#145 Not Their First Rodeo with Mathieu Brouchu (Microbrasserie À la Fût)
Quebec is home to some legendary breweries, but not many have impacted the cultural zeitgeist more than À la Fût. Located in Saint-Tite, about 2 hours north east of Montreal just past Shawinigan, the town is most famous for their Western Festival held every September. We've been told it rivals Calgary's Stampede. The town and brewery itself make you feel like you're back in old Western times, with the bar resembling a saloon, horses adorning every street pole and friendly locals unironically wearing cowboy hats. We hung out with brewer Mathieu to crush some of their incredibly complex brews and spent the night at the auberge across the street. Very handy.
