Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
Updated on May 30, 2022
I’m telling you, there’s always something’s brewing in the Eastern Townships! In fact, the artisanal beer sector is presently quite effervescent! The result? Mugs filled with bold flavours, served in surroundings overflowing with character. Here are seven locations where raising your glass is a truly memorable experience. . .
The pub, with its microbrewery products, pays tribute to this mining town’s builders. Therefore, you’ll find it established in an industrial setting, with its interior surrounded by artifacts and relics from the Jeffrey Mine. Here you’ll definitely be able to quench your thirst for discovering amazing brews.
Here, praising the slow way of doing things is what allows the brewers to offer natural beers as they take all their time fermenting to perfection. Indeed, Robin’s beers spend between 3 and 24 months in barrels and then ferment a second time in bottles for 6 to 8 weeks. From this long maturation process, their dry and funky beers emerge.
Here “wild” yeast is what gives their brews their strong flavour. The Brouërie proudly boasts that it is the only establishment to concoct all its beers with its Brettanomyces. Plus, the pub is really a cool place to hang out.
It’s a lounge, it’s a bar, it’s a performance venue, but first, it’s a microbrewery (located in Lac-Mégantic) honouring our everyday heroes. One thing is for sure: its new owners want to prove that local and artisanal can also rhyme with ambition and success.
The pioneer of microbreweries of Quebec was established in a lovely Victorian-style home. Inside this typical English pub atmosphere, you’ll be tempted to immediately order their home-made fish’n chips, but before you do, check out their brewing vats as you’ll enjoy their guided tour (by appointment only).
Beat & Betterave, is a Café de Village established in Frelighsburg. It’s also, since 2020, a nanobrewery. Easygoing, friendly and unpretentious, the place also has a small entertainment hall where you’ll enjoy some well-known artists perform for you. Along with the beers, brewed onsite, and a very local menu, this trio will offer you a truly perfect moment!
2 metres, 20 seconds, a face covering... You know the drill. This summer, we all need to do our part to make this vacation season both enjoyable and responsible.
(In fact, I can even stand apart.)
(Anyways in #touristmode, I'm in no hurry!)
(Ring ahead to avoid the crowd... it’s that simple!)
(I promise... this is no time to joke around.)
Together - For a safe vacation - Let’s be responsible.
