Visité à plusieurs reprises depuis l’ouverture. L’endroit est facile d’accès et il est possible de stationner sur la rue ou encore dans le grand stationnement municipal situé juste en face. Il s’agit d’un ancien IGA qui a été converti en microbrasserie avec brewpub adjacent. On retrouve également une grande terrasse à l’avant. L’intérieur est vaste et des grandes fenêtres à l’arrière de la salle permettent de voir la brasserie. Le menu des bières est inscrit à la craie sur plusieurs grands tableaux. En plus des excellents produits DDC brassés sur place, la sélection comprend généralement quelques brasseurs invités. Le service est efficace et le personnel connaît bien les bières et peut adéquatement conseiller les clients au besoin. Pour ceux qui sont de la rive-nord de Montréal (ou qui passent dans le secteur), ça vaut grandement la peine de se rendre à St-Jérôme plutôt que d’aller au DDC de Montréal qui est plus petit et souvent plus achalandé.
Impressive to see more than a dozen people lined up for the brewpub to open. Quite rustic, brown-ish, and with a patio outside. The brewing equipment is visible from the public area. Lots of good beers on tap, including a few world class. Well worth waiting for, even though we spent more than an hour walking around in the neighborhood.
Nice large restaurant with a glass wall view of this legendary brewery. Great selection of fresh house brews and surprisingly tasty food menu with revisited Quebec classics, sometimes using their house beers as condiments. A bit out of the way but well worth a day trip, and fans can even find tshirts to complete their pilgrimage :)
Hell of a great stop. Clean, bright, open dining room and bar with a view of the brewery behind. Many beers on tap, tasters and pints well priced, and the quality of the beers was top notch. Small parking lot I imagine fills pretty quickly when they get busy. Lots of locals, quite friendly. Very friendly bartender. Did not try the food but it looked reasonably priced. Definitely worth going out of your way.
we dont have this kind of places in Bolivia, then i realized how much i miss this one

Drove from Ottawa to St-Jerome LITERALLY just to visit this place.
It’s pretty inauspicious. As someone else noted, it DOES kind of look like a place that would sell swimming pools or some type of industrial tools. Inside it’s, well, pretty dark, but still weirdly inviting. Huge hand-drawn chalkboards announce the beer and food offerings, the massive L-shaped bar features a hypnotizing, tantalizing row of DdC taps, each one a promise of some delicious concoction. I had literally every single beer they had to offer on tap, and stayed long enough to enjoy two small meals, both of which were simple but tasty.
The food menu is definitely pretty limited, but it has some nice offerings, and they’re more than reasonably priced. The beer is also more than reasonably priced. Tasting glasses are $2.50, pints are $6.50 - and given the insanely good quality of the beer on offer, this is a steal in my books.
The service is a little slow at times, but they all seemed pretty friendly and well-informed. The spacious patio outside is nice and comfortable but there’s nothing to look at, that’s for sure. The music was good, the atmosphere was nice, and if you really want to settle in there are board games you can play (Battleships, anyone?)
Not sure I would visit this place more than once if it was serving some generic assortment of beer, but since they serve 15 kinds of DdC, it’s worth multiple visits for the beer alone.
Stopped in here on the way to a cottage for lunch and man do I like this place. Nice patio out front with plenty of seating, inside has a decent amount of space, bunch of taps from DDC (including some special offerings, seasonals and casks) with a few guest taps too. Offer regular bottle selections to go along with some rarities depending on releases and they actually have food (compared to the downtown location) that isn’t cooked in a microwave/broiler that is quite tasty. Worth a visit if you are in the neighborhood although if you are staying in Montreal proper probably not worth the drive if you can visit the central DDC location.
