“Close to the Fous Brassants, nice pick as they do have above average selection of beers, yet, not the one I asked for (sold out), but that was a tough one. Great food, a must try for sure.“

“Situé au centre ville bonne biere de microbrasseries fait sur place . Seul bémol c’est plus ou moins chaleureux, il manque du bois et de la brique au décors.“

“Pretty much the only bottle shop of the region. It’s not super organised a bit dusty I would recommend looking a the dates. Maybe the clerk didn’t had time to refill the fridge but there was empty fridge space when Ipa were sitting on shelves. It’s right off the highway. I wasn’t impressed by my visit. I wasn’t offer any help but that not a problem since i’m a beer geek“

“Located on the busy main the patio is pretty much on the sidewalk and the street is quite noisy. The Service was a bit slow but their was only a single person to serve. I didn’t ate there. House beers are fair to boring. Nothing dramatic. You can buy bottle to go“

“Bon choix (probablement un des rares bottle shop du coin), tous les suspects habituels sont présent. Vérifier les dates, plusieurs trucs disparus des tablettes s’y retrouvent encore . Service absents et prix un peu plus chers que la moyenne.“

“Bâtisse un peu défraîchie située sur une rue passante. Service sympathique, efficace et connaissant ses produits. Pas vraiment de nourriture, mais quelques grignotines. Bières plutôt décevantes et un peu chères. Palette de dégustation comprenant toutes les bières présentes. Les enfants sont les bienvenus, du moins sur la terrasse.“

“Endroit plus ou moins chaleureux. Bon service. Choix décent. Je me suis procuré de leurs produits en bouteille, pour emporter. Il en manquait derrière le comptoir et la serveuse est descendu pour aller me chercher celle que je voulais.“

“Without a doubt the largest beer selection in Rivière-du-Loup. This is actually a gas station with a convenience store located right at one of the entrance of the town. They have a good part of floor space dedicated with craft beer, I’d say the craft beer section accounts for 1/4th of the floor space. You’ll get your Charlevoix, Trou Du Diable, Dieu Du Ciel, Brasseurs Du Temps, Trois Mousquetaires, and many many more. It was missing a few smaller Quebec micros, those that barely have enough to send to the Montreal and Quebec area. I stopped there because I was looking for a limited Dieu Du Ciel release (Solstice Framboise) that was sold out in Montreal. Apparently they never received it in Rivière-Du-Loup (although they receive Dieu Du Ciel) but I found it in Rimouski, so apparently some delivery trucks with limited release drive as far as Rimouski but don’t stop in Rivière-Du-Loup. So this beer store is for locals only, there’s no way a foreigner would make it as far east as Rivière-Du-Loup without going the extra 45 minutes to Rimouski. One thing I should note, the local Rivière-Du-Loup brewpub (the awful Fous Brassant) are now hand-bottling their beers, no labels, just tags on them, and you can find them at this store and probably some local grocery stores.“

“Friendly staff that are proud of their region and beers. There is no food to be had here except for munchies. The beers are okay but I’m happy i stopped by to have a sample of all their beers.“

“Seems to be a night club like atmosphere that serves higher end pub fare with some regional and international beers. Archibald, Boreal, Unibroue and St. Ambroise head the regional beer lists with Kilkenny, Guiness, Kronenberg and Harp head the international section. Touristy spot.“

“First time in there. I think the place is about a year old. Ambiance was a bit cold; somewhat big, white walls. Service was very slow. Selection was okay, for a new place, but I felt it was somewhat pricey. Overall, not an extraordinary place, but I’m willing to give it another chance next time I’m around.“

“Visited for the first time July 8, 2012, just after visting Les Fous Brassants brewpub. I feel like I just went back in the late 80’s, early 90’s, I was in this town in 1995 so I guess it would have look like this back then. The sevice was very good, but I doubt that their knowledge of beer is the same. As for the beer slelection is very impressive, but you can get then at any good beer store or SAQ store. And pricy to, Orval was 4X the SAQ price and more expensive then a Rochefort 8. At least the food was delicious (the pizza was excellent) and a good price! A not bad place!“

“Visited for the first time on July 8, 2012. located in the (so call) Old Rivière-du-Loup, it is a very nice new brewpub, and the first for this town. In a couple of weeks, they should have a white ale and a scotch ale, but for now I only had the first two house brews, far from mind blowing, but they are very drinkable. I had the brewer as bartender and he was fun to talk to and is service was great. This is come back place if I’m in the area.“

“Brand new brewpub in a faraway town that needed it. A few steps from L’Estaminet (decent restaurant with a good bottle selection), this brewpub for now serves only a couple of its brews, both brewed with Frontenac malts (which are highly distinctive and polarizing). For now, it’s hard to expect anything stellar to come of their tanks since their goal is to get their clientele used to beer which is not Labatt Blue and Coors Light. So expect ’colors’ for a while (blond, amber, red, dark, white, etc.) Guest brews were from Naufrageur and Corsaire and were well chosen since they were offering styles/flavors which the housebrews didn’t offer. All in all, this is still developing, but if you are in the area and you get the brewer/owner as your bartender, you will be in for a great time.“

“Best place to get beer within miles micro but mostly good imports are offered there. Rochefort among others. A bit pricey but hey you’re far from Montreal. The food selection is wide and everything tasted there was good. Be sure to stop for lunch if you’re close by“

“Wow! Un des moments forts de mon dernier voyage en Gaspésie. J’ai soupé là, et j’ai goûté à une Rochefort 8 pour la première fois de ma vie et à ûne autre introuvable ailleurs au Québec. Endroit impressionnant pour le choix de bières, en tenant compte du fait que nous soyons au Québec, mais un peu plus ordinaire (mais tout de même correct pour la bouffe). Je ne connais aucun endroit qui offre un meilleur choix de bières importées dans la région de Montréal. Bravo! ENGLISH: Great choice of beer on a pittoresque commercial street. A place to stop by for any beer loving tourist in the region. A lot of Québec and an interesting choice of international beers that you could probably get in the US or in English-Canada. Go for local, then! Throughout the imaginary Country of Québec, this pub is one with the greatest selection of beers.“

“Établissement visité le vendredi 28 décembre 2007 vers 18h. Ambiance: Décoration style pub, musique rock, écran de télé diffusant du hockey. Service: Très rapide malgré que l’établissement était complet. La serveuse semblait connaître assez bien les bières disponibles. Sélection: Plus de 150 bières disponible principalement d’Europe (Silly, Rochefort, Westmalle, etc). Nourriture: Nous avons pris une pizza et un panini et les deux étaients délicieux. Le menu est très diversifié. (63e rating d’établissement)“
