Montreal, Quebec

I finally got official confirmation that I will be going to Montreal, QBC for the Siebel Brewing Microbiology Short Course in April.  I knew they wanted to send me, so I've done some pre-reasearch but I didn't know yet if I was actually getting to go or not, but now I am. 

Looking around on google maps it looks like there are a ton of little microbreweries.  I'll be staying on the SW side of town (Google calls it The Triangle), near the airport.  There's a subway station a couple blocks from my hotel so I'll be using mass transit, but I won't have a car (which is fine by me). 

I was hoping to make it out to Unibroue in Chambly which isn't as far as I thought (about an hour with train/bus combo) but of course they are closed Saturday and Sunday, which will be my two days off between the weeks of the class.  The only other thing in town that I've had their beer before is Dieu De Ciel.  Anything else I shouldn't miss? Especially if it's in the main downtown area or convenient to the subway.

I'll be in town for two weeks, classes will run most of the day (9-5ish) and I'll have evenings and the middle weekend to explore.

Les Trois Mousquetaires is across the river from Montreal in Brossard. LTM has some fantastic beers and would be well worth the trip. Their Baltic Porter and Doppelbock are well worth seeking out.

Oddly enough, just like Unibroue they are closed on Saturday and Sunday.  I will have some time in the evenings, but that weekend would be the best time for an hour long bus ride.  I'll seek out the bottles though if I see them.  There's a couple grocery stores around my hotel that I'll look to see what they carry. 

The Grand Cuvee series looks pretty impressive.  Thanks for the tip!
