Stopped in to pick up "picnic" supplies for Mondial. Got some fantastic cheese, and cold cuts, some bread from a few doors down. Beer selection is decent, with a range of Quebec brews but some notables are missing. (We picked up some 3 Mousquetairs, DDCiel and misc. others). Service was a bit ambivalent but we didn’t really engage them or ask questions either. Pretty good selection of ice ciders as well, I suspect it was better in the past, but there was still plenty to choose from. Definitely a recommended stop. I will return.

Located a stone’s throw from the Marche Jean-Talon (which is an amazing market that makes me wish my hotel had a kitchen I could use), this place has the most impressive ice-cider selection around. They’re pricey, but you won’t find them in a lot of other places, and probably not in such selection. The beer selection is on the small side, but has a ton of local bottles, including (as the good local places seem to) a nice DdC representation. Prices on beers are pretty good. Helpful staff.

This little market of gourmet food items is located on the periphery of a charming farmer’s market. That much is nice. But I am growing tired of beer retailers in Montreal that carry a plethora of single-bottle micros but without any of the big guns other than Dieu du Ciel. I don’t consider myself a Quebec brews veteran, but to me, not carrying any Bieropholie, Hopfenstark, or Charlevoix is a cryin’ shame. Perhaps I underrate this place. After all, it is a matter of carrying a few key bottles for me. Come here if you are new to Quebec/Montreal and want a good atmosphere to sample a little of what’s out there.

Located near a nice farmers market, and some interesting shops - quite a spacious store - clean and well-lit - a large cooler of beer amidst the huge selection of food and liquor - they had a lot of obscure Quebec brews that only have a couple of ratings, but some of the big names were missing (Charlevoux, Bieropholie) - nothing to complain about, though, as the beers you will find will be plenty rare and obscure (though not necessarily good) - I’d say it’s worth going to, even for a tourist.

near some other shops offering local foods and products. True, a small beer selection, however, I have never seen these beers anywhere, or had even heard of them for that matter. They have a number of slections from deep Quebec, you may not find elsewhere. A nice stop if you are are also planning to visit the surrounding market.

Can’t believe I haven’t rated this place before. This store in Marché Jean-Talon (Jean-Talon metro station) has everything you need to host a tasting of fine Québécois products. The micro selection is good, with a few breweries left out, but DDC is there, Brasseurs et Frères, Bièropholie will be there again soon, etc. Then the cider section is one of the best you’ll ever see in the province, with dozens of ice ciders from all over the province, some wines and other artisanal liquors, mostly at reasonable prices. Top that off with a decent selection of regional cheeses (some very hard to find anywhere), some pâtés, sausages, jams, mustards, vinegars, and you have all the ingredients you need for a smashing evening of discovering and rediscovering Québec’s finest artisanal savoir-faire.

This place sounded like it had great potential (market of flavour)! But yeah, they have one small wall of beer (compared to Simon Anthony’s). They are pretty close, so it’s worth going there, but you won’t find much that Simon Anthony doesn’t have. You you also check out the SAQ that’s nearby on Beaubien, I don’t remember the exact location, but they had some nice selection that you couldn’t get at either place.

Located in a large open market with lots of local cheeses and other goodies. This place boasts a very impressive ice cider selection. The beer selection was pretty lacking when I was there, however. Across from the physical store is a decent chocolatier. Around the corner, I found a few local cheeseries represented that weren’t in the store as well as two ice ciders not available in the store. Definitely worth the stop.

Établissement visité le 9 août en après-midi. Ambiance: Il est toujours agréable d’aller flâner au marché Jean-Talon. La section des alcools est maintenant séparé du reste du magasin. Tout est propre et bien présenté. Service: Le personnel connaît très bien leurs produits. Sélection: Quelques microbrasseries du Québec sont présente mais on y vas surtout pour les cidres, les vins, les hydromels ou toute sorte d’alcool du terroir. Ne pas oublier, que contrairement à la SAQ, les prix indiqués n’inclus pas les taxes. Nourriture: Fromages, pâtés, canards, et plein d’autres découvertes culinaires sont disponible. (22e rating d’établissement)

Un superbe magasin à visité et acheter des produits alccolisé québécois qui sont plus rare à trouver dans la majorités des SAQ. Je parle bien sur des cidres et des hydromiels, c’est la raison principal d’y aller, mais il y a aussi d’autre produits de chez nous qui sont aussi intéressants. À noté que tout les boissons alcoolisés (sauf les bières) sont dans une section nommé La Maison des Vin et des Boissons artisanales du Québec. Cette section est indépendante du magasin principal et vous devez payer ces produits dans cette partie seulement, c’est le seul inconvénience. La sélection de bière dans le magasin principal n’est pas si mauvaises, mais plus petit que les autres à Montréal et un peu plus dispensieux.
