Hands down one of my all time favorite beer spots! Weather you want to sit at a table, couch, bar, or outside, they have it. The interior is essential a beer shrine, covered with bottles etc. They had 17 house beers on tap which I have no complaints about. If you are anywhere near Montreal/NE you must make this a priority!
God, I’m lucky! Or I must thank my friend brewer that told the owner who he was. After a half-day of skiing, I stopped there for the first time... After an awesome Amère Veilleuse and a slightly disappointing amber Bariteau, "Bedondaine" Bourgault, obviously in a good mood, offered us both his Dernière Brosse Déchaînée (full 9$ glass!) and he had us taste his new IPA and his new 4% stout. I’m still amazed! Really a passionnate brewer that obviously likes the art beneath his job and that sure has his ways of making people fall in love with his most-interesting "artistic" brews. You have 3 brewpubs to visit in Québec? Dieu du Ciel (rue Laurier), Hopfenstark and this place. All others come next... And this one comes before Hopfenstark... ADDED: Service was not as good when Nicolas was absent. Amazing brews were available for the upcoming 5th anniversary...
LA place.. Excellente place. Le seule probleme c’est qu’il n’est pas a montreal. Un excellent choix pour les stouts et les bieres corsées. sans aucun doute c’est la meilleures places pour boire des bonnes bieres dans le coin. Malheureusement il n’est pas a montreal.
Comment fêter dimanche de Pâque en buvant de la bière!!! Soyons sérieux! Sur une petite rue à côté d’un Maxi, ce brewpub est un vrai petit trésor! Puisque c’était Pâque, j’avais presque la place à moi. 10 bières en fut ce jour là, j’en ai bu 4 en échantillon de 5.5 oz. (Coter #2, 3, 4 et 5 des plus populaires chez RateBeer). Tout une colletion de bouteilles et d’autres articles de bière.
This place is just a perfect place to go for a good beer and peace and quiet. I was there on a week day in the afternoon siiting in the sun with my beer budy. The service was excellent and the choices were great.
I went to Chambly to visit Unibroue brewery, but a guide told me about that new brew pub and let me tell you, that was a great visit. The beer museum by itself derve a visit. The staff is highly knowledgeable and accomodating. All the beers where great and you could see that the owner is passionate about beers. Prices are relatively cheap. One of my favorite brew pub overall.
Visited during the Mondial, 2005, with tiggmtl, ClarkVV, and Bret Kuhnhenn and family. This was a fabulous experience, not perhaps a "great brewpub" yet but an absolute must-visit for anyone on this site: the beer memorabilia has got to be seen to be believed, all five beers on tap were good-to-very good, staff and the berwer very very friendly, and the food while simple was excellent and quite cheap (mostly sausages and sandwiches). It’s no Dieu du Ciel! but in some ways I loved my first visit here just as much as my first time at that Valhalla. UPDATE December 2006. This place just keeps getting better; overall I’d say the beer is second only to DDC of brewpubs I’ve tried in Quebec; the food though simple sandwich fare is nicely done; and the service is always friendly even for a non-Francophone. At this point I think it’d be worth it to go up just to visit Bedondaine and there aren’t many brewpubs that are worth a 2 hour one-way trip to me....
Bedondaine et Bedons Ronds is a great brewpub in every aspect. First of all the beer is excellent, always well-balanced and enjoyable, they insist a lot on giving the perfect beer service to the customer, the best glass at the best temperature. The staff know their beers a lot and got to brew one with the owner. Nicolas. the owner is very friendly and likes to chat with customers. The food menu is limited but the food is good. The athmosphere in the brewpub is always relaxed and friendly, there a sofas and comfy chairs to help you relax and enjoy the beer. The place is nice to look to also, the main visual attraction is the impressive beer collection displayed there. All in all this is a great place.
