The sale of this beer supports the conservation of the region's natural environments and the protection of the Cockspur hawthorn, which is found in Quebec mainly in the Châteauguay-Léry green corridor.
Ergot-de-coq is a light blond beer with a touch of aromatic hops, brewed with corn, malt and 100% Quebec hops.
For each beer sold, Champ libre donates $0.50 to Héritage Saint-Bernard for the conservation of the Cockspur hawthorn and its habitat.
Points of sale
The precariousness of Cockspur hawthorn greatly inspired the artist Hubert Rondeau-L’Écuyer, who is behind the illustration of this new brew. A nature lover, he combined the beauty of this plant species with the feathers of the white-tailed deer, the emblematic animal of Île Saint-Bernard.
Artist from the Châteauguay region, Hubert Rondeau-L’Écuyer graduated in visual arts from the Cégep du Vieux Montréal. Concerned about the environment and inspired by recycling, he uses objects that people dispose of to give them a second life by creating spectacular works under environmental and social themes.
