On 24 June, we celebrate St. John the Baptist Day. In Quebec it is called St. Jean-Baptiste Day. St. John the Baptist had nothing to do with beer, but his feast day is the provincial holiday of Quebec and that's all the excuse we need to get in some Québécois beer.
The Québécois make great beer and have some great unique food. This year, 2009, we will celebrating our second annual St Jean-Baptist Day with poutine (french fries and cheese curds under brown gravy) and several varieties of bottled beer from Quebec's Unibroue Brewery.
