Visited on 3rd October 2017. Vast brewpub in a modern building not far from North station. Huge venue with lots of tables packed in. Decor is clean and smart and brewery themed. Beer range is decent with some R&D specials on plus the regular list. 20 easy ticks here if you've not been before must be a bonus. Flights available. Ate here and the good was good with huge portions. Prices and service solid. Decent venue. Not world class but would revisit as bound to pick up new beers.

I attended an event during a conference here so the atmosphere seems to be more amplified during my visit than typical. They had 20 beers with interesting descriptions but most of them weren't executed very well. Not a place I plan to ever return to.

Abroad, this is one of the places I’ve been to most times - though most of them was before joining RateBeer. More for the beers than the deco. It is a very industial looking place, lots of stainless steel and concrete. Really good service. I tried 16 different on flights on my last visit.

Large, modern space; average beers - 20 on tap when I stopped by, good pizza, staff not too attentive and does not seem happy. Update may 2017. Pizza is no longer on the menu. Fish and chips was not too bad, although cole slaw was rather dreadful. Place once again is empty - this time on Monday afternoon.

Close to my hotel so stopped in. 20 beers of theirs on tap. Tried 3 that were just average. Lots of room in building and at bar. Decent but far from memorable.

Ambiance is so so. Feels like what we have here in Quebec (Cage aux sports or Les 3 Brasseurs). The service is quite slow and the waiters are not really that kind. Good selection of beer. Unfortunately none of them are good. I had 5 beers and didn’t enjoy any of them. Their pizza was good.Overall this is not a place that I’ll go back. Nothing really interesting here.

Didn’t really plan a stop at this place. But someone really had to use the restroom, so we decided to go anyways. Wanted to do a tasting flight. Ended up doing two of them and have a dessert as well. The ice pie was soo good! And it was huge! I’d probably drop by for a quick stop when around again. Their blueberry beer where they actually really trow in a few blueberries is weird though.

Nice enough brewpub. Had a tasty fried haddock sandwich. Had a flight of 4 beers to sample; 3 were fine, one was very good ("Contender IPA"). They were out of the two "big beers", which was disappointing. But overall I was not disappointed - a good meal with some decent beer.

Not really fussed about this location. I found the beers I had in the flight disappointing. The pizzas were average at best. Staff were fine during a busy evening. Good for the ticks but not a must visit.

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. Almost empty at first, but there was a lineup by the time we were done. Huge place with tons of seating. Sports bar interior, tons of jumbo TV’s all set to sport channels. Their housebeers are not bad at all considering the "commercial" setup of the place, some are completely boring but the hoppy ones I had were quite ok actually. Prices are quite decent, we had some flights and an appetizer. Service was a bit tacky, not knowledgeable about beer but efficient. Not a place I’d revisit a ton, but worth some time.
