Local Montreal Tours offers informal walking tours that focus on Montreal’s distinct culture, history and gastronomy, providing a much needed, authentic and non-touristy glimpse into the heart of the city. We recently checked out their Montreal Brewpub Experience tour where we strolled around the Plateau, sampled some artisanal beers and became acquainted with some of the city’s best kept secrets…
The fact is that Montreal has the second most brewpubs in the world, so it’s no surprise that Quebecers love to indulge in beer and gastronomic delights. With Local Montreal Tours, you’re inspired to rediscover your love of beer while becoming bewitched by the culture that makes Montreal so unique. The Brewpub Experience tour is available all year round and starts at 2pm from Wednesday to Saturday. On the tour, you’ll enjoy six exquisite brews and discover three of the city’s best brewpubs (L’Amère À Boire, Le Saint-Bock and Benelux) while enjoying delicious homegrown treats like baguette with melted brie and maple roasted pecans.
But it’s not just about the beer and food. The people at Local Montreal Tours use the brewpubs and the walking tour to highlight the very essence of Montreal. Aside from learning about beer and how it’s made, you’ll get to see Montreal through the eyes of locals and understand why Montreal is one of the most unique cities in North American. Between sips of beer, you’ll get snippets of Montreal’s rich history while touring significant cultural, architectural and historical sites like the sleek Grand Bibliotheque, the picturesque St. Louis Square and the trendy Latin Quarter.
