This is a newer place in the area and is, as far as I know, the only place with a decent beer selection. It is definitely the only place that brews its own beer. They have a few rotating taps of their beer and a decent little selection of private import bottles. The beer itself was pretty good. I had their oatmeal stout on nitro. It was pretty well made with a great feel and a nice roasted nut taste. I also had a sample of another stout that wasn't too great. Not outright bad, though. I think that the tap list changes regularly.

There is a small terrace on McGill and a bar with tables inside. The brewing area (which is TINY!) is visible and the bathrooms are a labyrinthine mind-fuck. They have a full menu that seems to be set up to feed large groups. The service was good. I was walked through the menu, he gave me a sample, he walked me through flight prices, etc. I had the beer and a sandwich. The food is pretty damn steep, but everywhere in this part of town is. The pulled pork I had was extremely good and paired well with the beer. The decor is interesting with things salvaged from the nunnery from which it takes its name.

Excellent beer and food. Service was so indifferent that I had to get up from the table to ask for another beer. We tried the Camellia a nice wheat beer, Marquis, a very good brown ale and their excellent oatmeal stout. Pulled pork sandwich and grilled cheese with bacon was our food which were both excellent, but more refined food is also available. We ate inside which was nice, but tables outside looked like fun too. They have a good selection of bottles that we did not try. Good choice in old Montreal.

Came here last Saturday night and we actually thought for a split second that it was closed because it was literally empty. An employee rushes to greet us as soon as we come in, obviously happy to see someone come in and his remarks reflected that. Had a seat at the bar and the girl explained the menu, pours, etc... Very knowledgeable. Prices are for 3 sizes (13oz, 19oz. and bigger) and the on tap menu is split between regular and strong beers. TDD, 3M, Hopfenstark and their house beer.

Disappointed that on a Saturday night it was this deserted. Hopefully it's an isolated case (maybe the rain?) because having a brewpub in the Old Port is a great idea.

As of Aug 22, no license to sell house beers. Tap lineup consists of 9 Quebec beers, ranging from a blonde to a barley wine, with stops at an IPA, multiple triples, saison, browns, and a porter. Bottle list predominately Belgian.

Draft beers served in five sizes, ranging from a 2.5 oz sampler to a 22oz mug, depending on ABV. All pours served with an excellent head at at proper temperature, which may be too warm for unexpecting folk.

Prices seems on par with Montreal. Not cheap, but it is what it is.

Was excited to try house beers (it was listed as a microbrewery after all), but wasn't displeased to settle with locals.

Didn't try the food.

Cool space, really nice servers and bartenders. I'd definitely go back, and would like to when their own beers start flowing.
