19e Mondial de la bière

It's coming!!

When : From june 6th to 10th
Where : Place Bonaventure
Price : 1$ per ticket (1 to 6 tickets per beers)
Beers : http://festivalmondialbiere.qc.ca/pd...bieres2012.pdf

I'll be going wednesday, thursday and friday all day long. I actually took days off this year. It's going to be awesome

Since I spent the past year to try beers from Québec, I'll mainly focus on beers from the States this year.

Here are a few US breweries that you must try :

-Allagash
-Dogfish head
-Founders
-Jolly Pumpkins
-Lagunitas
-New Belgium
-Ommegang
-Rogue

I found most European breweries present to be not appealing in comparison to the ones from the USA.

As for the Québec beers, here are a few suggestions :

- Unibroue : Grande réserve 17
- La succursale : Angus IP"AAA"
- Trou du diable : La buteuse

I wish I could remember the beer huts that tend to be more generous with their servings. Oh well.

This is always a fun event though, very much looking forward to it.

I will be a volunteer on wednesday for the Mondial. I hope we get nice perks!

I'll go at least twice more.

I intend to try a lot of american brewers. There are great craft brews in the states but they are very hard to come by in Quebec. It's easier to get Chimay or even Rochefort from Belgium than almost anything south of the border. Dead Guy Ale from Rogue is about the only one I can get regularly at the SAQ, anything else you need to private import (either yourself or choice pub like the Saint-Bock).

I doubt we'll get any Pliny the Elder or Pliny the Younger from Russian River. If we do... I will get expelled from the Mondial while trying to violently force my way to the front of the huge lineup.

Yeah, no RR at the Mondial. I wish. Would've loved some Stone and Three Floyds as well.

Have you ever tried the Nugget Nectar from Kroegs? One of the best beers I've ever had.

I have 3 or 4 bottles of this beer, waiting. They're supposed to be absolutely amazing in 2-3 years. It's going to be hard to wait, but... I'm going to.

As a Canadian, it hurts me to say this...but American microbrews are the best in the world.

À essayer:

Dogfish Head (Delaware represent? )
Lagunitas
New Belgium
Magic Hat
Rogue <---- the gold standard in my opinion.

I used to be a huge fan of Rogue as well, but the more I read about them the more the star faded. Lots of problems with the way they treat their employees.

As for Magic Hat, their beers are good but since they're located in Vermont and readily available next to the borders I wouldn't go out of my way to try these at the expense of the Midwest and West coast breweries.

what the hell.... it's been a year ALREADY ?!

It was fun last year but way too expensive. My friends and I still joke about "la bière avec un léger goût d'amertume" though

Nope. As I said, the good US stuff is freakishly hard to get over here and it's frustrating. So far the best American brew I have had are Rogue's Dead Guy Ale and Stone IPA. The later is particularly divine.

But I will go the Vermont Brewing Festival this year. If the beer isn't coming to you... Stone will be there and so is Brooklyn Brewery, amongst a few I desperately want to try. And so are Dieu du Ciel! They Represent Quebec extremely well in the brewing world, if you ask me.

Mainly looking for Schneider's Nelson Sauvin and the one I haven't drank from Birrificio Del Ducato (Machete).

Sad that the Brutal IPA isn't there for Rogue, and that Dogfish's offering is kinda slim, and that Allagash haven't brought the Black. Would've like to see Moylan's as well.

As for suggestions....

If any of you never tried it, go for the Boson de Higgs from Hopfenstark.

Terrific brew to start the day.

Went there during the Memorial Cup and this beer is definitely worth a look. It's more of a 'dessert' beer as it is not that far from an apple cider. It is without a doubt a unique beer and much better IMO than their latest special edition called Dulcis Succubus.

From Trou du Diable my favorite is still Sang D'encre : the texture (velvety(?) and smooth) and taste of that beer are great.

Then again, is Montreal known for beer worldwide?

Now that Montreal is apparently world-renowned for smoked meat, poutine and, to a lesser extent, pizza...

The best beer at Le Trou du Diable for me is : La Chose

"LA CHOSE

La Chose a un nez particulier. Le caramel domine et laisse poindre des notes de résine et d’agrumes. Mais La Chose est amère…. Elle sombre rapidement dans la chaleur de l’alcool tout en maintenant un indéniable équilibre entre la tendresse du sucre et l’amertume des houblons américano-néo-zélandais.

Modèle d’inspiration : India Wee-heavy

Fermentation : haute

Alcool : 9,5% d’alcool par volume

Clientèle cible : Les mutants se reconnaîtront dans La Chose. Elle est un hybride entre les traditionnelles scotch ales et les 120 minutes IPA. À l’ère où les styles de bière se redéfinissent, nous croyons avoir pondu quelque chose qui saura vous ébranler. Chose certaine, plusieurs Choses vous ébranleront sûrement…

Médaille d’or - prix du public au Mondial de la bière 2010"

I've been a loyal supporter of this event for 10 years, but last year will be my last Beer Fest until they move the event back outside where it belongs.

It doesn't matter where they are. All that matters are the beers you try.

I've tried it recently (was damn lucky to get some)....amazing beer. I also really enjoyed dogfish heads burton baton. I recently tried the heady topper from alchemist in vermont. Very hoppey beer, can't believe the flavor from a can! You must try it.
