Essentially a beer museum, BeBR may have the most convoluted brewpub name I’ve ever seen but is a very simple place. Beer, breweriana, darts and conversation. The museum pieces were outstanding - some very rare stuff including old wooden Dow casks and commemorative bottles never releaesed to the public. The beers were pretty decent fare and the service friendly. I want to go back sometime when I have more time.

Excellent small town pub atmosphere with truly approachable and friendly staff, loving what they do. Well displayed breweriana in quantities and that’s only a fraction of the owner’s humongous collection. Well located. Solid beers all around and it can only get better.

Special planning to get out here, and especially get home, though Chambly is lovely farm country. At least two of you, one with a map. Stop in at the SAQ (government-run store a block away). Lots of lounge benches outside and lots of room inside with a small bar. Mostly college students off on vacation, alongside suburb couples. A different taste and type of beers, certainly better than average, with the Kolsch the most interesting to me and something that I would hand out if bottled. Bread and water given complementary in sampling glasses, which are of generous amount. Relaxing.

Very interesting brewpub on the south shore of Montreal (a 30-minute drive). Ambiance is absolutely perfect, very comfy, friendly, with 2 sofa areas, 15 or so tables, a nice bar, all in an open space ideal for conviviality. A separate tasting room with cushioned long chairs admirably looks onto the brewing room aquarium, where one can see the brewer at work in his artisanal brewery. A great touch!! Staff is very friendly and loves quality beer, so you’ll get the info you want on their beer that’s for sure. Beers are all very-well brewed. A great stopover if you are driving north from the US, or if you are driving through Quebec’s Eastern Townships. Fourquet Fourchette is a 5-minute walk from there too, so if you want a great beer meal, you can head there after a tasty session here.

I enjoy this place everytime I go there. Nice breweriana collection, very nice setting and location. Summertime patio after biking. Nicolas is an excellent brewer, with a good recipe book. Food is good if selection is very basic. The waitress mentionned they may try to have a winter menu. Watch out for that Scotch Ale.

Great place just outside Montreal (you need a car to get here, really), with lots of house beers on tap. Tried 7 taster size portions, which ranged mostly from good to great. Service was very good, though the place is quite pricy compared to other brewpubs in Montreal. Worth a hit if you can get there.

When in Chambly I’d rather go here than Forquette Forchette. The place is quite light with strong light in the bar area and to light up the huge bottle collection along the walls. The staff was very friendly - but it took a long time to get Your order - but that definately was due to 14 RB’ers hitting the place at the same time and around half of us ordering tasters, which included 8 beers.

Visited during a special "grand cru" event where they served keg aged beers all afternoon. The place was quite full but the ambiance remained enjoyable, the music wasn’t too loud and the general noise level was low enough to be able to keep conversation. They have an enormous bottle collection which is quite impressive. The service was a little slow even for a special event but the staff was very friendly and helpful. The selection was great, 17 taps were pouring a lot of their better beers. Food is mainly snacks and a few sandwiches, I had one which was good. Value is also very good, the beers I had were expensive, but it was to be expected from what was being served (their beers are awesome). I will definitely revisit this place.

Stopped in here for a couple of pints and some snacks after the Mondial of ice cider down in Rougemont as we really needed something that wasn’t apple based and sugary. It was a slow Saturday night and there were a few patrons but the place wasn’t packed. Really nice laid back feel. Only real complaint about the service is that after our first beers were finished it took a few minutes to flag down one of the three bartenders who were behind the bar and had all turned their backs on the whole place so they could chat with each other. Beers were well crafted and tasty, food was decent. Great atmosphere, well lit and a nice open feel to the place. Certainly a place that I would like to have in my neighborhood.

Ambiance: Superbe décoration, on y découvre plein de bouteilles et de vieux items reliés au monde brassicole. La musique était de style blues lors de mon passage. Il est bon de rappeller que le brewpub est non fumeur. Service: Excellent service. Les serveurs connaissent très bien leurs produits et en parle avec passion. On explique comment faire pour découvrir le plein potentiel des saveurs. Sélection: 5 bières permanentes avec des saisonières en rotation. Les bières sont recherchées et valent largement le détour. Nourriture: Court menu, on y trouve sandwich et hot-dog de type européen. (3e rating d’établissement)
