This is essentially a taproom for Hopfenstark Brewery, which is just outside the city, though the list of about twenty taps includes guest beers. I visited a couple of times while in Montreal recently--both early enough in the day that it wasn't yet crowded.

The bar and furniture are rustic wood, and the decor is minimal. Tasteful and immaculate.

Fred--the Hopfenstark brewer/owner who opened this place last fall--worked behind the bar. He's friendly, very enthusiastic about the beers, and was quick to offer samples--particularly of some mixed-style beers he had created.

Some of the beers were outstanding--the saisons really shined, and were better than their BA ratings suggest. And even the beers that weren't my favorites were still quite good.

Station Ho.st doesn't have a kitchen, but you're welcome to bring food from nearby restaurants.

Special tappings are scheduled early the week for particular cask ales, barrel-aged beers, or hard-to-find guest beers.

This is the least-BA-reviewed brewpub in Montreal, so far, and it deserves to be on the map. It's an easy walk from L'Amère à Boire or Le Cheval Blanc. Go. Visit.

Bar opened by Hopfenstark's Fred that predominately features Hopfenstark's brews but also a few guest taps, last night there was DDC and Broadway. Over 20 taps makes it interesting though small qualm; all their regular line-up was there but nothing special or no one-offs. Still, lots of choice. Place is no frills and has wood paneling everywhere. Probably couldn't hold more than 50 people so it is a bit small. I expect great things from this place in the months to come.
