The Québec province is quite the hot spot for craft breweries, and has been for quite some time, hosing the famous Mondial de la biere in Montréal and claiming the renowned Le Dieu du Ciel! and Unibroue breweries (both also in greater Montréal). However, while Montréal receives a lot of the accolades for craft beer, Québec City has certainly not missed out on the craft beer movement. When I visited in 2015, we visited five craft breweries in Québec City proper and there were a number more just outside the city. Here are my thoughts of the ones that we visited.
As you probably know, I LOVE a food tour! So in Québec, I insisted that we take one! Based on my research, there are two primarily companies: Quebec City Tours (the one we chose!) and Tours Voir Quebec. After being so disappointed with my Tours Voir Quebec walking tour of Vieux Quebec, I very happy that we went with Quebec City Food Tours.
Quebec City Food Tours offers one food tour centered around the trendy neighborhood of St. Roch (pronounced Rock). The tour is more than simply a food tour; it is part food tour and part walking tour of St. Roch. I thoroughly enjoyed it and our guide Emily was very passionate about the food and the St. Roch neighborhood.
