Montreal Is Hosting A FREE Beer Festival At Jardins Gamelin

Eat and drink outside at the first-ever La Cuvée d'été.
Montreal Is Hosting A FREE Beer Festival At Jardins Gamelin

After another hugely successful winter edition back in February, the good people of La Cuvée have decided they just can't wait for the snow to return and are bringing us the first-ever La Cuvée d'été to be held at Montreal's awesome urban beer garden, Les Jardins Gamelin. Boasting even more of the deliciousness and entertainment we've grown so fond of the last three years running, but now with the added joy of drinking in the sun! As always, La Cuvée will feature some of the best in local drink, food and entertainment to satisfy your deepest hedonistic pleasures.


Miki Trudel will be pouring up their one-of-a-kind beer flavours including carrot, lime and even black licorice, as well as Les Trois Mousquetaires, Broue Pub Brouhaha, Le Saint Bock and L’Espace Public will be more than happy to keep your cups full.

For those of you with more of a sweet tooth, make sure to try Hugues Pomme & Houblon, a unique hops-based cider that makes for a truly unique taste, or sample the other cider-based and summer cocktails that will be on offer, perfect for getting a healthy day buzz going.


Food for the first La Cuvée d'été also promises to be damn yummy. Dirty Dogs will be slangin' their next-level hot dogs with a few extra special ones made specifically for the event, La Confrérie will have a variety of delectable pogos to munch on, and Crémy Pâtisserie will be back to make our bellies smile with specialty popsicles and more drool-worthy doughnuts to shake a stick at. There will no doubt be other vendors on site as well to complete your total food coma.


Setting the perfect atmosphere for this awesome event, La Cuvée will be doing it up once again with a 50's throwback vibe. Jump and jive to wicked local bands Cherry Chérie, Hellbound Hepcats, DeuxLuxes, Call me Wayne, Tobiko and The Black Moon Boys, providing the perfect rockabilly soundtrack to your gustatory festivities.

So whether you go for a casual lunch, a hearty 5 à 7, an after-show drink, or decide to spend your whole weekend there, mark your calendar kids - because La Cuvée d'été at Les Jardin Gamelin will be the hottest spot in town July 17-19, 2015.
