Hell of a great stop. Clean, bright, open dining room and bar with a view of the brewery behind. Many beers on tap, tasters and pints well priced, and the quality of the beers was top notch. Small parking lot I imagine fills pretty quickly when they get busy. Lots of locals, quite friendly. Very friendly bartender. Did not try the food but it looked reasonably priced. Definitely worth going out of your way.
Visited on the Saturday evening of the second anniversary, so this was certainly not representative, but the place was packed and lively. The selection was obviously stunning with 2 of their oak-aged specialties available for take-out at very reasonable prices. All in all, we had a great time and chat with the owners despite the busy state of affairs. While I certainly don’t prefer the atmosphere, patrons and feel of the Montreal location, it makes a very worthy stop when going up or coming back from the Laurentians.
Not much of a looker from the outside, DDC’s microbrewery taproom manages to be comfortable on the inside with its bric-a-brac furniture and windows onto the microbrewery. The food menu is slightly more developed than the Montreal brewpub’s. The panini with prosciutto and fig jam I had was delicious. The beer selection is mostly based on what they bottle, so don’t come here expecting to find rarities. But if you are complaining about the selection here (all DDC high quality brews), you are one spoiled beer geek that needs a reality check.
More than a tap room, this is a full fledged pub, with a large sitting area, a nice pizza and sandwich menu, the main DDC brews on tap, some rareties, easy parking and friendly service. Wifi. Worth the detour!
Visited on a Saturday afternoon, very quiet, there were a dozen people at the most. The pub is sparcely but well decorated. The most annoying part of our stay was the service, very slow and not very knowledgeable, the two waitresses were much more interested in talking to each other than waiting on customers. The only service points I give are because the way the beer is served, in clean, appropriate glassware. We had some food and everything was fine, the prices are very reasonable and of course the quality is there.
Impressive to see more than a dozen people lined up for the brewpub to open. Quite rustic, brown-ish, and with a patio outside. The brewing equipment is visible from the public area. Lots of good beers on tap, including a few world class. Well worth waiting for, even though we spent more than an hour walking around in the neighborhood.
Nice large restaurant with a glass wall view of this legendary brewery. Great selection of fresh house brews and surprisingly tasty food menu with revisited Quebec classics, sometimes using their house beers as condiments. A bit out of the way but well worth a day trip, and fans can even find tshirts to complete their pilgrimage :)

Visited for the first time on 2/8/08, one week after it’s official opening. To note this is their brewerie and bottleling plant, so you won’t get all their line up like at the brepub in Montreal. It may not be the ultimat beer destination in Quebec, but it is in the Laurentians, if you are in the region, they have the same opening hours as the Mtl brewpub (3 PM). The pub it self is a bit biger, more spacious then the original one, but lest taps (10 vs 18 at Mtl). Their is a nice view of the brewerie & bottleling line via some big windows and they will have a patio right in front of the building. The place has a bit of the same sensation has the original. It is a nice set up. Good work DDC!

More light than the downtown brewpub, like the fact you get to s see all the posters from their house artist, got to sit with some of the brewers and the owner. Same great selection of beer and better food than the DT location.
