Festibière d'hiver , Gatineau's winter beer festival has moved to a new location this year! Now inside the Canadian Museum of History (formerly Civilisation), it's much more accessible and is considered part of the National Capital Regions' Winterlude celebrations!!
Running Friday January 31st : 5 pm to 2 am and Saturday February 1st : 5 pm to 2 am it promises to be a good time! Along with beer (of course) the weekend program includes winter activities, live entertainment and gourmet appetizers to munch on! Not to mention the enormous bonfire to warm you up if you venture outside.
There is lots of parking on-site and on nearby streets, however if bussing is your thing, the STO is also offering a free bus ride to the museum if you show your Festibière ticket.
Tickets are $10 for the weekend and can be purchased either at one of the outlets below or online. Tickets for the beer and cheese pairings workshop (in french only) with Mario D'Eer are $15.
