I can not cover the Mondial de la Biere in just one visit so I went back on Saturday June 6th. I was amazed as to how many others were there. This of course means you are lined up for everything. If you can arrange it you might want to go in the day during the week. Due to the crowding my note for the most part are very brief.
So I lined up, to get my tasting glass and some tickets. Then a quick walk around to see if there was anything new.
1st stop Booth 172 Molson/Rickard’s to try Rickerd’s White 5.4%. It was a light tasting beer, it’s now been added to my summer list.
Next was Brasserie Artisanale Le Saint-Bock @ booth 64, and tried their R.I.P @ 14.9%. It is in a Russian Imperial Porter style. Yes this is a 2nd taste for this beer. I am starting to like this beer for it’s taste, and I think it would be a great beer for use in cooking.
On to Booth 14 Okanagan Spring Brewery for their Okanagan Spring Pale Ale 5%, it’s a nice clear looking, light and crisp tasting beer.
Benelux-Brasserie Artisanale Et Cafe for their Novis 5% Pale Ale Belge. It’s a very nice Pale Ale. Benelux is now on my list of pubs/bars in Montreal, the free WiFi will just be a bonus. I want to try some of their other beers to see how good they are.
Then on to the Black Oak Brewing Co. for their Black Oak Pale Ale 5%. Nice golden colour very refreshing finish.
For some thing a little different I stopped that Booth 18 Asahi Breweries Ltd. and tried their Asahi Supper Dry. A very Cold Crisp Beer.
Getting ready to head for home and had a couple of tickets left, so I stopped at Booth 6 for a Sol.
Food stopped at Experience Kangourou yes I had the “Mini Skippy Burger” again. Starting to like Kangaroo.
Stopped back at InterMiel booth 54 to buy some Mead I got a bottle of Rosee hydromel which is a Rose petal and cranberry honey wine and a bottle of Bleuets Hydromel a Blueberry honey wine.
Plan for next years Mondial de la Biere will include 2 weekday visits.
