Our Story

From autobody shop to microbrewery

Founded in 2020, Microbrasserie Cardinal is located in a former autobody shop in the heart of Hudson, a small town less than an hour outside of Montreal (close to the Ontario border). The garage doors are rolled open on warm summer days, while a lively weekly program of live music, trivia, and comedy keep the good times going through the long winter nights. Our beer is now also available in stores, pubs and restaurants throughout Quebec.
