A constantly improving bar with a light, but well chosen selection of their own products, often accompanied with 2-3 well chosen Quebec micros. A bit too industrial formy taste in terms of atmosphere and rather trendy and loud on the music, but it fits the neighborhood. The staff is welcoming and friendly at all times.

Visited on Sunday afternoon - 04/03/12. Moderately busy at 4pm and one server coped well. All beers from Benelux and the 2 I drank were decent enough. Single roomed bar in an old bank. Loved the fact the gents toliet was in the old safe room ! Would hit here again.

A newer brewpub, 17 months old. I was here till 1 a.m., which is when they will think about closing on a Monday night. Very open and airy with huge floor to ceiling windows, so you can see downtown in the comfort of a bar. I would like to come here at the end of a workday, though their usual crowd is the universioty across the street. Industrial decor and unusual tasting beers. The brewmaster homebrewed 5 years before opening, something akin to others across the province opening these days. The double IPA was good. Perfect carbonation. Geoffry the bartender was happy to talk to some people on a sparse late night. A place with potential.

This lounge bar is filled with gleaming stainless steel and trendy, Plateau-ish chic decoration. A little too sterile for my liking, but I guess they are aiming for the hip happy hour crowds of downtown Montreal and UofMcGill. They have quite a few beers of their own on tap, served in heavy pint glasses or absolutely gorgeous, massive chalices. They also alternate quality locals on tap (St.Ambroise, Bierbrier, Hopfenstark, 3Mousquetaires, etc.). Belgian, English, and German styles all coexist peacefully, and all manage to come out very cleanly. I personally have a preference for his Belgian stylings. The European hot dogs and paninis are good pub grub, but don’t expect anything special this food is meant to accompany your pints of goodness. The quality and variety of the beers here are slowly bringing it in Montreal’s Top 3 brewpub destinations.

Stopped in here as soon as I arrived in Montreal. Sort of a modern, high ceilinged space with a fairly asymmetric layout. Had a pretty tasty panini as well as some nice cured olives. Service was quite attentive, both when it was empty, and later in the evening when it was busy. The beers were all very fresh and tasty. The pilsner especially was a high note for me. No complaints about this place.

Semi-indstrial looking bar for the lounge lizards, with lounge ambient music, a bit on the cold side. Liked the vault room. Not a lot of people when I was there, a Saturday night around 10h30. Knowledgable staff. Limited menu of sausage sanwiche (5$ with chips), but good. Good quality beers, alongside with taps of Bierbrier, St-Ambroise, and Leffe Brune. June 17, 2006.

A very good brewpub in downtown Montreal. It can get very crowded, even though the indoor space is pretty large (there are tables of varying sizes and a long wrap-around couch). Service is good (slow compared to the US, but actually compared to other Montreal brewpubs it’s quite good). There were about 12 taps on, all house beers. Two-thirds were your typical offerings (blanche, red ale, brown ale, IPA, stout, etc) and the rest some more unique styles (Belgian IPA, hopped American wheat ale, saison). Overall the beers were good to excellent. I didn’t order food, it looked like mostly appetizers and hot dogs. Great beers, definitely worth a stop.

My wife and I had an excellent experience here - it’s proximity to downtown, museums, McGill, the Underground City, and various other attractions made it an easy stop for us tourists, and what I experienced leads me to believe that this is a must stop for anyone visiting the city - ample outdoor seating, and an interior that is somehow industrial and whimsical at the same time (for example, there are ventilation ducts that bend and twist in odd, funhouse fashion) - the girl that waited on us was probably the most friendly and attentive server we had in all of Montreal (and we went to some very nice restaurants) - the Paninis we had were quite good, and all the food was reasonably priced - large and relatively cheep servings on the beer as well - ah yes, the beer - most of it was great, and what wasn’t was still quite good - a nice range of styles, with about 9 beers in all - an all-around great brewpub experience - you must go!

2011-07-30. We sat on the patio on a lovely evening. Server was friendly and efficient. Food was limited but I enjoyed my hot dog/sausage. Others enjoyed their sandwiches. Enjoyed my first glass but the sampler of beers that followed was fairly disappointing, particularly since I know that they make some very good beers. Patio had less of the "clubby" feel that the inside can sometimes give off, to its benefit in my opinion. Would come back, it was chosen partly for its proximity to our hotel. For most beer geeks how much you like this place will probably depend on what is on tap when you visit.
