Pretty big place -- really lots of room. WAY TOO NOISY, whether it’s the crowd (which was surprisingly decent for Laval) or the music or the band that was playing. Service was awesome, though I must admit that we were served by the beer specialist. I could have had returned a beer I ordered (due to lack of carbonation) but decided not to do so after the said beer specialist acknowledged that the brew was really too flat to be served. 25-30 beers on tap, plus some bottles (and it was nice to see some beers from Le Mitan as well). The tasting format was good bang for the buck; however, the food seemed really pricey (to me, anyways), and what I tasted wasn’t all that great. Go there for the beer, but just make sure you eat before... and yhat you didn’t forgot your earplugs at home. Beer-wise, it’s rather similar to the Vices Versa (without casks, though), so I’d suggest AGAINst going there if the Vices Versa is closer, but otherwise, a pretty good place, in a somewhat unsuspecting setting.

Je dirais le meilleur (et seul) bar à Laval pour boire de la micro. Ambiance étrange dû à son emplacement dans le Centropolis, beaucoup de monde qui viennent y commencer la soirée avant d’aller dans les clubs. Les quelques fois où j’y suis allé, ça ce vidait vers les 23h. Endroit beaucoup trop bruyant pour mon goût, on devait crier pour s’entendre. Bon choix de bières en fût et en bouteilles avec des serveurs qui connaissent la bière. La nourriture est correcte. Je conseil de manger avant et d’acheter des nachos ou autres amuse-gueule pendant la soirée si la faim ce fait sentir. Je recommande si vous être proche, sinon il y a de meilleurs endroit sur la Rive-Nord ou à Montréal.

Visité lors du Rallye Bières et Plaisirs 2013. Superbe endroit, décor chic. Service rapide et impeccable. Menu de bières en fût assez long en plus de plusieurs bières en bouteilles. Nourriture excellente.

Cool place, the bar is huge. If I remember well there are 32 taps!! The beer selection in very wide and for all tastes. I ate the ’bavette de boeuf’ it’s a must!! Our waiter was Ian and he was so nice. The beer prices were quite ok, you have to remember that this is not a tavern in which you drink cheap beers.
Very cool place to discover!!

Visited for the first time December 15, 2011. This is their second restaurant, the other is in Joliette that I have not visited, so I can not compare them together. It’s a upscale looking place, like most of the other restaurants in this area, it has a very long bar, not that many tables but alot of seating. They have a very good selection of Quebec micros in bottles and on tap, but the taps are pricy. I haven’t had any food yet, but it is a small menu and also pricy. This is one the two best beer place in Laval, but it is not worth the trip if you have something equal or better near you, this place is great for locals or people going to the Colossus movie theatre nearby.
