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.

Very small and crowded on a Friday night. The atmosphere is a little sterile to me. The smapler set was cool. Very nice session style beer. A very good brewpub overall. Worth a stop especially if you like session style beers.

I love the place. The decor and fact that everything is kept as it has almost always been (with photos to prove it) is a real big hit with me. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable regarding their products. The crowd is young and cool. Like all other brewpubs in Montreal, the place is too smoky. Also, it all comes down to selection with me. With the exception of Dieu Du Ciel, the local beer scene is weak. I would have to say this is a distant second in the race for best brewpub in Montreal. Very nice. Certainly worth a visit.

Cool little brewpub that my wife and I escaped to after a bad L’amere A Boire experience. Sat near the front, allowed us to look down the long narrow bar area and take in the cool funky retro vibe. The pints exceeded my expectations and it wasn’t too smoky, even later on a Friday night. What a pleasant surprise, I can’t wait to go back. Didn’t try any food, service was good.

J’ai bien aimé ce brewpub qui à commencé la renaissence de la bière au Québec. Une variété de bière intéressante pour les amateurs. Il me reste à y allé quand il y a de la musique "live".

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.

Établissement visité le 23 novembre 2005 vers 18h. Ambiance: Il s’agit de la première brasserie artisanale de Montréal. Elle est situé dans une ancienne taverne de quartier et je crois que le décor n’a pas changé. Lors de ma visite la musique était de style jazz et était juste au bon volume. Par contre si vous détestez la cigarette évitez cet endroit.J’adore cette endroit pour son ambiance relaxe et ses murs de briques. Service: Le service est excellent et les serveurs connaissent bien leurs produits. Seul déception lors de ma visite, il n’y avait que seulement 6 bières de disponible. Sélection: Normalement 8 bières au menu donc certaines saisonnières. Aussi disponible des bières vieillies en bouteilles. Nourriture: Pas vraiment de menu on y trouve nachos et panini. (10e rating d’établissement)

Very interesting place. seems to have a retro atmosphere accented by what appear chinese themed lantern light things. pretty neat. the beer is good quality. the service was the best of the montreal brewpubs in my opinion. our server engaged us in conversations in english on several occasions, all while the place was packed. I would definitely return.

I love it here, and it’s my wife’s favorite brewpub in town. The place is very dark, both in decor and lighting, very 80’s "post modern". it does get buisy at night, but the walls absorb sound so well it’s the noise is never overpowering. Very clean also. It feels like you’re average french canadian corner pub, a great place to come after work for a no noncence pint or 2. The staf is mostly french, but even though most bartenders dont speak much english, they work SO hard at comunicating it realy makes the non-bilungual feel welcom. Beers on tap change fairly quickly, so fast that somtimes you see a complete menu change in a couple of weeks. They also make some {660 ml}bottled beers, mostly specialty, at a higher price, and I normaly only see one on sale at a time {maple ale for the last couple of months} . Beers generaly amasing, but simtimes they are a real miss. Mostly lagers, but they always seem to have sum of form pale ale on tap, as well as a stout, but it seems when ever I take someone there to try the wonderfull world of {non pale} lager, there are mostly ales on tap. Super points for comfort and more for the fact there are almost ALWAYS 2 or 3 new beers to taste every couple of weeks. Also, for the outa-towner, the grocery store, RIGHT across the street has a very nice selection of quebec brewed beer. Cheers.

Le (real) Cheval Blanc is an interesting twist on an asian themed futuristic 60s diner with craft beer on tap. I don’t know if it was the grass on the windows out front or the hand carved paper lanterns hanging around the place, but it seemed a bit pretentious for just a brewpub with bar food. The beers all taste similar with their (expensive) bottled selections being somewhat livelier but not much. The food was decent and affordable. Wouldn’t come here again if I had a choice.
