Two Biologists teach Montreal how good craft brews can be
A little over two decades ago, Stephane Ostiguy and Jean-Francois Gravel met while studying science at McGill University. Neither got their degrees — but they do make some of the best beer in the world at Dieu du Ciel, Montreal’s best craft brewery.
Montreal is the largest city in Quebec, Canada’s renegade Francophone province. It’s just a quick jump via plane from much of the East Coast of the U.S.; more importantly, it’s filled with cultural treasures, delicious food, world-class beer, and is just a short drive from some of the most beautiful countryside in the world. Here’s what you should do when you visit.
Chef and Co-owner of Joe Beef
Montreal has been good to the co-owner and co-chef of Joe Beef. But it’s the country that inspires him — and in turn, inspires his restaurant, a relatively small place in Montreal’s Little Burgundy neighborhood that has, almost despite itself, become one of the city’s most celebrated dining spots. We recently sat down with McMillan to discuss all things Montreal, the importance of classic intentions, and drinking lots of Burgundy wine.
We test 10 huge Imperial IPAs
From the Archives: Over the past 20 years, the way to make a double IPA (otherwise known as DIPA or “imperial IPA”) hasn’t really changed: roughly double the ingredients that would go into a normal IPA and you get a double IPA. As the weather changes, more and more stores begin cellaring their heavy winter stouts and replacing them with these hop- and malt-forward beasts. For those looking to expand their palates, doubles offer the citrus hop and bready malt flavors of regular IPAs, but amplified, and with plenty more complexity to spare. We tasted ten of our favorites.

Great Excuses For A Rubdown
We spend a lot of time outside, and the reality is that we’re often more fastidious about taking care of our bikes and boards than we are our skin. News flash: even if you don’t burn, you should be doing something to block the UV rays from permeating your dermis. These sunscreen options should cover whatever type of protection you need.
