Came here last night with my wife to celebrate her new job.
First thing i noticed when i came in is that it is a bit smaller than i thought it would be. There's a glass display with various bottles of beer, most of them older versions of existing beers (a Corona stubby!). The whole vibe of the restaurant is upscale a little & trendy. Not bad but found it a bit lacking.
Beer selection is fairly good but the website doesn't match up with the actual selection in the restaurant. But the waitress though was kind enough to bring me a list of beers not available from the menu so i thought that was kind of cool. There's basically 3 categories for the beers. On-tap is all local stuff (i believe) and pretty extensive. Next is bottled beer available in stores. Locals (Brasseurs de Montreal, Unibroue, McAuslan, Schoune, etc...), imports and such available at the SAQ (Chouffe, Warsteiner, Chimay, etc...) and private imports (St.Louis, Biere du Chateau, Duvel Green, Rochefort, etc...) which is exclusively Belgian. Stay away from the imports available in stores as they are very expensive (a McChouffe was 18,95$/750ml. bottle when you can get it for 7,30$ at the SAQ). Private import beers are a little more expensive than at the Bistro de Bieres Belges and selection not as good but they make up for it by having a good local selection. I ended up taking a La Trappe Tripel and my wife a La Trappe Quadrupel.
Food was very good. Almost all food is cooked with local beers. I had a caribou chili made with Coup de Grisou as an entree and a raclette made with Griffon. My wife had an onion soup made with Boreale Noire and a caribou hamburger made with Boreale Blonde. A bit pricey but the quality is very good and it was delicious. For dessert we shared a cheesecake made with Newcastle (yum!).
Overall, a good restaurant but not one i would go to often as it can be a bit expensive.
