Somewhat cozy pubby atmosphere. Service was efficient enough. Six or seven beers on at any one time, but they’re not very good. Not worth going out of your way for (and it’s usually out of the way since it’s in the English part of town and all the other beer spots are in the French part).

Extremely cozy brewpub and gorgeous decor. Beer is rather bland, except for the IPA and the Nut Brown which stand out. Don't rush out to this place if you're in a hurry and looking for great beer, but do so if you want to relax in a warm atmosphere.

Stopped by this place while we were simply looking for a place for a quick one. Sort of a shitty, run down appearance inside. Lots of styles of beer on tap, but the three beers I had were uniformly poor. There is a lot of stuff up on their board that isn’t available... which always annoys the hell out of me. An oxidized IPA, an underattenuated Belgian ale and a watery scotch ale. Live music out front with a quieter back room. It’s not really a bad place to hang out, but I certainly wouldn’t go in looking for quality brew.

A small dimly lit pub with no snack serving on a Sunday night - which is a terrible set-back - since I got into town 2 hours ago from Denmark and need something to eat. But instead I get live music. The beer selection is fine, 8 house beers, besides 6 other micro-beers and only 2 macro’s. The knowledge of the beers vary a lot from tender to tender.

Had a great time here while in Montreal. This place is huge! It starts out looking like a basement at your friends house, then winds up three more levels high with different music going and bars on each floor. Solid selection of beers, but nothing amazing. Very much for the college crowd.

A larger than expected brewpub in downtown Montreal. The interior has a lot of nooks and crannies so there are plenty of seats. The main level has a grungy pub feel while the downstairs is a nice lounge with some TVs. There is a nice shaded terrace on the main level too. They had 7 regulars on (IPA, honey brown, extra blonde, honey beer, strawberry blonde ale, nut brown, and scotch ale). I enjoyed the IPA, although it is more of a hoppy pale ale. They also have 4 seasonal beers, 2 of which I sampled (a IIPA and a ginger cream ale) and were very good. Beware- the beers are quite pricy. Only happy hour prices were listed on the board- $5.50/pint for regulars and $6.50 for seasonals. And a pint of Guinness was $8.75! Bartenders and patrons spoke mostly English. Overall, I was surprised by the quality of the beers (in contrary to ratings by prior posters, I found the 3 beers I tried to be very good) and certainly it is worth stopping here for at least one round.

I stopped here with my brother one night to have a few beers after a hockey game. This place is very cozy and rustic atmosphere. Very warm and inviting to say the least. Unfortunately, it was almost too cozy that it was difficult to get up from your table because you were so close to other tables. The beer is here average at best. I was somewhat disturbed when I noticed another male patron at this place winking at me...

Certainly a large place, but even on a Sunday night when we were here, it had a fairly good crowd so the ample space was being put to use. We had already eaten before we got here so I can’t really comment on the food. I can comment on the beer. We ordered a total of four beers while there, and nothing was even really worth drinking. The best of the four is something I wouldn’t want to drink again even though it was a tolerable beer. There are definitely better places for beer in Montreal. Go to those places instead.

Finally, after a couple of years of pilgrimmages to Montreal, I make it to the last of the untried brewpubs within the city, and...well, it looks nice. Lots of cool little rooms, sort of a small warren of a place, a bit divy yet hip...didn’t try the food, this was strictly a beer experience, and unfortunately it was pretty poor. They didn’t have samplers available at the time, which might be just as well, the beer all tasted unfermented and undercarbonated, sort of like pieces not really coming together. IPA was tolerable, the Maple Rousse and Scotch Ale nearly undrinkable. If they get their act together and give the brewer time to brew, it could be pretty cool. Next time, I’ll go for the food. Extremely crowded, even on a Sunday.

Only sought out this place due to the people I was working with, plane’s was delayed a day and their hotel was up the street. Friday night crowd in a the dingy downstairs bar. Average to below average beer. Nothing stood out nor did anything want to make me come back (although nothing overly offensive).
