I have been to quite a few Depanneur's in Montreal and this one definitely has the best selection. Highly focused of Quebec beer, but since the provincial scene is so strong, this should not be a problem for any beer lover.

Came here with a group of friends on a recent trip to Montreal.

Bought the following beers:
Dieu du Ciel! Saison du Parc (4-pack)
St-Ambroise Session IPA (473ml cans)
Pit-Caribou IPA Américaine (650ml bottle)

Well laid out store with a very large and diverse selection of Quebec micros. Only some of the beer is refrigerated. But I found some great beers at decent prices and was happy with my purchases. Service was non-existent (employees were up front at the cash till), but I'm sure they would've helped us had we asked. Overall experience was good and I would recommend this store to any beer geek visiting or living in the area.

I'm not sure if this is the same place as the one I visited on Rue Beaubien E. but it has the same name.
I was visiting Montreal this past week and I happened to walk by and stop in. Needless to say, I was humbled by the vast selection they had. This was no ordinary depanneur. It looked like a mecca for beer geeks. I could have spent the whole day there, but unfortunately, I was unfamiliar with about 95% of the local and Canadian craft breweries, so I picked up various beers from the region. The sales staff seemed very knowledgeable and helpful. Next time I return, I'll be better prepared.

The best beer store in Quebec and probably one of the best in Canada. The selection is incredible and always fresh. The service is excellent and everyone working there knows a lot about beer. Don't be fool by the first part of the store which seems like any Montreal corner store, the magic is in the back room were you will find more beers than you will ever need or taste.

Although I've lived in Montreal for some time, this was my first visit to the store. My expectations were high and were, unfortunately, only partially met. Their selection was unbelievable, including all the latest from Brasserie Dunham, Le Castor, and Au Val (which had just released new beers). My issue with their store was service. On two occasions (with different employees), I inquired about certain beers and styles, and was greeted both times with indifferent responses. Despite this, I will probably return, as their selection of QC craft beer is top-notch.

This place is a must stop if you are staying in Montreal. From outside it looks like a dingy little dep (convenience store) but walk to the back and there is a second room well lit with wood floors that has virtually every beer you could ever want brewed in Quebec! They have staff just helping with beer selection and always have the rare (whales) Quebec beers! This is the place to go for Beers while visiting the city and I only wish I lived closer to it. Cheers!

Hi,
this is the place with the best selection i know. They have it all.
And they have everything else that you might need, chips, loto, candy..
but it's a bit pricey.

Great place with an excellent selection of local brews. Prices are high in my opinion. Most beers are increased a good $0.50-1.00 compared to other retailers...

Visited recently and after many recommendations.

Honestly, I don't get it. The selection is no better than any other stores I frequent in my region (NCR - Gatineau) and the prices are about the same. I tried to get service in both French and English and it was pretty mediocre in both. Selection was decent, but as I said nothing worth driving for.

A nice store, decent stock and fair prices. Service could be better. I don't see reason it rates so highly though.

I make the 20 minute drive every second weekend and stock up. You would never realize from the outside, it looks like a ghetto boni-soir, but its actually very well-maintained inside. Keep walking and you'll come to a nice little shop in the back. So many choices and so well organized, by type, and by brewer. Well worth the trip!!! I know theres a few other good places in the city but I havent bothered to check them out because this place is top notch!

Definitely my favourite bottle shop in the city. When you enter the front door, it largely resembles any other well-maintained dépanneur. After walking past the selection of industrial lagers and walking up a step or two, you're greeted by a vast assortment of fine Québec microbrews in the back room. Every month it seems there are new choices I've not yet tried. Some have lamented the price of the bottles here. Being a dep, it's not the cheapest place, but I've yet to see a location in town with as many options on the shelf.

IMHO, a real gem.

Very nice store, if a little out of the way (a lot for me). But well worth passing by if ever in the area.

As others have said, upon entry the place seems like any other dep, but in the back the entire area is dedicated to beers. There is warm beer on shelves and cold in coolers. The majority seems to be in single bottles, but there are some six packs as well as macros, beer-based products, glassware, etc.

The selection is top notch and not only features new and special releases not found elsewhere in MTL, but also has breweries not found elsewhere and less common brews from some breweries that are.

The shelves are arranged by style which is not my favorite way to go about it, but it is an excellent idea for anyone visiting or not well-versed in the beers and breweries of QC. And actually, it just takes a little getting used to and it becomes a very logical set-up.

The freshness of stuff was about what you would find elsewhere, although I found some Moralité on the shelves that was considerably older than in the coolers, so be aware.

Excellent store all-in-all. Straight-up has the biggest selection you'll find. It would logically be a 5 in that category, but its immensity means it is really popular and between that and being in a good spot for a lot of people, it often runs out of popular beers before other, smaller stores.
The best thing about it, though is that since it is a depanneur it stays open till 23h which is really nice, as elsewhere in town late at night your selection is more limited.
