Mondial de la Bière 2015: Montréal’s ‘World of Beer’ in Photos

On June 10 to 14, 2015, Mondial de la Bière celebrated its 22nd annual “World of Beer” Festival in Montréal, Canada. Located at the Palais des Congrès in the city’s downtown district, the festival joined together beer industry veterans, media personnel, tourists and local consumers for a five-day celebration of unique beers brewed in Canada and around the world.

A total of 85 breweries exhibited at the international expo, with 40 microbreweries from Quebec alone touting 226 new brews never before seen or tasted at the Mondial de la Bière. In all, 523 beers, meads and ciders were served, with beer alone comprising of 475 sample products.

As guests of Ale Street News, journalist-photographer team, Patrick Phillips and I took on the massive exhibition with vigor. Armed with our media bracelets, mugs and map of the festival’s indoor and outdoor floor plans, we captured as much as we could of the brewers, products and attendance on the show floor, the fine rare beers available in the VIP lounge, and the general essence of the final weekend on Friday, June 12 and Saturday, June 13.

Please enjoy the photo gallery below, showing our journey from our first day in VIP, our introduction to the main event, some standout brewers, beers and cheese, and an overall glimpse of the mind-opening, palate-expanding experience of Montréal beer.
