La Barberie, Quebec
This is a brewpub off the beaten track, but real close to the train station. Took me a while to find it, but was well worth it. It’s open noon until midnight I think.
It’s got a huge back porch where you can relax in the sun. All hand-crafted beers are $4.50 for a pint, they have about 8 kinds. I had the Biological Blonde, and Red Ale. They also have them in 12 oz, I think, and a sampler of all of them at about 4 oz. or so.
The Blonde was ok, but the Red Ale was one of the best I’ve had. After ordering, the bartender just smiled at me and repeated ‘Red Ale’, with a devilish grin on his face.
Definitely worth a visit.

Technically a microbrewery, the adjacent bar gives it the flavor of a brewpub. There are pool tables and video games. You can also have a hotdog inserted into a mini-baguette. Brewery tours are possible through advance contact with Pierre Turgeon at 265-8088 and you can see a stainless steel brewhouse. The staffs speak french and a little a bit of English.
