Big things brewing in Gatineau!

Gatineau's brewers quickly made a name for themselves on the Québec microbrewery scene. Fans of hops and malt won't be disappointed by their stay in the Outaouais region! A nice cruise on Québec's longest river (no, it's not the St.Lawrence!) will open your appetite. After a nice meal and drink, take a walk through downtown Gatineau and discover its charms and businesses. Comes "happy hour", you will gladly taste other regional creations on a very inviting patio.
The Hull Marina, from where Paul's Boat Lines cruises leave, is just a short walk from Aubry Steet, a charming pedestrian street where Gainsbourg bistro-brewery is located. You'll be in the heart of Vieux-Hull, the epicenter of downtown Gatineau, and ready to explore Laval, du Portage, Eddy and other surrounding streets. When you get to Montcalm Street, wander along Brewery Creek before heading to nearby Les Brasseurs du Temps' beer museum.

Learn about the history of beer and its importance for the region at the brewery and beer museum at Les Brasseurs du Temps. Hull’s brewing tradition is closely linked to the region’s social and economic history.
