So yesterday, i was heading to Drummondville to watch the Voltigeurs hockey game (a junior hockey team) with some friends and decided to check this place out.

So i come in and look to my right and i see some coolers so i head there for the beer. Not there, so i follow along the back until i hit a corridor. It's like a little sprawling maze almost to get to the beer. This place is a lot bigger than it looks from the outside.

The beer is kept in a huge refrigerated room at the end of the aforementioned maze that has a warehouse feel to it. There are shelves upon shelves of beer and they have pretty much all the Quebec micros. There are also stacks of beer cases around and behind the shelves. Bieropholie, AMB, B&F, Charlevoix among others are present. Prices seemed a bit steep for some of the beers, especially DDC. You can serve yourself, break open the packs of beer and select as you choose. I've seen some old stuff (some cellarable, some not) but in general beer seems good quality and freshness is probably preserved as there is low lighting and room is refrigerated.

Service was knowledgeable but i had called a few times and they knew what i was talking beer. When it came time to pay, one of the beers had no price and the owner knew the price right off the bat so he knows his stuff.

Definitely worth a stop if you're passing through as it's only about 5 minutes from highway 20. I would come here again for sure.

Wow, very surprising place. Wouldn't have thought it would be such a beer heaven. It has some of the rarest quebec's microbrews I've ever seen. I've even found a Orléans Summer special brew that must have been sitting there for near 6 months; nice pre aged beer.

Sadly it doesn't have hopfenstark, which I'd would have loved, but it's not that bad since the selection is THAT wide. Very inexpensive too. Most bottles were 1 or 2 bucks cheaper than what I'm used to pay. Anyway, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED place for anyone near the area.

I've seen other places where they sell beer but... THIS PLACE IS BIG !

The beer fridge is a MAZE... If you go in the first door, you'll be in the domestic section and it is quite impressive. Continue then turn left then right and it starts to smell good... You have some Leffe, Hoegaarden and all type of imported beers. Then you reach heaven. The Micro... You have to look around the place to find what you're lookin' for... Some of those beere are quite hard to reach... For instence, you can find a 6 pack of Péché Mortel behind a 6 pack of Blanche de Chambly... I know they try to keep it organized but I guess that the shelf space cannot be optimized... Nonetheless, great place to buy beer. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Small store on the corner of St-Pierre and Lemire in Drummondville.

This place looks like any other dépanneur, but once you step inside, you get a pleasant surprise. After walking past the aisles of standard dry goods and junk food, you reach the fridges - the largest beer fridge I've seen in any grocery store. It's a maze of shelves and cases stacked about 8 feet high. Turn a few corners and you reach the microbrew section. They have practically all of the Quebec microbreweries and tons of imported beer too. I would have to guess that there are around 300 kinds of beer available. The prices for micros are great compared to what I'm used to paying in Sherbrooke - most 6-packs are under 10$. I've had a few problems with less-than-fresh products, but that's often the price to pay when you have such a wide selection. Highly recommended.
