You’ll pass through villages where time seems to have stood still, and each leg of your journey will be an experience in itself. “Is there beer here?” You bet! Take the L’Outaouais brassicole brewery tour and discover the local flavours of seven of the region’s microbreweries. Crafted by expert master brewers, each beer has its own colour, personality and distinctive taste. Come see for yourself—you won’t be disappointed. Cheers!
