Visited in 2014 with Andrew, PJ, Brendan, Ricky and Streets. Nice little boutique store within a store. The ice cider selection is worth checking out. Dropped $250 here easily, and had to hold back from spending more. They had samples of ice cider and wine while we were there. Friendly staff (atleast in the ice cider selection). Plan to check out again in 2015.

A gourmet food market with a decent selection of Quebec craft beers and decent prices. Service was ok but for a better selection head next door to the Grange du Marche.

Nice little shop right across from the Marche Jean Talon market. Great selection of high quality meats and cheese and everything else you would expect from a nice delicatessen market. Decent local quebec beer selection and even better local wines and ciders. Service was a bit spotty but ended up being helpful in the end.

Comments: This is known as ice cider heaven and it is. Separated into two stores, one has the license to sell liquor, wine, and ice cider. The other has the cheese, meat, and beer. Ice cider section has nearly every Quebec ice cider, probably close to 40-50 including the only account for very rare ice ciders like Philion Gaia and Friga, Domaine Salamandres. In the beer section, they have the whole portfolio of probably a dozen Quebecois breweries including Trou du Diable and Dieu du Ciel. Found La Castor Yakima IPA here easily. Some people on staff were snotty, but others were very nice and helpful. Inside the ice cider section they have a couple of ice ciders you can try for free. Can easily spend $200+ at this store so get ready.

Right in front of marche Jean Talon. Limited selection of the main local craft breweries such as DDC, TDD and Castor. Nice selection of local food too and extensive selection of quality ciders with the possibility to sample-taste some.

pretty good bottle shop, but another bottle shop opened up not too long ago a few doors down, which has a lot more (local) variety. it’s mainly quebecoise beers. really good mead, hydromel and maple liquor selections.

Si l’on excepte le fait que la sélection de bières est assez limitée (après tout, ce n’est pas exactement leur spécialité), cette petite épicerie est très intéressante pour tous ses produits bio, leurs thés et les nombreux produits qui se marient bien à la bière.

I went here ice cider hunting and they had it all! Some very expensive stuff and cheaper stuff as well. Insider a cool artisanal type place, cheese and other food. A very nice cool place. Ice wines as well as some beer too.

Visited on a Saturday during the weekend of Mondial this year, it’s full of all sorts of preserves and meats and wines and beers you buy to-go. High ceilings and spacious in general, they packed a lot of products in here. We picked up some very tasty cheese and meat for our lunch to eat at the festival and it was well worth the effort. Beer selection is commendable with lots of local beers (B. de Montreal, DDC!, La Lievre, etc) and a few interesting ciders and iced ciders in the wine section at the front. Service was helpful and several asked us if we required assistance. Good store, worth checking out.

This place is ice cider heaven! Jammed onto a narrow street around the Marche Jean-Talon, this is a gem. The beer selection actually wasn’t all that impressive, but the cider selection more than makes up for it. Although I see people commenting on the price of the ice ciders, it’s worth noting that all the cider here is about 10% cheaper than those you find in the SAQ. I could have spent a lot more time and a lot more money in this place than I did... if you’re an ice cider fan, this is the place for you.
