Trou Du Diable

“Le Trou du Diable is a working co-operative brewery in Shawinigan, Quebec that opened in December 2005. Le Trou du Diable (The Devil’s Hole) is a reference to a mighty whirlpool called “The Cauldron” located at the bottom of Shawinigan Falls. This name comes from the folk belief that this bottomless hole leads straight to hell – nobody that has entered it has lived to tell the story.
 
TDD has won numerous awards worldwide with their ability to mix old-school styles and new-school brews in exciting and very skilled ways. They take pride in their renown barrel aging program and for their award winning creative designs. Enjoy the world class beers of Le Trou du Diable.”
