It’s that beautiful time again when the Montreal Beer Festival rolls into town for 5 days. It begins tomorrow, Wednesday June 6th at 11am-9pm and ends Sunday June 10th. Admission is free and tasting coupons cost $1 each. Most 3-4 ounce samplers will cost around 3 to 5 tickets. So prepare to spend at least $30 on tickets if you want to sample a few beers. Also they sell a souvenir glass (and a bundle of coupons and a glass) for a reasonable price but you can save money if you bring last years or your own 12 ounce glass.
The good news is this year we have the opportunity to go as “press” and could do a bit more reviewing and writing up some of the beer news that we see instead of aimlessly drinking and getting expensive drunk. There are three beer launches that we will go to on Thursday and we will do our best to cover them here. And much more. I will update the site with a rundown of things to see and events we plan on attending starting tomorrow.
