What you'll do
I offer superb knowledge of the street art we'll be visiting, great conversation during our drinks, and intimate knowledge of the charms of the neighbourhood. Our street art walking tour/brewpub crawl begins at one of the best breweries in the city where we'll sit on the terrace and wet our whistles before walking through the mural district (McGill ghetto/the Plateau) along the way to another amazing brewpub. Our tour of street art will include major and minor works near the epicentre of the Mural District. I will talk about the history and function of street art as well as particular artists and their aims. We will compare the more commercialized work commissioned by the Mural Festival with unsanctioned street art and graffiti. We will explore at least one alleyway and may venture into two different art galleries that contribute to the street art scene in Montreal (if they're open). (I can even show you Leonard Cohen's house if there's interest.) Bring your cameras and your love of beer and street art.

Where you'll be
Two brewpub visits bookend our walking tour of the mural district. Which ones we go to will depend on (terrace) seating availability and the desires of the group. I have several in mind that are within walking distance of each other and will switch it up as needed. I'll also give recommendations to the group on where they can go on their own. I've lived in this neighbourhood for the last nine years so I know it quite well.
