Servus! (Greetings friends!)
Braumeister Brewing Co. is a Bavarian-inspired craft brewery with a taproom and garden. Offering a new experience for beer lovers in and around the Nation’s capital, Braumeister is the place to enjoy quality beer and quality conversation.
The idea for Braumeister Brewing Co. first emerged while enjoying a drink during December of 2013, in arguably the best beer garden in Austria: Augustiner Bräu. Our founder, Rohit, had moved to Austria three months earlier to teach high school science. He quickly developed an appreciation for all the region has to offer, including some of the best beer in the world.
Rohit soon took to the tradition of socializing after work at the local beer garden. New to the country, he appreciated the friendly and welcoming community he found there. A large, stone wall surrounded the garden, which blocked out the noise of the city. Long tables, nestled among large chestnut trees, made it easy to make new friends every time he went. And the beer was always as crisp and refreshing as the first day he tried it.
When his parents came to visit in 2013, Rohit knew he had to bring them to his favourite beer garden, Augustiner Bräu. They enjoyed it so much that they went back the next night. They agreed there was something almost Canadian about the welcoming atmosphere. Yet, they lamented, there was nothing quite like it back in Ottawa. And so the idea of Braumeister Brewing Co. was born.
After a few years, Rohit made the move back to Ottawa, bringing his passion for beer with him. Ready to turn his dream of Braumeister into reality, he surrounded himself with experienced individuals in the industry. Their goal is to provide you with an authentic Bavarian experience right in your own backyard.
Bavarian beers have been brewed for centuries with the same great care and attention to detail. The result is a consistently delicious beer that continues to impress. Following traditional brewing practices, Braumeister provides a consistent brew of some of the finest European beer styles, locally.

Rohit has spent the last decade travelling the world, teaching kids about science. He first moved around Australia and England, before finally making Salzburg, Austria his home in 2013. Rohit has been an avid homebrewer for several years, combining his love for science with his love for beer. His appreciation for brewing only deepened while in Austria, where centuries of dedication to the craft have resulted in some of the best beers in the world. In 2017, Rohit moved back to his hometown of Ottawa, determined to bring back a part of the Bavarian region that he loves so much. Through Braumeister Brewing Co., his hope is to bring the friendly, welcoming beer culture of Europe to the beer-loving people of the Lanark County and Ottawa region.
