I am a bit biased, since I live down the street, but this is one of my favourite beer stores - a very neighbourhood-type place. The owners Annie and Sylfranc are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and they have a good selection of all the best Quebec beers. It’s very easy to walk out with a good selection of a bit of everything, as they offer discounts on 6, 12 and 24 bottles (mixed selection is fine), with an extra discount on 6+ bottles during the week when the Canadiens are playing ;-)
Also, there are usually free beer and cheese samples on Saturday afternoons .

This place is small but still manages a very decent selection of Quebec micros. They have loads of Dunham, Charlevoix, LTM, DDC, Simple Malt, A la fut, Brasseurs du Temp as well as many others. When I asked, they even pulled a Trou du Diable Imperatrice from the back. Very friendly. Has some cheese and other picnic supplies as well. Cool little place.

This is definately a "boutique" Beer store in a very strange location on tacky St-Hubert, where you can get a cheap second-hand wedding dress, latex boots with matching whip and knockoff fashions. But it’s only a block away from Baubien metro, not much of a detour if you’re going to Vices & Versa.
It’s a small store, so selection is limited, but you only find the cream of the crop here, and is likely to have the limited release Beers hidden in the backstore, so don’t hesitate to ask. They seem to have a strict no hoarding policy on these, good for them. Service was friendly and the guy knew his stuff. Cheeses and other interesting pairings were available. This may become my favorite local store.

Une petite place pour la bière, mais la sélection contient parfois de petits bijoux qu’on ne retrouve pas / plus ailleurs ; personnel compétent, choix intéressants de produits se mariant bien avec les différentes bières offertes (fromages, charcuteries, etc.). Relativement facile d’accès.

Nice little shop in a bustling strip of stores and people. Little rustic shop with various local packaged Quebec goodies for munching and a decent and well laid out beer selection. The person working the counter was helpful and knowledgable. He steered me to a couple nice bottles I would have overlooked and the prices were pretty on par with other spots I’ve visited in the area.

Tout près de chez moi. La sélection est adapté à la superficie étroite du local, alors on coupe dans le gras et on garde le meilleur. Le service est sans bavure et adapté aux besoins. Je m’efforce d’y acheter la plupart de mes bières.

A bright little shop with a great selection of beers and glassware. most of the beer was in fridges and well organized. Lots of craft food products as well. good service, and a nice, clean store. Worth a visit!

The closest good bottle shop from where I live, this has been my go-to for the last year. It is tiny and does not carry as many brands as many competitors, but focuses on the essential and rarely miss on the good stuff and concurrently, tends to still have the rarities in stock a day or two after Peluso has sold out. Nice complementary offerings including a small and elitist selection of cheeses and various Terroir treats. Just a charming little store and with unabusive pricing policies and helpful, dedicated staff.

One of my favorite place in Montreal to go buy local beer. The shop is small but they have a pretty diverse choice among their offerings; they get most of the rarities that are released in Quebec and stopped offering most of the dubious brewers’ products (no more Breughel for exemple... but plenty of Multi-Brasses though...). Customer service is pretty good and personalised when you’re being served the two owners, Annie and Sylfranc, which happens less and less since they began their involvement in Brouhaha, a brewpub located not so far from St-Hubert. They also sell glasses, artisanal cheeses and other beer related-stuff.
