Moar beer is always nice. Blonde d'été en plein hiver.
Ping Pong IPA by Pixel microbrewery, from the Busbud office during my last week.
Akua by Le Bilboquet, an hibiscus IPA.
Les Brasseurs RJ's new Rocket NEIPA. Nothing fancy, just a good NEIPA! That view though.
Boldwin's Massif des Roses, playing with long exposure and light painting.
Chronique de Mai by Benelux, for my birthday!
Super shitty weather, still deserve my beer on top of the hike. Can't have a view though because the fog is super thick. The Kiwiberry by Le Naufrageur, brewery of the same city. Extremely good smoothie ale with kiwi and strawberries.
Took the Caribou Sure No.3 by Pit Caribou to the top of Mont Sainte-Anne in Percé, Gaspésie.
This beer is fancy as fuck, Dunham style, it's an assembly of sour beer and a Berliner Weisse, aged 18 months in pinot noir casks with extra hops, peaches and camerises.
Tasty as fuck, loved it.
Always drinking local, this Cuivrée au thé by La Barberie on top of Mont Albert in the middle of Gaspesie National Park.
Took a homebrew on top of Mont Saint-Hilaire! The first version of the Session NEIPAnanas, a pineapple NEIPA.
Had another one of those, this time to celebrate summiting the Blow Me Down trail. Great beer, fantastic views.
Same spot, different beer. We ended the hike with that British IPA by Quidi Vidi.
Another one of those big cans by Western Newfoundland Brewing Co., this time an Oat Heavy Pale Ale called Green Gardens Haze. Super strong cereal taste, I loved it.
I also love the fact they recommend on the label, to drink half the can, fish a trout, put the trout in the can, put the can on the fire, and eat the so cooked trout with another can of the same beer. Sadly, I didn't get to try this recipe as we didn't manage to fish a trout.
While we couldn't go to the summit with the gear we had in those conditions, was still enjoyable to drink that 1892 Traditional Ale by Quidi Vidi brewery during the hike. It was so cold that some ice formed inside the can so we definitely didn't experience the full taste profile of that beer.
Got my hand on some western Newfoundland 1 L tall cans of extra malted oat heavy beers. Those were fucking delicious and I wish I could find them in Montreal.
This one is the Wild Cove Old World Pub Ale, a cream ale by Western Newfoundland Brewing Co.
Quidi Vidi's Mummer's Brew on top of Skerwink hike. Super windy day, was a huge pain in the ass to take pictures of that beer because the wind would actually blow it down all the time. Also it was like 10 centimeters away from a huge cliff and I was 10 centimeters away from the beer, which if you make the math, is still pretty fucking close from the cliff.
Open Saison On Crabapple by Quidi Vidi brewery. Can hardly drink more local than that.
Dieu du Ciel's Été Indien, an extremely tasty mango beer that I'm a big fan of, from the top of Tremblant.
Ironically, drinking Sutton Brouërie's Dindon Sauvage on top of Bromont. A dry hopped sarrasin Brett ale brewed in collaboration with Dieu du Ciel. The taste of this beer reminds me for some reason of the feeling/smell of picking raspberries in the mountain when I was a kid, and I'm sad it was a seasonal beer and they never brewed more of it.
Unibroue's Éphémère Bleuet on the lake.
Génépi beer by the Brasserie du Mont-Blanc. You can't have a beer more alpine than that.
Savored this Grimbergen Alliance de Pêches after hiking the Dent de Crolles next to Grenoble. Real tasty.
Was sipping on that blond Affligem while boating around the Calanques. I spent more time on that shot that I'm willing to admit.
That iconic Leffe Ruby in the middle of Provence, next to waterfalls. Probably one of my favorite red beer, such a great balance between fruitness, woodsiness, without being too sweet.
Again in Magog, took a couple shots of that Belle Gueule Brassin des Fêtes in front a waterfall. First one with a long exposure, second one with a very fast one.
Belle Gueule Hefeweizen on the iced Magog lake. Refreshing, even though we didn't really need to be refreshed after that hike in snowshoes.
Took that good old blond Leffe all the way up the Croix de Belledonne, the biggest summit around Grenoble. Tastes fantastic at 3000 meters of elevation.
Classic Affligem in the lake.
Nice good Leffe Triple on top of the hike in the middle of Provence. Tasty, strong and refreshing at the same time. Can't go wrong with Belgian beer.
Together with the Summer Shandy box, we also got a box of those Coors Banquet. Not a great beer, but the spectacular view made it taste much better than it should have.
Amazing hike in the Canadian Rockies, well deserved beer on top. For the story, we grabbed a huge box of those Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy at the duty free when crossing the border back to Canada, and I can tell you they were cheap as fuck, and super tasty and refreshing.
Went to the waterfalls with a couple friends. Classic Boréale Rousse, but great background.
