Montreal brewpubs

Jump to last reply

Micheline posted a comment on Montreal pubs a couple of weeks ago that I have only now caught up with. I have some suggestions which I am putting here so others can take a look too.
Les Quebecois are serious about beer and support a range of small breweries. Montreal also boasts a rich and frothy assortment of brewpubs. One source for research is http://www.ratebeer.com/Places/FindPlacesByCity.asp?CountryID=39&StateID=61&City=Montreal&Show=1
My drinking sways towards the east side of the city; that is, east of St-Laurent Boulevard. Here are my choices in that area:
L'Amere a Boire 2049 Rue Saint-Denis. http://www.amereaboire.com
A nook on the north edge of the so-called Latin Quarter which draws a friendly mixture from this vital neighbourhood. The repertoire of brews is carefully balanced and it is hard to have only one. Buy a tall glass as a souvenir.
Le Saint Bock Brasserie, 1749 St-Denis. http://www.lesaintbock.com
In the heart of the Latin Quarter, not far from the immense Trois Brasseurs branch and well worth the short walk to escape the 3 Brewers' industrial blandness. Saint-Bock can turn into a young people’s party on weekend nights but always offers a strong range of brews.
Le Cheval Blanc, 809 Ontario St. E. http://www.lechevalblanc.ca/index-an.php In the vicinity of the Latin Quarter, it is said to have been the first licensed brewpub in Montreal. Its brands are sold in some stores. A little less to my taste than the others. I’ve given the link to the English-language website page, which contains nothing much except a map; the French page is more informative.
Dieu du Ciel, 29 Laurier Ave. W. in the newly chic Mile End area northeast of McGill University although a few blocks west of St-Laurent. http://www.dieuduciel.com A smallish neighbourhood bar, but its reputation as a brewer is spreading. The list of draughts changes regularly, often experimenting with fruit flavours. Packed and noisy late on weekend nights.
Chez Baptiste, 1045 Mont-Royal Avenue east. http://chezbaptiste.com Not a brewpub but with a fine selection of local beers (and ciders) on draught, Chez Baptiste is in the centre of the Plateau, the most Quebecoise of neighbourhoods, east of St-Denis. Full of young people sopping up the traditions. Even the name refers to a folkloric figure, and it is the only pub I know of that doesn’t have a cash register.
