I visited Brutopia on a weekday night and the place was pretty quiet. No problem here, though. We were looking for somewhere quiet where we could sit and talk.

I loved the atmosphere in this place. Great lighting in an old stone and brick structure. It was perfect for sitting, talking, and quaffing brew. The bartender was very nice and helpful about explaining the different beers that they made.

I would like to go back to Brutopia whenever I make it to Montreal again. It would be great to see what the place is like on a weekend when things are (hopefully) a little more lively.

Quiet mid afternoon - perhaps not typical time, but happy to have visited this venerable institution and was certainly not disappointed.

Went on a weeknight so it was kind of quiet, but the beers were bland and a bit flat. Waitress was nice enough to bring samples, but all underwhelmed.

Decent food, good service, but their beer is really pretty bad. Even their water doesn't taste great (they may make the beer with it...). All of their beers seem to have the same odd aftertaste.

Ordered what was branded an "IPA". No idea what the atrocity was in the glass handed to me, though. Considering we found this place through BA, we were convinced we were at the wrong place, but sure enough, this was the place.

Their beers are not great. Benelux has much better beers. They do 10oz pours and pints, but I wish they did samplers.

Great vibe. We went there by chance and liked it so much we came back for a concert the next night.

There was a straight 10 bartender working there.

Random collection of rooms and patios. Poor quality beer but the service was solid and the food was alright. Would not re-visit with so many great places in town

Toujours une groupe sur-scène, des bières plusieurs, et des amis partout!

I love Brutopia. The beer is outstanding and I would recommend the place to anyone. The only thing that gets me is the lack of innovation. I doubt that has anything to do with the brewer(s). I'll assume their location requires them to pump out the same beers over and over again. That's alright but I wish they were a little more adventurous. Overall the place is great, laid back, and perfect for sipping on a pint.
