McAuslan Brewing is part of Montréal's 1st generation of micro-breweries. It built its reputation by brewing several very sessionable ales, like the classic McAuslan Oatmeal Stout and St-Ambroise Pale Ale, along with a few seasonal offerings. It is now more of a large regional craft brewer than a micro-brewery but still maintains an interesting palate of brews and has recently added a terrace adjacent to one of Montréal's busier cycle paths so enthusiasts and newbies alike can enjoy their brews on tap in a relaxed urban setting without worrying about parking.

The entrance to their terrace is a bit sketchy, gravel parking lot with potholes beside the brewery. In the back are stairs leading to the terrace itself. It`s nice but the view of the old industrial buildings doesn`t mesh well with the laid-back vibe they are trying to project. Their standard line of products was available which disappoints me. I can get these beers on tap everywhere in the city. It would have been nice if they would have at least one brewery exclusive beer. Alright i guess but nothing to go out of your way for.

The terrace at the Saint Ambroise brewery on the canal is a nice place to enjoy a beer on a nice day. During normal hours it is nice but nothing amazing, however when they have parties or festivals it becomes a really nice place. It is located right on the canal which is really cool and adds to the environment.

The selection of beer is nothing to complain about but the prices are up there. The food selection is pretty poor.

Overall it is a cool place and fun to visit but nothing to go out your way for. If you like Saint Ambroise then go.
