For the past 5 years, my sisters and I (along with various other friends) take on one of Montreal's funnest ways to kick off the summer- BEERFEST!

From June 6th-10th from 11 am - 9 pm anyone 18+ can enjoy the pleasure of one of the many festivals our city has to offer. Unfortunately the organizers have opted once again to hold the event in Montreal's Place Bonaventure- although it provides a great deal of indoor space (which is great if it's raining) the beer just doesn't taste the same without the option of lounging out on the grass, in the sun.

Despite having to stuff ourselves down in the concret box that is PB, I am confident that my sisters, our friends and I will make the sacrifice (with memories of sunny Beerfests in the back of our minds) and head out to the 19th annual Beerfest! If you have never been (and enjoy beer) it is an event worth checking out. It's a 5-day festival that showcases (surprise, surprise) beer! Beer is not the only thing available though... there are often food stands- sausages, cheese and fries seem to be regulars too.
