Theme & Venue:

  • Isle de Garde: A fine brewery in Rosemont-La petite patrie, walking distance from Metro Beaubien. They opened 3 years ago and are super popular. They have their own beer but also more than 20 microbrewery beers which makes us happy. PS The food is also delicious.
  • No theme, we are wild. We chose six beers to try and let me tell you their flights were big!

Beerstitutes Present:

  • Corey
  • Dan
  • Kristen
  • Valerie
  • Anna
