While it has been the best beer store in Quebec city for a long time, it’s not even a shell of its former self. Selection is ok, but often they either don’t have the new releases (including special DBSQ releases because they aren’t member of that association) or they have them a while after l’Axe du Malt. Service can be ok to subpar depending who is working but since the former manager left it’s not nearly as good. Prices are still ok. But with l’Axe du Malt a few hundreds meters away, the choice is easy.
Small place but well presented. I ask the only clerk in the place for some rare bottles or special release or even things that I cannot find in Montreal area and she couldn’t say. She finally showed me some really common bottles. Prices are a bit higher compared to Montreal area too. I found more interesting stuff one street further.
Fun beer store with a great selection of beers from the Quebec province. Most of the beer is stored in coolers which is always a plus. I had great recommendations from Francis and grabbed a Dunham Le Cerbère to go. I could of easily bought more but my backpack can’t fit any more beer! A nice visit along with Le Projet and Bateau de Nuit further along rue Saint-Jean.
Small beer store with a pretty good selection Had a night - shop feel with some food, 4 coolers of beer. IPAs were stored cold and warm which is fine I guess. Friendly staff. even spoke english which was nice!
Good selection. Fair prices. Facebook page is updated daily with pictures of new beers. They run out of special release very quickly so if they post something on FB, you can almost be certain it will be gone the next day.
This shop is well located in the middle of Quebec City near all the main attractions. The shop does indeed look very small and cramped but the selection is all quality. If you search long enough you will find some treasures hidden in some shelves (some rare Chouape and Brouhaha for me). Prices seem very reasonable for location and selection. Staff is willing to help if need be. I would recommend this place over JA Moisan which is located on the same street.
Visited February 6, 2014 in the evening, just before going to Bateau de Nuit. Small convenience store between the bar Bateau de Nuit and Old Quebec, in a neighborhood with a lot of convenience stores with a good beer selection, but this one is solid. It looks small but go to the counter, turn right and here are the beers. It doesn’t look like a big solection, but it is, all compact. Friendly staff, they seemed knowledgeable.
