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.
Quite a large place (especially compared to the brewpub in downtown Montreal). Service was ultra fast on a Sunday afternoon, no big surprise. Staff was super helpful, chatty, seemed very proud of their products and eager to let customers sample them for free. Good selection of food, ought to try the smoked ribs, next time. Only real downside: why does it have to be so far from Montreal?
we dont have this kind of places in Bolivia, then i realized how much i miss this one

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.

Drove from Ottawa to St-Jerome LITERALLY just to visit this place.
It’s pretty inauspicious. As someone else noted, it DOES kind of look like a place that would sell swimming pools or some type of industrial tools. Inside it’s, well, pretty dark, but still weirdly inviting. Huge hand-drawn chalkboards announce the beer and food offerings, the massive L-shaped bar features a hypnotizing, tantalizing row of DdC taps, each one a promise of some delicious concoction. I had literally every single beer they had to offer on tap, and stayed long enough to enjoy two small meals, both of which were simple but tasty.
The food menu is definitely pretty limited, but it has some nice offerings, and they’re more than reasonably priced. The beer is also more than reasonably priced. Tasting glasses are $2.50, pints are $6.50 - and given the insanely good quality of the beer on offer, this is a steal in my books.
The service is a little slow at times, but they all seemed pretty friendly and well-informed. The spacious patio outside is nice and comfortable but there’s nothing to look at, that’s for sure. The music was good, the atmosphere was nice, and if you really want to settle in there are board games you can play (Battleships, anyone?)
Not sure I would visit this place more than once if it was serving some generic assortment of beer, but since they serve 15 kinds of DdC, it’s worth multiple visits for the beer alone.
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 :)
