Looks like a 50’s diner with the metal and bright red checkered design... they grow grass on their window sill here, that seemed kind of odd. It was fun to sit at the window and BS for a few hours, and the beer wasn’t too bad either. Good blanche, decent porter, bottles saisons, and they had a freakin CHILI BEER!! The waitress was hot too, and the bathroom was as small as an airplane’s.

Nice smallish tavern atmosphere. Medium beers, most of the time without defaults, but very ecclectic experiments at times. Above average take on more known styles. Probably 3rd best in the city after dieu du ciel and l’amère à boire. Usually a more than decent range of beers (~8) on tap.

I like the offbeat atmosphere of the place. The beers these days are quite good - I’ve especially enjoyed their seasonals, like the Marzen. My second favourite brewpub in Montreal.

This, the first brewpub of Montreal, is still going on strong with a new brewer with inventive and mostly quality brews. This one gets real smoky due to its narrow disposition, so I suggest visiting before the evening rush for a serious tasting. Their Lager Extra-Rouge, brewed with beets, is particularly mind-opening.

A better than average quality beer place East of downtown and north of Old Montreal. A must stop for the beer geek. Safe. Just about every table taken, but the bar fairly wide open, so where do you think I sat. Crowd of Twenties to Fourties Quebecoix, with the long hair thing. Bartender was knowledgeable and competent and in charge. Very reasonabley priced. Fairly dark at night. Like other Quebec establishments, something to read for my non-drinking friends, in English please.

This is the brewpub which made me discover brewpubs, and micro beer back in 1989. Loved their Rousse, which was strickingly hoppy and caramelly back then....tasting it know, its run of the mill...but such souvenirs, coming here to the green formica bar and walls, the round tables, the smokeyness, the little merguez sandwiches...and the new brewer is very talented.

The staff was very friendly - even though my french is quite limited. The selection of beer is good for a brewpub, 8 from tap and 3 bottles, and the prices arevery resonable (read low), but they don’t take creditcards which draws down. The food is pubgrub, that I don’t find it worth spending money on - after I had wet nachos. The clientel is dominated by regulars. The decoration includes some weird green plastic walls?!?

A great brewpub in Montreal. Fairly dark and conspicuous inside. There were around 10 beers on tap, 5-6 regulars and 3-4 special beers that are only served in 16 oz. The "specials", which included an IPA and hoppy red ale, were quite good, and the regular stout was pretty decent. It seemed like all the beers were around $6/serving (20 or 16 oz depending on the beer). Service was a bit sparse, but it seemed there was one bartender serving the bars, tables, and outdoor patio on a Sunday evening, so I don’t know if that’s typical. Overall, I enjoyed my time here and definitely a solid brewpub to check out, there definitely are some winners among the bunch.

Visited this place on a Wednesday afternoon, shortly after it had opened. My brother and I were the first ones there, but a few others came in not long afterwards. Music is sort of a jazzy french pop motif. The interior of the bar seemed like it used to be a diner with pretty ugly lime green colorings on the walls with a big stainless steel bar top and some permanent stools for thirsty patrons. Toward the rear of the pub, there is a little elevtated area with maroon felt drapings on the wall, presumably for live entertainment. There is also a seating at an old mashtun that is covered as well. I did not explore the bathroom facilities, but my brother mentioned that there was no place to take a dump in the men’s room and that he was forced to lay his log in the women’s room. They had about 6 or 7 beers on tap. Bartender seemed friendly. I did not have any food.

4th brewpub I visited on a 4 day trip to Monteral, and the worst of the 4. Decor would be nice if there was enough light to see any of it - I have big problems with a beer place that wants the lights so low you can’t see what you’re drinking. Never a good sign, and from the quality of the beers, maybe that’s why. Fought through a throng of smokers to get into a dark, and ridiculously loud bar. The volume went up a little over time, and the lights got lower twice. Crowded, but not packed, and still took 10 minutes to get a bartender (and we were seated at the bar). The next service took another 15 minutes of sitting with empty glasses. To make it worse, what seemed like the owner, or someone of some importance, was standing behind the bar drinking the entire time we were there and chatting with friends. The beers ranged from undrinkable, to decent, but nothing good enough to make me want to go through the hassle and ordeal of trying to get a drink here again. Won’t be back.
