Québec City Craft Breweries List

Microbreweries have come a long way in recent years, and Québec City is far from an exception. Personally, I’m pretty thrilled with the “drink local” movement—discovering a new brewery is a pretty good time. I love nosing out the flavours and subtleties of different beers, knowing they’re all crafted with pride by local brewers. Some brewpubs even pair their beers with delicious terroir cuisine. Heaven!
