Located in the city's financial district and the look and feel reflects that. Mostly filled with "suits" around lunch and after 5:00. They do have a big bar area in the front as well as a large restaurant seating are in the back. The tap list is a mixed bag of locals, a few brews from Quebec and a few imports but overall not too exciting. The bottle and cellar list is incredible though. Tons of stuff from Cantillon, Lost Abbey, Avery, DFH etc. huge selection of barley wines and belgian styles. Some bottles can be a bit pricey though but you do get what you pay for here. The food is excellent weather its appetizers or full out meals, last time I was there I had bacon wrapped shrimp and french fries and they were amazing. They also cook every dish with beer and even have their cookbook for sale. They do a good job of mixing great beer and fancy dining but it lacks the feel of a great beer bar. It still is a great place to go for an occasion or if you feel like getting a rare bottle of something though.
