In the summer of 2008, Étienne brews his first beer in the basement of the family home. His initial interest turns into a real passion as Étienne attempts to learn more on the subject by any means. What began as a hobby eventually becomes a serious career plan: Étienne becomes an apprentice at Laboratoire Maska, participates in an internship at the Microbrasserie des Beaux-Prés, and officially becomes a brewer at Brasseurs Illimités. During all that time, Étienne kept perfecting his own beer at home.
Due to the popularity of his products, Étienne requests the help of his brother Maxime, who’s in the field of management and administration. The brothers decide to pair up to develop the Mille-Îles Brewery. For three years, they work on the project. They eventually join forces with Serge and Pascal, lifelong friends and experienced entrepreneurs, who will guide them in their dream of producing and distributing their own beers.
Our mission is to respect as closely as possible the greatest brewing traditions, both in the recipes and in the methods. Our mandate is to expand the consumers’ taste in order to amplify the interest and demand for Quebec’s microbrewery products.
We want our products to be the most recognized in terms of quality standards, while providing accessibility for all types of consumers. We are committed to using premium ingredients to offer products that stand out, and provide impeccable service to our customers.
