Vices et Versa is the best beer bar(it's not a brewpub) in Montreal - period. It features 30+ draught beers from Quebec craft breweries that are unknown to most Americans or even to Canadians from other provinces. They aren't distributed outside Quebec but are as good as any I've had in North America. How often does one get to explore a beer list containing 33 unfamiliar craft beers?

The interior is appealing with exposed brick walls and a really nice terrasse in back during good weather. The place is mellow, relaxed, and doesn't feel like a typical bar. It's location is a good way from downtown and a little north of the Mile End area, but can be easily reached by the frequent St. Laurent bus. This keeps it free from tourists.

They only serve light snacks but there are plenty of restaurants nearby(it's on the edge of Montreal's little Italy). I've been here many times and have always found the staff friendly and helpful with no hint of the snobbiness a previous review referred to.

I highly recommend making the effort to get to Vices et Versa and spending a lengthy session. It can easily be combined with a trip to Dieu du Ciel and I often come here when I tire of the large crowds that flock to that brewpub.

I absolutely love love love this place, it has the greatest atmosphere during the summer in their backyard terrace. The trees are overgrown into the seating area and it creates a very nice ambiance. The beer selection is very nice, with a good variety of local initiatives. Prices are reasonable. However, I do not recommend the food, I was very disappointed with my sausage selection, as it was a full 10 pounds of bread, with a small endowed sausage in the middle...they should do better!
