Small corner entrance in a part of town that has an old European style... but that’s pretty much all of Montreal. But the impression I got from stepping outside while drinking my stout in the rain was just calm and relaxed. Wood everywhere on the interior, with the brewing setup located next to the bar. A bit cramped, but not a problem really. The bar was small but looked very cool. Service was great considering how many folks were present for the RBSG, and the beer quality goes without saying. Definitly a place I would like to live near.

I suppose this is the Mecca of Montreal beer places. A worthy entry for place rating #1000.

Admittedly, I was anticipating a larger location, but it works. Overall very inviting and comfortable feel, even with the crowd. We found a couple empty spots at the bar fairly quickly, which was nice/lucky.

The staff were very friendly and quick on getting beers out. They do taster pours of all the beers as well as full glasses. I opted to try as many of the new beers as possible, of course. Taster prices are pretty reasonable. Full pour size depends on the type/strength of the beer.

There were about 16 things on tap during our visit, and a lot of them were new to me. Most of the beers were pretty great, which is something I could not necessarily say about other breweries in town. Admittedly a few I didn’t care for that much.

They do some food as well, but it’s a bit of a limited menu. That said, we opted for some nachos, which were pretty good. Some sandwiches and such.

Not much more to be said here given the acclaim they already receive. Come here.

Visited on March 3rd 2012, a Saturday night around 8.30pm. Waited at the bar for a few minutes and tried to catch the bar tenders attention. He finished serving and that had a chat with a colleague. A group of young lads turned up a few minutes after my friends and I. I tried to catch his attention again and instead of asking who was first, he started serving them. Being no shrinking violet I challenged this and told him we had been waiting 2 or 3 minutes longer. He looked a bit pissed off but served us (and rightfully so) instead. No please/thankyou etc. When I paid I didn’t tip. He told me ’in our country it is tradtional to tip the bar staff’’ . No shit? I told him that in bars I’d visited in his country and others it’s traditional to be aware and serve the people who have been waiting longest first! The lads in question weren’t even locals/regulars - for which I could have forgiven him. Not having got off to the best start and rant aside ... we found a table after a few minutes and the waitress service was fine. Beer selection OK - DDC beers only as I had expected. Tried 3 beers, all OK - nothing to brilliant to be honest, just typical brew pub offerings if all be told (have had far better bottled offerings from DDC btw) , surprised at how highly this place gets rated !

Oh yeah! Widely ranging beer list includes jaw-dropping specialties and tasty standards. Low-key attitude and dark corners. As Montreal goes, it's never struck me as being smoky. Anglo-friendly staff a big bonus.

Simply the best place to sip good beer in Montreal. They don't distribute as of now so don't miss it if you pass by. Most of the time I've been there, the place was full, so arrive early (they open at 3pm), especially that the smoke becomes a little annoying as the evening advances, can be rather noisy too. Usually always a cask at work and ~10 taps. They've got a lot of recipes going around too, so you'll more than likely always have a new beer available every time you come assuming you're not from the neighborhood.

Comments: Stays open super late with amazing hours. Extremely well trained staff got all orders correct with all of the noise and me not speaking French. Beers are served in correct glassware and pours are generous, prices are low. Tap selection is about half and half house beers that are bottled and exported to the US and half stuff that is either not bottled and or not exported. So a good number of beers will be new to even a seasoned DDC veteran. Did not try the food.

One of the great brewpubs. We were lucky to get seats at the beer mid-Tuesday evening. Very happy smokeless and as full as it was, that we could actually talk to each other and to the bartendress. Great 6-ounce samples of excellent beer, good food, cliquey and private but congenial. Unless you are a regular, you probably do not want to come here by yourself, whereas that is much more common in other bars. Ten of 15 taps were active, not the cask. The guest beer was reasonably priced. Service is very good. DDC bottles a couple blocks away at Rahman, and parking is best a couple blocks out. A must-visit.

Nice patio (will unfortunately close 11pm). Great selection (15+) of DDC brews. Very crowded Wednesday night. No chance to get a chair. $6.00/pint. Not bad price. Nice neighbourhood.

Best brewpub in Montreal (maybe in northeastern North America?), huge selection of styles and always of great quality. The star of this brewcity. See the place description for more of my thoughts. World classic.

Popped in here for a nice session with two friends when I was in town recently. We got their just at opening to a mostly empty room... within two hours the place was jammed, so clearly they’re doing something right. I can’t say too much that hasn’t been said before. Large open room with some vaguely gothic decorations hanging fromt he ceilings and walls. Lots of windows, but still maintains low light. Gets really loud when it’s full, but that’s to be expected. Great service considering just how busy the place was. Lots of styles and very few duds. Definitely a place I’ll be visiting again when I’m back in Montreal.
