I was actually planning to go to the Alchemist pub this summer with a friend to try the Heady Topper. Only heard good things about this beer.

That's a good idea....can you let me know if it's worth the trip?

Also, some other good hoppey american beers i've had & really enjoyed are victory hop devil & hop wallop....as well as laguinitas hoop stoopid. Stone and Rogue make nice ones as well. Smutteynose makes some decent beers out of new hampshire. All of these beers I've purchased in Vermont. Can't wait to go back!!!

I didn't get a chance to go last year. If it's not held outside the Bell Centre anymore, where exactly is it held? Are you still allowed to sit on the grass/steps with your beer at least?

Awesome brew!

I wouldn't say so. Inside means no problem in case of rain, there's actually lots of space at place Bonaventure.

This said, it was somewhat lacking in ambiance last year, and I suppose it will be the same this year.

Place Bonaventure. I don't really suggest sitting on the ground.

Oooh, and there is the new Bud Light Lime Mojito. Combining even more cheap ingredients in industrial kettles... how can you go wrong?!

Someone tell me which cream ale and which IPA I should have. Something less known (not dogfish head or something like that, they're delicious but I know them)

I'm looking forward to the new Miller Light can that you first pop open, then puncture a second time with a nearby sharp object for **** knows what.

I remember like 10 years ago this thing used to be so fun, chilling outdoors at windsor station drinking beer, not too crowded. Then they started advertising tonnes and all kinds of 450 jammed in and you couldn't even move, now they even had to relocate it into a warhouse at place Bonaventure. I won't go to it anymore.

It's about the beer...

I agree, the location isn't as good, but there are other places to go if you just want to hang out and have a drink.

Let us know which beers you try (and which ones are worth buying).

Alright, here's a short list of what I tried today :

Allagash - Curieux (Tripel aged in bourbon) : Didn't taste the bourbon at all, but was a good brew
Dogfish Head - Burton Baton (Old Ale/IPA) : This was my last one of the evening and at this point I was hammered. Great brew as well, is more of a DIPA than an Old Ale. Lots of hops.
Founders - Dirty B*stard (stupid filter) (Scotch Ale) : Great Scotch ale, loved it. I've tried lots of scotch ale that were awful, not the case with this one.
Founders - Porter : This is the one I was the most disappointed with. Not because it's bad, but because it's nothing original. It's a good poter, nothing more.
Founders - Double Trouble (Imperial IPA) : Loved it. Similar to the Angus IP"AAA" from La succursale. If you love hoppy beers, this one's for you.
Jolly Pumkin - La Roja (Wild ale) : I haven't tried much wild/sour ales so far in my beer experiences. Came here expecting to not like any at all but god damn this is great. Tastes like the Rodenbach Grand Cru but smoother. Hints of grapes in the taste.
Jolly Pumkin - Oro de Calbraza (Sour Belgian) : Easy to drink sour. This was the one I liked the less out of the 3 JP, but it's still very good. It tastes exactly what you would expect from a Sour Belgian.
Jolly Pumpkin - Maracaibo (Sour Brown Ale) : My favorite out of the 3 JP. All of the JP sours were quite smooth and easy to drink, which I loved.
New Belgium - La Folie (Flanders Oud Bruin) : Jesus f christ. This is a great beer. Another sour, I'll be having some tomorrow as well for sure. Better than all 3 JP. Try this one before it's gone, really worth it.
Ommegang - Three Philosopher (Quad with cherries) : I usually hate cherries, but this beer is quite good. You taste the cherries, but not that much, they aren't prominent. I can see why it has great reviews.

I had a few Lagunita beers on my list, but it seems they aren't present there (Gnarlywine and Undercover Shutdown), even tho it was on the list on the website. Too bad.

I haven't tried all the beers on my list, tomorrow will be another great day.
