April 15, 2013 – Cheers to beers! Enjoy delicious new brews at the ever-popular Mondial de la bière (Montreal Beer fest), one of Montréal’s first great festivals of the summer, which takes place at the Montréal Convention Centre (Palais des congrès de Montréal), May 29 to June 2, 2013. Founded in 1994, the event is a gateway to the Québec and foreign beer industry attracting over 80,000 people annually in search of high quality, exclusive products.
To please festival-goers of all kinds, the Mondial de la bière’s program includes an elaborate educational segment. Whether it’s meeting with the brewers, participating in the Public Beer Contest, or learning something at the Cheese and Beer workshops, all beer aficionados will be equipped to cultivate their minds, educate their palates, and quench their thirsts with a wide variety of flavourful delights.
Through the years, the event has become the most important festival of international beers in North America, and its reputation has travelled to many other countries with a European version of the event firmly established.
