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.

A little Beer oasis on otherwise over-trendy and over-priced Crescent street. Ambiance gets bonus points for the shuffleboard table usptairs and the dartboard out back near the kettle, as well as live music most evenings. Beer ranges from their so-so Scotch Ale, acceptable ESB, decent Stout and good IPA. No showstoppers here, but plenty to keep you occupied for a session of quiet tasting in the afternoon, or binge drinking with the Concordia U crowd in the evenings. Service is great at the bar, lackluster at the tables. The food I had here was above average pub fare. Not my favorite place in town, but on the "english part of town", certainly one of the best.

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...

Depending on what you’re looking for, the Bru is Jeckyll and Hyde. In the afternoons it is a nice place to sip a pint and enjoy a meal. Lots of exposed brick. Small terrasse out back is functional if not aesthetic. Couple of tables out front if you want to people watch on this trendy street. Evenings, especially on the weekend, there is a fairly young crowd and usually loud, live music. It’s boisterous, noisy, smokey and often fun, though you won’t be savouring the aroma of your beer. Staff are enthusiastic and friendly if not always knowledgeable. Rotation of beers leans towards British style ales and is fairly regular. The beers are palatable if not spectacular. Food is enjoyable and there are vegetarian (though not vegan) friendly meals.

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.

Nice atmosphere, although we sat most of the time of the little tiny patio on the front watching over this beautiful street. Nice beer, nice staff. Fun and good memories!
