It's great, but like in a lot of other instances, Montreal offers something just a little different and far more interesting.

Brouwerij De Prael's Heintje is my favorite microbrewed low countries wheat beer. It's really good, from a very small brewery just outside the red light district in Amsterdam.
Montreal (actually, Quebec...) scene features.... A lot of Saison's, actually.

If you like really original products, try stuff from À l'Abri de la Tempête. Pretty much only available in specialized boutiques, and expansive as hell. But those are... different.

Oh... if you can try la Blanche du Mur (Brasseurs du Monde) or l'Alexander Platz at the Mondial de la Bière... do so. Berliner Weisse. And really good ones at that.
