Mondial de la bière

Now here’s a festival that got my attention: Mondial de la bière, in Montréal, June 1 through 5. Some 340 beers and a beer conference even, featuring six beer experts holding 45-minute seminars. Sounds très cool.

The beer experts at the conference ("Conference MBeer05") are Stephen Beaumont, Jean-Claude Colin, Mario D’Eer, Fred Eckhardt, Tony Forder and Charlie Papazian.

Oh yes, and the admission is free, with $1 tastings (3 to 4 ounces per tasting), and $8 for a tasting mug.
