For its third edition at the Jacques-Cartier Park, 35 000 visitors attended the Gatineau Beerfest!
Our festival marks the arrival of warmer weather and family outings in nature. The Outaouais region is a strategic place to access all kinds of specialty beers.Its residents are served by four major distribution networks on both sides of river. They offer an impressive choice of flavors which are ever evolving. This wide selection of beer can now accompany most meals.
The phenomena of artisan beer production and the tasting experience has been growing over the past twenty years. Its development potential is still very large, as indicated by the latest report from the Association of Quebec microbreweries. The Gatineau Beerfest wants to tap on this trend by engaging the public to discover new products and by educating fans about how to taste them. The Gatineau Beerfest want you to discover its artisans, local produce, beer and food matches in a outdoor country atmosphere, amongst friends and family.
In May, the National Capital will be beating to the rhythm of the Beerfest as people discovers news flavors and local produce. Its programming is sure to please with workshops, cooking demonstrations, street artists, troubadours and entertainment.
Finally, the tasting experience is based on the idea that quality prevails over quantity. The Gatineau Beerfest is fully committed to this philosophy by encouraging people to «Drink less, drink better”.
