Montreal Beer festival is back – Mondial de la bière

Montreal beer festival

After a two-year break from its accustomed staging, the Montreal beer festival called Mondial de la bière will return, May 19 to 22, in the magnificent historical Windsor Station and Rio Tinto Courtyard, in the heart of downtown Montreal. The 28th edition of the most important international beer festival in America will once again satisfy all beer lovers, both newcomer and epicurean, up to the finest connoisseur!  

« It will be the first time in many years that Mondial de la bière will be held both inside and outside. The return of this blueprint not only allows a larger number of visitors, but also offers two completely different atmospheres. It will be possible to access Rio Tinto Courtyard, rain or shine, and listen to DJ-played music. We invite all beer lovers to launch the summer season at Mondial de la bière, during the long weekend before la Journée nationale des Patriotes! », says Jeannine Marois, co-founder, president and general manager of Mondial de la bière.
