You may want to head to one of Montreal’s many beer gardens. As we’re known for out terrasse culture, it’s no surprise that the city also boasts some pretty awesome beer gardens.
Here are 5 outdoor beer gardens that will make you feel like you’re in Germany:
Open from noon until late 7 days a week, Brasserie McAuslan is a pub in Sud-Ouest that magically transforms itself into a beer garden in the summer.

Le Saint Sulpice is the perfect place to grab a beer.
