Announcing the first-ever Marché des Brasseurs eventPosted: July 8, 2014
The Marché des Brasseurs is the first Quebec edition of the Brewery Market, which has hosted events in Toronto and Ottawa since 2011. The Brewery Market’s mission is to showcase local craft beer and food in unique settings, in an inclusive and family-friendly environment. This event will be no different.
The Marché will be held at the Hendrick Farm, a gorgeous heritage property in Old Chelsea which has already gained a reputation as a destination that supports conservation, sustainability and the environment. The Farm, which is part of a community redevelopment project in Chelsea, features a historic barn that visitors will be able to explore and enjoy during the Marché.
For the inaugural Marché, they’re thrilled to be welcoming some of Quebec’s finest craft breweries, including Trou du Diable from Shawinigan, Brasserie Dunham from Dunham, Microbrasserie Le Castor from Rigaud, Brasseurs du Temps from Gatineau and Benelux from Montreal. They’re grateful that these quality brewers are participating in the first (of hopefully many) Marchés in Quebec.
The Marché des Brasseurs will be free admission and you will be able to buy beer and food at the event. It will run from 12pm – 6pm on Saturday, July 26th. The event will be all-ages and family friendly. Proceeds from the Marche des Brasseurs will support the great work of Sentinelle Outaouais. Hendrick Farm has ample free parking but they do not suggest that you drink and drive. In partnership with Brew Donkey, they will be running a shuttle bus to the Marché des Brasseurs from Ottawa (leaving from Fairmont & Wellington). You can reserve your spot on the bus here. And with that, mark down Saturday, July 26th in your calendar for a wonderful day of Quebec craft beer and food at our first Marché des Brasseurs!
