Free? Beer? We’re listening.
The Mile End’s trendy Aire Commune is hosting the first ‘Fabriqué à Montréal’ a weekend event devoted to local microbreweries, street food and pop-up shops.
The festival’s primary goal is to focus on the richness of local creators. White wheat beer, scotch ales, cherry-cask beers, oatmeal stouts, peanut butter-flavoured beer, and Nano IPAs are some of the specialized beer that will highlight the festival, all of which are locally made.
Local microbreweries that will be hand in the heart of the Mile End are as follows:
- Avant-Garde Artisans Brasseurs
- Matera Brasseurs Tonneliers
- Microbrasserie Vox Populi
- Microbrasserie 4 Origines
- HELM microbrasserie sur Bernard
- EtOH Brasserie
- Boswell Brasserie Artisanale
- Pub BreWskey – Brasserie Artisanale
- Vilains Brasseurs
- Broue Pub Brouhaha Rosemont
Besides local food trucks and DJs, the weekend beer fest will also welcome Houblon Bastien, a producer of hops from the region of Terrebonne as well as Frédéric Thibault, the vice-president of the popular Glutenberg, to explain the success of their new company.
Fabriqué à Montréal is the perfect opportunity to check out Aire Commune before it closes for the season in September.
The festival is free to enter and will offer various samples free of charge. Street vendors, shops and beer prices for purchase will vary.
