Canada tried prohibition… it lasted a year. Canadians love their beer, especially in Montreal, the second largest city in Canada. The city’s beer culture can feel more European than North American (French being the official language contributes to this). They have a number of craft breweries and brew pubs, along with many beer bars that instantly transport you to different parts of Europe.
Montreal is the birthplace of Molson, founded in 1786, and is the oldest brewery in North America. But these city folk don’t just appreciate a good lager. Many breweries and brew pubs around the city offer up local Belgian-style beers, which run the gamete from blondes and saisons, to maple infused. They have an annual beer festival that is growing every year and, to top it all off, their sister city in Israel is called Beersheba!
