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 Check the website for a weekly menu (though even then frequently outdated, but you may call ahead).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

(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$

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!

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

Of all the places I’d been in Montreal so far, this was the most modern, upscale and hipster. They still did frites and beer very well. I love being able to get a glass of beer (as opposed to a pint) anywhere in the city, but hate the information design of the menus! Brewery first, then beer name, dammit! That said, the waitstaff was very friendly, quick and pleasant. I thought the selection here was less enamoring than Le Saint Bock, but still very nice to see a solid focus on the regional beers, if some prominent members were missing in my opinion.

Stumbled here on a Monday afternoon around 3:30pm before the Habs retired Larry Robinson’s #19. As one walks in, he is greeted by plenty of wood tables and a very bistro-like atmosphere. There are 3, yes 3, chalkboards describing the 19 beers on tap. There seemed to be a nice selection of Quebec brews, although the styles seemed pretty uninteresting. There were lots of ambers, and blonde lagers on tap. A couple of porters and a couple of pale ales were also there. Service was nice and attentive. A smorgasbord of music was playing in the background. No TVs. Relaxed and chill. Also, I must tell you that the bathrooms here are the CLEANEST bathrooms I have EVER seen at a drinking establishment. Save for the cracked toilet lid, the bathrooms here were immaculate. I did not have food, but the food appears to be in the same vain as Dieu du Ciel’s...

Stopped in on a Friday night, a bit crowded but we still managed to find a pair of seats all the way at the end of the bar. Having only been there once I can’t really comment on what the service is regularly like, but I was certainly thrown a bit when after ordering a first round (a well priced sampler of 6 beers for $13) I offered the bartender my card, and asked him to keep the tab open. He responded that he’d have to run it in 25 minutes because he was leaving. I have had the bartender coming in next ask if I wanted to close out and reopen so the previous bartender could get tipped, but never had someone tell me they’d be leaving so I could only have a tab for a small time. Poor form. Rest of the servers there seemed quite quick and friendly though. Only had beer here and as their small behind the bar kitchen seemed slammed I was ok with that. Looked like typical bar fare, nachos, small pizzas, cheese plates. Found it odd that there was just one type of cheese that was put on both the nachos and the pizzas. Beer menu was great, even if not all of the beers on it were amazing. Just really nice to see a place with such an emphasis on local beers, as the night I was there I think all 31 on tap (there was an open tap) were brewed in Quebec. Certainly worth a stop, and I have a feeling I may stop in again next time I’m up since I know I’ll be able to find a healthy amount of local stuff.

Visited the other night with tiggmtl. Nice little selection of ciders and meads along with the six (so-so) from La Barberie. Bored though reasonably efficient service...nice little place, with decent though not spectacular food that I believe was brought in from elsewhere. I’m told that going early is important as it will get very smoky late; its extremely small, so I can believe it! Great little Peruvian restaurant across the street where you can get a Peruvian beer.
