Ottawa Senators

Brewed Just Right: Big Rig Kitchen and Brewery

Ottawa Senators defenseman Chris Phillips hanging out in Big Rig’s brewery.

Ottawa Senators defenseman Chris Phillips opened up Big Rig Kitchen and Brewery this past summer and it has become a must-visit spot for exceptional pub fare and craft beer. In the kitchen, staples such as nachos get a twist with pulled chicken. In the brewery five mainstay beers, including their flagship Big Rig Gold, are complimented with seasonal brews that change with the weather. Together, they make for one excellent pairing. Cheers!

Tuesday, Oct. 11. With a new season comes new hope as the Ottawa Senators introduce a batch of fresh young faces to the line-up, just in time for the 20th anniversary of the modern franchise. Led by captain Daniel Alfredsson and superstar Jason Spezza, the team will be looking to make their mark this year. With new coach Paul MacLean behind the bench, goalie Craig Anderson between the posts, and All-Star Erik Karlsson on the ice, you’re definitely going to want to catch a game this season. We suggest their first regular season home game, which sees the Sens face off against the Minnesota Wild (also know as Dany Heatley’s new team), meaning it’s going to be one that really gets the fans going. All together now: Go Sens go!
