    The best festival in North america it s “Mondial de la bière de Montreal ” . Since 1994, offering up over 500 different beers, meads, ciders and other beverages for taste testing consumption, the Mondial de la Bière typically ensures that more than 200 beers are new to the festival. Over 180000 visitors for the event in 2016
    And the entrance is free.
