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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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, 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.

Stopped by in the afternoon for a sampler of all tap beers. Service was very attentive and the prices very reasonable for the tap beers. Also available are a number of new imports which are extremely steeply priced. Worth a stop, but the beers are nothing overly interesting.

A bit more down ’n’ dirty than most of the local brewpub. Character and decent beer.

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.
