3.35/5 rDev -12.8%
I've been a couple of times, finally got around to reviewing it.
The beer section is in the back, where 90% of their beers are refrigerated. Selection, was a bit disappointed, as La Barberie, 3 Mousquetaires was low & they only had 1 of D'Ham (Blonde). Would give them lower on selection sale but they had some Cascade Plus & Cascade (!) left, so i went down the middle
Service was very courteous.
Prices were a bit high compared to Joanette & others.
But if you're in the area, it's pretty much your only option for local craft brews.
EDIT: don't know what i was thinking but prices are in line with others (Joanette incl.) boosting the rating

This nice little corner store is situated 10 minutes off the 40 highway when entering Montreal from the West side of town. Parking is no problem, which cannot be said for the downtown beer locations. Staffs are extremely knowledgeable and always ready for help. All top Quebec micros are well represented (Unibroue, Bièropholie, Microbrasserie Charlevoix, Chaudron, La Barberie, Alchimiste...) and prices are very reasonable. Ample glassware choice is also available as well as exotic sausages. Recommended.

On the way out of Montreal, going the slow way out of downtown. Watch out, after, if you are going to the 401 as the road leads directly to Ottawa instead. A very complete set of micro-Quebec beers, including some hard to gets. Staff knows what they have, and what's new, but not what's good, and little on style. Good supply of glasswear. Well organized and big turnover of beer, as everyone from the area pops in to buy something. I still liked Metro Joanette better for selection, but this one is pretty good on lesser names.

Vaudreuil is a small town between Montréal and the Ontario border, split in half by Highway 20. I never would have known this place existed if a friend of mine didn't live a few blocks from there.
It's a convenience store, hidden in a small sector of town not too far from the highway, that specializes in Québec microbrews. The sign on the window shows a monk holding a Beer mug.
The minute you walk in the friendly owner says hi and asks you if you need any help. One time I went there and this guy who obviously knew jack squat about Beer (pointed at Unibroue and called it an import...) was being helped out by one of the employees, being guided to try more accesible Beers first, and I thought she did a great job. They always display new arrivals next to the cash register, and employees always point them out to you and love to talk shop. I don't know how good their English is, but since this place is out west I figure they can get along just fine in Shakespear's language.
The place is rather small, but the refrigerators in the back are chock full of Québec micros, and they have a walk-in section where you can buy cold cases, a feature that many micro-friendly places don't offer. Just about every available Québec micro can be found. Sometimes this place is the first in the greater Montreal area to offer a new brew, sometimes they only receive shipments weeks after the others. Go figure. They also have a few Beers made especially for them by Microbrasserie St-Arnould (I think, I'll check next time and update).
They also have a nice selection of glassware, offer gift packs of micros with Québec products, and sell frozen sausages available in dozens of flavours.
A bit far from my place, but always worth a stop when I'm in the area.
