Where to find Quebec beers, wines, and cider in Montreal
In recent years, Quebec microbrewery beers and wines have gained increasing popularity. The community of artisanal brewers and winemakers in Quebec continues to grow with products of exceptional quality. The variety of Quebec products on the shelves of specialty grocery stores and other addresses across the city ensures something for all tastes!
With the arrival of the warm weather, it is more tempting than ever to get some good drinks to enjoy in the sun. All occasions are good to celebrate with a good microbrewery beer or a local wine. But where can we find these products, which are not all available at the SAQ? In addition to the many restaurants, bars and cafés, several addresses specialize in the sale of Quebec beers and wines.
This type of business is becoming increasingly popular and is always run by passionate people who are eager to share their expertise with you. They will know how to recommend products according to your preferences, and there is no doubt that with the variety available, you will leave with some great finds.
