In Bas-Saint-Laurent, we like our food! That’s because our local products are out of this world. Land and sea have been very generous to us.
The Bas Saint-Laurent region has its own Beer Trail with five microbreweries Saint-André-de-Kamouraska, Pohénégamook, Rivière-du-Loup, Rimouski and Trois-Pistoles. The latest addition, Le Caveau des Trois-Pistoles, has nine beers on offer, each with its own story. La Bavarde (the chatty one), is named after the region’s oral tradition – a beer that loosens the tongue!
In Saint-André-de-Kamouraska, along historic highway 132, the Tête d’allumette microbrewery innovates with beers brewed over a wood fire. It has a splendid view over the river and the Charlevoix mountains.
In Pohénégamook, a microbrewery called Le Secret des Dieux, housed in a former monastery, has no less than 17 original beers. Holy moly!
In Rivière-du-Loup, your taste buds will be happy to discover the Fous Brassants. This microbrewery has created a multitude of beers that have quickly drawn the attention of connoisseurs by their diversity and quality.
In Rimouski, the Le bien, le malt microbrewery is the brainchild of a young, dedicated and creative team specializing in English-inspired beers.
All these regional products and many others are covered in inspired and inspiring articles published in a magazine called “À la BSL”, available free everywhere. Those are a lot of good reasons to visit the Bas-Saint-Laurent region!
