Rastacouere  (664) Montreal, Quebec | May 29, 2007| Updated November 22, 2007
A constantly improving place in terms of selection now that their deal with La barberie seems less active. Many of the best beers in Quebec from tougher to find brewers will be offered on draught. Calm, friendly atmosphere and service. Laid back and pleasant. brbr Nowadays one easy member of the top 5 places to have a beer in Montreal, perhaps top 3. I love the laid-back atmosphere and feel at home possibly more than in Dieu du Ciel. Prices are generally democratic, certainly so before 7 or 8pm. Staff is friendly and attentive. Check the website for a weekly menu (though even then frequently outdated, but you may call ahead). Nice ceiling. Seems to constantly have at least 15 draught offerings these days. On top of the less rare barberie and Au Maître-Brasseur, this is one of the rare places to find Alchimiste on tap and rarities from Charlevoix, À la Fût, Hopfenstark.

Visited on Saturday 3rd March 2012 fairly late around 22.30/23.00. Good vibes, busy but service held up well. Good selection, 2 cask lines, no dud beers here. 40% or so of those on tap were from Dunham. Really enjoyed our 2 or so hours here, wish we’d cut away from DDC way earlier - this place is way ahead of DDC for choice, service and atmosphere!

Comments: Awesome beer bar up St Laurent past Dieu Du Ciel. Open late. Large tap list of all local beers including many specialties and tap-only offerings. Half pours permitted. They prefer you don’t run a tab and pay as you go, but tough shit. People here were really nice, somewhat rowdy as there was a Montreal Canadians playoff game and they brought out a projector and bed sheet- this place does not have a TV. Looked like they had a good Scotch and perhaps Ice Cider selection. Didn’t look at the food menu or bottle list but they have both.

MartinT  (521) Montreal, Quebec | March 28, 2004| Updated October 21, 2006
(Rerate, October 2006): This cozy, artfully decorated beer bar now has 18 taps filled with Quebec micros, thus making it a leader in the province. The latest visit yielded beers from Charlevoix, Abri de la Tempête, Trois Mousquetaires, Maitre-Brasseur, and Barberie. Beers are served at proper temperature, which is quite nice also. They also feature Quebec-made liqueurs and hard ciders, perfect accompaniment to your plates of pâté and local cheeses. This place is becoming one of the most interesting beer haunts in eastern Canada.

Stopped by this place on a Saturday afternoon and liked it so much, I went back on Sunday. 30-ish taps from all over Quebec in a wide variety of styles. A simple food menu with small pizzas, sandwiches and cheese plates featured. The beer is well-selected and the owner/bartender is very knowledgeable about the beers on offer. Well-priced as well, with each taster running about 2-2.50. A bright indoor bar area and a nice shaded leafy back terrace. My server probably could have been more attentive on the second visit but she wasn’t so bad that it got annoying. If you want to see what is going on in the brewing scene in Quebec, this is the place to find out.

Been coming here since it opened and this is the best taphouse for showcasing Qc talent. And best of all, they know own a brewery (Dunham-B&F) so more reasons to go. Nice simple menu, not expensive, great cheeses and cold cuts du terroir, and an extensive tap list with samples (galopins) for 2 to 3$ each, 6 for 12$

32 taps. Incredible selection on taps. All local. Big patio on yard. Popular on Wednesday night. Unfortunately no tags on taps.

I suppose 36 draft beers should be enough for anyone... Busy place, excellent selection of local stuff.

Montreal’s best bar, a bit out of the way (it is just west of Dieu du Ciel). A cute little pub, right next to a kids’ playground. It has a beautiful outdoor terrace which is shaded by trees. But the reason to come here is the beer. 33 taps, all brewed in Quebec, and a variety of brewers and styles represented. They offer samplers, 10 oz, and 20 oz pours. They do have a food menu which is short- mostly sandwiches, pizza, appetizers, cheese plate. Not as good as similar food from other Montreal brewpubs but it’s decent enough. Even though I prefer brewpubs, this was a great stop as I could sample many Quebec beers not available to me otherwise.

Longish but quite doable walk up from Dieu du Ciel. I really like the room, we sit in the cozy benches in the corner. The patio looks nice but fairly busy. Service is very friendly and cheerful. Our waitresses English was only marginally better than my french (ie. not great) but we managed. Tap list is pretty lengthy (29), but the number of stars is a lower percentage, with the bulk being made up of some of the better mid-range Quebec microbreweries. We ordered a sausagey sandwich which came with a simple salad. The hot mustard on the sandwich was unexpected and powerfully sinus clearing. Damn! Not super convenient to downtown, but I could see spending a long evening here if I was a local or had more time in town. Very nice.
