Mondial de la Biere - Beer List

I'm still up in the air about attending this years edition of Mondial de la Biere. It's not that I don't want to go, it's that I have a wedding to appear at on the Saturday, and a wedding of my own to continue planning. I have yet to make it Montreal for the storied beer festival, and thinking about missing out on the beers that will be available this year is making my stomach curl.

The festival organizers released the extensive list of vendors that will be pouring their product into the glasses of thirsty attendees, and my - does it look fantastic. There are also a number of local Ontario craft breweries that will be heading to Windsor station to set up shop: Beau's, Wellington, Mill Street, Cameron's, Great Lakes, Neustadt, and Black Oak. They will be joining many terrific Quebec breweries like Dieu du Ciel, Hopfenstark, Microbrasserie du Lievre and more, along with a slue of Japanese, US, and Danish craft breweries.

The festival runs from Wednesday June 3rd to Sunday June 7th and admission is free. Tasting coupons will cost $1 each, however, the cost of one tasting can run from 1 to 5 coupons (for most beers). The souvenir glass provided can hold up to 8 oz, but most breweries will be serving 3-4 ounces (unless you fork over more coupons).
