Mondial de la bière (Montreal beer festival) presents Les terrasses d’Automne. This essential gathering for all beer lovers takes place outdoors, from October 7 to 10 in Montreal’s Rio Tinto Courtyard.
The Mondial de la bière is pleased to announce that its event will be back, October 7 to 10, 202 at Montreal’s Windsor Station! Due to covid requirements, the 27th edition of this get together for all beer lovers, will be held entirely outside and will consist of several sessions, each three hours in length.
Beers for all tastes, beer experts to meet, all in a festive atmosphere!
Over four days, attendants will find close to 100 different beers on the site, and will be able to satisfy their cravings with snack foods available on site (cheese, cold cuts, pretzels, nuts, malt crackers, sandwiches, etc.). A mini brunch will also be proposed on Saturday at 10 AM and on Sunday at 10 AM and 1:30 PM sessions.
Visitors will have access to two covered areas (marquees and umbrellas), the latter which is equipped with patio heaters. Participants will be invited to choose a table for 4 in their preferred area (depending on the session, DJ or World music Zone and/or Beer Expert Zone). The breweries’ representatives and the Mondial de la bière’s experts will go around the Expert Zone to discuss with tasters who wish to learn more about beer.
