Exhibition – Hoist a cold one: 400 years of Quebec beer Until June 2023 
Dive into the fascinating story of beer in Quebec, all the way from New France to the present day. Learn about its role in local traditions and how it has become an integral part of Quebec’s cultural identity. 

Hop to it 

Quebecers have been hoisting a cold one to celebrate, socialize, and kick back and relax for over 400 years. Although it’s known as a casual, unpretentious beverage, beer is intimately linked to Quebec’s history, heritage, and agriculture. 
Beer tells us a lot about the social and economic life of the province in the way it was marketed and the places it was consumed. The emergence and proliferation of microbreweries is a testament to the scale of beer culture in the province. Now, gourmet circuits are actually inspiring people to explore rural Quebec. 

Something for everyone 
Although beer is an adult drink, children are invited to play scientific, archaeological, and cultural games in a special kids zone while their parents take in the exhibition.  Art workshops, lectures, talks, and science experiments will also be held alongside the exhibition, including during Halloween, the holiday season, and spring break.  The exhibition is produced by Société de développement culturel de Terrebonne (SODECT) with financial support from Fonds de Solidarité FTQ.
