The À La Dérive project is motivated by the creation of quality craft beers, the environment and culture. We want to use ingredients from the region to make our beers to reduce our ecological footprint, promote the circular economy and create products that reflect the great diversity of Quebec flora. In addition to being a positive economic lever in the Pointe-Gatineau sector, À La Dérive is part of a logic of sustainable development. The social and cultural roots of the project will revolve around poetry evenings, art exhibitions and one-off creative events.
