229/2450) Microbrasserie Maltéus, Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Quebec: NEIPA Double IPA by Microbrasserie Maltéus of Quebec:  **; 7.5%, 85 ibu; brewed with Simcoe, Amarillo, Mosaic and Citra hops;  bitter, earthy, resinous nose; pine, resin, and a hint of citrus flavours; I found it not quite so not so New England-ish;

This is a great place - very welcoming.  Even though the bartender did not speak English we figured things out with our fractured French.  There is  no kitchen.  You can bring your own food, there is even a microwave there.  Even better, the peanuts and pretzels are free.

230/2251) Microbrasserie Maltéus:  IPA by Microbrasserie Maltéus of Quebec:  **1/2; 6.0%, 55 ibu; brewed with Rakau and Galaxy hops; citrusy, tropical nose; pine and citrus flavours;

What I came to marvel at was how many very small towns in Quebec boast their own very fine brewpubs.

231/2451) Microbrasserie La Memphré, Magog, Quebec:  Double Mention by Microbrasserie La Memphré of  Quebec:  **1/2; 8%, 80 ibu; translates as double chin; resiny, fruity;

La Memphré is a monster said to live in nearby Lake Memphremagog, akin to the Loch Ness monster among others.

232/2453) Microbrasserie La Memphré:  Distorsion by Bières Jukebox of Quebec:  **; a 7% American IPA; grapefruit nose; resiny, piney flavours;

This was a guest tap or, rather, a fut invité.
