My new favourite place in Montreal Stunning 29 tap list, all Quebec and mostly all very good (from what I sampled and saw). Great interior - like Volo in Toronto with higher ceilings and twice the space. Clean, well lit, nice bar. Good snacking foods. Beers in great condition (did not try the cask). Montreal finally has a beer bar! And based on this selection and service, it will be hard to top. An easy 15-20 minute walk (or 5 minute cab ride) from DDC.

This place is a little slice of heaven. A huge tap list of only Quebec micros could keep most people busy for days. Prices are good, and the food we had was quite tasty. Way better than your typical pub fare. Good music playing, crowded but not too much so... this place rules.

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...

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 Check the website for a weekly menu (though even then frequently outdated, but you may call ahead).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

After a night of drinking at Dieu du Ciel, I went to this place and was thoroughly impressed with their tap list. Even with Mondial a few days away, they had 16 taps on and Featured the Funky Weizen and a great saison. The decor reminds me of a pizzeria. There’s a terrace in back. It was great getting to hang out with some great Montrealers while here. A must stop while in Montreal, IMO.

Établissement visité le samedi 27 janvier vers 17h30. Ambiance: Petit bar de quartier dans le style que j’aime. Lors de ma visite la musique passait du francophone à l’anglophone dans le style rock. Exposition de toile à vendre sur les murs. Service: Sympathique, on a pris le temps de me présenter les bières au menu et m’indiquer qu’on pouvait commander un caroussel de 6 galopins. Sélection: 16 bières de plusieurs micro-brasseries québécoises étaient au menu. C’est intéressant de pouvoir comparer des bières du même style mais de brasserie différente. À noter qu’on y retrouve aussi des cidres, hydromel ou autres alcools du terroir québécois. Nourriture: Petit menu sans prétention. Nous avons pris une pizza et un sanwich à la viande fumée avec du fromage. Le tout à prix très raisonnable. (38e rating d’établissement)

Finally, Montreal has a decent Beer bar. A little off the beaten path, walkable from DDC. I’ve rarely seen so much varnish on a bar top, looks gorgeous. The rest of the place looks like an old Italian café, with a swell little terrasse in the back next to the basketball court. Rotating selection of taps, usually from Barberie but they have started to branch out to other micros, and often have rarities and one-offs. Young, hipster crowd. Decent cheese/paté plate. Service can range from slow to great. Recommended.

Petit, chaleureux et à côté de Petite-Italie, mais pas de ginos! Cool! Il y avait beaucoup de monde le soir que j’ai été, donc j’ai bu sur la terrasse, en avril (un peu frois. Une bonne sélection de bière, cidre et d’hydromiel. Le personnel était cool! Un rajout: avant le menu était domminé par La Barberie, mais heureusement de nos jours, j’ai vu le menu avec 7 brasseries sur 17 bières.

This place is small, but you feel good because of the friendly atmosphere. The service is fast and the choice of beers can please everybody with it’s variety. It’s a do again with my drinking buddy.

I like the ambiance in this place and it looked pretty cool inside. The patio is a good getaway from the smoky inside though the night I went it did get quite chilly towards the end of the evening. Draught list was strong with many styles represented from Barberie. There were a couple of ciders too. Overall there were about 12 taps and they just had a cask engine installed so they should have something available on that in the coming weeks/months. I ordered a "carousel" of six brews for $8.50 I think. Unfortunately the Barberie brews are often misses but that can’t necessarily be attributed to the venue. I’ll likely come back just for something new to try.
