Stopped by on a Thursday around lunchtime and I was the first customer; although others trickled in, the place never filled. Inside was a bit dark with a long bar and some restaurant tables, and there was a second overflow room that was a bit brighter. But the patio in back is very nice, a dozen or more restaurant tables shaded my maple and elm trees. Staff were friendly and efficient. Pandemic era taplist is now online, accessed through a scanned QR code, although the handwritten board is still there. Good mix of house beers brewed by MaBrasserie and guest taps - half a dozen saisons kept me happy for several hours, and staff were helpful regarding choices. Food was tasty and portions are huge. Street parking could be tough, so I walked from my Airbnb. I saw no dogs or kids. Solid placxe.
We were seated to beergarden which was quite tight. But with a nice view to basketball court where sweaty men played basketball. Yeah not enough room here. Service was bit rude and slow, but I didn't mind that. Huge selection of local craft, but hadwriting on blackboard was a mess. Smoking allowed on beergarden. Might come back.
Visited on 4th July 2017. A real pub feel to the venue, with an abundance of wood. Divided into three distinct drinking areas, plus an intimate beer garden, perfect for a warm July night. If you are llooking to sample as many local beers as you can in one place, then look no further. No fewer than forty beers available on draft. A lively young clientele are served by young enthusiastic staff who all love their beer and are all fully conversant in English. I had already eaten elsewhere, but the food looked and smelled amazing. My weeklong vacation to Montreal is young, and I may yet return. A Must for all beer enthusiasts visiting Montreal.

Good pub with frequent live music and dozens of local beers on tap. Can get crowded. Great place to sample local brew in Montreal.
