Deceptively tiny, one of those places that seem really big when you first go into it but that's only because there's so many people there. When it was busy, getting to the bar took a while. When it was dead, of course, it was easy. Only it vacillated between dead and busy at the drop of a hat so it took much strategizing to make sure your available beer supply kept pace with the problematic amount you wished to drink.

The decor woody and old and gorgeous, like nearly everywhere else in Montreal. The stereotype about Canadians being friendlier and kinder than American is absolutely, 100% true, so even during its busy periods the place felt more warm than it did oppressive.

Beer selection was fabulous, with fresh selections of the all of Du Ciel's mainstays along with some slightly weirder stuff (a tangerine IPA) and some truly fucking bizarre, "wow I have to try this even though it sounds awful" stuff (an absinthe IPA).

An absolute must-visit if you're in the city.

Wonderful brewery and bar in Montreals Mile End. Beer lovers delight. Sweet selection. They had five stouts on draft so me and my girlfriend were in flavor heaven. If you're from out of town, be cool and come here.

The Montreal location is the original brewery, they have opened another spot up north. The one in Montreal is convenient for most locals and tourists. They have about 20 lines dedicated to their products and will sometimes have some of their products in bottles too. They make good beer but It's a small place and gets crowded real quick. They get a lot of younger people there, a lot of students but also an older crowd and it doesn't get so noisy you can't hear yourself. The food is what you might expect from a pub and the menu is pretty limited (pizza, grilled cheese, ect...). All and all it's a great location for afternoon drinks or an evening out but I wouldn't go for dinner

Now this is exactly how I imagined a brasserie would look like! Great beers aside, the vibe of this place is incredible. Great bar and seating areas, helpful and knowledgeable staff, and some solid nachos! Be aware, though, that it's a bit of a walk from the Metro (and it was pretty darn cold at this time).

Went to this spot with another beer geek buddy of mine on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at the end of June. We sat inside and had flights of their delicious beers. Our service was excellent. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, also gave us advice on other places to visit while we were in the city. They had many beers on tap, all great. Great glassware too, which was for sale, and I bought a beautiful Teku glass.

Food was very good. Limited menu though.

Feels cramped and was very crowded.

Bartender was nice enough but seemed to disappear frequently.

In my opinion, their beers are overrated, but they did have a decent selection of stuff to try. Points for doing many different size pours. That is always great to see.

Wouldn't go back.
