Beer Festivals: 12e édition Bières et Saveurs de Chambly

Off to Brouhaha on a sunny Sunday afternoon to hop on the Broue-Bus for a good ol' fashion yellow bus ride to the Bières et Saveurs de Chambly, a beer festival held to celebrate the best of Quebec micro brews. There were 33 craft beer tents, meat on a stick, and lots of fried good stuff. Most of the brewers have done a beer festival or two but there were some welcomed newcomers like Jukebox, brewed right here in Montreal.

The grounds were packed with beer enthusiasts, all enjoying the amazing end of summer weather and the endless options for craft beer. We mostly stuck to the breweries we are well acquainted with and tried some some of their limited release beer on offer for the festival. But seeing as this was the place to explore we did venture out to some non-familiar breweries to see what they had to offer.

The energy on the festival grounds was contagious, it was exciting to see the different types of people that were out to enjoy amazing beer. Held along the Richelieu River, beside the historic Chambly Fort added to the festivals atmosphere. As compared to Mondiale de la Bière held in Montreal in early June, the location of Bieres et Saveurs could not be more scenic and representative of Quebec's artisanale culture. 

So that's our recap of the day's events, don't forgot to mark it down in your calender for next summer.
