Nice place. A bar that you can hear yourself talk, except when a live band is there. The selection is quite all right. Everything is homemade there. For the food, well, it’s a bit short. If you go there it’s for the booze !!!
Not bad, not great. Beers were ok, but far superior to anything in the immediate area. I would go here again. Highlight of the expeirence was definitly the service. Attentive, knowledgable and polite. Again a decent spot. fyi- They seem to have a lot of bands that play here, which is def, a plus.
This place is great! A really friendly atmosphere, live good music, pac man shalk board drawings, I loved this place! The beer selection was really good too, 8-9 regular tap beers plus a few seasonals as well as a few exterior bottled selections. The only problem as I see it is there’s no food, or the kitchen was closed, or something. But there’s 99 cent pizza 2 doors down. the location of this place, in general, is also great, right in the heart of downtown. Skip Dieu du Ciel, check out Brutopia! (Oh and it’s not "wood curling" as muffin_man has stated, it’s shuffle board!! :D)

Un vrai pub ! Le décor est abimé, mais ça fait un charme. Il faut aller au sous-sol, c’est vraiment un beau bar. Les bands sont chouettes en général. Je trouve la bière très bien, style anglais. La IPA cask à elle seule vaut le détour.
Went there with a friend. We got a seat out on the patio and the sun was shining :) It is very nice to relax out there and watch the people go by.
We weren’t sure what beer to order so the waitress brought us tasters (50 ml. glasses) of all the beers we wanted to try, free of charge. I had the Blackout Stout wich was quite nice. When it started raining we ran inside and I have to say I liked the patio better than the inside. The inside was quite dark but the waitresses made up for it with their smiley faces :)
I was there on a busy saturday night with a live band. the band was good, but the service was slow as can be expected since the place was packed. atmosphere is welcomine and interesting. a nice place to hang out - right on crescent street in the middle of everything.
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.
