Stopped by for lunch on a busy a Saturday. At least 10 beers, different styles and very good quality.

Service was a little slow, but friendly & helpfull.

We ate outside on the terrace and really enjoyed it.

Had the BMW and Framboise Saison, both well brewed.

Worth a vist.

I went to the brewery on a sunny fall day. The Terrasse was full, it was empty inside.

The good: The beers are great. They had 7 choices on tap, including 2-3 that have never been bottled. The Poutine here was outstanding. the best Ive had in a long time. Not a huge food selection, but if you want poutine, you wont be dissapointed.

The bad: The service was slooow. I probably waited about 30 minutes to be served my 1st beer. And then it took another 20 minutes to pay at the end. They only had 2 people working there, and with a lot of people ordered flights, they were just very understaffed. Nice guys, but way to slow

Overall, great food, fantastic beer. I hope your not in a rush

Came here on a rainy Saturday afternoon for their 2nd anniversary. Tucked in the Eastern Townships in an unassuming town, this brewery is rustic, cozy and on the rise on the local beer scene.

Beer selection was great with 2 casks plus various barrel-aged offerings. The anniversary beers were available to go and they always have their six-packs available for take-out. The food was good but limited, a few gourmet poutines. Eloi, the head brewer, was right there talking with a few customers and feeling the vibe. Even if the weather was disagreeable, the small pub was packed and many had brought their kids (there's a note in their ad that says they welcome the whole family).

A little out of the way for me but i thoroughly enjoyed my visit and would detour here again for sure.

This is a good pub. They have there own beers on tap, 8 at the time. Two were out. You can get there bottles of beer too. The food is ok, about 5 items to order from poutine to wings. Service was good. Went in the afternoon, so there were familes there with kids. Nice enviroment.

Believe it or not, Québec has it's own little wine country. Granted, most of it is plunk, especially the reds, but some can make a decent table white or icewine. Thankfully a few great cider houses are nearby. Anyways, it's in the heart of the eastern townships that Jean Gadoua and his two brothers decided to set up shop for their brewpub/brewery operation, called brewers and brothers.

I found the place totally by accident, I had a wedding around there and our B&B was only a hundred yards from the pub. The B&B people were late to open up their place, the wedding was in less than an hour and my GF and I needed a place to change. When I saw the sign I figured what the hell. Jean let us use his bathroom, so while Mel was in there fighting to zip up her dress I was able to take in a few samplers.

Too bad it was raining cats and dogs outside, because the patio looked fantastic, it's going to be an awesome place to hang out this summer. The bar inside is warm and intimate with plain, sober décor, and almost everything in there was either hand made by the brothers and their friends or fixed up by them. They made the bar (an interesting green color but it works), made the tables from scratch, repaired, stripped and varnished all the stools and chairs, even did some of the electrical wiring. Really nice job. It's an island bar in the center with tables all around, a little chill out section with couches, and a big round table in a corner, perfect for a game of poker. The place was a little deserted on a Saturday night, but the weather was lousy and the place barely opened a month ago. The shit-kicker bar next door was full of local hicks, hopefully they'll switch to this place eventually, but for now tourists passing through and a few non-conservative natives are the base clientele.

4 Beers were available on-tap, a refreshing blonde, a nice bitter, a surprisingly good brown ale (I say that because I happen to not be a big fan of the style, so it's a feat for me to try one that I actually enjoy. Jean told me it was one of his oldest homebrew recipies, so he's been tweaking it for years) and a very well made dubbel that I had a few glasses of after the wedding reception. Since the place was quiet one of the brothers gave me a quick tour of their brewing equipment in the back, in a big, spacious warehouse. The place looked spotless, always a good sign. They started bottling some of their products, it should hit the stores soon once they get labelling issues figured out. Only food available was chips, they were tempted at first to open up a kitchen but decided to concentrate on Beer for now, kudos to them. They will let you bring in outside food however.

Altogether a great experience, small lineup but I'd rather see 4 solid offerings than a multitude of crap, though Mel was a bit dissapointed that there wasn't a Wit or something more up her tastebud alley. Only about an hour away from Montreal, and really close to the US border.

---Update, Jan 2007---

I've bumped up his scores, as my return visit was just as enjoyable as my first, the Beers were just as good and the service impecabble. And Mel finally got her Wit, and she loved it. They now sell Beer to go, too!
