I hear you and of course it would be the ideal way for a beer fest to be going, but it involves beers so it's nearly impossible.

And from my own experiences, there are not so many drunktards in there, it's mostly what you describe.

Bières et Compagnie is great because they have a few international beers that you can't find anywhere else. Like my favorite : the Tripel Karmeliet (from Belgium). But they are also very expensive.



The best place I know to buy beers is the little store at the intersection of Frontenac/Iberville and Rachel. They have a HUGE selection, both local and international beers. They also do some "dégustation" (tasting?) a few days a week.

It is crowded, but there are quite a few premium beers every year. Well worth the hassle.

ya some of the imports at B&C are expensive.. the last one I tried (Mort Subite) was $14 I think. Was really good though (if you're into fruity beers like I am)

I'll try that store.. I drive by there every day. Who knew there was a sweet beer store there thx

That beer you like, what kind of flavor does it have? I dislike strong/dark beers.

i went last night - good times!

I highly recommend Rogue breweries' "Double Mocha Porter" and "John John Dead Guy Ale" from the Oktoberfest kiosk.

How does the place compare to the last few years at the Gare Windsor?

Excited to have some Schneider Weisse!!

The good news is I convinced my girlfriend to go with me, and the better news is that she's driving

I'm ready to spend $60 on 1$ samples. Let's see how it goes.

I'm there right now, love the space, not packed like the previous years. Hate the smell and lack of sun.

I'm currently enjoying the John John Dead Guy Ale, which ashtraygirl suggested, and its special. Don't love it or hate it, but its a unique taste that surprised me. Worth trying.

It's almost 5, getting crowded, we'll see how the waiting lines go.

I'll give you updates.

Well its almost 6 i doubt it gets more crowded here. I went 4 times at the Petit pub which usually has freaking long waiting lines and it never took me more than 2 mins to be served.

On saturday

Trou du Diable.
Broadway Pub.

both are from my hometown, Shawinigan. They'll take care of you. Le Trou du diable won the beer of the year 3 years ago.

Broadway Pub, the best beer is the «Chuckey».

I don't know if I will go to this one this year. I prefer the one in Chambly in early September.

At this point you can even find them at IGA (supermarket)!

Indeed. My favorite.

But the Chambly one really focus on Québec. About the only foreign stuff you'll spot is a lonely stand of Carlsberg and Boris. But I bet over half of every microbrewery in Quebec is represented, it's awesome.

On the other hand, if you want to discover what other countries can do, the Mondial is your best shot.

Honestly though, hope everyone that does end up going has a lot of fun. For me, side-walk sale is taking place tomorrow and all weekend long.

No, you can choose to buy their official glass, otherwise they give you 4oz plastic cups.

I might be going tomorrow afternoon... it's a toss up in my mind right now between going there or going to a group study... We all have a pretty good idea what should win! Although my budget is also kind of tight right now...

Definetly worth buying. I've also starting going with the 2oz option since last year. You'll get to try more and if you chat up the servers a bit they tend to pass the line by quite a bit. Hell even if you don't say anything they'll fill it up past the line. Although come to think of it alot of people will fill it to the brim on the 4oz which they shouldn't. Just ignore me. I tend to start scheming ways to get more beer apparently when I'm drunk.
