In 2008, Brasseur de Montréal opened its doors in Griffintown on Ottawa Street. At that time, Griffintown was a promising but underdeveloped neighborhood. The founders were visionaries and wanted to be among the first in this neighborhood which is now booming. Being the pioneers in this area, they have one of the largest terraces in the neighborhood as well as the space to brew their famous beers.
Thanks to the partnership they have with Six Pints since 2016, Brasseur de Montréal products can be found throughout the province of Quebec!
Some of the crowd favorites are the Normanville HAZY IPA, Griffintown Blonde Ale and Loxley Rusty Ale. Equally popular are the new limited edition Beaver Lake Forest IPA, Jean-Talon NEIPA, and Maisonneuve, a juicy blackberry IPA. When you visit the restaurant, you can discover the brewers' monthly creations called BDM Lab. They are available in their''Arrière Boutique'', restaurant and in a few specialty beer stores exclusively.
If you would like to learn more about the brewing process, a 45-minute guided tour is available, along with a tasting of a galopin menu. You can book the experience for up to 10 people by phone.
Rest assured, there is a great food menu to go with your beer tasting. With an on-site smokehouse and by integrating their beers into the menu, their specialties include fish and chips, poutine with beer sauce, and a delicious cheeseburger. Other creative dishes on the menu is the grilled sausage with pickles, sauerkraut, and beer mustard.
If you are not familiar with the different beers offered, visit the restaurant to discover the Tour de l'Île (5 beers among the selection), the Wellington Bridge (4 beers among the selection), or buy the tasting packs at the sales point near you.
Every Tuesday, you can enjoy''working comic'' nights with Gab Dagenais, Radi, and special guests every week for $15 payable at the door. They offer a discount on large pints at $6 a pint and $5 tacos.
By checking out their website and social media networks, you can find out who is behind this local enterprise which makes the experience even better.
All beers are brewed on site and the Arrière Boutique allows you to order online and pick up your order 2 hours later. You can even buy glasses, pints, hats and even a hoodie with the Brasseur de Montréal logo!
