God damn the price for the european beers is waaaay too ridiculous. I mean I'm ready to spend 6 coupons for a 4 oz, but 14 is dumb. Ill stick to quebecs stands.

Is that really it for American breweries? Allagash, Stone and especially Dogfish Head are fine, but there are probably 30 other breweries that are just as good on the US scene right now. Shame!

I know, just like I said in OP, the USA offering this yea (and last year) is quite disappointing.

Yeah, this year was even worse than last year IMO.

To top it all off, I missed about 5 saison because I was too early.

Still came out with about 20 tasters at the end of the night and I just had the worst poutine in history of poutine, even worse than Vladimir. (Mtl poutine.)

too expensive , probably something like 80$ to get drunk unless you only drink the cheap beer at 8-9%

If your main purpose of going at the Mondial is to get drunk then you're missing out. Plenty of places to go to get drunk for cheap. Mondial ain't one of them.

Besides, it's about 80 bucks to get drunk on "not watered down" beer almost every where in the city.

Got back from there a couple of hours ago. Missed your post OP, your advices looks nice!

But honestly, I thought the event is overrated. Very overpriced for the kind of selection available.

The Mondial de la Biere doesn't live up to its name ; the most exotic beer I found were the Brazilian one. It's just a very insidious way of getting drunk to me. Not worth the price.

There is some nice food selection though, so you don't have to dine before going.

If you decide to go, enjoy! You'll still have a good time!

Of course it's overrated. It's beer, in Montreal, during the month of June.

What are you expecting? That people will stay home and you'll have this huge hall all for yourself with very affordable craft beers?

Yeah this event blows. Was my first time. Such a lack of international and interesting beers. Nothing to write home about.

Oh well, got sufficiently drunk off of some malt and had chinese food after.

It's true that they should ditch some of the quebec Microbrasserie for some international beers.

I still love the fact that I was piss drunk yesterday and I have not even an hangover right now. Love being drunk in the morning.

They shouldn't ditch any from Quebec, there are so many missing! I have no idea what's the deal with the Brazilian and Italian importer, but there are too many average beers out there from these places and at a ridiculous price.

They also really should focus on bringing in a maximum of American craft beers. Like I previously said, the selection is getting redundant. Bring in some Founders, Jolly Pumpkins, Bells, Alchemist, Hill Farmstead, Lawson's Finest, Three Floyds, etc. So many great breweries out there, it's a shame we only get the same ones over and over again here.

I drank a couple beers yesterday and the one that stood out the most for me was the Assemblage #2 from Dunham. Ever since they brought Eloi as a brewer from Le Cheval Blanc the quality of their beers have been nothing but impressive.

Another one I really loved was the Peluso 30th anniversary. Loved the subtle fruit notes.

We also tried the Oud Beersel Bzart Lambiek, which was sold out by 4-5 pm. The funky nose and taste was quite enjoyable. A really great lambic.

The Double IPA brewed with Myrique baumier from Le Naufrageur disappointed me. It wasn't bad, it's drinkable, but it's not in the style at all. No hops. Too malty.

I won't have time to go this week but I'm looking into going to the one in Chambly at the end of summer. Has anyone been before?
