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.

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.

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.
