Intéressant, mais trop serré comme endroit. Leur trop grande sélection fait en sorte qu’on s’y perd un peu lorsqu’on vient finalement nous servir, et, souvent, ils n’effacent pas du tableau les bières qui ne sont plus disponible.
Le jeudi soir c’est un peu bruyant, belle ambiance néanmoins, j’aime bien le décor.
Je devrait y donner une autre chance, parce que c’est assez loin de chez moi quand même. 76
Mise à jour:
Alors, j’y retourne souvent finalement, surtout depuis l’agrandissemnet. Les serveurs(euses) sont assez efficaces, les bières sont servies moins froides et la bouffe est encore mieux. Définitivement un incontournable à Montréal.

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.

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$

Great local pub. With 30+ beers on tap, the selection is one of the greatest I’ve seen so far. Great variation and great beers from many micros from around Quebec, with two or three of their own that aren’t bad themselves. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Make sure you try this place out, even if it is a bit out of the way.

Great because immense list of local beers, and can order 1/4 pint ’gallopins" or even a ’carousel’ of 6 x 4oz samples of anything. VERY friendly and oriented to the appreciation of beer. They always have some special stuff on, and while house beers are good, they offer a wide range of (sometimes rarely-seen) selections.
I think I had a snack or two that were forgettable, but the beer, attitude and service and ambiance (student, warm, relaxed) all have it here. My numbers speak it all. My love affair only grows with each visit.
If you arrive before 3pm opening, wander up St Denis to the beautiful Italian area for some Espresso or a bite to eat. Gorgeous area. Metro Subway station Castelnau lands you perfectly a few blocks north of it.

UN INCONTOURNABLE à Montréal... au fil du temps cet endroit est en train de se développer une niche à part dans le domaine des bières artisanales en mettant judicieusement la priorité sur le Terroir Québécois... des bières de partout au Québec... des trouvailles à coup sur!

Very unassuming place from the outside, however once entering you’ll realize that you’re in for a serious beer treat. Tons and tons to choose from, generally (if not all) Quebec micros available on tap. The food is simple but absolutely superb, to quote myself (and that’s what she said in advance...) the smoked meat pizza is the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth.. holy moley it’s fantastic!!!! My *only* gripe is that they don’t run tabs and you’ve got to settle up for each round as it happens other than that - enjoy!

Very nice tap selection (33) full of good choices from Quebec micros. Not a word on the service, which was excellent. There is some food but you better like smoked meat, it’s good but there is little variety. The prices are reasonable.

Best tap selection I’ve found in Montreal. Kinda their version of Toronto’s Cest What? We arrived early afternoon, and the place was just about empty. Long with lots of wood and a small, shady patio out back. Beer lists all over the walls. Service was very friendly. Food selection was very basic, but what we had was good. I recommend the smoked meat pizza. Kinda out of the way if you’re staying downtown, but definitely worth a visit or six.

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.
