My go to place for beer grocery!
All beers are by category and you find most of Quebec's micro-brewers' selection.
It's hard not to spend over a 100$ when you come in honestly!!! Every time i go, there are so many new brews to discover... Of course since you buy the beers individually, it's quite costly but for a maniac for me it's perfect, i'd rather drink 50 different beers than 50 times the same. So i'm willing to pay more for variety!
40 minutes from Montreal right alongside Bilboquet brew pub in St-Hyacinthe, also worth a stop!

So i took a little road trip yesterday to Otterburn Park to get some chocolates from La Cabosse d'or as a surprise for my wife and decided to check this place out since it was only about 20 minutes away. It's about 5-10 minutes from Highway 20 going to Quebec City. I almost got lost navigating through the town (even with Google Maps) but i eventually found it and i'm glad i did.
It looks like an antique store from the outside and inside it is very nicely set up with a sort of general store/antique store feel. Other than beers, they have specialty coffee with different machines for it as well as candies/chocolates/etc...
The beers are sorted by style and most of the breweries are here. They had one type of Hopfenstark left which surprised me since i didn't think it made it this far. Also there was Bieropholie, Brasseurs & Freres, La Barberie, Dieu du Ciel, Micro du Lac St-Jean, etc... Most beers are at room temp with a small sampling in the cooler.
The guy i spoke with knew his beers, talking about which ones he liked and what he recommended. The prices were fairly good depending on the beers. Some were inexpensive while others were a bit over-priced.
This is a very charming store and a great selection for the area. Worth a detour in my opinion.

Pignon sur rue on Cascade street, downtown Saint-Hyacinthe.
this place offer a good variety of Quebec micro-brews. They also sells all kind of products
deluxe like coffee,chocolate,fine waters and terroir products. wich is interesting.
The selection of beers is fine, but I,m just wandering how they could sells beer that are not refrigerate..there is only one freezer to keep a small number of bottle in a cold temperature.
All the other bottles, and it's the majority are standing on tablets on the wall...
All in all I appreciate this place, the brews are classified by the genre. Good organisation.
It's a bit pricey, but this is a deluxe store..
