    I had a Yakima last week and was disappoionted as it seemed to be full of diacetyl. I think I am quite sensative to this. I know they made 3 experimental batches with 3 different yeasts, and have settled on 1 for future batches. Hopefully not the one used in the batch I tried. Looking forward to trying the next batch!!

    When did Le Castor Yakima IPA become rare? I see it available all over Gatineau.

    Being on the south shore, i guess they get less than Montreal because it was sold out at a few places. I heard there's more coming in though so i'll stock up :)

    I have to revive this after having another (or 2) of the Yakima. Excellent IPA. Might bump 1 from my top 5 but who's really counting...I am happy they settled on the recipe they did, because I believe this might be the best packaged IPA in Quebec. Too bad I find all these bombers in Quebec to be a little overpriced.

    I have to name more than 5, sorry.

    St-Ambroise Russian Imperial Stout

    Bilboquet Corriveau Imperial Stout

    Dunham - Leo's Early Breakfast IPA

    Dieu du Ciel - Immoralité, Herbe a Détourne, Solstice d'Hiver, Péché Mortel ...and many more. Gotta mention Aphrodisiaque and Rosée d'Hibiscus. DDC's beers are dirt cheap here near Montreal and I always have over a hundred beers from them, mostly because I stock on their good beers they make once a year.

    I took the thread title to mean in a labeled bottle as opposed to growers or bottles with tags. I'm sorry I can't feel too sorry for your vast selection of great beers compared to Ontario. :D

    No order. A couple ties. This is much harder than it seems at first. It's really cool to see all the changes that have happened since this thread was first started.
    • Le Castor Yakima IPA/Auval IPAs
    • Charlevoix Vache Folle Milk Stout
    • Dunham Black IPA/XXX Tripel
    • Le Castor Farmhouse Houblon
    • DDC Herbe à Détourne/Moralité

    a couple new ones aside from the above mentioned.

    Benelux Chronique De Mars
    Rigor Mortis Brandy
    Dunham Double Dose Sauternes
    Pit Caribou Brett Session ipa
    Tribale/Ma brewery Pale ale


    anything Auval is definitely worth a try, Hopfenstark is usually solid, and most Cheval Blanc house/brewpub iipas are freaking delish, xl5 and rayon vert
