Les Brasseurs RJ is a microbrewery located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The company was born in 1998 from the merger of three microbreweries: Les Brasseurs GMT, La Brasserie Le Cheval Blanc and Les Brasseurs de l'Anse. Current annual production capacity is at 35 000 hL.[1] They currently employ 240 people, including employees at the head office in Montreal, a distribution centre in Quebec and a brewery in l'Anse St-Jean that fills beer kegs.[2]

In addition to a variety of beers of their own fabrication and recipe, the microbrewery brews two d'Achouffe beers under licence and distributes the Bitburger Premium Beer, Köstritzer Schwarzbier, König Pilsner, and Wernesgrüner for the Quebec market. A portion of their sales from the "Rescousse" brand used to collect funds for the preservation of endangered species via a donation to the Fondation de la faune du Québec.[3][4]

Due to the brewery's location (in the Plateau MontRoyal borough in Montreal) and their extensive sponsorship of local events, they are known as the "Official Brewer of the Avenue" (Mount-Royal Avenue)[2]
