Lets make it clear. This pub is one of the best beer pubs in Montreal. But there are better ones very close to it. The ambiance is good if you go there just to hang on with your friends. They have small couches which makes you feel comfortable in your discussion. My only tilt is that this ambiance seems too snobby to me. I prefer a good ol pub where you feel youre in Europe, not in the middle of North America. The food is good but I would have prefered also some snacks. Yes, its a decent pub, but Amere a boire situated some blocks away is better value.

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.

Not bad. Service was charming. Selection and ambiance was poor but believe because it was a november late afternoon.

Spent a very nice evening here with a good friend, and enjoyed the duration. An unassuming, unpretentious joint, darkly lit with fairly abundant seating. Hockey on the tube, not terribly offensive music, a good place to simply kick it. Service was really wonderful, and our server (who was rather easy on the eyes) really knew her beer. Nice smoked almonds, olives, and cheese to carry us through, we really, really enjoyed the vibes and the range of solid beers. A must if you’re in MTL.

Visited early afternoon in June, during Mondial, and it was raining maple keys. The place is surrounded by hotels. Inside was almost empty, and had a warehouse-type feel. The patio outside was packed. The people were relatively quiet, but Sherbrooke Street wasn’t. Multiple chalkboard beer menus were visible. The service was very friendly and professional, but the poor girl was busy, as she seemed to be the only one working at the time. The food choices were minimal (paninis and chips), but everyone at my table found the sandwiches to be decent. The beer choices, mostly their own, but also 3 Mousquetaires and did I see a Hopfenstark (?), were varied and very tasty. I’ll definitely be back.

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.

Visited this place while in Montreal. Located right across the street from the hotel. Ten or so taps. The atmosphere is the sleek, trendy modern feel. Annoying furniture - our table broke while we were there spilling our beers all over us and the floor. Much like the majority of bars in Montreal, we were reminded that it is customary to tip (do Americans normally not tip?)

Part of Beerquest 2008. Stumbled upon accidentally due to close proximately to our Hotel. Beer selection was decent, maybe 12 taps but some were kicked. Atmosphere is not my style.. hard steel, ultra modern, cheap tables/chairs (ours actually broke and we lost a few beers to the floor). Beer is not really tasty.. maybe 1 or 2 drinkable beers on the menu. I was embarrassed to keep asking for samples (3 or 4) because I couldn’t find a beer to session on. Eventually I settled.

I first went there on their 3rd anniversary. Beer selection was really awesome. They had about 12 beers on tap. Service was quite fast (even if the place was full. They have a nice spot outside with a lot of tables. Inside, the decoration is very nice but it’s not like the usual brewpub. It has more the spirit of a night club than a brewpub. Paninis are great but this is not the place where you go if you want to eat a nice meal. Overall it is a very nice place with a great selection of nice beers from different syles. I will definitely go there again. Place rating #5

Une autre très bonne adresse de Montréal. Les bières dégustées ur place étaient toutes de très bonne qualité, parmi les meilleures de type belge à Montréal.
