IPA anglaise de la Berline

An unusual berline (minecart), reminiscent of Cantley’s mining heritage. English IPAs are not well known because, with more modern IPAs in vogue, there is less on offer in this style of beer.  This makes them harder to explore. That’s exactly what we aim to do, to help you discover all this beer has to offer. With its beautiful amber, almost russet color, it reveals notes of caramel and cookie. Its slightly fruity side is pleasant, and what can we say about its well-balanced, biting bitterness? It pairs well with your favorite protein cooked on the grill or in a smoker, with your favorite sausages, as well as with spicy dishes. Try it with a good curry, butter chicken or our national dish, poutine.

Brune du colonel

Colonel Cantley was an important military officer whose name was given to a municipality in the Collines. In his honor, Brune du Colonel is making its way into our lineup. A 100% Quebec English brown ale with notes of baked toffee, roasted grains and hazelnuts that are easy to pair with food. The roasted grain notes go well with grilled, smoked, braised or simmered proteins, while the caramel notes are a great match for charcuterie, cheeses and chocolate desserts. Its low alcohol content of 4% makes it a beer that must be included in our regular selection.

Double IPA

Double IPA

The label features the bear, a well-chosen animal for this beer. Although it may seem heavy at 9% alcohol, its balance is quite interesting for pairing with a variety of dishes. A nice sweetness that leads to a frank bitterness is always interesting with a dish in sauce that tops grilled, braised or stewed meat. In addition, its honey and marmalade notes add a beautiful dimension to pairings with cheeses, pâtés and charcuterie. And what can we say about the possible pairings with desserts such as cheese cakes, simply Wow.

Stout de la Traverse

Stout

Too many people think that dark beers are strong and aggressive, but they’re not, and that’s exactly the case with Stout de la Traverse, a refreshing 4.5% stout. What is certain, however, is that black beers are brewed with roasted malts, giving them toasty, coffee and/or chocolate notes. There are even smoky notes, as in the Stout de la Traverse. These notes go very well with anything that comes out of the grill or smoker, but also with chocolate desserts and certain cheeses, especially ashy and blue-veined ones.

IPA du Nord-Est

IPA du Nord-Est

A beer’s bitterness brings an interesting element to the table. It has the power to cut through elements such as fat and spiciness. This IPA goes well with fatty dishes coming off the grill, as well as spicier Asian, Mexican and American dishes. In addition, its fruity notes will honor tropical fruits such as mango, pineapple or, more locally, peaches and melons.

Triple du Belvédère

Triple

One of the most versatile beer styles at the table is the Belgian Triple. Its great drinkability, fruity and spicy notes developed by the yeast, combined with sweet notes, are the perfect accompaniment to dishes with sauces, grilled, braised or stewed meats, as well as a wide variety of cheeses. Our Triple du Belvedere adds another layer with the addition of honey during the brewing process. Its floral notes add to its already well-stocked portfolio not to mention the particular notes of honey that marry well with maple syrup, opening up a world of discovery.

Rousse du Pont Rouge

Rousse irlandaise

This gorgeous red ale brewed with caramelized malts pairs easily with so many dishes. The Maillard reaction that occurs during the drying/cooking of the malts resonates well with the various ways in which the proteins are cooked. Whether we are talking about white meat, red meat or cheeses, when the surface of our protein cooks, it’s a good sign. What’s more, this ale goes well with a charcuterie and cheese platter accompanied by fresh bread.
