I must apologize for neglecting my blogging responsibilities. I am terribly sorry. I have no excuse – just laziness really. After my vacation a week ago I never really got back in the groove of blogging. I’ll be better though, it won’t happen again. I promise.
I have a lot of lost time to make up for and do want to quickly cover the last half of my trip to one of Canada’s most impressive beer destinations, Quebec. So I figure bullets points and pictures are the way to go.
- Best Pub in Quebec City: L’Oncle Antoine. This pub is found in one of Quebec City’s older buildings, dating back to 1754 – new by European standards, old for Canadian standards. This pub boasts a number of great craft beers from Quebec and Belgium. Our last night in Quebec was spent in the L’Oncle Antoine pub enjoying a few pints before heading to a 24 hour poutine joint.
- Best Quebec Beer: Microbrasserie Ile d’Orleans Extra Strong Stout. This fantastic beer is brewed on Ile d’Orleans, an island in the St. Laurence River about 20 minutes out of Quebec City. This stout had a rich mouth feel with loads of roasted coffee and chocolate flavours – delicious.
- Best Poutine: Chez Ashton. This fast food joint is unique to Quebec and was a welcome change from McDonalds and Wendy’s. Poutine is right up there with pancakes when it comes to post pub eats
