la cuvee

Winter is in full effect here in Montreal but that doesn’t mean that you should stay at home bundled up like a little burrito. On the contrary, we live in Montreal which means that there is something happening every single night. Yeah it might be cold out but there are a lot of events happening this month... one of which combines some fineeee whiskey, local beer and some seriously delicious food! Oh, and did I mention live shows and good music to keep you partying all night?

If there ever was a drink to keep you warm during the cold winter months, it's alcohol! And what's better than alcohol, well drinking and socializing with your friends of course!

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.

Let's be honest, the best kind of festivals involve two things: drinking and eating! And when it comes to doing both, nowhere does it quite like Montreal. As part of all the Montreal En Lumiere and Nuit Blanche festivities, La Cuvée D'Hiver is back for its third consecutive year and is sure to once again be the highlight of the entire event.

Whetting your whistle this year:

A wide selection of microbrewed beers from Le Trou du diable, La Succursale, McAuslan, L’Alchimiste, Dieu du Ciel and Les Sœurs Grises.

Photo cred - Jim Wilson for the NY TImes

Whiskey has reached new levels of popularity in the last few years, and the trend has definitely been felt in Montreal. Maybe its the inherent manliness to drinking a glass of scotch, or the hipster cred to knowing things about whiskey, but whatever the reason, Montreal digs scotch, bourbon, rye, or whatever type of whiskey as much as any other city. But we do fall short in one respect to whiskey: Montreal doesn't have a whiskey library.

Nothing beats the beautiful pairing of beer and whiskey. The two go hand in hand, and we're not just talking about double-fisting a shot and a brew. The two have an intertwined drinking culture of brewing methods, music, and a love for quality creations, all of which will be celebrated at La Cuvée, the first-ever winter whiskey and beer festival in Montreal.

In collaboration with MTL En Lumiere and Whiskey Montreal, this is the second edition of La Cuvée. Whiskey is definitely a winter drink, so the switch makes perfect sense, and you'll be able to warm up with some finely crafted whiskey (and beer) at the end of the month, all from local Quebec breweries.
