Default Beer in Ottawa / hull area?

Hey guys. This one is for the Canadian's here. I'm driving from Toronto to Ottawa this weekend and was thinking about spending an afternoon in Hull. Can anyone reccomend good places in hull to buy beer? I've got lcbo in Ottawa but I'm hoping to find some new stuff in hull I can't find around here.

Directions would be awesome if you've got them, I don't know Ottawa really, and my French is rusty to say the least.

Thanks in advance

Im looking to buy a few bottles of beer for the weekend. I'm hoping that since Quebec beer sales are not restricted to provincial contolled stores and beer can be sold through private convience and grocery stores, I will be able to find stuff that the LCBO locations in the GTA don't carry. For example local French brews or imports the LCBO doesn't stock

You should be able to get quite a number of different brews in Hull that you wouldn't get in TO. I'm not familiar with any areas on the mainland, so I'm not going to be much help to you, but if you had joined the Members of Barleyment - MoB FAQ, you could have had an answer in minutes.

If you ever come back to Hull/Gatineau.. you should go to Costco or Metro for the generic beer.. Heineken and Rickard's products usually go on sale for $25 for a 2/4. If you want to try something special.. Buy the Boreal. They make excellent beer. Great variety too.. Also try Houblon d'achouffe! it's an imported Belgian beer.

Broue Ha ha is my favourite followed by Le Trappe. Both have an excellent selection of Quebec micros.

I was just at Brouehaha over the holidays, and picked up some stuff. I was a bit disappointed in their selection, but it may have had something to do with the holidays. The last time I was there, I went to trapp a fromage.. they had a great selection and AMAZING cheese selection.
