Raymond Beauchemin has gathered together, or created, dozens of delicious recipes that use real Quebec beers as a main ingredient. Where Quebec beers are not available the book includes a "Substitution Chart" that lists beers from across Canada and the U.S. that can be used in the recipes. From the first serious attempts to brew beer in Canada by the Recollet missionaries who accompanied Samuel de Champlain in 1612, to the advent of microbreweries and brew pubs in the mid-1980s, Raymond Beauchemin presents the colourful story of brewing in Quebec.
