this nugget:

On the south side of Iris Street, The Properties Group has a set of buildings. One of the area’s biggest attractors – according to a listing on its website – is its “close proximity” to the Ikea.

The property manager is currently building a 7,000-square-foot brew pub for a private group, which, “fingers crossed,” will be open in the spring, said Fraser Paddison, who handles commercial leasing for the group.

I know it’s not in the neighbourhood, but it’s still BEER!
