About the Legend

The Seigneurial Regime of Medieval Europe flourished in New France until the mid 19th century. In 1667, Pierre Boucher Sieur de Grosbois established a Seigneurie in Boucherville on the South Shore of Montréal. The last three seigneurs resided in the sumptuous François Pierre Boucher manor of Boucherville built in the 1750’s and declared a historical monument in 1974. This ale is dedicated to these ancestral roots.
