    Harvest time

    This year 2004 they had a crop that was much bigger than other years because of the great weather and the many showers which caused the corn to grow to 7ft. high. On Sept. 23rd and 24th they reaped it all. Today Oct. 4th, 2004 they plowed the fields for next years crop.

    Reaping in the corn. Used to feed the cattle in the winter months. Kept in Silos

    The belgian got the abbaye beer and we got the Unibroue!!!

    The Brewery is located in Chambly. You can book to do a tour of the brewery.

    About Unibroue :
    Unibroue brews craftsman beers for savouring. They have a unique taste and are brewed using a traditional methods. Our beers are not only different from other beers, but each of our brands is unique onto itself. They all have a distinctive character, taste, colour, texture and saturation pressure. Morevover, thinking of every detail, Unibroue has designed a different glass adapted to each beer to make beer drinking an experience of taste and aesthetics.

    The evocative names were inspired by various myths and legends of America¹s pioneers: Blanche de Chambly, Maudite, La Fin du Monde, Raftman, La Gaillarde, Eau Bénite and Quelque Chose.

    Several prizes and distinctions have been awarded to our beers. Among its most important achievements, Unibroue was classified among the ten best breweries in the world in 1995 and 1996 by The Beverage Testing Institute of Chicago, which is known as the main reference in the brewing industry.

    Music Festival

    Festival Theme

    People come from all over the world for this event 'ARTISTS AS WELL' I have found that most people here will not talk to you unless you start talking to them first but at this festival they are different and happy to meet new people. Most were born and raised here and if you are a stranger or a tourist they more or less ignore you. If you ask for help they will respond well but most are reserved. Many of the older people are retired farmers or have worked here all their lives.
    Recently this is changing with the influx of immigrants from all over the world. Their are also a lot of retired people from the City of Montreal now ( I am one)
    Very little English spoken in this city. Mostly FRENCH. Very CONSERVATIVE.
