McAuslan Ales - another award winning product!
McAuslan Brewing began operations in January of 1989. Located at 4850 St-Ambroise Street in Montreal's St-Henri district, it has established itself as Quebec's foremost micro-brewery.
The brewery launched its first beer in February 1989. St-Ambroise Pale Ale was an immediate success. Its distinctive hoppy-ness and clear reddish hue set it apart and gained it an instant following. Shortly after, McAuslan Brewing became the first micro-brewery to offer its product in bottles.
McAuslan ales include: St-Ambroise Pale Ale & Oatmeal Stout, Griffon Extra Pale Ale & Red Ale, Apricot Wheat Ale and McAuslan Cream & Vintage Ale.
McAuslan also now brews and distributes Moosehead and Carlsberg beer.
Catherine Castanguay from McAuslan's looks forward to welcoming you and having you sample their variety of different products.

Join us on the Bishop's float in the Sherbrooke Christmas Parade
Everyone is welcome to join us on the Bishop's float (courtesy of Transport Robert) on Sunday, November 27th.
We will begin decorating the float at 9:00 am at parc Jacques Cartier. The parade itself begins at noon from the park, finishing up in downtown Sherbrooke two hours later.
A number of students will be riding on the float, along with our Gaiter mascot. Alumni (and families!) participation would certainly ensure a great day and a full float!
If you are interested in helping decorate or simply riding on the float please email Matt McBrine, or call him at 819-822-9600 ext. 2266.
Hope to see you on the float!
