About us

The Mondial de la bière was founded in Montreal in 1994 by a trio of beer lovers, including Jeannine Marois, the event’s president since 2002. A unique and friendly tasting event, it is considered a doorway to the brewing industry in Quebec and around the world. In addition to its professional side, enriched by the Mbeer conference, the Mbeer school of bierology and the Greg Noonan Mbeer Contest, the festival offers visitors an education about beer. The 26th edition of the Mondial de la bière in MONTREAL will be held from May 22-25 2019.

Over the years, it has become the most important international beer festival in America and its reputation extends worldwide. Following this success, there are now two other events on the international scene, and an association: 

The Mondial de la bière SAO PAULO, Brazil, with a second edition on May 31st and JUNE 1st and 2sd 2019.

The Mondial de la bière PARIS, France, which will be the eighth edition of the Mondial de la bière in Europe, will be held from May 17th, 18th and 19th 2019.

The Mondial de la bière RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, with a sixth edition on SEPTEMBER 4 to 8, 2019.

The Association MONDIAL de la BIERE EUROPE was founded in 2012 to offer a chance to discover beer’s culture to the general public. It creates opportunities to sample beers from 5 continents in a variety of events and public fairs.

The Mondial de la bière is a member of Festivals et Événements Québec [FEQ], of l’Association des microbrasseries du Québec [AMBQ], of the Brewers Association [BA] and of Tourisme Montréal.
