Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
Of course, there are sugar shacks, but there are also many other ways to appreciate maple products in the area. Here’s an overview of some sweet foodie experiences.
When you visit Aux Sucreries de l’érable, it’s maple sugaring season all year round. This artisanal pastry shop in Frelighsburg highlights traditional Quebec products, especially those made with maple. THE product you must buy: the (famous!) maple syrup pie which, by itself, is well worth the trip to this lovely village!
Thirsty for maple? The Grimoire Microbrewery in Granby suggests you try their Désérables, an amber maple beer offering a comforting taste with a subtle bitterness touch and which brings to mind the delicious taste of maple taffy. You can also try the Maplehurst at the Coaticook Microbrewery, which you’ll find for a limited time only. A beer made with real maple syrup from the Érablière du Lac Wallace? We say yes!
Saturdays and Sundays until April 21, the restaurant Auguste offers a brunch menu during the sugaring season like you’d find in a sugar shack. Pea soup, Canadian bacon rind salad, braised ham, bacon candies, scrambled eggs … savour all the classic maple dishes in a refined ambiance!
The Vignoble du Ruisseau proposes a sweet original three- or four-course menu. On the menu? Steamed buns stuffed with smoked pulled pork, baked beans, vineyard pâtés, homemade cheddar sausages, apple coleslaw salad, maple mousse and much more. You can visit their maple grove and the vineyard as well. You can also take home a bit of happiness by visiting their well-stocked boutique.
This enterprise with its three mobile sugar shacks is ready to go anywhere to sell their marvellous sweet maple products. Érable au fil du temps also proposes a maple discovery formula : The history of Maple syrup, maple producing paraphernalia, tastings, quizzes…
