Fort and Beer

August 30, 31 and September 1st

From noon to 5 p.m., visitors will have the opportunity to discover the history of beer and alcoholic beverages in New France and Lower Canada.

On this occasion, visitors will discover the significance of the production and consumption of alcohol by nobility, inhabitants, and the military from the 17th to the 19th century, thanks to our heritage interpreters.

Beer and alcohol made its appearance in the French colony with the arrival of the first explorers, soldiers, priests, and inhabitants, and has remained an important element in the lifestyle of the entire population.
