Chronique de Mars: Basically a Beer-Geek’s Wet Dream

An article by Noah Forrest Although I have written countless articles about Quebec craft beer, there are still so many breweries that I haven’t been able to talk about. One of the reasons is that many brew pubs don’t bottle their beers. I have a young family, I’m pretty much a home-body, and so I […]

Immoralité is here! Dieu du Ciel!’s Latest and Most Anticipated Momentum of 2016

An article by Noah Forrest In the past I’ve talked a bit about the IPA scene in Quebec, and how three or four years ago you’d be hard pressed to find a hoppy beer in this province that was particularly exceptional. There were a few one-offs here and there that were solid, but even then […]

The […]

Dieu du Ciel’s Herbe a Detourne – A Comparison; How Do Citra Hops Taste After a Year?

So I’m getting more and more excited these days about how beer changes and develops over time in the bottle.  Because I’m relatively new to the world of being a beer geek, it’s only now that I can really start doing proper age comparisons. One, because I have a cellar, and two because I’ve learned […]

Zesty Risotto Meets Quebec’s Collaborative Saison from Ca Va Brasser!

I’m well aware that my last beer and food article involved risotto, but I just like making it so much that I’m going to have to bore you again with another one. In my defense, the previous review was mostly written several months ago and I just posted last week, because I’m just that slow. […]
