Nice looking place. Beer selection is not particularily amazing, but not bad. Seems to me they’re still having difficulty with a couple of the beers, not finishing very clear. Otherwise, worth a visit.

Cool if slightly cold joint a bit of a hike west from the real downtown beer action around st Denis. Fun local young vibe, glass and steel looking place. Beers are decent but some were kind of sweet and simple for me. No real flaws. Don’t think I ever ate here in my visits. Feel like I should go a few more times to get the whole story. But there IS even better beer very near by, and this is not a cozy or amenable bar you can sidle up to and comfortably nurse a pint solo, chatting up strangers -- it feels more like a corporate coffee room made into a beer lounge (which would be way more fun with friends.)

Il est vrai, à l’ouverture, que j’étais un peu « froid » face à l’atmosphère (décoration, éclairage) qui me paraissait elle aussi très froide. Depuis, je dois dire que, avec toutes les très bonnes bières qu’ils ont brassé, mon opinion a changé et pour le mieux. Le service est dans l’ensemble toujours impeccable, les bières proposées souvent de haute tenue (la Cuda est l’une des meilleures IPA en service au Québec, à mon avis) et ils offrent de belles expérimentations (les versions cask dry-hopped sont toujours intéressantes!). Le menu cuisine n’est pas impressionnant mais les hot-dogs font quand même « la job ».

Le menu de leur site Internet est habituellement très à jour. C’est pour moi un très gros plus!

This place makes a stellar I.P.A - probably one of the best in Canada. I was really impressed with their beers, l think they are doing a great job.

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.
