18th Mondial De La Biere Montreal 2011 Review

So I went to the Mondial De La Biere (International Beer Fair) in Montreal which took place June 8-12. The atmosphere was just crazy! The Place Bonaventure exhibition halls were packed with drunk French Canadians who clearly came to have a good time. Anyways, I was a bit disappointed with the exhibitors (way too many industrial breweries with fancy booths .... I mean who cares about Heineken, Molson and Labatt at a beer fair?). Still there were quite a few small and medium-sized Quebec breweries with interesting products. I was particularly impressed by 'Dieu du Ciel' and its funky coffee stout and hibiscus wheat ale.
All in all it was a good event.
