Located in Chicoutimi downtown nearby the Saguenay river, offers the typical choice of beer. I would recommend the stouted one and even the blonde one (remember me the Seigneurial Blonde (the old one)). The prices are ok, even cheap.

Nice location, great view of the river form the many terrasses on both floors. This is an old, semi-historic building they converted into a brewpub. It’s only been open since the summer of 2004 and they seem to be showing some potential. 7 Beers were on tap, and one bottled offering. A little something for everyone, blonde ales and lagers, a decent Wit, a good Stout. Nothing out of this world, but mostly solid offerings and good crossover brews, perfect for this region who hasn’t been exposed to Better Beer very much. The Beergeeks, like me, might like La Voie Maltée better, but this is a great place to get people started on craft Beer. They often host tastings and conferences, have live music on weekends and discount nights on weekdays. The brewmaster wasn’t there during my last visit, so I couldn’t get a tour, but service was friendly enough, and the nachos were great.
