Great place in a great beer-city. The staff and brewers were very nice and approachable, which improved our tasting experience. The food was pretty good, a good complement to the excellent beer. They had a great variety of beers, and we had a good time trying them out. The ambiance was very quiet because of our early timing.

There is an incredible choice of beers, a must-try in montreal for craft-beer amateurs. They try about any possible recipe, mostly succeed in doing a great beer, plus the prices are not too high, atmosphere is really nice, lot of students, people are nice and I’ll never say it enough the beer is incredibly good.

All their beers are home brews. I have never tasted anything bad. Beer menu varies and it is perfect. Nice pub micro brew ambiance, well qualified staff. Straight food menu as they concentrate on their beers, not food. European hotdogs, chips, snacks. THey serve simple but quality stuff.

As you enter, you’re greeted by a wall of kegs presumably stocked in plain site because the actual brewery is very small. The ambiance is nice, nothing too special but definitely not bad. The service I had was excellent, given I went on a busy night. Had a very nice chat with the waiter about beer. Ended up returning part of my flight because of a metallic taste in their Saison. Got a free pint.

Slightly of the beaten track but rewards the additional effort. Low key brewpub cafe in which the draw is the authenticity of the beers made on the premises. Thursday night sees them drain a cask of British-style bitter, served by gravity dispense, for example. Lovely details in some of the beers. I was not persuaded that the bar stools needed to be riveted to the floor but this is detail. In the top three for me in Montreal.

I’d say its the third most interesting brewpub in Montreal and surely in the top ten in Québec’s Imaginary Country. Very well located, the brewpub has a sort of post-modern hip general allure, without being in anyway a snobish m’as-tu-vu place (like just a few blocks away, on Rue Saint-Laurent). I am laughing when thinking about the difference of Hopfenstark’s weird-looking brewpub and this classy one. Above that, Benelux’s beers are definitely worth going there, as the brewer has great talent doing his job (and he was most friendly both time I spoke to him). My only complaint about the place is that they don’t have enough variety to propose; they had 6 or 7 beers the two times I went.

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!

Trendy industrial space with high ceilings and exposed ductwork. Very streamlined with a huge window to watch the world go by. Inverted pint glasses as light fixtures are a nice touch. Service is excellent - knowledgeable about the product and willing to chat when time permits though they are ocasionally overwhelmed at peak times. Growing selection of great house beers complemented by guest micros (as well as wine or liquor for those that prefer). Limited food menu is more appropriate for a snack than a meal but is tasty. A welcome addition to the Montreal beer scene.

Nice small bar below an apartment complex with nice modern design and cosy setting. Beers are very solid and can’t really judge the food menu as I didn’t eat there. Service is great with nice sample selection if requested. I thought music was a bit loud in the evening but I am getting old. Definitely a place not too be missed while visiting Montreal.

Brewpub visited on a Monday evening, between 6 and 7:30. The ambiance is great. Large windows to see outside, well located in downtown Montreal, great music, etc. etc. The service was good, waitress was polite and friendly. Good variety of beers on tap ranging from sessionable belgians to heavy IPAs and imperial stouts. The price was reasonable and the beer excellent.
