The fifth summer edition of Beauce Brass Bières et Cuisine, held on September 23 and 24, was a success. Record traffic invaded the Carpe Diem space this year. Several exhibitors were present at the event in St. George’s.
Fans of brewing products can buy beer from microbreweries, spirits from distilleries, cocktails, wine, non-alcoholic beverages, imported beer or even street food. More than twenty exhibitors showcased their various products to people who came for their discoveries or just for a drink with friends.
On Friday alone, more than 3,000 people crossed the entrance to the site. This data indicates to the organizers that the total of the two days can be as high as 9ooo.
“Yes, there is a madness here for this kind of event. […] Of the 20 microbreweries, half tell us that they are among the best breweries or two. They compare us to the festivals of Quebec and Gatineau,” rejoices organizer and founder of the event, Eric Doyon.
For upcoming releases, Beauce Brasse wants to look for remote microbreweries that don’t generally come to the regions. In addition, the organizers will adjust their layout according to this year’s favourites.
Performances were on schedule throughout the two activity days. On Friday, groups Coming Up and Starfish alternately greeted participants with Hommage aux Cowboys Fringuants. On Saturday, DJ Olivrez Style brightened up the venue. After that, singer Karen Luzon took the stage. Finally, the LBA Band concluded the evening.
The kids could have fun too because a circus artist and mini bulldozer were at Beauce Brass for them.
