Small, cramped feel but has a nice deco or modern-something-or-other design. Smoky and loud at night, somewhat slow service, and the beer is the usual stuff... a stout that tasted like Guinness, or water, whatever, and a blanche that tasted no different than anywhere else in town. The tripel was a highlight I guess, a little too sweet, but drinkable. Might go back if they have different beer available.

Small, kind of tight place, I kept tripping over everything and I wasn’t even drunk (yet). The place itself is pretty nice, just way too small. Decent service. Good looking food, although I did not try any. Decent beer selection, although I wasn’t a huge fan of most of them. Not bad, it quenched my thirst on my way from Dieu du Ciel to Lamiere a Boire and Cheval Blanc.

Interesting chic kind of style. I wasn’t really blown away by any of the beers - actually, I was kind of disappointed with the ones that I tried. Service was quick to start but then kind of slowed down as it was quite busy the entire time that we were there. Easy to get to if you’re doing the pub crawl down St-Denis. It was somewhat smoky though not overwhelming by any means. Mediocre.

Small little local bar, with a very intimate feel to it. Didnt try the food, though it looked good. Quick service and some well-made if somewhat standard brews. The bitter was outstanding, in my opinion. Here on a Sunday evening and we were treated very well. Small brew setup but a respectable place nonetheless.

I first visited almost 2 years ago, with Oakes and Radek, and found the beer uninspiring, service a bit snotty, and smokiness unbearable. I am pleased to say that my second visit a couple of nights ago with tiggmtl was much more enjoyable; though I still wouldn’t call the beer great, the three I had were all decent and drinkable (if not exactly inspired), the look of the place in early winter is cozy and comfortable, and the (pricey) bit of finger food I had was excellent. I’ll return.

Although the layout in here looks great, it suffers from a couple of minor problems. When it’s busy which is most late week/weekend evenings, it gets extremely smoky of the windows aren’t open and in the winter, if it’s not full (and smoky), it’s cold. It gets packed late week evenings and is a bit of a social hub. Service is often disinterested though quick enough. There seems to often be a crowd of friends or regulars hanging around the end of the bar chatting. Generally have 5-8 beers available. Quality has been variable in the past but, perhaps due to recent changes in brewing staff, seems to be on the rise. While the beers are still not challenging, they are decent representations of style. Food is the star of the show here. It’s french bistro-like food. Somewhat fiddly and pricey but well worth it. Overall, I find myself going here more and more this year than I did last year.

Relatively small when second floor is not opened, this brewpub proposes around 7 different beers on tap at the same time. The beers are mostly average, so I wouldn't make it a priority when you're in Montréal, but the staff is courteous and it's not too far from downtown although parking is a pain. While I haven't eaten, I've been extremely tempted looking at the plates of my neighboors including literally pancakes piles..

Okay brewpub with interesting brews overshadowed by the excellent food. Now that smoking is outlawed, you can actually smell your beer and your food! The beer is really hit and miss (for example, the 500 dubbel was almost excellent recently, but the Noire was sad; it’s always like this). Their Ambrée de Blé, Saison, and 500 are my favorite so far. But the real highlight is the food. For example, the squid salad with lentils and beef tongue I recently had was splendid and creative. Everything I’ve ever had here was fabulous and inventive. If their beer was more constant, I would have lunch here very often.
