Diverse and festive entertainment
New this year, beer tasting workshops will be led by Stephen Beaumont, widely recognized in the global
beer and spirits industries for over thirty years. He is the author of several books on beer including The
World Atlas of Beer and The Beer & Food Companion, and has judged in many international tasting
competitions, including the World Beer Awards, the Brussels Beer Challenge, and the Canada Beer Cup.

“I am thrilled to participate in this special edition of the Mondial de la bière where hop enthusiasts
naturally converge. Beer is more than a drink; it’s a sensory and cultural experience that unites people
from around the world. I am honoured to share my passion and knowledge during the beer tasting
workshops at the Mondial de la bière, where we will explore together the flavours and aromas that make
each beer a work of art,” emphasizes Stephen Beaumont.

In addition to these workshops, the general public will also be invited to participate in blind tastings. In
the context of this competition, participants will have the opportunity to test their taste buds by blind
tasting five beers specially brewed for the 30th edition of the Mondial de la bière. Six tasting sessions are
planned per day, hosted by beer enthusiast and specialist Guy Lévesque.

A special show with flavours from Belgium, Brazil, France, and here!
For its 2024 edition, the Mondial will welcome an exceptional number of foreign brewers and owners,
with a particular emphasis on imports from Belgium (21), Brazil (9), and France (8) with exclusive products
grouped in dedicated pavilions. A total of 70 breweries from outside Quebec and over 200 imported beers will be featured.

Quebec and Canadian products will also be highlighted, with visitors having access to a space reserved for some of the winning beers of the Canada Beer Cup. They will also have the chance to taste the 27 beers specially brewed in Quebec for the 30th edition of the Mondial de la bière and participate in a blind tasting competition to determine the grand winner of this vintage!
