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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

I visited this place on a Tuesday around noon with my brother. It was very quiet without much going on. They had about 8 beers on tap, and I forget if they had a cask or not. I did not try their food. The interior is very spacious, modern, and with an industrial feel that is a bit art-deco, too. The bathrooms were pretty clean and well-kempt. The service was prompt and friendly. Seemed like a cool place, and definitely a great option if you’re waiting to kill time till 3pm.

Came here with a few other RB folk as the third stop in an evening that had already included Dieu du Ciel and L’Amere Boire. Large cool space with a nice open feeling. We ended up in the back room (VIP perhaps? Awwww yeah). Service was great, friendly and fast, and we were treated quite well. Certainly need to come back here sometime when it’s maybe not the third stop after such a busy evening.

Visited in June 2006 with tiggmtl. Very modern, glass-and-metal, black-and-silver decor, unusual for a brewpub even in Montreal. It’s an old bank, and the coolest things about it are the original bank vault at the back -- now a private room that I would presume could be reserved -- and the airy metal circular staircase right next to the vault. Lots of polished aluminum, subdued lighting. Service was excellent and anglos need not be afraid. We had their current four house beers; the American Pale impressed, the others were all ok but not spectacular. I don’t believe food is being served yet, but this looks like a place to watch....UPDATE a year later I spent a couple of hours here with tiggmtl, and the beer has unquestionably improved; the IPA was just outstanding, one of the best I’ve had in a while, and the IIPA and nitro stout both solid. I didn’t have the food, but continue to be impressed with service and decor. I’d say this should be in your top 5 or so destinations in the city, certainly for your first visit.
