I’m just here echoing what others have said. The decor and mood of the design and lightning are fantastic. Even if it’s a little cramped, the layout is very relaxed and modern, covered in nuetral dark woody earth tones. The beer is fantastic. Very well made beers, with some interesting recipes, and it was certainly refreshing to find a place that made lagers so well. Love the pilsener, Cerna Hora?, and the imperial stout was worthy as well. Had a wonderful time during the RBSG, the food and service were tremendous.

One of Montreal’s good places, but I blame them for not experimenting much. The selection is stagnant, I can’t remember when they had a new recipe although they were planning on one recently. It remains mostly quality beers, well-crafted products and a top notch atmosphere, shadowy with 3 floors, less smoky and noisy than most similar establishments.brbr I nowadays believe that they easily brew some of the best lagers in North America and for that reason alone, I can forgive a lot. They care more about quality than quantity, yet they still offer some beers that pack a punch. The food is gorgeous, the service excellent, but I can’t say their local is my favourite, it feels a bit less intimate than many.

I have mixed feelings about this place. The layout is a little awkward to my sensibilities and I have trouble finding a place to sit that I would deem comfortable. The beers are generally decent, but not always interesting. A good stop, but after three or four visits I don’t feel the urge to return.

A unique brewpub in North America, concentrated on lagers of Czech and German heritage. The restaurant provides the best food of any Montreal brewpub (rabbit burgers, crème brûlée à la stout, welsh rarebit, etc.) The Czech lagers are as authentic as they can get, and most Czech pivovars would be proud to call them their own. A gem for real lager lovers, and very good ales as well. A must visit when in Montreal.

A great happy hour $3 a pint and lots of people here in the middle of the afternoon. A good size, with private tables and NOT SMOKEY. COnvenient to downtown. Clean, only the one lady serving, but people around and approachable. Ten taps plus 2 pumps, no guest taps. Good, high quality brews, and a very detailed beer menu. A must stop. DOn’t expect to use much English tp meet people, but I suppose its possible. Five ounce samples were $2 and you have to tip well in Montreal or get dirty looks. I tip..

Oddly laid out bar that stretches over two split levels, both indoor and out. High atrium inside near the window. Short stubby bar on the lower lever... really strange looking place that seems to be designed to make the servers job difficult. Now, onto the good. The lagers here really are that good. Crisp, clean and delicious, they were like taking a step into the Czech Republic without leaving Montreal. Had a reasonably tasty sandwich, but nothing earth-shattering. Definitely a must-do on any Montreal pub crawl.

Brewpub with a more extensive kitchen than others in Montreal, and with very classy Czech/Euro beers. That being said, i enjoy the ambiance of the place, its great location in the Quartier Latin. On the other side, its the quite set beer menu. They rarely come up with something new. My fave is the Cerna Hora.

Set a little back from the sidewalk, I actually passed by once on my walking trips of Montreal without noticing the place. But once You get inside, You have a cozy dimly lit two story brewpub. The lineup when we visisted at RBSG was 8 beers, which is good for a brewpub. The staff was very friendly, all questions answered and requests answered - I’d definately come back if I was close to Montreal. And the food was good.

A solid brewpub in Montreal. A larger place than it seems with a terrace out back and plenty of indoor seats, although it was fairly empty on a Sunday evening. They offer around 10 house beers which seemed to be regular offerings. Most were your typical styles - blonde, hefe, pale ale, stout, porter, vienna, etc. Nothing too unique, just solid (if not boring) examples of the style. I didn’t try any of the food. Overall, seemed a chill place, it offers solid basic beer styles that should keep you happy (but not a place that makes beers that "wow" you).

My wife an I made a point to come here after a day of walking around in the summer heat, because we heard they had great lagers and session ales - we were not disappointed - about 10 beers on tap, most of them in the above-mentioned category - the ones we had were quite good - the place itself was set up nicely - lots of smooth, light wooden tables and chairs - clean interior - small patio out on a busy street in the oh-so-hip latin quarter - the service was so-so, as was the food, but it was a good enough place to grab a great beer after a long, thirst-inducing walk.
