BREWERIES

Unibroue, Inc. 80 des Carrieres, Chambly (514) 954 9009
The owner is reputed to be Robert Charlebois, the pop singer and composer of various anthemic songs I remember from my youth. Their beers are 'Blanche de Chambly', 'La Maudite' (the latter translating, roughly, as 'the infernal'), 'La Fin du Monde' (The End of the World), and 'Raftsman'.

Las Brasseurs G.M.T (Microbrewery)

McAuslans - 4850 St. Amboise St. Bureau 100; (514)939-3060
Brewpub Microbrewery with "the most exciting new ales in Canada". Tours. "St. Ambroise was always one of my favourites in the early days. It's brewed by the MacAuslan brewery. It is now joined by St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout, Griffon Extra Pale Ale and Griffon Brown Ale. These are, respectively, fine examples of amber ale, oatmeal stout, lightly flavored pale ale and American brown ale. The Griffon pale is not hoppy enough for my tastes and may well have been made with some corn."
Metro: Take subway to St. Henri stop. Go West on St. Jacques St. South on St. Marguerite St, through a short tunnel. Right onto St. Ambroise St., proceed for three blocks. A Pugsley-inspired Ringwood brewer. I think they give tours.
