As Barry said, this store has the huge advantage of being a tiny walk from DDC. The selection is pretty solid though, possibly as good as anywhere else in Montreal and there are quite a few older bottles, so you should watch out for those (or seek)

service, friendly, not pushy. Would be pretty mediocre US store, but he makes do with what he can sell. Prices about average for all four stores I visited on this trip. Easy to find parking in front. Not far from subway if you want to shlep. Mr. Rahman is knowledgeable and honest about what brews he carries and are available elsewhere that he can’t supply.

This tiny, cramped convenience store a couple blocks from Dieu du Ciel will get you an interesting selection of Quebec brews, but none of the rare stuff. They used to have old St.Ambroise Vintage Ales (priced absurdly high), but they’re now gone. It’s convenient because it’s near DDC, but otherwise I wouldn’t come here as they don’t carry all of Quebec’s micros, and other stores not that far carry them.

Be careful with what you buy here. Some bottles can be okay, but some have been there for years and are not stored in ideal temperatures - the place was a steam bath when I went in. And they had a DdC brown ale for sale from 2008! Probably okay to buy bigger beers from here, but I’d advise against APAs/IPAs and the like.

Smallish beer store with really cramped isles and lots of bottles. They have some really old stuff for sale if you’re looking for anniversary edition unibroues for example, or a little history of Quebec micro brewing. Its strong point is that it is located next to Dieu du Ciel, which probably figures on anybody’s Montreal visit list. Not a bad place to stock up, but you need to check dates.

Excellent place to find local Canadian beers after having a few at DDC. Very unassuming shop that really caters to the beer community. Rahman is very helpful and the prices are great.

I wandered past this store while exploring the Mile End to see what was available. Was happy to find a good range of Charlevoix beers. The owner was friendly but not craft beer oriented. Funny, there was a depanneur up the street that advertised Biere de Artisanale and I thought the prices were better there and the selection was about the same. But, if you’re wandering around the Mile End and want to tap into some Quebecois craft beer, this will certainly do.

A short walk (or stumble if need be, I’d imagine) from Dieu du Ciel!, there’s a nice variety of singles for purchase here, including a decent dumber of DdC. Most of the others there I had never seen before. After finding another shop with singles, I can say that this place is a bit high (2.49 bottles here were 1.99 at another shop), but the selection was pretty good. No credit cards though, so bring cash.

Recenntly renovated place. Good number of beers ofered but many of those sat there for years.

The most remarkable aspect of this store is not its collection, which is matched by quite a few stores in the Montreal area, but its location: a block from Dieu du Ciel. If you’re pressed for time, you can get most of the more interesting common micros from Quebec at this store and then drink to your heart’s content in the Northeast’s best brewpub, a stone’s throw away.
