Pour un dépanneur c’est très satisfaisant. Ça vaut la peine de faire le détour pour quelques bières parcontre on fait rapidement de le tour. Les prix sont biens, possibilité d’acheter à l’unité et en caisse. Les défauts : le staff ne connaît pas la bière et on y retrouve rarement voir jamais de brassins spéciaux.
This is 3 blocks from my house and i hate to have to go there.
They do not have a clue about beer, they just carried on where the past owners had left off.
lots of dusty old beers and most of the worst beers made in Quebec are available.DO NOT go out of your way to get here.
go to Montreal to get fresh and newer products.
This depanneur changed hands three times in the past years, and the beer selection went down.
before you were able to find anything, now, you find just the average micros and not the interesting stuff, they are loosing it
They’re loosing it constantly. They are not opened to new stuff anymore. They have awful beers that have been on the tablets for the past years (be careful). I think there is a new chinese ownership. Anyway, in Laval, it is still a decent place to buy your big micro beers grocery stores usually don’t have (DDC, 3 Mousquetaires, Charlevoix) at a reasonable price. I prefer to go in BDF as the beer offering is more carefuly selected...
Pas pire pour un dépaneur, surtout le fait que je travaille dans une épicerie (une IGA Extra) que le choix minime et frustant. Il y a meilleur, mais point de vue distance (je suis juste au nord), il "dépane" pour des choix rare.

Clean place, but small. And the owner always look at me strangely. And the little girl who is probably 3 years younger that me keeps on asking me my I.D. even if I come often. So I can’t really say I like that service. They have a good selection of Quebec micro ans seasonal beer. And since its in my city, well that’s the place I go to when i want some new beers!
I concur what has been said. This looks like nothing from the outside, but inside, it's very clean and well disposed, rather easy to find what you're looking for and basically pretty much any bottle available in Quebec besides (when I went anyway) Charlevoix brewery. I assume the staff is not so knowledgeable and helpful though from what I've seen.
If this is what the typical convenience store is like in Montreal, I'm moving! Quantities of St. Ambroise Vintage 2001, for $5; large, large selection of Quebec micros including Unibroue & McAuslan of course, but also Bieropholie, Schoune, La Barberie, etc etc. I don't have a lot of experience buying at stores in the Montreal area yet, but prices seem good and I was told that the Vintage Ale was $2 cheaper here than at a larger store. Out of the way, would be very easy to miss (best to email expert MartinT first), but a paradise for the Quebec beerhunter.
