Beerstitution Volume 42: MABRASSERIE

This months instalment brought us to Mabrasserie, a beer cooperative in Rosemont.  They produce a couple of their own beers and share their space with a couple of other microbreweries as well.  Our evening took place in their tasting room, where they had a nice selection of about 30 beers for us to sample and a simple but delicious menu.  On your way out the door don’t forget to hit up their boutique to take home some of the delicious beers that are made right on site!.
