Dominique Gosselin

A biochemist with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Ottawa, Dominique’s passion for beer began towards the end of CEGEP. Seeing that his budget couldn’t keep up with his passion, he started brewing in his parents’ basement in the early 2000s, figuring he could now try any style he wanted, for much less money, without being limited to what was on the market.

That was all it took to ignite the passion that was born. From that moment on, Dominique knew he wanted to become a professional brewer. It wasn’t long before he had the idea of starting Gatineau’s first microbrewery, and at the genesis of this project he went to Belgium to perfect his knowledge at the Institut Meurice in Brussels. His project, and that of his associates at the time, came to fruition in 2009, and he was at the brewery’s helm for 13 years, until 2022.

During his brewing career, our brewmaster also taught future sommeliers and professional brewers. Today, Dominique is devoting himself to his new baby, Collines de Bonnes Bières , to create beers made from 100% Quebec ingredients.
