Taking over a renovated Griffintown church that's fast becoming one of the city's most talked-about event spaces, La Cuvée d'hiver is back for its 4th edition at Salon 1861.

From February 25th - 27th,  in the context of the Montréal En Lumière Festival, guests will have the chance to discover the best in Quebec microbrewery, with a fine selection of beer, whiskeys and spirits along with some of the most popular street food in Montreal. Lively music and dance, and a renowned 50s vibe to boot, and we're calling the 3-day event an essential stop on your Nuit Blanche circuit!

Highlights aplenty...
Jean-François Pilon, president of Whisky Montréal, will be on-hand to share his experience and give valuable advice to newcomers and experts alike in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, while Le Domaine Pinnacle will present its last creation, Canadian Shield, and the Burgundy Lion Pub staff will introduce cocktail lovers to new whiskey-based drink recipes. More on the church's second floor as beer specialist Miki Trudel gives us her microbrewery menu that includes Les Trois Mousquetaires, Beau’s, Brasseur de Montréal, LesSœurs Grises, Le Trou du Diable, and McAuslan.

On the foodie side, the tex-mex cuisine of Tejano, the famous pulled pork sandwich from Pas d’cochon dans mon salon, a beer donut creation from Crémy Pâtisserie (intriguing with a name like 'Sang d'encre'), a revisited jerky by Pubsters, and the great street food from La Confrérie will all headline, not to mention allow for more alcohol sampling!

And All That Swing...
To kick things off visitors are invited to the Happy Hour Thursday Confession, while the McAuslan stage will host musical entertainment as follows: 

Thu, 25th - Kath Biss 
Fri, 26th - Hellbound Hepcats 
Sat, 27th - Loose Pistons and Dj Don Mescal from Speakeasy Electro Swing 

Topping it off, a swing dance troupe will perform for all festival-goers present. Expect to participate in the dance-along!
