Thanks for the kind words! It was a fun time for sure and nice to be away for a couple of days.

To answer some of the q's:

- Poincaré does not have a brewery (at least not one I could see) - it is a pretty small space. It says on their menu that the kolsch is made by les Grands Bois. The other lagers are named "mystery" so maybe made by different breweries? I didn't ask but I wasn't really bothered about it.

- The Benelux in Verdun is a totally different vibe and feel than the Sherbrooke one. IMO it is 100% worth the effort to go there. If it wasn't named the same thing you wouldn't know they were related. And they're only a block from the l'Eglise stop on the green line so it's an easy trek from downtown.

I saw that on the website menu and was like WTF? I wonder if that means it's some secret contractor, or if it rotates and they just don't bother to tell you who made it this week? LOL

I was thinking about this - maybe it's a way for people to not fixate on the brewery but decide based upon the style? I could be overthinking it. You might be right, they may just have rotating breweries that make them beer and its easier to say 'mystery' than keep track on the menu of which one it is!

Hey all. Can anyone recommend bottle shop in Montreal or Quebec City where i can grab some local QC beer? Is Depanneur Peluso still the place to go? Heading there tomorrow!

Suggestions I have learned from this forum and tried and enjoyed before the plague are:

Recommended for great selection, very reasonable prices (by Quebec retail standards) and the added bonus of lots of other tasty things to buy while there.

If you are driving:

Little place in Vaudreuil. I find it a bit pricey, but has a pretty esoteric section of local breweries.

Boy am I glad I made it there when I did! Crazy how things changed so fast. Hopefully we’ll all be able to get out and about visiting places again soon.
