This is the only place you need to stop for beer in Trois-Rivieres. It focuses exclusively on craft beer with the only macros being Sapporo & Guinness.
The staff is extremely knowledgeable about all the products they carry. Xavier, the owner, is a beer geek and is also willing to put beer aside for you and goes well beyond your usual store. The selection almost rivals Peluso except he has a bit less of filler. He also gets some exclusive beers not available in Montreal (1st batch of the regular Buteuse & Triple Cap from Brasseurs & Freres).
Prices are reasonable and the store is clean, neatly organized and there's a price on everything which is very useful. They also sell everything in singles.
This is the only place you need to come to when passing through Trois-Rivieres. A must stop.

Stopped in TR on the way to Quebec City. A great store that has an impressive selection of local craft beer, with most bottles that I saw in Montreal represented here. A few imports, but that's not why you came here, right. What sets this store apart is the all the other supporting products that they carry. Everything you need to go along with good beer from rillettes, compotes, cheese, cured meat, chocolate to glassware. Well laid out, and it's obvious the owners care about their business. Friendly service despite my abhorrent lack of french, the guy working gave us a good recommendation for lunch down the road at Gambrinus. It's easy to get to off the 40 - be sure to stop if you're passing by.

Georgeous layed beer store,well-lit, good shelves, with a patient and knowledgeable owner, this place would be a standout anywhere. And it's in a town. A lot of the best and latest Quebec micros, almost everything of what's available. My only real complaint: some of the latest and greatest is listed on the site but was not available here, nor in the backup store I was sent to down the street. Lots of other gifts here, for others to eat and enjoy. Like a great wine store, only beer-themed. Come here after drinking down the street.
Update Nov 2010: Most up-to-date website on what's new in bottles in Quebec.
