Visited on a Tuesday evening. Fairly large place with a narrow sidewalk patio. Weird atmosphere, dark local tavern meets Chinatown strip-club. About a dozen beers on tap and a decent selection of bottles, mostly limited-release beers from around the province and a few Belgian imports. Fast and friendly service. Though I wouldn’t spend my evening there, it’s a worthy way to start the night.
Cool place that we stopped at on a whim. The ambiance inside was kinda bad and looked more like a dark strip club type atmosphere with very few people inside. The beers however were unique, varied, and actually quite good. Cash only was a bit of an oddity as well but we got Cantillon and house beers and it was a good stop all around.
Remarkable experience. I mean, it looks unassuming from the outside with only white bold font on the building so you have arrived at the right place. It was evening and inside was packed with an after-work crowd rather than seedy clientele as this place would assume on entering. Interesting ambiance as it’s very dark inside with only a red glow of lighting to compensate. The beers are pretty good all things considered. The bartender was friendly and provided fast service. I’m not a big fan of the venue but would come back to try more of the house brews.
Long-running brewpub in central Montreal. Year-round beers are fine but pretty classic and fairly unexciting. Their seasonal brews though can be pretty amazing. Not the most efficient service but definitely worth a stop when on a pub crawl in the area.
This was one of the most unique places that we visited during our stay in Montreal.
I almost turned around and walked out, thinking that I was in the wrong place when we first walked in. But no, the dark, almost smokey bar with the black, metal, and red velvet and lights everywhere. Definitely has the feel of a local dive and not a brewpub. But, there they are, something like ten house beers on tap.
I only tried a couple of their beers as when we visited, it was later at night and they were in full bar mode rather than being a brewpub to sit and tick at. Also, cash only and I didn’t have a ton on me.
The beer quality itself was just okay, but the people we interacted with were charming and fun. Everyone seemed to be really enjoying themselves. A few catchy tunes came on, but were all in French so I had no idea what they were about.
I guess it’s probably not for everyone, but I liked this place’s ambiance a lot. I don’t know that I’d come back just based on the beer quality, but it’s a cool place.
Walked into this place on our last trip to Montreal. From the outside this place looks like a sleezy strip club at night at least. Once inside, the vibe doesn’t deviate that much - super dark bar with lots of metal and black. What the fuck is this place? Probably the worst ambiance of any place I’ve ever stepped foot into. Dive bar feel? No, more like rape dungeon. Unfortunately the few beers we sampled weren’t any good either. Service was on the slower side as well. Down-in-one, we’re out of here.
Nice retro look. The offering brewed there are solid not oustanding. There’s a small private import selection. Prices are fair staff is knowledgeable not too welcoming tough. Worth the trip pretty close to Saint-Bock and L’amere a boire too.
Right on Ontario Street near Berri-Uqam is this brewpub/taproom wit a small terrace in front and a surprisingly large interior which is red velvet, chrome, red lanterns, ceiling fans and has a cool elegant funky vibe. 2$ for 5oz from 3-8pm makes for reasonably priced tasters. 1 waitress makes for somewhat indifferent service as she had her hands full in the pretty busy bar.
Visité le mercredi 9 juillet 2014 en fin de soirée. La musique d’ambiance est agréable et n’est pas trop forte. Décor plutôt foncé où le gris et le rouge dominent, avec présence de plusieurs cadres sur le mur ouest. L’éclairage d’ambiance est faible, ce qui combiné avec le décor foncé, rend l’intérieur sombre et terne. Lorsque la température le permet, il est donc plus intéressant de profiter de la petite terrasse située à l’avant. La sélection est plutôt limitée et se compose essentiellement d’une sélection de leur bières en fût qui sont pour la plupart réussies sans être de grandes bières.
Nice brewpub near to the metro station Berri-UQAM. Very interesting place. dark ambiance with red lights around the bar which dominate the place. There are 8 beers on tap. Goods beers and nice service. The music is fine and the ambiance is ok. A little bit to dark to be very friendly. One of the good address of Montreal for beers.
