I first stumbled upon this place after one of my friends living nearby told me there was a new brewpub that just opened near her place. She didn't really like beer, but she knew I did, so she dragged a few of us down. It was dark and empty, the place had been open only a few days and business was slow. I tried a few pints and was quite impressed. I came back a while later and there selection had changed already, with more good beers. The recipes change almost every time a beer is brewed, and the same beer is rarely brewed more than a few times.
I've since been going very regularly to enjoy both the relaxed atmosphere I seek in bars, the great beer with oft changing selection, and of course to watch the hockey game. For two days a week they show the Habs playing on a big screen TV and put one of their beers on special at a very decent price (2.75, 3.75, 4.75 in each of the periods). It's not a sports bar but it's a great place to watch the game and have decent beer for a change.
The food here is few, but good. They 'Euro' dogs are fantastic. A sausage in a baguette covered in dijon and sauerkraut, can't be beat. They serve olives, and roasted nuts, plates of cheese and various cafe-style sandwiches.
The service here is great, very fast and very friendly. Often willing to chat about their current or upcoming beer, the Habs, or anything else. All of this has contributed to this fast becoming my favourite brewpub in Montreal. Definitely worth checking out for anyone visiting or living in Montreal, even if just for the great beer.

This place is good for microbrews. However the smell when you first enter may scare you but don't walk out just yet. Their flights are reasonable and the beer s good. You should go for their appetizer of olives, crackers and cheese. It goes well with the flight
