FESTIVAL – The idea of consuming litres of alcohol in 72h would never cross my mind or take my fancy, unless it’s Oktoberfest season ! Come the falling of leaves and the change in colour of the city, Oktoberfest is a last resort to celebrate the few warmer days left. Originating from Germany, Oktoberfest has now spread its pints worldwide, encouraging beer consumption to its limits. If your gut can absorb a sickly amount of beer, this Oktoberfest celebration in Montreal will be perfect for you. This year, “Les Jardineries” and the “Independent Brewpubs of Montreal” are joining forces to offer Montrealers an Oktoberfest to remember. This will be the third year the event is hosted, offering a much wider variety of beers. Some of the best micro-breweries in Quebec and Montreal will be at the event, offering tastings from some of their signature beers. This includes Benelux, Isle de Garde, Espace Public, La Succrusale, Le Cheval Blanc, and Boswell Brewery. The event will be hosted from September 27th until September 29th with free entry and free activities for all. This year’s Oktoberfest will include a mini-putt, bowling and ping-pong area as well as a lounge area with deck chairs and hamacs. Click below for more information about the upcoming event.
