Look for the BRASSEURS DES CANTONS beer brewers’ map

2017-05-17, from Tourism Eastern Townships

Sherbrooke, May 17, 2017 – Fifteen or so microbreweries from the region have joined forces and gathered under the banner Brasseurs des Cantons (Brewers of the Townships).  The idea of creating a map of the region’s breweries grew out of the need to give the association concrete form.

 

The Conseil de l’industrie bioalimentaire de l’Estrie (CIBLE), under the regional Créateurs de saveurs Cantons-de-l’Est (flavour designers) brand, piloted the project in collaboration with Tourism Eastern Townships. The proposed label, Brasseurs des Cantons, was obvious because the aim is to highlight the people behind the products.

 

The Circuit Microbrasseries map shows the establishments where you can taste the beers of the Eastern Townships. The map has a print run of 40 000 copies in French and 13 000 in English. It will be available at breweries, accommodations, and regional tourist information offices as well as in Québec’s five Infotourist Centres.

 

“This is a good way to highlight the wide variety of malted offerings in the region,” said David Place of the Microbrasserie La Memphré in Magog. For her part, Microbrasserie Coaticook’s Sarah Jolicoeur-Hull added “The map allows visitors to discover each brewer’s favourite beer and also provides a suggestion for an activity nearby.”

 

For Tourism Eastern Townships, the consolidation of the breweries under the banner Brasseurs des Cantons helps the region stand out from others with places to discover in six MRCs. “The Townships is known as a foodie destination, with more than 250 businesses operating in that sector here. Food tourism is one of the key products on which Tourism Eastern Townships is focusing.   After the development of the Route des vins (wine route), and the brands Créateurs de saveurs Cantons-de-l’Est, Chefs créateurs, and Cafés de village, it is time to showcase the richness, the diversity, and quality of our brewery products,” noted Francine Patenaude, Director General of Tourism Eastern Townships.

 

“The microbrewery map is a first unifying project.  We, the Brasseurs des Cantons, intend to undertake more joint projects to promote recognition of our products.  Créatures de saveurs Cantons-de-l’Est products can be sampled on a plate or in a glass,” concluded Danick Pellerin of Microbrasserie Moulin 7 in Asbestos.
