J Answers You: Finding your beer. (Montreal)

So I was asked in the comments:

"J, where do you find your beer?"

Good question! If you like beer, its important to know where you can find some. Now, I can't really list places outside of Montreal, as when I'm out of town I tend to go to bars and not shops, but I can give you a few pointers as to where you'll be able to find some nice places for beer in Montreal. Do note I'm talking about real beer here. If you just want a case of bud, go to your local super market (and stop reading this blog until you grow a taste for real beer).

*the best*
Le Grand Duc - rue Mapie, Longueille.
By far some of the best selection around. This is where I go when I want something I can't find Anywhere else. They've had at least good 500 different kinds of beers on their shelves at one point or another. The prices are very reasonable considering some of the beer they have there too.

Le Paradis de la Bière - Corner Beaubien and De Lanaudière.
Good selection of local beers and a few decent choices in terms of foreign beers. Low priced too.

Métro Joannette Supermarket - l’Église in Verdun.
One of the best spots to go for local beers. They have some of the best selection out there. Can be a bit pricey though.

Épicerie Au Coin Duluth - Duluth Est.
Great selection of local beers, low prices and awesome service too (one of my favorites since its not far from where I live). The owner loves his beer and he always goes out of his way to try and find some nice local bottles.


I also have a few other places I sometimes go to. If you guys want me to list them, I'll make a "Finding your beer part 2" next week.

  6. Remember always ask your local beer warehouse if they can get a beer for you. If they don't carry it and you're willing to buy cases at a time more than likely they will try to order it for you.

  14. When I need beer, I just go down to one of the local bars. They usually have a special "beer of the week" or something.

  16. The town I just moved away from had an International Wine Center with an amazing beer selection. Now I live a lot smaller, rural town and it sucks. I was so spoiled. I used to make 6ers of Harpoon, Bells and Chimay on the reg. Now my selection is very limited.
