This is a great little store in the midst of what I perceive as kind of a dead zone for good beer. There is even a beer-based restaurant right next door that (I think) may be related to this store. Anyway, it is a medium-sized store-front type area, nothing too fancy. There is glassware and sixers on one wall, cold singles/bombers on another, an island with other bombers and a big sausage counter near the cash register.
The beer is actually very good selection-wise. They have most of DDC, Charlevoix, Dunham (lots, actually), BdM, etc., etc. There is also quite a bit available in six-packs. However, singles would appear to be the main thrust. As with anywhere, the freshness on the IPAs should be scrutinized. This is especially true when you realize where this place is. It really hit home for me when I saw very popular Dunham IPAs from a few months ago still on the shelves. These are beers that were gone if you blinked on the island. Regardless, I got one and it was not bad at all. Just be conscious.
They also have a wide variety of very good sausages and related food-stuffs. I think that it is all made there, but am not sure. The name certainly implies as much, but I did not ask. Despite that, the sausage is very good and they have all kinds. The employees are friendly and very knowledgeable about the beer and the products that they have. My first experience with them was a mix-a-six and some saucissons that I got as a gift from someone who knows nothing about beer. The reason I bring this up is that is was very, very well-selected I thought. A good mix of different styles, flavors, etc. I was impressed. This last time when I visited I did not get help but they were helping others and seemed to know their stuff.
This is a great place that I hope continues to do good business. I will most certainly swing by when I head to Bois-de-Fillion in the future.

UPDATED REVIEW: Second of five places i visited on Sept. 25.

So this is their brand new digs. Very nice with more space though not a lot more. I'm knocking off a half point for selection as he seemed to have better at the old place. Among the ones available that aren't listed in my original review: Le Naufrageur, Lac St-Jean, Trois Mousqutaires & Charlevoix. Still, this place does have quality beers and is still a very worthy destination.

ORIGINAL REVIEW (OCT. 2008): About 25 minutes north of Montreal is a cozy little town called Bois-des-Filion and within it is this nice little gem. Not too far from Autoroute 640 (3 minutes away).

Saucisserie is french for sausage shop and there's lots of them here. I bought some orange-ginger, apple-bacon and cajun-raisin sausages. They also have lots of marinades, cheeses, spreads and of course, sauerkraut. The website is not entirely up to date but it gives you an idea of what products they have.

Of course, they have beer also. Lots to choose from with a slant to the northern microbreweries. Dieu du Ciel, Bieropholie, Saint-Arnould, Barberie, Brasseurs & Freres, Au Maitre Brasseur and Le Lievre are all well represented (i'm probably forgetting a few). I bought some Double & Triple from Bieropholie (reviews forthcoming) and La Complice from DDC. Most beers are refrigerated with a small portion at room temp.

The owner is extremely knowledgable with the beers and was ready to recommend some to me. He said he will be opening a restaurant early in the new year with microbrews available on tap and by the bottle to go with a bistro-like menu.

This place is a real find and definitely worth checking out. Too bad it's kind of far from where i live because i would come here more often.
