A surprising find at this particular corner, but worth entering. Very close to where I live. Excellent choice of Québec beers, perhaps the best on the Island of Montreal. They finally got some Charlevoix in, I presume they will become regulars once the new brewery is running. I’ve never seen anything from Lion d’Or, I can’t think of other local players that they miss. I’ve never had the impression that the staff was particularly knowledgeable, but I have not asked many questions.
Now that Alain is the beer manager, this place has become the must-hit beer store in Montreal. They get everything so the selection is one of the best in the province, but it has the vicious effect that rarer offerings disappear quickly.

Warning: You speak French here. I can carry on very basic conversation "Avez-vous une..." but if you are here on the wrong day, its only French so be prepared. That having been said, this is an up-and-coming place, and is convenient Northeast of Papineau and Sherbrooke downtown. An impressive large horizontal cooler greats you, and between the main room and the back room, about 7 times 3 shelves of micros. Despite to an ordering by style, I found beers out of place. Certainly preferred those shelves where they were listed by brewer.Many growlers from a couple of brewpubs I did not know.

Absolutely huge selection of Québec micros. As said earlier it’s almost all Québec brews and not much else. Lots of bottles in cold as well. Reasonable prices. Excellent. Definitely worth a visit.

This is the place to bottle shop in Montreal, with easily the best selection of bottles. As with everywhere in Quebec, essentially nothing available outside of Quebec microbrews, and there are a LOT of them, so do your homework before making the trip. Lots of great ones and lots of garbage too. Only downside is it’s quite out of the way, though accessible via public transit.

Outside, you’d think you’re walking into an average, near-ghetto convenience store. However, it’s an entirely different story inside. Within thrive aisles of carefully aligned bottles, representing all microbreweries of the province. Basically the same selection as Joannette’s, so you can’t have better in the province. 2 thumbs up!

This place is amongst the best in Montréal. Great location (if you have a car or are biking...on the Rachel st. path), free parking, one of the best selection in Montreal, tastings, and a hot dog place next door (oh, those steamies!). Alain, the beer mongerer, is knowledgeable and will advise you , in either official languages. If he’s not there, well....All 12 on are available in singles, and they will even break a six pack if need be.

A large selection of Quebec microbrews that was getting larger when I was there. (they were in the middle of an expansion that is likely complete by now. A lot of them are lesser know brewers which is good from a rarity perspective, not always from a quality perspective so do some Ratebeer research in advance! Prices are quite reasonable. Bit out of they way but definitely the broadest selection I have seen for Montreal bottle shopping recently.

I don’t know why but tons if the best places are in the middle of nowhere like Vices et Versa and DDC - it kinda sucks. This is my first time dragging myself into the black hole that is this area. Damn this place lives up to the hype though with 2 or 3 times more variety than anywhere else in town. Basically a giant dep that is 75 to 85% beer. Prices are average to high but staff are knowledgeable and outgoing. The tops in town by a good margin but I feel the gap is slowly closing. They still win based on selection but in other ways differences are narrowing.

Crazy construction around this little gem of a place, but we finally found our way in! Unassuming cornerstore appearance, until you walk into. The deeper reaches of the store where it opens up to become an orgy of Quebec craft beer. Actually orgy implies disorganized excess, and that isn’t true. The beer selection is truly awesome,and the organization equally so. Mind you, every beer here is brewed in Quebec, so if you’re after hard-to-find imports you’ll be out of luck. But who wants imports when given such a wonderful treasure trove? Excellent service too.

Obviously, the place to go for bottled craft beer in Montreal. I really enjoyed that beers were organized by style (warm) and brewery (cold). I’m really blown away that imports are almost not available and that 95% of the craft beer in this store was from Quebec. Please to grab some Hopfenstark Saison, but sad to see the La Trou du Diable was $20 (!). Best selection I saw while wandering around the city.
