A death metal playing bar that has the interior of a sauna. The beers rock however, a must try. Fantastic saisons.

Lovely addition to the Montréal scene. The Hopfenstark beers are among the most idiosyncratic in the province and for them to open a tap room in eastern downtown is awesome. I used to live a 5-minute walk away. Shame. Anyway, I enjoy the minimalist decor Inside and am very fond of old wood and it’s all over the place here. Simplistic, with nothing on the walls, a few scotches behind the bar and 20 or so taps comprising mostly Hopfenstark creations. It’s hard to go wrong from there. The couple of times I went, I always got carried into conversations with friendly souls or Fred who were already there and ended up having a lot of fun, sometimes when I should have been working. It makes it a dangerous place that I really should not go to all that often if I’m to remain a productive young man. In any case, whenever I’ll feel like not being all that productive, Station Host will be as good as choice as any. I can see Fred being tricked, eventually, by tough décisions like should he add more tables as the place inevitably grows more popular. No food as of Fall 2013.

Well located on Ontario street. Not particularly huge place, but it’s nicely decorated and fun. I went there on a Saturday night and it was not too crowded. Ambiance was good. Music is not too loud. Service wasn’t particularly friendly, but they seems to know their beers. Good selection, mostly their beers with a couple of guest taps including DDC and TDD. Value is on par with other good bar/brewpub in the area. A place worth visiting at least once.

Tout une amélioration en comparaison au "salon" de dégustation de l’Assomption.
Ce n’est pas fini, il reste des travaux à faire. Il manque de table et celles-ci sont (trop) collantes. Plusieurs fûts de leur cru. Un ou deux invités. Le service est en rodage. La musique....ouf. C’est un peu trop fort et un peu trop thrash, mais bon, c’est sa place. J’aime quand même ce pub.

Un nouveau pub sur la rue Ontario. Bien propre, service impeccable et 20 pompes de superbes bières. Un endroit qui deviendra un incontournable en peu de temps.

Visited on a Saturday night. A stones throw (or drunken crawl) away from the other 3 big beer bars in the area (le Cheval Blanc being the closest.) Rustic atmosphere but very clean and spiffy. Long bar and lots of seating, cool looking place. Large selection of Hopfenstark beers on tap with a few others from DDC and the likes. Definitely worth a visit on the Montreal brewpub tour.

Endroit très rustique, avec une large (20) sélection de bières bien réparties, mais ce nouveau pub a encore du rodage à faire avant d’atteindre son plein potentiel : service un peu lent, trop peu de places assises, le tout manque un peu d’ambiance, et les bières maison en fût semble manquer de caractère en comparaison aux versions bouteille. Ceci dit, l’endroit vaut le déplacement, et on sent que plusieurs améliorations seront sans doute apportées bientôt, ce qui en fera potentiellement un incontournable de la métropole.

Visited on August 5, 2013, in the evening (two days after its opening). Located less than a mile east of Cheval Blanc, this bar will replace the tap room at the brewery in L’Assomption, that will close in a few weeks. Reason? According to owner/brewer, people in that town are not in to beer at all, plus Fred (the owner) is from Montreal. The place looks like the brewery tap room, but less rudimentary, the scene is a combination of urban bar and wild west tavern. 20 beers on tap with three invited and some surprise taps in the futur, a small but nice whisky list, no food for now. The sevice was great, but fast well you won’t be seeing much of that because there will be a lot of attention on helping any customers who want to know more about beer, that is what is required to work here, little knowledge of beer, you have no chance to work at Ho*st. Fred’s goal (or utopia) is to create a beer nirvana where everything you drink is great (and I’m not just talking about his beers), he knows that not everyone will like his approach but he does not care, he he believes there is still much work to do to make Quebec one of the best place in the world for beer. Will it work, I don’t know but there’s a chance because where he is, it’s more likely there will be more open minded customers in this area.

A great addition to the beer scene in MTL. Was in the day after opening. Hard to judge what it would be like atmosphere-wise when crowded as it was pretty quiet. Service was very attentive. 20 draft lines with 2 of those going to collab/guests. Great range of beers on offer and prices were what you’d expect to pay at a place like this. Sounds like they have big plans for the future as well. Bravo!

La place était animée pour l’ouverture avec un service un peu dépassé par la demande. Le choix des bières est axé sur la sélection Hopfenstark et celle-là n’a pas déçue. Entre 15 et 20 pompes, une place à surveiller.
