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.

Pretty classy place. Nice light wooden furniture and decor. They list all the beers above the bar so you can easily see what they’ve got. Small bar so you can’t really sit there, but plenty of seating in the upper level near the door, then a bit as you go down to the bar, and then more in the back in another elevated area.

The beers are largely traditional European styles and I thought the lagers were pretty nice. They had some stuff like an Imperial Stout and IPA, but those were not as good. One thing that might be annoying to visitors is that during the day, they do taster flights for much cheaper than at night and at night you have to buy full pours. So, if you’re looking to try a lot of their beers, then go during the afternoon as it’s much cheaper and you don’t have to order full glasses.

Anyway, this was a pretty solid place all around. Seemed to be pretty reliable in terms of being able to acquire a reasonably good beer. Reasonable pricing, good service, and a nice enough place to hang out.

Stopped by a couple of times now over the past week. A nice focus on lagers which is a welcomed change of pace. However, I had mixed experiences here, with slow service and average food. I also wonder if the beers were at their freshest, particularly the Cerna Hora which just felt tired and not bright at all the few times I tried it. Regardless, a nice spot to hang out along Rue Saint-Denis.

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.

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.

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.

Stopped by on a sunny afternoon to sample every beer from the menu. The pilsner is just fantastic and is apparently on tap 90% of the time - highly recommended. We had great service by a passionate beer geek. Prices are very reasonable. A must hit in Montreal, close to Le Cheval Blanc and Le Saint-Bock.

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.

Fairly small, modern, light wooded brewpub. Decent range, good quality.
