Discover our brewing know-how by visiting our many microbreweries. Among our favorites, we suggest: La Barberie for its magnificent terrace in summer, La Korrigane for its beer sold only in their microbrewery and the Noctem for its downtown atmosphere, all in Saint-Roch district. We also like Griendel in the Saint-Sauveur district, and La Souche in the Limoilou district. Cheers!
