Went here after drinking some brews at Dieu du Ciel just a few blocks away. They recommended it as a place to get not only their beers, but a good selection...and they were right.
Lots and lots of Canadian micros, plus the usual Canadian macros (Sleemans, etc) and Imported macros (Guinness, Corona, etc).
They keep a lot of singles cold, three coolers worth, and then have *most* of them on the long warm wall. Didn’t see a lot of classics from Belgium, nor any US beers, but that worked for me because I was searching for Canada’s finest. As I was shopping the shelves, the guy came up to me with an empty six-pack holder: nice touch!
My only real complaint, and this is kind of a big one: NO CREDIT CARDS. Either need Cash or a Canadian debit. No American debits. Would probably have bought more if I didn’t have to use the ATM two blocks up and then come back to pay.
If you’re going to Dieu du Ciel and you’re from the US, definitely stop by.
Several visits over the years. This place has been the source for both a number of sought after rarities, and a number of disappointments in the form of stale beers. Brewers - please date your bottles. The better stuff also started creeping up in price. The main attraction is location - despite the flaws it’s proximity to Dieu du Ciel makes it an easy spot to pop into and see what is on offer.
Vraiment bien situé, près du pub DDC. L’inventaire est douteux de fraicheur et pendant longtemps, j’avais l’impression qu’il faisait plus chaud à l’intérieur qu’à l’extérieur. Toujours vérifier les dates. J’ai déjà trouver des joyaux cachés mais cette époque semble révolue.
Situé tout prêt de Dieu du CIel! Sélection intéressante, avec certaines microbrasserie obscures. Il faut faire attention aux dates puisqu’on y retrouve quelques antiquités (Brassin 2e anniversaire de Brasseurs et frères...) Pour certains produits, les prix sont exorbitants...
Be careful with what you buy here. Some bottles can be okay, but some have been there for years and are not stored in ideal temperatures - the place was a steam bath when I went in. And they had a DdC brown ale for sale from 2008! Probably okay to buy bigger beers from here, but I’d advise against APAs/IPAs and the like.
2 sips away from ddc;so the owner might not know much about beer,put this is the best service i have received in any montreal beer store(any store) this summer.
i like that most of the craft beers are NOT in the fridge.only negative is most of the 750 ml beers are on the ground floor...much bending to do.
I wandered past this store while exploring the Mile End to see what was available. Was happy to find a good range of Charlevoix beers. The owner was friendly but not craft beer oriented. Funny, there was a depanneur up the street that advertised Biere de Artisanale and I thought the prices were better there and the selection was about the same. But, if you’re wandering around the Mile End and want to tap into some Quebecois craft beer, this will certainly do.
Smallish beer store with really cramped isles and lots of bottles. They have some really old stuff for sale if you’re looking for anniversary edition unibroues for example, or a little history of Quebec micro brewing. Its strong point is that it is located next to Dieu du Ciel, which probably figures on anybody’s Montreal visit list. Not a bad place to stock up, but you need to check dates.
