This was a fun way to walk around this part of Quebec City. Our tour guide Sam was knowledgeable about the breweries we visited and his selections of specialised samples were not to be found elsewhere. Fun group as well
The tour started off great with our guide Sam being simply awesome. Small group of us 8 started at first brewery which turned out to be the best by far. A snack bowl of unusual but DELICIOUS snacks were provided which really complimented the beer. Sam was very knowledgeable but not stuffy in any way - we even asked about his amazing beard! lol
Locations were close which kept the walking reasonable. Our only complaint was the lack of snacks provided, especially when consuming as much beer as we did. Other than what was noted above, the second stop provided nothing and the last spot just put out a couple of small bowls of nuts. For the price of the tour we felt it was rather steep due ONLY to the lack of snacks.
sam was an excellent and knowledgeable guide that knows Quebec well. the beer tour was the highlight of our trip, very informative and extremely fun. sam had the brewmasters talk about their techniques and methods, and the beer was surprisingly good. the district is outside the tourist area, and we enjoyed seeing another part of the city that normally would not. we enjoyed the district, and ended up having dinner near the breweries the net two nights. very highly recommended if you like beer and want to see more of Quebec for a few hours.
A very interesting trip to three excellent microbreweries to sample their offerings. Pierre was most knowledgeable as a former owner of the city's first brewpub! and informative. Highly recommended indeed!
