À la Matawin
À la Matawin À la Fût microbrewery

À la Matawin is made with Matawin beer from the À la Fût microbrewery in Saint-Tite. This unique beer is aged six months in oak barrels, which gives it woody and fruity notes and makes it a wonderful complement to Quebec cheeses.

You’ll love the subtle grilled and fruity flavours of this full-bodied fondue.
