Le Brasseur Fou Inside the Sawyerville Hotel’s heritage building is where Le Brasseur Fou has established its brewery. On the terrace, while you enjoy the guest folk singers perform, you can savour such artisanal beers as Zéphir, an amber with flavours of caramel, or their Kali, a light ale, along with several dishes made with local products.

L’Ardoise, coopérative brassicole Having just established themselves in Richmond, L’Ardoise, Coopérative Brassicole will experience its first summer since the microbrewery was launched in October 2021. On the menu, you’ll find a fine variety of beers: Bitter, Pale Ale, Dry Stout, lagers, NEIPA, Seasons …

With the addition of these two sites, the Circuit Brasseurs des Cantons now includes 29 microbreweries located in the four corners of the Townships. Download the map to find where they’re located and enjoy discovering our brewers.
