Rosé bubbles and cider from Château Taillefer-Lafon

Insulaires Microbrasseurs’ Favourite Beers

After spending long hours working on your flower beds at home or a long day at the office, we have two suggestions of beers brewed right here in Laval at Insulaires Microbrasseurs: L’Éden and Bochka Vishnya.

Top 3 – L’Éden is a sour wheat and Quebec haskap berry beer. Haskap berries (or honey berries) look like lengthened blueberries with a light tangy taste. They are cultivated in our friends’ certified-organic orchard, Camerise et companie located in the Lanaudière region. 5.5% alc./vol.

Top 4 – The Bochka Vishnya is an imperial stout aged in a bourbon cask with black cherries, morello cherries and vanilla from Madagascar and Mexico. Thanks to the acidity of the cherry, this beer has an exceptional balance while the vanilla adds a bourbon-comparable sweetening taste. 8.5% alc./vol.

Whatever your preferences and tastes, you will love those festive flavours! (And what’s best, there are other ones to discover!)

A breadcrumb-based beer? It’s the brilliant idea from La Bête à Pain!

Top 5 – Recuperated bread is transformed into a Hefeweizen-type beer. What an ingenious idea! Miettes was developed thanks to teamwork and Oshlag Microbrewery and La Bête à Pain shared values of local vision, originality, and innovative spirit.This Quebec locally produced beer is brewed like the Hefeweizen, a wheat beer from the South of Germany. So Miettes is a white beer with aromas of bananas, clove, cinnamon, and toasted bread. Exotic and unique, don’t you think?
