My vocabulary for reviewing non-American establishments is rather limited, so please take this as a description of personal experience and not of the objective worth of the place.
Basically, it was a good, cute little joint with solid beer and food. Woody interior kinda like what you get when midwestern joints try to look like English pubs--steel tip darts, tall tables, a pleasant creekiness wherever you step.
The beer was nothing extraordinary, but everything I had was a solid (if pedestrian) example of the style. Beers tend towards the European, with dryer/spicier hop profiles and yeasty finishes leaning towards the heavy end.
Food is Montreal pub fare. This is the place where I learned that Canadians don't know how to differentiate between salsa and mariana sauce. The frites were good, as for some weird and inexplicable reason these people know how to fry potatoes better than we Americans do. Bar staff was all quite friendly.

I love Brutopia. The beer is outstanding and I would recommend the place to anyone. The only thing that gets me is the lack of innovation. I doubt that has anything to do with the brewer(s). I'll assume their location requires them to pump out the same beers over and over again. That's alright but I wish they were a little more adventurous. Overall the place is great, laid back, and perfect for sipping on a pint.
