It was February, so nobody sitting outside in the back, but looks like they have a decent amount of space. There’s a few different seating/dining areas, but we sat at the bar in what I assume is the main dining area.
The service was quick and friendly, and they speak English well, for travelers like myself. I didn’t ask too much about the beer or anything, but they seemed to know what they were doing.
The draft list is impressive. Seemed like about 40 beers on draft and there were a couple special bottles, including a special barrel aged offering from Dieu du Ciel. Beers are served in good condition as well. The beers are mostly from Quebec but also a good selection from around Canada in general.
This place really is top notch. Highly worth a visit if you are in Montreal. Arguably even more worthwhile than Dieu du Ciel.

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!

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 Check the website for a weekly menu (though even then frequently outdated, but you may call ahead).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.

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.

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

(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$

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

Stopped here on a Monday afternoon for a handful of samplers. Very good selection of Quebecois brewers, almost all sessionable beers. Prices are $14 for a 6-beer sampler, which we did 2 of. Service was good, though I would expect so on a quiet Monday afternoon. I’d say a must-hit when in Montreal.
