This Thursday Renee and I enjoyed an afternoon at the Montreal Beer Festival (Mondial de la bière 2012). Running till Sunday June 10th, if you’re in Montreal and enjoy beer this is certainly worth a look.
Entry is free, beer tastings cost between $2-$5 (in $1 coupons), you can bring your own beer glass or you can buy one there (glass is $9, branded plastic cup is $4). Who would buy a branded plastic cup for $4? The glass is certainly a nice souvenir, but a plastic cup… I think it’s nice that they let you bring your own glass though, many beer festivals wouldn’t allow this.
The event is held underground at Place Bonaventure and the Hilton Hotel.
Underground? A beer festival in the summer. Although it is only just getting into summer here. But still, I would like to see this festival outside, beer goes well with sunshine and it seems a terrible shame to go underground on a nice day – as it happened to be on Thursday.
