21e Mondial de la bière

We're only 2 weeks away, it's time to make yourself a list of what to drink at the festival!

When : From June 11th to June 15th
Where : Palais des congrès of Montreal
Price : 1$ per ticket (1 to 6 tickets per beers)
Beers : http://festivalmondialbiere.qc.ca/pd...e-beerlist.pdf

I'm really excited with a newcomer this year, Nogne Ø from Norway. Heard only good things about them and you might see me wandering around the "Petit pub" a lot.

Another weak year for the USA section, IMO. I love Stone, Allagash and Dogfishead, but there needs to be new breweries showing up.

Belgium offering is quite weak as well, not so many beers.

Beers you should be looking for :

USA
Allagash : Curieux
Dogfish head : Burton baton
Dogfish head : 90 mins IPA
Dogfish head : 61 mins IPA
Stone : Arrogant B*stard
Stone : Oak aged Arrogant B*stard
Stone : Russian Imperial Stout


Belgium
Rodenbach : Rodenbach Grand Cru

Norway
Nogne Ø : #100
Nogne Ø : #500
Nogne Ø : Imperial Stout
Nogne Ø : Red Horizon 2nd edition
Nogne Ø : Red Horizon 3rd edition

Brazil
Cervejaria Colorado : Ithaca Oak Aged

Québec
Cheval blanc : Triple IPA
Cheval blanc : Stout impériale russe
Saint-Bock : Sweet Jesus
Dunham : Assemblage HI
Dunham : Saison Rouge Réserve
Microbrasserie du Lac-St-Jean : Rang 10
Microbrasserie du Lac-St-Jean : Gros Mollet Lumber Jack
Brasseurs Illimités : Stout Impériale aux griottes
Le Castor : Yakima
Le Castor : Zeste Saison
Le Naufrageur : Double IPA au myrique baumier (I brewed an IPA with myrique baumier this winter for a contest and it was amazing)
Pit Caribou : Barleywine à l'orge fumé (bottles have been released last week)
Jukebox : Distortion IPA
Trou du diable : Divine comédie
Trou du diable : Dulcis Succubus
Trou du diable : Le Coq
Brouhaha : Noir de Bourgogne
Dieu du ciel : Moralité
Dieu du ciel : Disco soleil
Dieu du ciel : Solstice d'été aux framboises
Trois Mousquetaires : Gose

Stuff to avoid :
Rickard's
Alexander Keith's
Molson
Boris
Newcastle
Creemore
Grolsch
Krombacher
Le Grimoire

Sadly this year I'll only be able to go wednesday because of the World cup.

Pumped! I always go on the weekend with friends but I'm thinking of making a trip after work. Most of the stuff I really want to try ends up being sold out by the weekend.

And thanks for the list, Seb. I agree, some more variety in the US breweries would be nice.

2 years ago La Folie from New Belgium was sold out at 4pm on the first day. I took 2 samples of it. It was glorious.

DDC Moralite is pretty solid, tried it recently & realized it's the collaboration beer they made with the Alchmist from Vermont.
I agree, they need more American beers.

Yeah, the Mondial rarely disappoints.

Looking forward to the Double IPA from Naufrageur.

Haven't been to the Mondial in a couple of years now. I used to go every year. I usually attend the one in Ottawa now. Went to Winterbrewed in Feburary, it was pretty much just craft beer from Ontario. But I have to say, they had great beers and Ottawa is opening a lot of micro breweries these days. We must be up to at least 8 or 9 now.

This weekend I'm going to Festibiere in Gatineau (Hull). This will be mostly craft beers from Quebec also.

I have to say I miss trying international beers like they have at the Mondial.

If anybody plans on coming to Ottawa this year, I would suggest checking out Beyond The Pale, Cassel Brew, Whitewater Brewing Company, and Broadhead. Really good stuff.

Am I the only one that looks forward to getting smashed at the Bavaria tent on 8.6 after I've tried everything that seems interesting? It's become an annual tradition for my friends and I.

That's why I don't go after work and on week-ends. I avoid this kind of behaviour like a plague.

I'm stocked as hell ! I've been on a diet for so long and I haven't been hammered on fine beers since the Festi-biere. It's a go !

Yeah!

Yakima is awesome on its own merit, but also especially cool because the west coast style of IPA is not very common around here. Can only hope it taste a bit like the legendary Pliny the Elder.

I'll try to sample some ale from Rogue this time. Last year they were all gone.

From Québec, I tend to focus on brewpub that don't commercialize. Saint Bock is nice.

And it's silly, but I'm also happy to check out the food truck. Some gems in there. That grill cheese one from last year was brillant (PA & Gargantua, I think).

Have never been. Reading their press release, there are a lot of interesting food options on site:

Quote:
Pour accompagner les dégustations de bières, les festivaliers pourront se régaler dans l’un des 15 pavillons alimentaires : Sandwichs européens, sandwich style panini à la viande fumée de cerfs, Hamburger de sanglier, amuse-gueules de cerfs, brochettes, grosses saucisses sur bâton. Pâtisseries d’Amérique latine : churros nature, au dulce de leche, chocolat-noisette, crème pâtissière au citron. Frites et poutines. Ceviche, causa au thon sauce péruvienne, sandwich au bœuf avec guacamole, petites boulettes de viande avec sauce légèrement épicée, riz jaune au poulet et aux légumes. Maïs soufflé gastronomique sucré ou salé. Grilled cheese Gourmet. Produits italiens. Bretzels Bavarois Gourmet. Fromages grillés sur bâtonnet. Sucre à la crème, 50 saveurs de fudge et nougat. Saucisses fumées au bois d’érable. Skippy Burger, saucisse de kangourou, longe de phoque. Bison et sanglier sur bâton. Riz collé avec haricot rouge, pilons de poulet en sauce, Griot (viande de porc). Pâtisseries, torsades au fromage, brioches, biscuits et saucisses torsadées.
They're allowing beer mugs up to 12 oz on the site and yet it says "Quantité : 3 à 4 onces par dégustation" -- how does it work?

You can bring whatever mug you want, but they will only fill it with 3-4 oz.

Unless you know the guys who pour the beers

Did you try it at the Mondial? Do you remember what other beers were sold at the stand?

FYI, food on-site is ridiculously expensive for ridiculously small portions.

This was good 10 years ago but now it blows, full of 450 trash and way overpriced. They have to keep making the venue crappier too, to accommodate all the mouthbreathers.

Just go to Benelux or DDC if you want some world class beer, hella cheaper too same price for a pint for the 3 ounces they give you at beerfest.
