In March, a new address was added with the inauguration of a second pub in Montreal, À la Fût Montréal. In an urban western atmosphere, we find the beers and the menu from St-Tite, along with a few guest keg lines.
Production increased in the spring with new brewing facilities. These facilities tripled the fermenting beer capacity from 62 to 175 hectolitres (hl) in volume, using 20 and 40 hl fermenters. Add to that a first 4,200-litre vat, a new automated gravity bottling line - only for specialty beers aged in oak barrels and vats barrels - and a new canning line.
In June, the "P'tite Cocotte" beer was featured on the Plains of Abraham in Québec City, as one of the 3 official beers for Québec's National Holiday in the Capital.
During the summer, another innovative project, led by the ambitious À la Fût team, was launched, Village Western Kapibouska. Village Western Kapibouska is a small reproduction of the historical western town of St-Tite, a real taste of the Wild West. Every Saturday during the summer, families and tourists are invited to stroll through, with a blade of grass in their mouth and a cowboy hat on their head, as they enjoy a variety of unique attractions!
