THE MI­CRO­BRE­WE­RIES THINGS ARE BREWING IN QUÉ­BEC!

It’s now a well-known fact that when it comes to beer ma­king, Qué­be­cers are in high gear! Mi­cro­bre­we­ries and hop pro­du­cers have pro­li­fe­ra­ted ex­po­nen­tial­ly in the last 25 years. Qué­bec is now home to more than 150 mi­cro­bre­we­ries and over 30 hop pro­du­cers of­fe­ring high-qua­li­ty pro­ducts. We’ve come a long way since the tra­di­tio­nal al­co­ho­lic spruce beer made by the ear­ly set­tlers! Bre­wed for the most part using clas­sic French, Bel­gian and Bri­tish tech­niques, Qué­bec beers stand out from the ma­jo­ri­ty of U.S. beers through their long fer­men­ta­tion. La­ger, Pil­se­ner, por­ters, stouts and white beers are just a few examples of the ma­ny, ma­ny types of beers bre­wed in Qué­bec. Some beers such as Don de Dieu by Uni­broue, La Cor­ri­veau by the Mi­cro­bras­se­rie Le Bil­bo­quet, L'Hé­ris­son-bras­sin spe­cial by the Mi­cro­bras­se­rie Le Trou du diable, Kirke by the Mi­cro­bras­se­rie Cor­saire, Ce­ci n'est pas une Gueuze by the Mi­cro­bras­se­rie Les Trois Mous­que­taires even ear­ned pres­ti­gious prizes at the World Beer Awards held in Lon­don in 2017. Take part in one of Qué­bec’s ma­ny beer fes­ti­vals and taste the wide va­rie­ty of brews avai­lable. En­joy the li­ve­ly, friend­ly at­mos­phere and meet pro­du­cers who will be de­ligh­ted to ans­wer your ques­tions and share their ex­per­tise. What’s more, you can learn all about the brewing trade by vi­si­ting and tou­ring cer­tain brewing com­pa­nies. Road trips such as the “beer routes” run­ning through the Eastern Townships and eastern Qué­bec are chock-full of dis­co­ve­ries. Broue-Tours al­so of­fers gui­ded tours of Qué­bec Ci­ty’s craft bre­we­ries. Learn all about the pro­duc­tion pro­cesses and their his­to­ry and taste the brews.
