Mon pit stop presque quotidien pendant longtemps. Les frigos sont toujours pleins, en général, les brassins plus spéciaux passent par là. Toujours intéressant de discuter avec le proprio qui est un vrai amateur de bières arisanales.
Visited on a Saturday night. Small convenient store with a decent sized beer section in Rosemont, not far from l’Isle de Garde. It looks smaller because it’s really packed (think Dépanneur de la Rive). I was the only customer there for the 10+ minutes I stayed. Service is non-existent (maybe I went at a bad time since a few people gave some high scores for service). Selection seems solid with most good Québec beers including some limited releases. Prices are ok for Montréal. I would come again if I am in the area but it’s not a place I would recommend to somebody who doesn’t know what he want before entering and doesn’t have much knowledge about Québec beers because of the lack of service and concerns about freshness.
Petit dépanneur, ayant une bonne section consacrée aux microbrasseries québécoises. Le choix et les prix sont intéressants et certaines bouteilles disparues des tablettes dans les meilleures magasins s’y retrouvent encore après un certain temps. Le service est absent, comme dans la plupart des établissements de ce genre. Correct si on est dans le coin.
Generic convenience store with a section representing half of its floor space crammed with Québec craft brews. Not exactly a central lcation, but in the Rosemont neighborhood, it’s as good as it gets although you could argue for a couple of ties. Carries almost every bottle available in Québec and tending not to sell out as quickly as many others. I’ve never been when there were more than two or three customers which makes me worry that freshness may sometimes be an issue, but I’ve been fortunate the couple of times I went. I would not bother with asking the staff for advise here though.
Tiny corner store which is rammed with shelves of beers and old cooler also full of micro beers. I haven’t seen so many beers crammed into such a tiny place ever. Selection is pretty good though you won’t find as much as Peluso. Owner is very nice and willing to help though has limited knowledge. Prices are fair and parking is reasonably easy to find.
I don’t know if I’ve seen more beer crammed into a smaller place. Walk sideways down the aisle and walk in freezer is crammed with Quebec micros. Nice owner although knows squat about beer. Can’t believe this place was two blocks from my brother-in-laws old place and I never knew about it.
Also known as «le paradis de la bière» (the beer paradise), this convienience store just looks as any other in town.
But, when you go in, you recognize its singularity by having an enormous variety of micobrewery beers. With a cheap cost, you’d like to go back there for more.
C’est l’endroit où je me suis initié à la bière (bonne) de microbrasserie. Un endroit de découvertes perpétuelles depuis 5 ans. Deux commis sympathique. Attention: N’essayez-pas de retourner des bières sans étiquettes, vous ne serez pas les binevenus.
