Been there on the same trip to Brouemont.

there is not much to say about this place. nothing really exciting here. My girlfriend and I wanted to give a try their beer and when we finally got service, the said that most of the beer was not available, so the selection was limited. The brews was ok. but not much.
So overall, we want to try out their stuff, but was disapointed, by the service the selection and the beer itself.
But the area is beautifull, during automn when leaves begans to turn red. This is a nice location to get lost and simply chill out.
Lennoxville is a english town with a small university campus near the pub, I guess the vibe is getting wild during session party

Lennoxville is a quaint little college town in the Eastern Townships, and wouldn’t look out of place in New England. Even the language barrier here is non-existent, as everyone in town is of loyalist descent and the school, Bishop’s U, is Anglophone. That’s what I was here for, to cheer on my alma mater U of M as they went on to kick their purple asses. We had to celebrate, and why not check out Quebec’s oldest licensed brewpub only a few yards away from the campus.

The brewery complex is in a separate building right next door, so I couldn’t really check it out. The pub looks like a really fun undergrad hangout. Island bar, some sections with beaten up booths, a pool room, displays with a ton of old cans brought in by some of the patrons (their names are written underneath them) we sat next to the big screen to look at the ball game, not too far from the divvy, graffiti-clad toilets that compound the fact that this is a student’s joint. The place was pretty quiet as we came in, they just opened.

The lone waitress came along soon after and broke down the menu for us in a very simplistic but effective manner. The beer I was most looking forward to try, the bitter, was out so I went with the stout instead. The rest were pretty basic English styles, a blonde, amber and brown ales. Beers were okay, the stout was my favorite of the lot. Nothing to go crazy about, but decent value since the pints were dirt cheap.

The waitress eventually came back for our food orders, and apologized in advance as the food waiter didn’t show up and she never did this before. I had a feeling she was in for a long night when I walked by the kitchen and it totally reeked of wacky tabacky. She had the menu written down on a piece of cardboard and was barely legible. Basic pub fare was offered, wings, nuggets, chicken burgers, fish and chips, steak and a cold cut turkey club. No complaints about the food, looks like Cheech and Chong know how to cook!

I wouldn’t drive an hour and a half from Montreal just to hit this place, but if you’re in the Sherbrooke area it’s worth a detour. I’m glad there wasn’t a bar like this near my campus, my GPA was bad enough as it was!

In the heart of Lennoxville (now part of Sherbrooke) lies what I understand to be one of the easter townships olders brewpubs. I thought I'd check it out while on vacation in this region.

Offerings are typical british style brews (pale ale, bitter, stout) and american style cream ales, and light ale. We had lunch, and I had a pint of thier flagship brew : lion pride ale.

Also, right beside the pub/restaurant is tha actual brewery. I just poped in the back door to end up chatting with the guy who brews. Very modest little opperation but still quite impresive. Typical brew day is 2 batches of 200 gallons. They sell thier products on the spot (500 ml and 1.9 l growlers available) and I got my hands on thier british offerings.

Set in a old victoria style home, this is quite a nice little pub. Don't hesitate to hunt this place down if your around!
