For a second year, the InterContinental Montréal hotel is teaming up with the Mondial de la bière

MONTREAL, May 22, 2014. – Continuing its mission as a world-wide international hotel chain, the InterContinental Montréal hotel is proud to announce that it is renewing its partnership with the largest international beer festival in North America. Through this association, we will once again be offering our guests the opportunity to enjoy an experience that is typical of Montreal. The Mondial de la bière runs from June 11 to 15, 2014 at the Montreal Convention Centre and on the outdoor esplanade. During this 21st edition, close to 100,000 devotees are expected to come and taste more than 500 local and international beers, meads and ciders, 235 of which are new products.

In this spirit of discovery and openness to the world, numerous activities on a variety of themes will be happening within our five-star hotel. Inspired by last year’s success, chef Matthieu Saunier will once again be in charge of pairing the food and beers on the menu for the Flaveurs, Bières et Caprices evening, which will take place on June 12 in the hotel’s Salon Maisonneuve. Eight dishes inspired by beers from different countries will be served on this special evening, offering our taste buds a complete world tour!

And in addition to his usual menu at the Osco! restaurant, the chef will be reinventing gourmet dishes showcasing flavours that hint at hops, as part of the Sorties Flaveurs - Montréal. Finally, on June 12, 13 and 14, our Sarah B. bar will be welcoming festival-goers, who’ll be able to extend their evening of discovery by sampling imported beers in the bar’s cosy, quiet atmosphere (open until 2 am).

Saint-Jacques street: Montreal’s Wall Street

In 1672, François Dollier de Casson, superior of the Sulpicians, drew up a new urban map for Ville-Marie and gave names to the new streets. Saint-Jacques Street was possibly named after one of two people. First, Jean-Jacques Olier de Verneuil, one of the founders of the Société Notre-Dame, which itself played a role in the founding of Montreal. During the second half of the 19th century, Saint Jacques Street lost its residential character and became the center of Montreal’s first financial district, a true “Wall Street” of Canada.
