40 LOCAL MICROBREWERIES WILL PRESENT THEIR PRODUCTS
More than 30,000 festival-goers are expected at this large gathering of microbreweries that will reconnect with the public for the first time since the summer of 2019. In order to meet beer newbies and connoisseurs, more than 85 local exhibitors, including 40 Quebec microbreweries, will be present. This year, festival-goers will be able to discover no less than 17 new microbreweries participating for the first time.
In addition to being an event of discovery and tasting, the Laval Beer Festival’s mission is to educate
festival-goers about the brewing world while promoting exchanges with brewers from the four corners of Quebec. Microbreweries, local products, cider houses, distilleries, food trucks, and more will be there to offer a range of products and a festive experience.
MUSIC ON THE LOTO-QUÉBEC STAGE
The sixth edition of the FESTIVAL DES BIÈRES DE LAVAL will host on its outdoor stage four musical shows that will feature artists known and appreciated by all!
On Friday, July 15, Les Chiens de allées will perform at 7:30 p.m. It is around the expression “life of dogs” that Les Chiens de Ruelles have gathered. Mononc’Serge will take the stage at 9:00 p.m. with his new show Mononc’Serge and the crosmonautes. The special space trio will present songs from the new album L’AN 8000 as well as a good handful of older tunes, all in a futuristic setting.
On Saturday starting at 8:00 p.m., artist Lydia Képinski will take the stage to warm up the crowd before the legendary Bran Van 3000 performs a set. The Montrealer who has just emerged this spring will enjoy
this opportunity to present his second album, Since, which navigates between a pop
satirical alternative and a disco sound converted into inventive music with boundless energy.
The festival welcomes the anticipated return of Bran Van 3000 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their first album Glee! More than a band, Bran Van 3000 is a collective, the meeting of architects of sound and rhythm. The music of the iconic group features a variety of genres such as pop, electro, hip-hop, house, folk, soul, dance, and groove. James Di Salvio, the tall conductor of the collective, has made the band’s music a staple here and around the globe. After a long absence, the collective is finally preparing to reconnect with its audience!
On Sunday, at 2:00 p.m., we will have the chance to welcome Mara Tremblay. A great pioneer of Quebec alternative pop rock, her music is characterized by strong writing, poetry, and her way of putting words to moments of life.
Comedy shows will also be presented on Saturday and Sunday afternoons on the Loto-Quebec stage.
