Visited on Monday around 5½ to 6½ p.m. Located really close to Bell Center. Place is large but divided in small sections (an old large house) and it looks a bit messy (unlike l’Albion where it’s smaller, divided better and much more cozy). Service was friendly and fast, but it’s difficult to get much information about the beers. There was at least 8 of their own beers on tap when I visited and there was prices listed for generic private importations but I didn’t see a list of those. Their house beers - I have tried the 3 best as told by the waitress - aren’t bad but two of them were intensely boring. Price are normally good (4$ for 12 oz or 6,50$ for a pint) but are great during happy hours (12 oz for 2,61$ + tx, really?). Decent pub food (we tried Samosas, poutine, chicken wings, onion rings and fries, but there’s also some sandwiches / burgers). Tapas are large enough for 1 people. Quality is average, but good for the price. Definitely not a place I would make an effort in order to visit, but a decent option when you are around Bell Center so I will likely be back someday.

Great place to go out in the weekends, live music and decent beer.

Grungy pub with odd smells and average at best beers to match. I can imagine this being a late night option if you find yourself downtown and/or buzzed and incoherent to the point that you don’t really care what you’re putting in your mouth. There’s a small stage for live music. The lady behind the bar was pleasant.

Nice little beer bar. Ambience is niece and the beers aren’t to bad. Went there on a Tuesday night and they had a live band. The prices rant that bad either.

Quiet, old-style place with an attentive and knowledgeable service. I may not have had many beers there, but I surely cannot understand the quite hard criticisms I have heard about this place

A larger than expected brewpub in downtown Montreal. The interior has a lot of nooks and crannies so there are plenty of seats. The main level has a grungy pub feel while the downstairs is a nice lounge with some TVs. There is a nice shaded terrace on the main level too. They had 7 regulars on (IPA, honey brown, extra blonde, honey beer, strawberry blonde ale, nut brown, and scotch ale). I enjoyed the IPA, although it is more of a hoppy pale ale. They also have 4 seasonal beers, 2 of which I sampled (a IIPA and a ginger cream ale) and were very good. Beware- the beers are quite pricy. Only happy hour prices were listed on the board- $5.50/pint for regulars and $6.50 for seasonals. And a pint of Guinness was $8.75! Bartenders and patrons spoke mostly English. Overall, I was surprised by the quality of the beers (in contrary to ratings by prior posters, I found the 3 beers I tried to be very good) and certainly it is worth stopping here for at least one round.

I’ve never been much impressed by the beers (the IPA was pretty good), but it’s a decent place, especially for that neighbourhood. The food is quite tasty, and it’s not a bad (student-y) place to hang out.
